You don’t need fancy art or immaculately-framed photos to pull off a killer gallery wall in your home. Whether it’s a large wall or a small space, a gallery wall packs serious style points!
Not sure where to start? No worries, we’re here to help with these quick tips!
Decide what pieces you want to hang.
Get creative! Are you a big concert goer? Frame up ticket stubs and hang them in a collection. Maybe you have a great assortment of family heirlooms (think grandpa’s handkerchief or a wood spoon used to cook meals for your family for generations)? Frame those babies up!
Decide how you want your wall to look.
Does the space lend itself to a symmetrical look or will a more mixed & matched approach work better? If going for the mixed up look, start with the largest piece first and then work out around it.
- When it comes to gallery walls – the less symmetrical you do it, the easier it is! No worrying about lining up edges and corners of frames.
- For a symmetrical look, using painters tape to plan the layout on the wall is a good trick!
