Proper height for hanging pics???


What is the rule for the proper height for hanging pictures in the home? I see alot of eye level people saying but if Im 6'2 and your 5'3 do you think eye levels are the same? What is the best ruling on the height a pic should be hung?

I would go for eye level, or just below. If you room has a low ceiling, you could go slightly below this is order to give the impression of more space.

Cieling hieght plays an important roll in picture hieght, but the eye level hieght can be boring if all pictures are at that same hieght. Some diversity would be appealing. Just my Opinion.

Since Jinnv08 keeps dragging up these old threads...

Eye level and everybody over 5'8" sing with me...

"they got tiny little hands and tiny little feet, don't you know short people are...., don't want no short people round here...."

second verse same as the first.....
