Ways of Hanging Multiple Pictures Evenly

Hanging a picture straight on the wall is always challenging. However, with this simple and easy trick, you’ll never fall short of hanging your pictures perfectly. You know, there’s something called eye-soothing, eye-pleasing, this is exactly what you’re going to get.

Things You’ll Need

  1. Hold your pictures on the wall and eye-ball them. I don’t like hanging pictures too above to eye-level nor too low to shoulder-level. If you have kids, then it is highly recommended that you put them above their reach.
  2. Use a laser level to mark a tiny line with a pencil. No need to draw lines throughout the entire wall. Just mark a tiny sport or a small line at the furthest ends of the laser level of the wall.
  3. Get you painter’s tape and make a mild even line between the two spots you just drew.
  4. Hammer your nails in on the spots you just marked on the wall. And,
  5. Remove your painter’s tape and hang your pictures!

This particular process is equally effective for hanging a picture as well. If you would like to hang 4/5 or 6 pictures in a row or one after another, then just repeat the same steps for the next row and column. I personally don’t like to measure each and every distance between two frames rather just eye-ball it. Though, it is you who will eventually make the thing happen. Do as you feel comfortable about it.

Besides, if you do not like to use nails and hammer on you newly painted walls, no worries, you can use adhesive picture hooks that leave no marks.

Final Words

When you’re hanging a picture or multiple on your wall, remember you’re decorating your home. This is a big part of your entire home decoration. Therefore, it needs to be as perfect as possible. I hope that these simplest steps will be sufficient for you to have perfectly hanged pictures on the wall.

Last but not least, if you don’t like using a drill to hole into the wall, here’s our article on that.
