Recently an article appeared on Builderonline.com featuring WalabotDIY, a 3D- imaging sensor that “allows homeowners and professionals alike to see behind the walls with an X-ray vision app of sorts.” Many uses for this sensor were mentioned such as “mounting shelving, locating a pesky leak, or drilling into a wall without the fear of hitting a pipe or electrical wire,” and most sound very helpful for your DIY projects. There’s one use, however, which we feel strongly requires a counter argument … hanging a wall gallery.
There is a better solution and you have found it! Read on.
You don’t need a sensor. You don’t need the complex process of marking locations of studs, putting holes in your walls, and leaving tell-tale signs of your wall gallery design set up, additions, and removals of those art pieces and photos … Use a hanging system instead.
A wall gallery hanging system is typically comprised of a track mounted high on the wall. This is most commonly done at the intersection of the wall and ceiling.
From this track hangs cables or rods that follow down the surface of the wall.
Photos, art, posters and mirrors, and displays of all sorts are hung from the cables/rods via hooks and fittings.
We’ve previously shared tips and ideas for hanging pictures and gallery wall layouts on our blog.
Creating a wall gallery becomes very easy when a hanging system is implemented, and includes many benefits.
- You can make changes to the layout and design at any time.
- It’s a method that allows you to play with the actual framed objects during the “what if” stage.
- You avoid paper template cutouts altogether, so there is no location transfer error.
- No nails are required/used so there is no damage to walls. Gotta love that, right?
