How to Hang Photos Without Damaging Your Walls

August 29, 2014 5:07 pm

If you live in a rental, hanging picture frames on the walls is a touchy subject. You don’t want your home to look bare and impersonal, but on the other hand you’re worried about damaging the walls with a hammer and nails. Lucky for you, there are a number of creative photo hanging alternatives made especially for renters.

  1. Picture hanging strips. These store-bought strips of foam are equipped with heavy duty adhesive on either side, and they come in a variety of sizes to accommodate any type of frame. Once it comes time to move out (or if you just want to do a little rearranging), they peel right off without leaving a mark.
  2. Monkey hooks. If you can afford to make a few holes but you’re still worried about causing too much damage, monkey hooks are a great option. These long, curved metal wires go into your wall and out again about an inch or two lower, and they’re equipped with a smaller hook at the end that attaches to the back of your frame. These are especially good for frames with a wire hanger on the back.
  3. Poster putty. Although this seems like a childish option, there are a number of different ways to use poster putty that don’t involve hanging boy band posters. You can use this simple, damage-free adhesive to arrange Polaroids in a fun shape, and there are even heavy-duty options that can be used to hang lightweight picture frames.
