Why You Shouldn’t Attempt to Install Frames Yourself

Whether you’re an art lover or a business owner, the decision of whether or not to install frames yourself can be tough. Should you DIY your picture-hanging project or hire a professional to get the job done?

Large Art Isn’t Easy to Hang

If you have a large mirror, piece of art, or photograph that you want to hang, there’s a good chance that it isn’t only big—it’s also heavy. When you install frames yourself, it’s very challenging to securely mount a heavy piece of art to the wall. In fact, you might even do damage to the piece. Professionals know how to quickly and easily install complex and fragile pieces without damaging them.

Installing Pieces Safely Takes Practice

When you install frames yourself, there’s a high probability that you aren’t familiar with the safest ways to do so. Poorly-installed frames and art pieces can fall and hurt you or someone visiting your property. Additionally, an accident can also destroy your art piece entirely. Professional installation is even more critical in businesses and high-traffic areas.

Installation Design Isn’t Simple

Do you have multiple pieces to hang or have an interest in creating a gallery wall? Design isn’t easy, and experienced pros know how to go beyond simply hanging pictures to create polished, engaging displays. If you want to leave the burden of design in someone else’s hands, work with The Chessler Company to have each step of the process taken care of from start to finish.
