How To Hang Pictures and Art on Drywall?

September 14, 2019


Decorating can be little tricky. You probably have an image of how you want everything to look and have started compiling all your various pieces of wall art or pictures. Here are some tips below to give you best options and choices. 


Pick the lightest weight possible


Drywall is at the most risk from hanging photographs when the frame is heavy. Make sure you select the lightest possible frame prior to hanging anything on drywall to minimize the likelihood of drywall damage.


Get the proper support in place


Wall fasteners offer support for hanging pictures in the home. They are available in both lightweight and heavyweight options and can prevent the need for repairing drywall later on. If you think your picture might be a little too heavy for the wall, it’s best to use a stud finder to locate a supporting beam. If you’re not sure about whether or not your frame can be supported by drywall, it may be beneficial to call in an experienced professional to help the decorating process move along while protecting the walls.


Mistakes are fixable


If you damage some drywall while trying to hang a picture, there’s no need to panic. Pro Handyman can fix it just as good as any drywall contractor. We are experienced, licensed workers who know how to fix holes large and small in drywall.
