How to Create a Gallery Wall at Home

June 24, 2015 6:39 pm

Adding a gallery wall to your home is one of the easiest ways to give it a professional designer look and to show off your unique personality. Whether you choose to fill it with photos of your loved ones, band posters, or prints from the local antique shop, a gallery wall is sure to brighten up any space. Here are a few easy ways to make a gallery wall in any room in your home.

  1. Choose the right prints. Although you can choose pretty much any prints or photos for your gallery wall, it will look better if things are well curated. Choose prints that have similar or complementary color tones, and opt for things in a wide variety of sizes to add some visual interest. Frame them in matching or mismatched frames, depending on your taste.
  2. Form a center. The largest frames should go in the center of the gallery wall to create an anchor. Have a friend help you to arrange things on the wall before you hang them, and leave the same amount of space (approximately two inches) in between every frame.
  3. Don’t lose focus. As you’re arranging the frames to hang them, occasionally step back to the opposite side of the room to examine your work. Things may look great up close, but it’s what they look like from afar that really matters.
  4. Straighten up. Once you have your whole wall situated, use a level to make sure that each frame is straight.
