Gallery walls have graced our homes for the past few years and are still proving popular in 2019. Home galleries are an easy way of creating a personalised, yet chic look in any space. If you thought that gallery walls were simply a mishmash of family pictures, professional photos and artwork, thrown together in a random collection of frames, however, you would be mistaken. We have compiled a list of things to remember when creating your own home gallery.
Balance your sizes
When it comes to the placement of your artwork, it’s important to maintain a balance of sizes and shapes. Gallery walls can often look like they have just been thrown up onto the wall randomly, with little thought as to size or shape of the frame. This is not the case. Larger, more eye-catching pieces should certainly be spread throughout the wall evenly, with smaller pieces acting as accents around them.
It is also important not to place frames too close together if you are working with a large space. Frames clustered together, with little space between them can make a space look too cluttered and can often detract attention from the artwork altogether.
