The single hanging
A single picture can be easily hung up. The center of the image should be positioned at 1.55m above the ground. This is the ideal height to bring motifs to eye level. So average people have an image in the perfect field of vision. A common mistake is to place images too high.
Horizontally, lines should also be picked up when hanging a single picture, for example in the middle of the wall or in the middle above the sofa. Sometimes, however, the measured centre is not the same as the perceived centre. Then it is best to orientate on one' s own feeling.
The picture frame should be hanging straight. An exception to this are old buildings, for example, where the centre is not always completely clear due to the strongly sloping ceilings or floors. In the ideal case, one orients oneself on the perceived scale in relation to the ceiling or the floor, so that the picture blends in with its surroundings.
Our customers did it this way - examples from the HALBE blog:
The picture should of course hang where it is well and gladly seen. When placing the picture directly opposite a window, however, the choice of glass must be taken into account to avoid reflections. Direct sunlight should be avoided to protect the image from UV rays. However, if it cannot be avoided, the picture frame glass must have a high UV protection, especially with originals.
A picture should not be too small or too large for the wall. If it is too small, it will sink to the wall and appear lost. With a large passepartout and thus a larger picture frame you can give the picture extra size, but there are limits to this procedure somewhere. If the wall is too small, i.e. the free space next to the frame towards furniture, doors or corners is too small, it appears squeezed. Then a different place should be found.
