Gallery walls are one of our favorite way to display art in the home! They are perfect for someone who can’t decide on one image or style of art and can add a ton of personality to your space.
Putting together a gallery wall doesn’t have to be intimidating! Just follow our easy steps below!
Step 1: Clear space on the floor to lay out your gallery wall. This ensures that your gallery wall is the correct width for the area you intend to hang it in.
Step 2: Start with your biggest/visually heaviest piece. You will want to put this piece at the bottom, usually on the opposite side of the room that has something tall in it, like a lamp or tree.
Step 3: Select a mix of art subjects – portrait, abstract, floral, photograph and landscapes, etc.
Step 4: Make sure the tones move across your arrangement so their is visual balance.
Step 5: The center of your gallery wall arrangement should be at eye level.
Step 6: Frames should be hung 2-3″ apart. Vary the heights slightly for interest and movement.
