Measure Your Wall

The first step in selecting the right frame size is to measure the available wall space. Determine the height and width of the area where you plan to hang your art or photos and write them down; these measurements will serve as your reference point.

Know Your Space

The size of the room and its purpose can greatly influence the choice of frame size. Rooms such as a living room can accommodate larger frames that can create a focal point, while hallways are likely more suitable for smaller frames. When in doubt, opt for slightly larger sizes than you think you need. It'll appear as a bold statement choice and appear less like a sizing accident.

Mock It Up

Try out different frame sizes with cardboard cutouts or paper templates. Tape them to the wall to get a better feel for how the frames will look in your space. 

Frame Placement

A good rule of thumb is to hang artwork at "eye level" which can be different for everyone. Also consider the placement of furniture. Typically frames should be hung 4-8" above furnishings. The frame should also complement the furniture's size too. A general guideline is to aim for frame to be about two-thirds the width of the furniture below.

Frame Width Matters

Don't forget to consider the width of the frame itself and how it complements the style of your art and decor. Thicker frames grab attention and work well with bigger pieces, while thinner frames are more subtle and can enhance smaller works.
