Types of picture rail

picture rail wood

Traditional picture rail moulding

The picture rail is an old invention. It served both an aesthetic and practical function. This functional moulding was in most cases made of wood, installed just below the ceiling. It is most commonly seen in older homes with a plaster wall. Because hammering nails into the plasterwork will damage the wall, and is likely to cause the plaster to crumble, a picture rail is an ideal solution. Instead of using nails, pictures can be suspended from the picture rail by using a wire and a picture rail hook. Rearranging the pictures is as simple as moving the hooks around.
Our shop offers traditional picture rail hooks and cords.
