When To Use a Déco Screw Versus a Déco Nail?

DN versus DS main image

The answer is simple: screws are much stronger than nails. If the item you want to hang is light-weight, use a nail. If it’s heavy, use a screw. The rule of thumb is this: when in doubt, use a screw. The last thing that you want is to have your artwork tumbling off the wall. Our Déco nails can each support up to 20 lbs and our Déco screws can handle up to 30 lbs.
