How To Hang Photo Frame - Height And Distance

I was searching for ways to hang my photo frames on my wall and stumbled upon this useful graphic tutorial. The general rules are:

  • Height – Center of frame should be approximately 1560mm – 1600mm, or eye level.
  • Distance – The gap between each frame should be 1/3 of the length of the photo frame. Avoid keeping them too near (crowded) or too far apart (as if they are not related).

Personally, I prefer sketches over photos, sketches tend to have a sense of honesty. As for photos, if possible, avoid images that shows sadness, loneliness, dying or anything related to it. They are:

  • War, battle, fighting, killing images, anything with blood.
  • Portrait with someone’s back facing towards you.
  • A sad lady, or someone crying or dying
