Several portrait sizes and finishes are available for you to choose from. Standard Portrait sizes are as follows (inches): 20 by 24, 16 by 20, 1-10 by 13, 1-8 by 10, 2-5 by 7s, and 4-3.5 by 5s.
Seeing everyone’s face expression is crucial. For a standard size living room, with a viewing distance of eight to ten feet, a face height of four to six inches is warmly recommended. Any smaller and face expressions are lost. You will not get the viewing amazement and convenience you wish. A lot of people used to think that standard eight by ten inches of their family are okay. On the other hand, once you project photos on the wall, you see just how much better a larger size portrait really is. Since family is an important part of our life proper portrait size is critical. Basically, viewing distance from the displayed portrait to the main living room sofa will determine portrait size. For example, with four to six inches face sizes in the portrait, you can clearly see the nose, mouth as well as the eyes. Therefore, you’ll be able to enjoy the expression on faces of the loved one(s) without having to walk up to the photo. This four to six inches recommendation is based on an average viewing distance of 8 – 10’. Furthermore, horizontal wall space also helps determine the best portrait’s size. Basically, the portrait should utilize one half to three fourths of the available horizontal wall space. For instance, an 11 by 14’’ photo over a couch would not look good. When making a size decision, consider frame sizes as well.
