Here are effective tips on how to hang picture frames on the wall the right way:
1. Find the right space:
Where do you want the picture to go? Is it the empty wall close to your TV, your newly cleared out wall space, wall close to your dining? etc.
2. Consider the state of the wall:
You need to be sure the wall is strong enough to withstand the weight of the picture frame. If the wall isn’t strong enough, the frame may fall down and damage the wall.
3. Consider the weight of the picture:
You can also take measurements of the frame and divide it into two in order to know the middle of the picture. This will give you an idea of how to hang the picture
4. How much can you do with the wall?
Sometimes because you are renting a space, you may not be able to dig hole on the walls of the apartment. In such cases, you can go with strong adhesive hooks to help you hang your pictures without drilling a hole. It also makes it easy to remove when you need to.
However, before you go for this option, make sure the frame you are hanging is not heavy because if it is, then the adhesive hook may not be able to carry it.
5. Take measurements:
You need to measure the surface area of the wall as well as the height and width of the picture frame. This would help you position the frame right.
6. Choose the right materials:
The materials you use can either make or bar your design process. You need to choose the right kind of materials to work with based on your analysis of the above points. You can work with nails, adhesive hooks, anchors, etc.
7. Picture height:
According to Shutterfly, “The golden rule of hanging a picture is to have the centre of the photo be at 57 inches.” This is the standard eye-height of an average person.
8. Make sure it is straight: At the end of the day, make sure the way you hang the picture is straight, or else, it wouldn't be appealing.
