When hanging up a mirror in your home, many individuals just hammer in a nail and hang the mirror on it, where it will sit, either secured by a support beam, or will eventually slide out and might cause damage, or even break the mirror when it falls. To provide you piece of mind, understanding that your possessions will be secure for years to come, so here are just a couple of simple steps that may help when hanging a mirror, or even a photo in your home, that may make it easier for you in the future.

To begin with, you should measure out the area you will need to properly hang your mirror, giving it enough space on the sides and the bottom, and to keep it from hitting other items beside it. Put a mark on the wall in the space where you will place the nail or nails, so that you'll not need to make additional holes to hang the mirror straight, and then screw or hammer them in securely, in studs if you are able, before continuing.

You'll assuredly want to utilize screws for bigger mirrors, as they will be threaded into the wall, making it tougher for them to be removed without being unscrewed, while nails will work just as well for smaller, lighter mirrors. Doing what you can to hang them without having to fuss with the string on the back side for too long, you could also use hooks or brackets to help you secure your bathroom wall mirrors with minimal hassle. Without being required to re-measure their location, you may even wish to think about utilizing a level to ensure that your mirror will rest even, and to also separate your nails or screws, and continue to keep them in a straight line.

Also if you are putting up a black, or darkly painted mirror, be cautious when hanging it, because if you make contact with the wall, you might rub some paint off, and not only need to deal with a scrape on your wall, but you would also have to fix, or repaint the mirror itself. On the same note, if you are putting up large white mirrors in your house, be careful to not hit them against anything else that might get its paint on the mirror, or to scratch the paint off, leaving a baren wooden spot on your brand new mirror.

You shouldn't have to worry about it in the future, once you have it hung and secure, and that's all you have to do to properly hang a mirror in your home.
