Top Picture Hanging related questions

How do I hang pictures on a wall?

Start by gathering the pictures or frames that you want to display. Gather your tools: you’ll need a hammer, drill, pencil, measuring tape, and small nails or anchors. Then, measure 57 inches or 1.45 m from the ground - this is the measurement used in most art installation hanging. Centre your pictures based on this line, then start drilling holes for the anchors or hammering in nails. Once these are secure, you can put up your images.

How do I hang pictures without nails?

There are creative ways to do this. You can use adhesive hooks, heavy-duty tape, or magnetic paint. You can also use thumbtacks or putty for lighter (usually un-framed) pieces. Wire displays or a clothesline with cute clothespins are two quirky ways to show off photos or artworks. Hanging heavy pictures or framed ones will usually require the use of screws or hooks, though. These prevent the images from getting damaged or from causing an accident in your home.

How high should I hang pictures?

Professional art hangers recommend hanging pictures at 57 to 60 inches from the floor. Those on the petite side can stick to 57 inches, while taller viewers will appreciate a height of 60 inches. Ceiling height can affect this measurement, too: if your ceiling is higher than 8 feet, hang pictures higher than 60 inches from the ground.

Take note that your pictures should be centred along this line - don’t position the top or bottom of the frame here.

How do I hang pictures from a picture rail?

First, attach D-rings or straphangers to the back of each frame. Then, hook the large curve of the picture rail hook to the frame. Use one hook for light pieces, and two hooks for hanging medium or heavy pictures. Loop the picture rail wire over the smaller curve of the hook. Loop the wire around the hooks or each side of a single hook. Secure each wire before cutting off the excess, then adjust for straightness as needed.


How do I hang pictures from plaster walls?

There are two ways to do a picture hanging from plaster walls. For lighter pieces, you can use adhesive hooks. For medium-weight and heavy-weight pieces, you’ll need to use an anchor and a screw. First, drill a hole for the anchor. Then, hammer the anchor into the wall and fix the screw into it. Make sure the screw juts out about half an inch away from the wall. Clean the area around the hole, then put up the picture.

What do picture hanging services include?

Our picture hanging services cover the entire process of putting up photos, as well as the necessary tools for different sizes or weights. Though the specifics may vary depending on the Tasker you hire, picture hanging generally includes the following:
 
Tools for photo wall hanging

Most handymen bring their tools for the job. This includes drills, drill bits, stud finders, screws, wall anchors, hammers, and weight for your pictures (as requested). All you need to do is point out the space you want the images to hang on and the photos you wish to hang. To get the job done faster, you should give more details in your task post, such as the kind of wall surface you have and if your pictures are light, medium, or heavy. This helps your picture hanger select the best tools for the job.
 
Hanging light pictures

There are many ways to hang light pictures, or those weighing 13 kg or less. Your handyman may ask for your preference beforehand - unless you’ve indicated it in your task post. You can use screws, adhesive hooks, magnetic paint, heavy-duty tape, or a picture rail.
 
If you wish to hang your pictures using screws, nails, or sleeves, your handyman starts by positioning the frames and marking their places. Please make sure you’re satisfied with the placement before they start drilling! Then, they drill holes into the wall and attach plastic anchors or screws. Or, they may use a plastic sleeve and fit a screw into it. Once each attachment is in place, it’s time to put up your pictures and make sure they hang straight!
 
Hanging medium-weight and heavy pictures

Medium-weight pictures usually weigh up to 18 kg, while heavy ones can weigh around 22 kg. To hang these kinds of pieces, your handyman may use hollow wall anchors, special picture hangers and nails, or toggles. These tools can help spread the weight of the picture on a larger part of the wall.
 
Hanging on different surfaces

Some kinds of surfaces are challenging to work with, such as plaster or brick. Your handyman may use other hardware such as brick clips to anchor objects to the wall.
 
Skipping the usual picture hanging options? You can book a tradesman or assembler to put up a shelf for your photos instead. This task is excellent for property owners who aren’t allowed to drill holes in their walls.
 
Picture hanging is just one of the things you can get done with Airtasker. We can also connect you with electricians, plumbers, and construction experts near you to help you renovate every corner of your home.
 
Removing mounted pictures

If you’re moving out of a rented property or want to renovate your home, you may need to repair the wall that you hung pictures on. You can book a Tasker to paint over the damage or spackle it for you.
