How to: What is a Gallery Wall? A gallery wall is a selection of photographs, prints, paintings or any other kind of art that are installed together on a wall. It’s a popular method for adding color and interest to your rooms and also a very creative way to fill empty wall space. Read on to learn more about this trendy style for putting up art in your home or office.
The fun thing about doing this type of installation is that it can be as eclectic as you like. You can have a theme (like pets) or you can put together totally different kinds of items together. You can use sculpture, paintings, reliefs, photographs and textiles. It’s really up to your imagination what you want to include.
The most important thing is to design a good layout. When doing the layout and design of your wall it’s really important to curate the collection of items you have so that they make sense as a whole. You’ll want a good balance of light and dark colors. You also want to look at the position and size of the items relative to each other. Try putting the focal piece of your design in the center and build out from there. Typically, when we are laying out a gallery wall installation, we like to simulate the layout on the floor in front of the installation wall. This way we can physically design an optimal layout and then mirror it onto the wall.
