Pick the Right Location


Hanging a large picture can be a challenging task, but with the right approach, it can be done effectively and securely.


The first step is to determine the best location for the picture. Consider the size and weight of the picture, as well as the wall's orientation, lighting, and other decorative elements in the room.


Choose a location that has enough space for the picture to be viewed from a distance. It should be at eye level - which is typically around 57 inches from the floor - and centered on the wall. You can also create a gallery wall by hanging several pictures of different sizes in a clustered arrangement.

Picture Weight 

Choose a picture hanging system that can support the weight of your large picture.


AS Hanging Display Systems offers different weight capacities, ranging from 20 to 300 pounds, so you can select the right one for your picture.

For a large and heavy picture, you should use two cables or rods. It will provide additional stability and distributes the weight more evenly, reducing the risk of the picture tilting or falling.

Wall Type

Consider the type of wall you will be hanging the picture on.


AS Hanging Display Systems offers picture hanging systems that are compatible with various wall types, such as drywall, concrete, or brick.
