Picture rail is the safe, flexible and durable picture hanging solution for hanging art, pictures, mirrors, quilts, a complete gallery wall and other wall decoration. The idea of a picture rail is to avoid any damage to your wall when you want to hang your wall decoration by using picture rail wire and picture rail hooks. Old traditional homes might have a picture rail or picture rail molding as this was more common earlier days. However, the picture hanging rail has made a true comeback and can be bought from your favorite picture hanging specialist: STAS picture hanging systems. We love the traditional wooden picture rail but we also developed picture hanging rail systems in modern styles. Whether you choose for a traditional gallery hanging system or a modern picture hanging system, you'll be able to rearrange your pictures and art without tools and without wall damage!

Traditional picture rail molding
The picture rail is an old invention. In most cases, this functional molding was made of wood, installed just below the ceiling. It is most commonly seen in traditional homes with plaster walls. Hammering nails into the plasterwork will damage the wall. Instead of using nails, pictures can be suspended from the picture rail hanging system by using a wire and a picture rail hook. Rearranging the pictures is as simple as moving the hooks around.
