Gallery walls are not difficult to do if you use an adjustable picture hanger like Picture Perfect Hanger® So in this blog we wanted to give you tips on how to turn a boring wall of pictures into an exciting display of harmonious images.

Think of a
gallery wall as a companion display that pulls the feel of a room together. The best part is, feel free to use unique frames, images even a piece of art or graphic shape to add an accent and some color.

Here are 6 insightful tips that will inspire you to get that collage of pictures up and organized.


1. Pick a wall that gets plenty of light throughout the day

It doesn’t matter if the light is natural or artificial, what’s important is that the wall receives plenty of illumination all day long and of course at night.

2. A wall that makes you go hmmm…


When selecting your gallery wall don’t overlook unusual spots, walls with strange angles as they can really add to the look and feel of your frames. Don’t worry about how the picture frames will fit…that’s what the adjustable picture hooks are for. You want this wall to be a focal point, something to get people’s attention.

3. Choose an anchor piece that makes a statement


It should be a little larger than your other picture frames and doesn’t have to match the color theme of the wall. Let it stand out, be bold and get your guests attention. This piece should be thought of as an anchor for the rest of your pictures to feed off of.

4. Don’t….we mean it…Don’t us matching frames for all of your pictures and prints


Mix it up, get creative, show your personality. This Gallery wall is meant to showcase you, your home and how you feel so don’t be shy. A simple rule of thumb is to have all of the frames have some sort of common element. Each frame is slightly different a mix of unconnected shapes, color and material.

5. Mix in art you really love


When you use art that you’re connected with or makes you feel a certain way it makes the collage more intimate, showing your friends and family a special side of you. When you utilize art that has personal meaning it comes through in the overall appreciation of the display.

6. Make sure your wall is connected to the rest of the room.


This is an area where most people fail when putting up a gallery wall. The easiest way is to break the rules of spacing and hang the wall closer than “normal” to a large piece in the room such as a sofa or curio. Feel free to infringe on the wall space slightly with a floor lamp or table lamp. You can even place a credenza with vertical pieces which infringe on the bottom of the wall. It will all tie together to make for an interesting and intriguing collage.
