8 Tips on how to make the perfect gallery wall

Framed photos will also be a big hit this year for your dreamy home, so we picked eight arrangements that you can use to organize your favorite pictures. Get inspired, be organized and start making a splendid gallery wall:


1. On the center

This is one of the easiest photo walls you can try for your home. Just pick one or two big frames which you really love and place them on the center. After that, align smaller frames on their left and right side. This arrangement will look well organized and it will give your home a cool and elegant vibe.


2. Spiral

Start with a frame that will be the main star of your gallery wall and, around it, arrange frames on a spiral. In this way you can make a story and make the first frame really stand out in the room.


3. Perfect fit

Pick different sizes of frames and make sure you align them in a way they fit perfectly. It works great for black and white frames with artistic pictures and they will make your home really creative.


4. Reflection

In this arrangement you have to make order so just follow a horizontal or vertical line and arrange frames on their left and on their right, just like a reflection.


5. Outer align

Just align all your frames and create a perfect square or rectangle. It’s perfect for people who really love their home to be perfectly organized.



6. Nine square

This is a really popular arrangement that features nine perfectly aligned and matched pictures, usually having the same frame. It works great for offices and family walls.


7. Staircase

There are a lot of ways to arrange you frames on your staircase, but the easiest one is to follow your staircase lines, so start from the bottom and add frames in an arrangement that will follow the angle of the stairs. So, in this way, your gallery wall will also look like a small stair.


8. On the shelf

Mix big and small frames and add them on a shelf. Follow a certain chromatic and theme. It works great next to televisions or bookcases and its perfect for hanging pictures with friends and family or framing different kinds of memories.

  1. My husband and I are recently married and we have just moved into our first home! I am so excited to start decorating, and I definitely want some elegant wall art. These wall galleries are beautiful! Using a verticle or horizontal line and then building off of that is a great way to make the wall art visually appealing! Thanks so much for sharing!
