Accessories and decor

If you’re going to hang accessories and decor, you’ll need to think carefully about things like where you going to put them. For example, what’s the right height to hang a mirror? Or where will that new painting look best? It’s also important to first think about the materials you’re going to use, what’s the right size to drill a hole in the wall, and what size wall plug to use? You’ll find useful information about these and many more subjects at the SKIL website.
