How to make a picture gallery wall
A gallery wall is a curated display of photographs, posters or prints, creatively arranged on a wall using photo frames.
Gallery walls or photo 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.
There are two main options for gallery walls:
You can create a gallery wall using your own photographs and art and purchase suitably sized picture frames to hang on the wall.
Or you can buy a curated set of framed wall art prints (these are often themed such as botanical or landscape prints), that you can simply hang on the wall.
In order to build your own picture gallery wall take these few steps:
Start making a collection of things you love, from original art, to handmade prints to photographs. As you start collecting, think about the scale of your possible collection and the arrangement you want.
Pick out your favourites and group them by themes e.g. family, memorable places, happy events, or another mix that means something to you. For art or prints, select colours that go with your room decor or suit the tone of the room you want to display them in.
Measure your wall space and lay your collection on the floor. Stand back and look at them all together (allow a bit of space between them for the frames). Does anything jump out as wrong? If yes, take it out. Or is there room for you to add more? Take a photo of your possible combinations.
When you are happy with the layout, get your frames. You need to decide whether you want them to blend in or contrast with the wall, or to stand out in their own right.
Next, you’ll need nails and a hammer. You’ll also need a pencil and rubber, a ruler and wall filler in case of mistakes. Draw lightly on the walls where the top corners of the frames will be. Measure and mark how much lower down the picture frame you want your nail holes. Start hammering and get them all up.
