In order to give your rooms a finished, integrated look, after you have installed a new dry wall and the walls are painted, you must know how to level your pictures and the various items hung on your walls. Knowing how to level the pictures on the walls of your home is as simple as obtaining a simple level from your local hardware store and learning how to use it properly.
Here are some tips on how to level your pictures in your home:
• The way in which a picture is hung will determine its potential for remaining level. Hanging the picture from a single nail and its picture wire is merely asking for that picture to tilt as it hangs. Hanging it from more than one nail or picture hanger greatly improves your chances of having level pictures.
• Hanging your pictures from pre-measured vertical picture wire affixed to a picture molding is an even better method of ensuring that your pictures remain level, although many newer houses do not have the old-fashioned picture molding which used to be so popular.
• Absent the convenience of picture molding means that you will possibly be using the wire at the back of the picture to hang it. It will be more stable and remain level for a longer period if it is hung from an actual device intended to support the hanging of pictures rather than using its own picture wire.
• The best way to ensure that pictures remain level for a long period of time is to routinely recheck them with your level to be sure that you are really seeing your pictures in a straight line!
