Is this frame hung to high?


My wife and I decorated our guest room, but a few people had mentioned the frame above the bed seems really high.

We hung it slightly higher so if you were to sit up in bed you wouldn't hit your head on it.

The frame is 7" from the ceiling and 20" from the top of the headboard (at center). When I sit up in bed it's about 4" above my head (and I'm pretty short).

What is your opinion? Should we lower it?

It does look high. I just checked our master bedroom. We have 7 1/2' ceilings. With a picture frame that is 24" deep, it is 12" from the ceiling and 12" from the headboard. But our headboard is taller than yours. My vote: Lower it some.

Looks fine to me. Hung too high is in the eye of the beholder, and also depends on how tall everyone is, that visits your place.

Do you entertain lots of people in your bedroom? Chances are, you are going to be the only ones that see it. It does look a little high to me though.

I have 9' ceilings so I hang my pictures higher. Mother inlaw always makes comments. I don't care I like them higher.

Sometimes, you need to hang them higher...I have paintings
hung high over my tv unit in the family room. To me it looks good,
others may think it looks 'not right?" but, I had no choice;
if I had a choice like the OP does, I would hang them slightly lower.

My vote is to lower it. It looks too close to your ceiling.

Very nice guest room.

I almost bought that same picture.

I would definitely lower it - looking good other than that though.

The bride told me you should be able to stand in front of a picture and not tilt your head to see the center. Works for me.

If you pile pillows on the bed, the height might be fine. But as is, I'd say lower it just a tad
