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.
