Hang 5 pictures: Unlimited possibilities!

Hang 5 pictures side by side
The simplest solution is to arrange the five pictures in a row. Especially if you have several pictures of the same size, the pictures look particularly harmonious when hanging in rows. The symmetry comes into its own when all five pictures are hung up at the same height and at a distance from each other. At the intervals, make sure that these are not too large so that the series of pictures is perceived as one unit. Of course, you can also arrange such a series with pictures of different sizes by aligning the pictures along an edge or an imaginary center line.
Group 5 pictures - grid hanging
Strictly speaking, we are not talking about a classic grid hanging in this example, as this usually consists of a straight number of picture frames. This makes the symmetry particularly effective. However, since both the three upper and the two lower ramen are mounted at the same height, this hanging nevertheless results in a harmonious overall work. If you also make sure that the two lower frames are placed exactly in the middle of the two upper left and right frames, the relationship between the pictures will be even stronger.
Align 5 pictures along a center line
Do you have a particularly unusual or beloved picture, which perhaps sets itself apart visually from the other four pictures? This motif deserves a place of honor in the middle of the hanging. This attracts the most attention. The other 4 pictures can be placed next to the picture on the left and right. Make sure that your picture in the middle is at eye level. The symmetry of this hanging results from the fact that the outer opposite pictures hang exactly at the same height.
Hang pictures in ascending order
Start with the left picture, which you should hang slightly below eye level. You should hang the lower edge of the middle picture exactly on the middle of the left picture. This aligns your pictures along an imaginary diagonal, which makes the picture group particularly harmonious. By the way, the diagonal arrangement of the picture frames makes your walls look higher. In addition to the above-mentioned hangings, you also have the option of attaching your pictures in an L or U shape to the wall.
