How To Create An Amazing Gallery Wall

Hanging a gallery of wall prints can be a balancing act. Just trying to find the right balance, spacing, proportions, color, and frames can be tricky. Because you want your prints not to just transform your space but you also want it to enhance the look and feel it gives to your space. So, before you start hanging here are a few tricks to help you along.

Never hang your prints too high on the wall. It is best to hang your prints at eye level. Because you want your guest to see and enjoy your beautiful gallery wall. Hang it to high and it will not catch their eye.

Always keep in mind proportion and balance. When hanging prints above your sofa or bed leave enough space between the sofa/bed and the framed prints. But do not leave to much space as well.

Your prints should not be wider than the sofa/bed because you do not want the prints to overwhelm the furniture instead of enhancing it.

A good general rule for hanging your prints is that the bottom of your frame should hang 8 inches to 10 inches above the back of the sofa. But when hanging a grouping of frames you can play around with the measurements a little. Just make sure that you hang it low so that you can still have all your prints in eye view even when sitting down.

Create balance by hanging your prints at least 2 to 3 cm the length of the sofa. If you want to create a bigger piece you can hang two prints together to create one bigger piece. When hanging a group of prints be sure to leave at least 2 inches to 5 inches between each frame to achieve even spacing. Be sure not to hang your frames too far apart as it will only look disjointed and as if you are trying to fill the wall, when what you want to achieve is a cohesive look, almost like each of the pieces are connected to one another.
