Do: Plan Your Layout

Before you start hammering nails into the wall, take some time to plan your layout. Use painter's tape or paper cutouts to visualize how your frames will look in the space. Consider using one of our Gallery Wall Collections to make the process even easier.

Don't: Rush the Process

Creating a gallery wall is an art, not a race. Take your time selecting the right pieces, frames, and layout. Rushing can lead to mistakes that are hard to undo.

Selecting The Right Frames

Do: Mix and Match

Don't be afraid to mix different styles, colors, and sizes of frames. Our Gallery Wall Collections offer a variety of options that can be customized to fit your unique style.

Don't: Overwhelm the Space

While it's tempting to fill every inch of wall space, less is often more. Make sure to leave some negative space to let each piece breathe.

Don't: Forget to Update
