Hanging Art in a Staircase

Art hung along a staircase can make for a stunning look, but if you have a busy household it’s important to make sure your art is well secured to keep it from crashing on the stairs when the kids race up and down the steps. Here are a couple of tips to make this high traffic area safe:

  • Hang your frames as flush as possible against the wall to prevent them from getting in the way
  • If you’re using picture wire, keep it as tight as possible to prevent frames from tilting forward
  • Place Anchor Points on the bottom corners of your frames to keep them in place and perfectly level

What’s hanging in your staircase? Let me know, I’d love to share with our readers.
