Choose Your Frames

The foundation of a captivating gallery wall starts with selecting the right picture frames. At, we offer a wide variety of frames in different styles, colors, and sizes to suit your preferences. When choosing your frames, consider a mix of larger and smaller sizes, as well as various frame styles to add visual interest to your wall. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Gather Your Artwork and Photos

Now comes the fun part! Gather your artwork and photos that you want to showcase. These can be family photographs, artwork, prints, or a combination of all three. It's essential to have a theme or a color scheme in mind to ensure a cohesive look.

Create a Layout Plan

Before you start hanging anything, plan your layout on paper or digitally. This will save you time and ensure you're happy with the final result. You can create a symmetrical grid, a salon-style wall with varying heights, or a mix of both. Be sure to consider the space available and measure it accurately. You can use the backside of wrapping paper to layout your frames on the floor. Once you’re happy with the layout, trace them with a pencil or pen. When you’re ready, stick the wrapping paper to the wall with tape and start hanging. It makes things so much easier!

Find Your Focal Point

Select a focal point for your gallery wall. It can be a standout piece of art, a family portrait, or even an empty frame that represents a placeholder for a future addition. This focal point will help anchor the arrangement.

Arrange and Rearrange

Begin by arranging your frames and artwork on the floor or a large table to experiment with different layouts. Play around with the placement until you achieve a composition that pleases your eye. Don't be afraid to switch things up until it feels just right.

Hang with Precision

Once you're satisfied with your arrangement, it's time to start hanging. Use a level, measuring tape, and the right hanging hardware to ensure your frames are straight and secure. Invest in a hanging tool to hang frames exactly where you want them. Starting with the focal point, work your way out to maintain balance and symmetry.

Add Variety

Don't limit yourself to just frames. Include other decorative elements, such as mirrors, shelves, or even wall-mounted plants, to add depth and interest to your gallery wall. These accents can break up the uniformity and make your display unique.

Lighting Matters

Consider your gallery wall's lighting. Use ambient lighting to create a warm, inviting atmosphere, and consider picture lights or spotlights to highlight specific pieces or areas.

Keep it Personal

Your gallery wall should reflect your personality and experiences. Don't be afraid to mix and match styles, include personal mementos, and let it tell your unique story.

Regularly Update

Keep your display fresh by swapping out artwork or photos and adding new memories as they're created. Update your gallery for New Year’s, summer, Christmas, birthdays, and more. The possibilities are endless. This ongoing transformation keeps your wall interesting and meaningful.

A stunning gallery wall can be a captivating centerpiece in your home, showcasing your artistic tastes and cherished memories. With our high-quality frames and the tips provided in this guide, you can create a gallery wall that not only looks fantastic but also holds sentimental value. It's time to turn your empty wall space into a dynamic canvas that reflects your individuality and style.
