Hang Your Wall Decoration Correctly
Beautify your home in just a few steps
ifolors's wall decorations are quick and easy to create - and just as easily hung on your own wall at home. Here we show you how to simply and quickly hang the gallery print, aluminium dibond, photo canvas, acrylic glass, wall display and the new HD Metal Print - with everything you need delivered in the package with your product.
Attaching screws or nails: Hanging pictures
Whether you should use nails, screws or hooks depends on the structure and size of the wall decoration. Screws hold particularly large and heavy objects more securely than nails, which are generally more suited for smaller lighter pictures. Screws, for example, are better suited for hanging aluminium Dibonds and HD metal prints in larger formats. Smaller formats and lightweight materials such as photo canvas or wall displays, on the other hand, can be hung on your wall with nails.
You can catch drill dust with a folded and taped-together piece of paper affixed to the wall beneath or by holding a vacuum cleaner hose (with the vacuum cleaner activated) under the drilled hole.
For the acrylic glass, we provide you with a special hangers, which give a stylish floating effect on your wall. This is also quickly mounted on your acrylic glass and finally on the wall in just a few steps. The necessary dowels, screws, and a small allen key are also included in the delivery. This detailed step-by-step guide will give you even more information on how to hang your acrylic wall decoration.
It’s even more fun to combine multiple photos - the possibilities here are endless. Use different formats or combine wall decorations made of different materials and create a great gallery on your wall! How about the "salon-style hang", for example, where your wall is covered to the ceiling with your best works?

Hanging the HD Metal Print
Thanks to the aluminium rails with corner connectors attached to the back, the HD Metal Print seems to float.

For the larger sizes, it is better to use screws for hanging.
Hanging large wall decorations: XXL Wall Decoration and Photo Collage with Gallery Frame
Discover the XXL wall decorations for special motifs: choose the desired variant and one of the three available XXL sizes and create an extraordinary atmosphere in the room with your extra large wall decoration.
Your photo as a photo canvas or Aluminium Dibond is available in three extra-large XXL formats: 120x90 cm, 150x100 cm and 150x50 cm, either in landscape or portrait format. As with the smaller formats, the wall brackets are either pre-assembled (Aluminium Dibond) or included for flexible mounting. Especially with such very large sizes, you should measure the space where you want to mount them beforehand. Make sure that there is still some space around the wall decoration to the window or door frame so that your picture is shown off to its best advantage and does not look too cramped on the wall.
In our article on XXL wall decorations, we explain how you can impressively present special photos as large-format wall decorations at home.
Another large-format and stylish wall decoration is the Gallery Frame in 50x70 cm or 40x110 cm. Depending on the size, the photo collage presents 24 or 52 of your favourite pictures as squares in a passe-partout. The chic wooden frame in black or white gives this wall decoration the finishing touch. As with a conventional picture frame, the suspension is pre-assembled on the back. Due to its size, you should pay attention to the composition of your wall when hanging it. Depending on the wall material, you may need conventional or special nails or screws so that your framed collage hangs securely on the wall.
Whichever wall decoration you choose, it should always be hung securely and stably. Have fun decorating!
