Does The Wall Type Matter?

Standard plasterboard walls come in every home, from Victorian terraces to new build properties, and so you'll be relieved to know that standard nails or picture hooks work well with this type of wall.

What Options Do Renters Have?

If you're renting your home, you might want to avoid drilling the walls. Command strips are every renter's favourite choice. Make sure you choose the correct type of command strip for the right weight of your picture. Standard command strips are designed for weights of up to 3kg, but there are additional options for heavier pieces up to around 10 kg. Always read the label.
