How To Create A Gallery Wall
When you are putting together your home and you are looking at a way to maybe show off new artwork or photography, it can be hard to figure out how to do it just perfectly.
There are so many ways to go about it, and finding those perfect pieces of art and figuring out how to format for your gallery wall will be a little different for all of us.
Here are some tips to help you get started so that your art is going to look its best in your home.
Simple Frame Game

Forget about the artwork and focus on the frames for a moment.
When you are creating a gallery wall, you need to make sure that you have some sort of theme going, so that you can pull everything together – in the frames, that is.
So, consider the option of making all of your frames one color or size. Don't be afraid to go bold with your artwork choices.
Once you get the frame colors and sizes sorted out, the frame will keep it all together and help you create a unique wall that you and your guest will appreciate.

On the other hand, don't be afraid to really go in strange directions when it comes to sizing and shaping of your frames.
Having all shapes and sizes makes for a really intriguing wall space that will help tell a story of its own.
There are a lot of great options at antique stores and secondhand shops that will give you a variety of look and feels to bring your space together.
Before you know it, you are on a really fun and interesting journey with the way you decide to display your artwork.
It may take you in a direction you hadn't thought about before, but that's art at its finest. Embrace it!!!
Include a Corner

Whether you're low on wall space, or you just want to create something that everyone is going to remember, put together a collage using a corner.
Too often, people ignore corners as realistic options, but you can create a really special look by using a corner to show off your gallery wall.
The options are as endless! And you get the chance to fill the multiple walls or those odd corners that you have no idea what to do with.
Pick A Strange Space

Choosing how to hang a gallery wall comes with a lot of choices and options that can make you feel overwhelmed.
If you've tried moving your pieces around a thousand times and are still finding that they aren't looking how you want them to, consider that maybe you aren't quite looking in the right spot.
Maybe in a closet, in the laundry room, that weird nook by the front door...go crazy!
When it comes to gallery wall ideas, there is no such thing as a true strange space, everything has potential.
You will be able to create a really interesting look that'll bring your design together nicely.

Your wall gallery doesn’t have to consist of artwork. You can always use an assortment of frames.
Vary the shapes, sizes and colors to create a beautiful gallery wall with just frames. Diane from In My Own Style (pictured above) did an excellent job of showing how you can make an awesome gallery wall.
It’s your creation so if you wanted to go back and add artwork later, do it.
There are no restrictions when it comes to your creativity and design.
