How To Design a Gallery Wall

Mar 17th 2020 at 12:33 AM


You probably already know that creating a gallery wall is a simple and elegant way to bring not only style, but also personality to any room. Skip the hassle of repainting or the labor of wallpapering, and instead think about hanging your favorite art or photos. A gallery wall is easy to set up and can be arranged in so many different ways. But if you’re unsure on how to design a gallery wall, we’ve got some tips to help.

Arranging your collection can be really intimidating when you’re looking at a blank wall and you aren’t sure where to start. Read on as we help you make a statement so that you feel a little more confident hanging your canvas photo prints, acrylic prints, or even HD metal images.

Design A Gallery Wall You’ll Love

Gallery walls can be a fun way to make your personal statement in your home, or even in your office space or place of business. Usually the most inspiring walls are those that mix a variety of artwork and photography, and include personal mementos or keepsakes. Whatever you love, display it on your gallery wall!

Take Your Time, Plan It Out

The first thing we recommend when you’re planning how to design a gallery wall in your home is to take your time. Don’t go online right away and just buy a ton of random things that you might not like later. Instead, create a captivating gallery wall that looks like a collection of your personal style. You want it to feel interesting and put together.

A lot of people think that a gallery wall is out of their reach because they feel like they don’t have enough space. But you don’t have to live in a big loft to display lots of different types of art. We think that a gallery wall is absolutely ideal for a small apartment or smaller homes without a lot of wall space. It can give a room more depth and make your place feel decorated without cluttering up floor space. Even if you don’t have one big wall, gallery walls can be hung around windows, doors, above headboards in bedrooms, around fireplaces, and even around cabinets in the kitchen.

Measure out the space first so that you know exactly what you have to work with so you can get the artwork that fits perfectly.

Floor To Ceiling

One of our favorite gallery wall displays are floor-to-ceiling gallery walls. They create a little bit of drama, add a statement piece to your home, and can be a beautiful collection of your personality and style.

We would advise to plan a space like this a little more carefully. If you’re using frames, keep them neutral or try to compliment the rest of your furniture and decorations. You don’t want to overwhelm the room, but you don’t want to make a statement. Vary the sizes of your artwork or photographs, and maybe even mix in mirrors or other various mixed media to create a look that is custom to you.

Classic Grid

Maybe you’re a little more linear and organized. Maybe you’d rather have a gallery wall that is the perfect classic grid, with the same amount of space in between each piece that you hang. If you have a nice blank space above your couch, headboard, or even dining room table. A sleek and uniform look might be exactly what you’re looking for to fill that blank space.

Consider using a theme for your grid. Maybe 9 identically sized canvas photo prints of your family, or maybe a collection of wedding photos. Whatever type of art you want to display, a perfect grid of square pieces, rectangle canvas, or even round frames are a great way to get that extra level of sophistication, and it makes it easy to swap pieces in and out.

Columns and Rows

If you only have a thin blank space to work with, then consider doing a single row or column gallery wall style. A vertical gallery wall works wonders in tight spaces, and helps you break out of the mindset that you need a giant blank wall to design a gallery wall that you’ll love.

Only have a small space between a door and your windows? No problem! Order a variety of sizes and frame styles, but keep the images in theme and you have a beautiful display that is interesting to look at and makes your home feel welcoming.

Use A Ledge

Another gallery wall option is to install a long ledge to put art and photography on. You can stack a variety of styles and shapes on your wooden or metal ledge and overlap them for a unique and high class look. A ledge is perfect for those who love to swap out art on a regular basis or for those who just can’t make up their minds.

A ledge option is also great for those who are renting, because a shelf will use less holes in the wall than a typical gallery wall might.

Random and Eclectic

We’ve mentioned it above, but some of the very best gallery walls are the ones that seem a little random and eclectic. You’ve probably been collecting art and cherished photos over the years, and hanging them up in a variety of different sizes, dimensions, and styles give the gallery wall a collected feel. You’ll have it perfectly planned out of course, but everyone else will see it as effortless and lovely.

Designing a gallery wall is easy, and you don’t have to break the bank. You’ll be surprised at how good all of your artwork looks hanging together in a collection in your space.

Conclusion

The nice thing about all of the arrangements we discussed is that they can grow and change over time. Adding a new row to your classic grid is easy, and finding new pieces you love is a snap to add to your gallery wall. Your mixed media gallery wall will be unique to you, and you’ll love the custom feel it has in your house or office space. We love an eclectic wall because it reflects a personal story.
