Hanging Styles

There’s no general formula dictating what style to hang your pictures or rules stating what you can combine them with.

The idea is to hang your pictures at the centre of attention where they’ll make the best possible impact. We have some picture frame hanging styles below to help give you inspiration. When deciding a style you should also consider whether the pictures will mostly be viewed when standing or when seated. As a general rule, it’s advisable to position your pictures along lines, which could mean using existing contours in the room such as door frames, furniture, window ledges, etc. or imaginary reference lines. If you want to hang a picture on the side of the room, rather than in the middle of the wall, it’s important to create a visual counterbalance with another piece of furniture or accessory. And while vertically arranged pictures will make your walls taller, the horizontally grouped images will make the room feel wider.

The Statement Piece

One wall, one picture. A particularly great photo, or one that you are especially fond of, deserves a place of honour. Whether the picture is a large canvas wrap or a small fine art print, if it has a whole wall to itself, it automatically becomes the centre of attention. You will want to create a visual balance with your furnishings and observe physical proportions.

Salon Style

People often think of the gallery wall, wall cluster, or salon style hang as a form of “organized chaos” in which numerous closely packed images cover almost an entire wall. While this manner of hanging art may ignore traditional hanging lines, there are other factors that connect the art. They could be pictures that are stylistically similar, similar or identical frames or mat boards or pictures of a similar size. A thread that ties it all together brings a certain peacefulness to the wall: an organization to the chaos.

Hung in a Row

Whether you line your pictures up vertically or horizontally, hanging them in a row is a classic way to arrange them. If you have pictures of varying sizes, you have two options.

  1. You can align them along one of the edges, or
  2. You can arrange them so that the centre of the images are all centred along the same imaginary line.

On the Edge

As in our Hang in a Row example, all of the pictures are oriented along the top edge. While the pictures themselves can be of varying length and width, the distance between the pictures should always be the same. 

The Picture Grid

Much like a checkerboard, the photos here are arranged in a strict geometric pattern. The borders or frames of your pictures should line up along the edges and the distance between pictures should be the same in all directions. The Picture Grid works best when all of the pictures are the same size. Identical frames create a particularly strong overall effect.

Inside the Lines

Here, the pictures are somewhat casually hung on the wall. You don’t have to adhere to any equal distances between pictures, viewing axes, or edges. To give the image ensemble harmony here, arrange them in the confines of an imaginary geometric shape: circle, oval, rectangle, square, etc. When hanging the pictures, start with the largest one and then arrange the smaller pictures around it.

Symmetrical Display

We perceive symmetry as harmonic, which is why we naturally tend to arrange things symmetrically. The same goes for groups of pictures. For this type of symmetrical display, you will need at least three pictures, and two of them should be the same size. First, determine where your horizontal or vertical line of symmetry is going to be, then measure and position the pictures very carefully, as irregularities are particularly noticeable in this kind of display.

Picture Ledge

Whether your pictures are standing along the floor or on a wall-mounting picture ledge, leaning them against the wall means you don’t have to drill any extra holes. You can choose from all kinds of pictures to go on ledges or to lean against the wall, and they give your wall more visual structure. Additionally, you can combine pictures on a ledge with other keepsakes and small home accessories. The biggest advantage of this kind of display: pictures can be moved or rearranged at any time.

Different Perspectives

One subject as seen from different points of view. Create a special display by presenting several different takes on the same subject. This looks great when the pictures are hung in a row, along an edge, symmetrically, or even hung around a corner.

Split Image

Split images are becoming quite popular lately.

A work of art split into more than one piece is called a split image (other common terms are “diptych” or “triptych”, depending on how many sections the picture is split into). To make sure the big picture lives up to its potential, the individual sections should be evenly aligned with very little space between them.

Around the Corner

Hanging pictures around the corner is slightly out of the ordinary. It can be pleasing to the viewer, who only experiences the full compostion when looking around the corner. For the best results, make sure the pictures complement each other, and that they are not too different in size or form. This is also a great way to display different perspectives on the same subject.

Wall Collage

Collage is very popular in the visual art world, probably because, as the famous philosopher, Aristotle said: “The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” The collage is composed of numerous different images put together. For your personal work of art, you can combine whatever you like, whether they are photo prints, postcards, or fine art prints. You can do this directly on the wall, or you can mount the pictures on a backing panel first. Framing the ensemble is also a possibility.
