Hanging Pictures 101

A home is a place where we create precious memories with those that we love, which is why photos are a big part of what makes a house into a home.  Pictures have a way of transporting you to another time and place through memories that are forever recorded and can be framed for all to see.  If you are hanging pictures in your home, make sure that you keep in mind a few simple tips to keep your images picture perfect.  

Keep It Together

Group similar photos together for a customized collage look.  When you put photos with the same theme or pattern together, you give the appearance of a framed print collection.

The Significance Of Support

When hanging photos, the hooks that you use should be able to hold a minimum of four times the weight of the frame.  This will help ensure that the hook is strong enough to hold up over time, plus you won’t have to worry about the accidental breakage of your glass frames.

Be Level

Use a level to make sure that your photos are straight and look pleasing to the eye.  In addition to a level, there are a number of tools that various manufacturers have designed to help ensure that your photos are perfectly straight.

Nail Knowhow

If you don’t want to put holes in your walls, which is an unavoidable result of nails, consider a popular alternative to hanging your photos traditionally.  With the creation of peel ‘n stick hooks that are designed to simply stick onto your walls, you will not have to place a nail everywhere you want to display a photo.  Plus, if you ever decide to sell your home, you won’t have to worry about patching holes and potential buyers won’t be turned off by unsightly nails in the wall.

Measuring Your Space

If you are hanging multiple photos in one area, such as a collage, make sure to space each photo evenly.  For instance, if you include a two-inch space between two photos, make sure that all others in the same group are spaced exactly the same.  This will create a flowing design that looks as though a lot of thought has gone into the decorating process.

Get Creative

If you have a lot of small photos that you want to display, but are unable to find a frame or the wall space to fit them all in, consider purchasing a very large frame and using it to create a collage of photos.  You can do this by attaching the individual photos to the frame with a dab of glue or transparent tape.  The best thing about this approach is that anything goes.  Your photos will not have to be perfectly placed inside the frame and you will always have an attractive wall-hanging that grabs the attention of your guests.
