What is the best way to hang a photo frame?

Hanging a picture frame can sometimes seem like a huge job, but it really doesn't have to be. Hanging a frame is easy. 

Whether the frame you are hanging is large or small, the instructions are the same. Often it seems a lot harder than it is. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

How to hang a picture frame

It’s often useful to know in advance what kind of wall you want to hang your picture frame on. If it’s a stone wall then go for a screw and wall plug, but if you have a wooden wall it’s easier to use a solid nail. That will make it easy to attach a picture frame to a wall.

Once the screw is in the wall, it’s time to hang the picture frame. Make sure that the picture frame is level. Some people might be bothered by a picture frame that’s not completely straight. It doesn't matter how big or how small the picture frame is, every frame from Yourdecoration.com is easy to hang

We also have special poster frames, which provide the perfect fit for our posters. This might make choosing a frame a bit easier.

Use a poster strip

Maybe you want to hang a poster, but don't want to frame it? Then you can use our hanger sets. These hanger sets or poster strips are very easy to use and ensure that your poster is well protected. It’s a simple yet easy way to hang your posters and it looks good in any room.

A poster hanger set consists of two poster strips that are very easy to hang. The top strip has a suspension eye to which you can easily attach a thin piece of string to hang the poster strip from. The bottom strip holds the weight so that the poster always hangs taut and straight. 

Our poster strips are available in several colors and also in different sizes. So there’s always something for you

Choose the right place and sequence

Maybe you have multiple picture frames and want to create a gallery wall? First, consider carefully how you want the frames to be hung. For example, maybe you have three identical frames that you want to hang side-by-side. Then make sure that they’re all hanging at the same height and that there is equal space between them. This will give you a clean overall look and immediately transform the atmosphere in the house completely.
