ACCESSORIES FOR HANGING PICTURES ON PLASTER OR CONCRETE WALLS
Regardless of whether you want to put up a picture on a plaster wall or a concrete wall, we have accessories that allow you to minimise any damage to your wall. Putting something up on a concrete wall is difficult for some because it can involve a little more work, but it doesn't have to be that hard. If you have lighter paintings, you can use a so-called concrete hook that's available in lots of different sizes, and for that you only need a hammer and can save yourself from having to drill. If the picture's larger and weighs a little more, you'll need a screw and wall plugs. This means a little more work, but at least you can be sure the picture will stay in place. If you want clearer instructions for how to put up a picture on a concrete wall, you can read our article here.
On a plaster wall, the same lighter and heavier paintings principle applies. If you have a lighter picture, a so-called X-hook that can handle loads of up to five kilos might be enough, but if it's a heavier one, a screw and wall plug are also necessary here.

HANGING A PICTURE WITHOUT MAKING A HOLE IN THE WALL?
How can I put up a picture on the wall without making any holes? This is a question many people will have asked themselves. Sometimes you don't want to drill a hole or make any ugly marks in the wall for some reason, but that doesn't mean you should miss out on having beautiful pictures on the walls! But is it really possible to hang a painting without leaving a mark on the wall? The answer is yes! There are self-adhesive nails that attach to the wall easily without you having to drill. Self-adhesive nails work on all types of walls and surfaces, including wallpaper and plaster. The self-adhesive nails make it easy to get beautiful pictures up on sensitive surfaces. A perfect framing accessory!
DIFFERENT TYPES OF GLASS FOR YOUR PICTURE FRAME
Most picture frames come with some form of glass, and it's an important accessory because it serves so many purposes. It keeps the picture in place and nice and smooth. It also protects against elements such as moisture and dirt. Sometimes, if you hang your picture near a window, it's a good idea to buy non-reflective glass with UV protection. Going for non-reflective glass means you avoid annoying reflections and refractions, and your picture retains its natural colours and shine. The glass is also UV-protective and removes harmful UV rays to make your pictures last longer. It's also more scratch-resistant. Simply put, it's the perfect accessory for your picture frame!
ACCESSORIES YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU NEEDED
Under frame accessories, you'll also find various frame inserts. They're an important accessory that you might not have known you needed. A frame insert protects your image from yellowing and helps it stay nice over time. A frame insert is a PH-neutral sheet of paper that's conveniently placed between the picture and the back of the frame to prevent the acid from the backing from penetrating and damaging your image.
There are also plenty of other mounting accessories so you can easily find what you need. Maybe you want a nice frame easel for your picture frame, or a photo rope to hang your photos in a creative, decorative way? With us, you'll find all the different frame accessories you need!
