Hanging Art System for the Home

Having art in your home is important for a lot of reasons, and STAS understands that. Art helps create a mood in your home. A recent study out of the Laboratory of Neurobiology at the University College London, found that viewing art stimulates the brain and triggers the same feelings as falling in love. Art can help you personalize your home, express personal tastes, and relive the memories of when a piece was made or purchased. Throughout your home there may be a large variety of items to hang on the wall – from small family photographs or children’s finger paintings to large oil paintings in heavy, old-fashioned frames which might have been passed down through the family. Once you've found the perfect piece of art, whatever it may be, you need to think about where and how to best display it...and that’s where we come in.

Picture Hanging for the Home

What are your options?

Interior design styles vary from home to home, as its you and your families personal taste. The choice of style for a hanging system for the home also comes down to personal taste. Sure, you can hammer nails into your wall, or try those flimsy double-sided tape things, but these often create more problems than they solve. Nails create holes that require patching later, and are a hassle when adjustments are needed. Those sticky removable hooks sound great until they peel the paint off...time to repaint! No picture hanging system will give you the flexibility, security, and support as a STAS Hanging System.

Stas New Building, Existing Structure & Conversions

New Construction or Remodels

For new constructions or remodels, ask your designer or architect to include one or more STAS Picture Hanging systems at the design stage. Doing this will give you unrivaled flexibility in the system you choose. For example, the STAS plaster rail is built INTO the wall, under the surface of the plaster. Depending on your unique requirements STAS has a system for you, and every STAS system has one thing in common - once the system is in place, banging nails in walls becomes a thing of the past!

Don't Forget Lighting!

Another advantage over nails or other methods of hanging pictures, and extremely important when talking about fine art is having the appropriate lighting. STAS offers several art lighting systems that integrate directly with rails allowing you to quickly hang and effectively light your art in one simple step.

Long Term Benefits

Long-term benefits of STAS systems include greatly reduced costs over the years (saving on redecorating, painting, plastering and associated liquids, cleaning fluids, paints, plaster etc.), plus zero maintenance cost, zero impact on wall structure once the system has been installed (i.e. no more hanging pictures with nails!) and no need to call the Plumber to check out if there's a pipe hidden in the wall, or after you've banged a nail into the wall and found that that's where the pipe is!
