Gallery walls made simple

We have tons of gallery walls in our house. I keep thinking how I should change it up and hang something else on the walls, but I just can’t. I really love symmetrical, gridded gallery walls. If that’s your jam, then stay tuned for some Tricks and tips for hanging a stylish and eye catching gallery wall.

1. Plan your space

Whether you measure your space and draw it out, or simply practice arranging your frames in the floor, you probably want to plan your gallery before you hang your frames. I like to lay all my frames out in the floor and space them out before I start hanging them. This gives me a visual and I can move around my frames without damaging the walls.

2. Use a level and a tape measure

There’s nothing worse than hanging a picture crookedly or messing up your gallery wall spacing. We are sticklers for making sure our pictures are hanging straight so levels are the stuff in this house. Did you know you can always use your level to space your gallery wall objects as well.

3. Make your gallery wall more interesting by varying your heights

Use a lot of different objects to make your gallery wall super interesting. The varying heights keep your eye moving and it makes your space seem larger.

4. Use Command Strips

Command strips are the best product EVER. I love them because I can just peel off the paper, stick the picture where I want it and then I simply press the objects Against the wall. It only takes a minute to create a gorgeous gallery wall.
