Gallery walls are a great way to display your art or personal photographs in your home or bedroom, more effectively. But creating a stylish, eye-catching gallery wall isn’t as easy as quickly hanging photos on a wall. A well-executed gallery wall takes time and thought. But first, you need to decide which style of gallery wall will be best-suited for your home or bedroom…
When choosing your art, remember it has to be something that resonates with you and your personal style. Our gallery frames have standard sizing for large scale posters but are also suitable for a wide variety of prints such as your wedding photographs, and other personal photos.
Determine how you want your gallery layout to be by tracing the outline of your frame and cutting the shapes out. Lay your composition out on the floor or use masking tape/Blu Tack to temporarily place the layout on your wall, before committing to hanging the art.
Once the layout is on the wall, you're ready to hang it. Frames can be hung either with 3M strips (amazing if you rent as they won't mark your wall) or a hook/nail which are more suitable for heavier frames.
Our gallery frames include hooks on the back, they can be hung portrait or landscape and include a 3mm acrylic cover, meaning a lighter frame (A1 - 3.1kg) and a clearer, safer cover.
Simply use your paper as a guide on where to place the 3M/hook/nail before removing it.
Now you're ready to enjoy your space!
