5 Ways To Hang Just About Anything on the Wall

There’s a saying that your home should tell the story of who you are as a person and should be a display of what you love.

A home without any décor is empty. Every room’s wall is etched with the stories of our time spent with the people we love and cherish, and every room should have its own unique characteristics and persona.

From mirrors to frames and even miniature decoration pieces, the way we ‘dress’ our home speaks volumes about the type of people we are.

That doesn’t mean you have to go all out and spend money purchasing things you don’t need. It simply means decorating the walls and space of your home to reflect your own personality and tastes.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at different screws and fasteners essential to decorate your home:

Drywall Anchors for Medium-Sized Things

Drywall anchors are available in different varieties and support up to 100lbs. This, however, depends on the brand, the fastener’s size, and the thickness of the drywall. They’re great for hanging mirrors, clothing racks, baskets and large frames.

One of the perks of drywall anchors is that you don’t need to drill a hole in the wall; you can just insert the anchors in. A screw within the anchor expands and locks into the drywall.

Toggle Anchors for Heavy Things

You can install heavy duty toggle bolts in drywalls or concrete blocks—it’s up to you. But you’ll have to drill a hole into the wall and remove the excess straps before you place the fastener into the wall for a firm hold.

Concrete Anchors for Masonry

Concrete anchors are perfect for blocked walls and “poured” concrete. They’re typically used for hanging TVs, large picture frames, and for different types of shelves.

You need to drill in the anchors into the concrete blocks or wall.

Topstar Screws for Doors

Topstar screws are great for doors. They’re perfect if you don’t want to go through the hassle of shimming. You can even adjust the screws to your requirements. Before you get started, you will have to pre-drill the door or window frame (if you’re using them for windows) with a 5/16" bit drill.

Wood Screws for Curtain Rods

While wood screws are great for various things, they’re perfect for curtain rods. You can use them to install spring-loaded rods. They help them stay in one place.

Since windows come equipped with a header over the top part, and have studs on the side of their frame, there’s ample space for the screws to fit in. It only takes a couple of minutes and you won’t have to worry about the screws becoming loose or the curtains falling down.
