The dining room is a great space for art. Even in homes with an open layout, where the dining room is part of the kitchen or family room, there’s often wall space just waiting for the right pieces of artwork. When positioning the artworks on your walls, consider your vantage point to ensure you can enjoy the view while seated at the table. The layout of your furniture can help guide where you position the art on the wall, for instance, if you have a buffet table or sideboard, use a tried-and-true rule: hang the center of the artwork at approximately 57” from the floor. This ensures ease of viewing the art while standing or sitting. For a wall without furniture, create an arrangement of several pieces of varying sizes to spark dinner conversation, and even whet the appetite. Though it may feel unnatural, consider hanging the entire arrangement closer to the floor or ceiling than you might be accustomed to. This bold approach can create a dramatic statement that keeps everyone at the dinner table long after the meal is done. Art and food are perfect partners in dining.
