You have a wall and want a new painting to grace the space. Simple enough. Before you #findart2love — or even the color or style — I recommend you first consider size. Why? It’s all about the impact — to your room and the artwork.
These “feelings” occur because human beings have an innate sense of balance and proportion. Less-than-ideal sizing and placement will just seem “off.”
Let’s test this: Here are some examples where the wall is roughly six feet wide — 72 inches. The rule of thumb is that artwork should be 50-66% (1/2 to 2/3) the width of the space. Vertically, the center of the painting should be at eye-level — the standard is 57” from center to the floor (but could be a few inches higher as needed).
What do we see here?
Knowing these rules, I would recommend the owner look for a painting that 36-40” wide. And because it will hang alone on a vertical wall, I would opt for a painting that has a square or portrait (vertical) orientation. ( I would save a horizontal painting to hang over a mantel or furniture).
This comparison makes it easy to understand how important it is to consider size first when selecting art for a special wall. Here are a few additional “rules of thumb” to think about:
