    main forum wasn't much help. I looked up standard picture height and it seems like 57"-60" is normal. I put it at 60" but it seems a bit low. Thoughts?

    I just measured a random picture hanging around here and it was 51" high. But over a fireplace makes it looks weird that low.

    i think i need to find a taller picture. if i hang it any higher, i think it may still look weird.

    the problem is not the pictures height, it's that the picture doesn't fit the size of the spot. it's not going to look right no matter where it is on that wall

    12-15 inches from the fire place will look proper
