The Basics of hanging artwork

Where to Hang

 Installing artwork at the right height is of paramount importance. We follow a museum guideline of 156cm from the floor to the centre of the image. This may have to adjust depending on the size of your wall space.should be lower.

Consider the colour scheme of your space carefully before selecting which room to hang your artwork in. Fine art materials and colours in your art and framing can have a dramatic impact upon an interior design. Are you looking to create harmony or stark contrast?


Care should be taken to hang your art piece in an area where it will not become damaged by heat, ultraviolet (UV) light rays or humidity. Try not to hang your framed artwork or photographs in direct sunlight. Choose subdued lighting effects that will not reflect into the glass, especially when you are not using non-reflective glass.

Create a Safe Space 

Conserve your fine art by hanging it at a safe distance from damp areas such as bathrooms, spaces with poor ventilation and steamy kitchen areas. Moisture and humidity can damage artwork significantly over time, potentially ruining pieces of financial, cultural or personal value.

Protect your fine art by installing it at a safe distance from direct heat sources such as radiators and electric heaters. Fluctuations in heat can cause long-term damage to an artwork which can lead to costly art restoration treatments!
