With a thin, relatively breakable material like sheetrock, you’re going to want anchors if you intend to hang anything much heavier than a post-it. While you might be able to get away with a screw here and there, you’ll find that the force exerted on it has a tendency to break over time which will leave you with both an unsightly hole and your favorite decoration on the ground.
Using drywall anchors is a simple process, but it bears taking a closer look at in order to avoid many of the common pitfalls which are associated with them.
Drywall anchors will save you a lot of time, frustration, and effort as long as you’re careful about installing them. You don’t need to be a pro to do it, all you need is a little bit of time and the ability to use some simple tools. If you’ve been precise through the whole process, you now have a permanent solution that will allow you to hang whatever you may wish, within reason, and you can take pride in a job well done.
