Create a Gallery Wall

Turn a blank space into a gorgeous gallery wall with these art arranging tips.

Create a gallery wall display to fill a blank wall with style and personality. First, gather art or other hanging objects that share the same color palette. Create paper patterns of the art and tape them to the wall to test out the arrangement before you hang the pieces. Position the most prominent piece on the wall first in the center at eye level. Hang the next largest pieces. A balanced arrangement might feature one frame above the center piece, the other at its side. Keep the distance between each item uniform. Pairs of plates hung on each side of the arrangement also creates a balanced effect. The circular pieces also add contrast to the square frames. Fill the remaining open areas for small works of like sizes and shapes until the gallery wall display is complete. We've transformed to this blank wall into a showpiece.
