Tips and Tricks for Creating a Gallery Wall

Posted by creatingyourspace under Design and Decorating

Pictures are worth a thousand words. Plus, they are always a great focal point to have as a piece of artwork in a room. That being said, a gallery wall is made up of dozens of pictures in all different shapes and sizes. Hanging a single image can only depict so much; however, a gallery wall has to power to entirely create the room’s theme. This is a great addition to any bedroom or living room to help enhance the space’s design. If you are considering a gallery wall, here is everything you will need:

Photo Theme 

A gallery wall is a great way to create a theme in a room. If you were to add one picture of a log cabin, your theme might feel like it represents the painting. Yet, a gallery wall, on the other hand, could encompass the art of the mountainside, birds, and a sunset, all separately from your cabin picture. Now your one-sided theme is opened up to a much larger landscape. Decide what you would like your gallery wall to express. Maybe it is simply positive vibes or pictures with loved ones. Select all the pictures you are going to use and have them printed or purchased before you begin with the frames. 


You have a lot of flexibility in your design. You can choose to have all your gallery wall just on canvases with no frames. You can also mix and match wall art to help add depth to your gallery wall. When it comes to hanging pictures you have had printed; however, you may want to consider matching frames. A great rule in art is creating harmony. Nothing will make your wall flow more homogenously than incorporating the same frame design. 


Before you just start putting nails in your wall, calculate out your layout. Find an area on the ground and lay out the pictures exactly how you want them to be on the wall. You may want to consider the same spacing generally when adding pictures while incorporating landscape and vertical pictures to give your gallery wall more flavor. The layout is the most important part, so make sure you like how it looks. Also, consider where you will be hanging the pictures. While the layout may look fantastic on a 6×6 space on the ground, it may not translate well onto a wall that is 11×22 in dimensions. 

Creating a gallery wall is a great way to enhance your theme. Your gallery wall can still be the focal point of the room, yet it has the privilege to incorporate so much more than one image.
