How to Get Picture-Perfect Results
At Mr. Handyman of Princeton and Robbinsville, we always recommend using a team of highly trained professionals for hanging pictures. DIY picture hanging frequently results in damaged walls and crooked pictures. However, some homeowners are determined to try it on their own. If you are set on trying to hang your items, there are a few tips we’d like to provide to help you avoid some of the most common pitfalls of hanging your pictures. Our top picture-hanging tips include the following:
- Hang all pictures so that the center of the image is at eye level for the average person (typically considered 57 inches from the floor)
- Use sturdy hardware that is made to support the weight of your picture, avoiding small or flimsy nails
- Whenever possible, hang a picture from a stud
- Before hanging hardware, have someone hold the picture in its future spot and look at it from a distance to gauge how it will look
What to Consider When Hanging a Picture
There are many things to consider before hanging a wall item, from the weight to the exact location. When you work with us, we will guide you through every step of the process. Picture hanging may seem simple, but we focus on the details to ensure you get picture-perfect results. It can be helpful to think about some important factors ahead of time. Some things that homeowners should consider before hanging a picture include:
- The desired height of the picture
- The weight of the picture, including the weight of the frame
- The location of nearby studs
- The material of your walls, such as drywall, wood paneling, or sheetrock
- The type of hardware you would like to use to hang the picture
- The difficulty of leveling the picture after it is hung
What Is the Best Way to Hang a Picture?
We always use the most effective methods for hanging pictures, but the best way to hang a picture will differ based on the situation. We firmly place screws into studs whenever possible and use specially-made picture mounting hardware. When a stud isn’t available, we can use a hollow wall anchor, like a toggle bolt, molly bolt, or spiral anchor.
How Do You Hang Pictures Perfectly?
Professional picture hangers, like ours, actually use math, equipment, and years of training to hang pictures perfectly. We locate wall studs and measure the height of the picture before doing anything else. Experienced wall hangers use methods and formulas to calculate the ideal position of a picture. When a picture involves a wire, we have a complex formula that allows us to calculate the slack and hang height ahead of time. That is the kind of quality results that you get from working with the area’s top picture-hanging team.
How Do You Minimize Wall Damage?
While hanging heavy pictures typically involves inserting screws or nails into the wall, we take great care to minimize wall damage when hanging pictures. If items are light enough, we may be able to use special adhesive hardware that avoids putting holes in your walls. Further, our team can perform drywall repairs. So, if your walls have holes or damage from previous attempts to hang pictures, we can repair them before we hang your new item.
