CREATING A GALLERY WALL

CREATING A GALLERY WALL

A gallery wall is a curated display of photographs, posters or prints, creatively arranged on a wall using photo frames, artworks or even mirrors.

Gallery walls have become quite popular over the last few years, providing an easy way to update your interiors, transform bland walls, create a focal point in your home, and bring some character and personality to your living space. Instead of using paint or wallpaper for a feature wall, you can do so with a gallery wall, and it can be placed anywhere in your home, although popular areas are often in the hallway, up the staircase or in the living room.

Creating a gallery wall in your home does not need to be a complex process, and if you are thinking that it might take hours or even days, you are wrong. Creating a gallery wall is all about beautifully displaying your style and personality.
 

ODD OR EVEN?

This is a dilemma most of us face on a daily basis. When it comes to choosing which numbers work best, it is important to consider the art you are wanting to hang on your wall. If the art is all the same size, more often than not, even numbers work best. However, if your collection varies in size and shape, it is recommended to consider using an odd number as this works best.
 

MEASURE THE SPACE

One of the more important things to consider – and the one most of us neglect, it to measure the space that you have. Try to lay your collection on the floor, take a step back and see what it looks like. Does anything seem very out of place? Is there room for more? Consider taking photographs of a few different layout options to determine which you prefer.
 

HANGING

Once you have decided on the layout of your gallery wall, the tricky part begins. Take your time and mark out where you will need to place a nail or picture hook to ensure that your final look is what you are after. Remember to keep in mind where the hook will be on your artwork and how this impacts how it will hang.

THE FINAL LOOK

Stand back and enjoy the final product of your hard work. Keep in mind that you can easily swop out any part of your gallery wall for a more updated look and feel.
