However, one common concern we often hear from our clients is how to hang wall decorations without damaging freshly- painted walls. Well, fret not! We’re here to share some expert tips on how to hang and remove decorations without creating wall damage.

1. Eliminate Wall Damage by Choosing the Right ToolsYoung woman hanging picture on wall in living room

When it comes to hanging wall decorations, having the right tools is key. We have been in the painting business for years, and we have seen firsthand how using the proper equipment can save you both time and the hassle of repairs later.

2. Command Strips Minimize Wall Damage

They come in various sizes and strengths, and they don’t leave any residue behind when removed. Plus, they’re ideal for lightweight items like frames and smaller decor pieces. (And, no, we do not receive anything for promoting them. We’re just fans.) Gently press the strip onto the back of your decoration and press it onto the wall for the recommended duration. When you’re ready to remove it, simply pull the tab down slowly, and it’ll come off cleanly.

3. Picture Hangers & Wall Damageman hanging blank picture frame on wall

For slightly heavier items, consider using picture hangers. They are designed to distribute weight evenly and minimize damage to your walls. These usually require a small nail or hook to be driven into the wall. Be sure to use a level to ensure your decoration hangs straight.

4. Wall Damage Minimization: Anchors and Hooks

Just ensure you choose the right size for your load-bearing needs. For items that require anchors, drill a hole into the wall and insert the anchor. Then, attach the hook or screw, and you’re ready to hang your decoration.

5. Preparation Is Key to Minimize Wall DamageHome renovation crew preparing white wall for painting in the interior
