Wall decoration format
Wall decoration: you can find them in every room, from homes to office buildings. However, there are often still questions about which format fits exactly in which space and which format should be adhered to. On this page we will give you advice about this!
How large should my wall decoration be?
For many people it is difficult to estimate which dimensions of the wall decoration should be used for which room. We recommend the 4/7 rule. This means that the width of your paintings should be 57% of the width of the wall. Research shows that this is the optimal art-to-wall ratio and is seen as the most attractive!
The ideal hanging height for a painting is 1,45 m from the floor to the center of the work. This setup is usually also used for museums and galleries. A second way is to hang the center of the work at eye level.
In addition, there are other factors that you have to take into account when hanging wall decorations. Is there furniture facing the wall, are there windows and doors nearby and how big is the wall? These are all considerations for the size of your wall decoration! There are a number of basic rules for this, but also just go by your own feeling. The most important thing is that you are happy with your wall decoration! Interested? Then quickly go to our webshop.

Different locations for your wall decoration
There are several factors that you need to take into account when you want to hang wall decoration, depending on the location where it will be hung. We have made an overview for you per room to clarify all this!
above the couchWe see that many people like to hang a painting above or behind the couch. This space will look its best with the help of the following tips!
• Make sure that the wall decoration is at least 2/3 of the length of the sofa, but no wider than the sofa itself! If this does happen, the images will take over in the room.• Hang several small paintings together to create the ideal size you need.• It is best to leave 20 - 25 cm space from the top of the sofa to the bottom of the frame.• Do you put several photos together? Then make sure that there is 5 - 15 cm of space between the individual pieces.
above the stairs
In many homes and offices, the space above the stairs is unused. This is very unfortunate as this is an excellent place to hang wall decorations! Below are some tips:
• Keep in mind that you hang each photo with a distance of 145 - 155 cm between the step and the center of the work.Of course everyone wants their wall to look sleek and tidy. • So make sure you use the same distances for every wall decoration.• When decorating your wall, make sure you don't hang a picture above every step (unless the pictures are very small), but rather leave a few steps in between.
