There are a few things you need to consider when hanging a painting on your wall.
Whichever method you choose, make sure the painting is secure and won’t fall and harm itself or anyone nearby.
1. The height of the painting. You’ll want to make sure the painting is hanging at a comfortable viewing height.
2. The weight of the painting. Make sure the wall can support the weight of the painting.
3. The type of wall. If you have a plaster wall, you’ll need to use special hangers. If you have a drywall, you can use any type of hanger.
4. The location of the painting. You’ll want to make sure the painting is hung in a location where it won’t be damaged by sunlight or moisture.
There are a few different ways that you can hang a painting on your wall. You can use nails, screw hooks, or adhesive strips.
If you’re using nails, make sure they’re the right size and type for the weight of your painting. Hammer the nails into the wall at the top corners of the painting. Use picture wire to secure the painting to the nails.
If you’re using screw hooks, simply screw them into the wall at the top corners of the painting. Use picture wire to secure the painting to the hooks.
Place the strips at the top corners of the painting and press them firmly to the wall.
If you use adhesive strips or Velcro, make sure the surface of the wall is clean and free of dust or dirt. Otherwise, the tape strips may not stick properly. Place the strips at the top corners of the painting and press them firmly to the wall.
Once you have chosen your method, follow the next instructions.
- Choose the location for your painting. It should be at eye level and in a place where it gets a lot of light.
- Get to the painting and marked the place on the wall.
- If using nails or screws, pre-drill holes where marked.
- Hang the painting on the wall using the chosen method.
- Step back and check that the painting hangs water level.
- Your artwork is now ready to be supported on the wall.
