HOW TO HANG WALL ART​

Are you looking to spruce up your living space with some nerdy wall art? Perhaps you just bought an amazing Batman canvas print, or a Star Wars poster, and you’re not quite sure how to hang it up. Well, fear not, because we’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we’ll give you some tips and tricks on how to hang wall art like a pro.

Step 1: Plan it out

Before you start hammering nails into your wall, it’s important to plan out where you want to hang your art. Take a moment to envision how you want your art to look in the room. Consider factors such as the size of the art, the height at which you want it to hang, and the overall aesthetic of the room.

Once you have a general idea of where you want your art to go, you can start measuring. Measure the height and width of your wall, and use those measurements to determine where your art will be placed. If you have multiple pieces of art, consider creating a gallery wall with different sizes and shapes to add interest to the space.

Step 2: Gather your tools

Now that you have a plan in place, it’s time to gather your tools. Here’s a list of what you’ll need:

  • Hammer
  • Nails or screws
  • Picture hanging hooks or adhesive strips
  • Level
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil

Step 3: Hanging the art

When hanging your art, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. First, make sure your art is level. There’s nothing worse than a crooked painting or poster. Use a level to ensure that your art is straight.

Next, consider how you’ll be hanging your art. If your art has a wire on the back, you’ll need to use picture hanging hooks. These hooks have a small nail that you hammer into the wall, and they have a hook on the front that the wire on your art will rest on. If your art doesn’t have a wire, you can use adhesive strips instead of hooks.

When using nails or screws, it’s important to choose the right size for your art. If your art is heavy, you’ll need to use a larger nail or screw to support it. Additionally, if you’re hanging your art on drywall, you’ll want to use a wall anchor to ensure that the nail or screw doesn’t pull out of the wall.

Step 4: Final touches

Once you’ve hung your art, step back and take a look. Does it look straight and level? Is it at the right height? If not, make adjustments as necessary.

If you have multiple pieces of art, consider spacing them out evenly. You can use a piece of paper to create a template of each piece of art and tape it to the wall to help you visualize the placement before you hang it.

And there you have it! With these simple tips and tricks, you can hang your wall art like a pro. Remember to plan it out, gather your tools, hang your art, and make any necessary adjustments. With a little bit of patience and creativity, you can transform your living space into an art lovers paradise.
