How to hang a painting: practical guide and tips

The ideal thing and what you will see that all the houses and design standards recommend, is that when you doubt about how high to hang a painting, you end up putting the center of the painting at eye level. That is as long as there is no furniture on the wall (like in a hallway). If there were furniture (as in a living-dining room), the painting would have to be centered in the space between the furniture below and the ceiling.

Step 2: Prepare the frame

The hook to hang the frame or the sockets on the back is not always included, so before continuing, you have to make sure you have everything you need. If you had to place any of these components, the most important thing to remember is that the level comes into play here to place the hooks in the exact appropriate measure or height.

Step 3: Prepare the hanging area

To do this, the first thing you have to do is paint a series of marks at the points where you will carry out the placement of the sockets. How? Using the meter and the level in combination and, above all, with great precision. Measure the position of the two points taking the ground as a reference, calculate the distance between the two and make the marks. Measure and measure again before you make a decision. That way you won’t go wrong.
