Let's start with numerous works of art and limited wall space.

First, you have to carefully select your favourites because it is not about clustering your walls with frames and paintings. Indeed, you want to look for quality arrangement to better display your pieces.

Once you decide what you want to hang , you should start to lay them on a floor area about the size of your wall. You will see how they will fit more clearly.

If you are having problems visualizing, I suggest you search the internet for reference sheets on gallery walls. There are great guides for DIY ,so you can easily figure which style you like more.

Horizontally wide walls will require more spacing and maybe more square sized frames. But, of course spread vertical and horizontal pieces to avoid a boring wall.

Vertical walls on the other hand are better for tall frames with a mix of smaller pieces. Keeping the overall area tight will make your walls seem longer but make sure to stretch outside the grid a bit for diversity.

WHAT IF your scene is the opposite? Let's say you have any type of wall but not enough artwork or major pieces.My first tip would be to head for a gallery wall with anything you like including wall decor ,clocks , and mirrors and even bookshelves.

Still not satisfied?? Then, go and invest on smaller budget friendly pieces like framed photos or watercolors.Or just hang your own b&w family photos with black frames.

Trust me, with the guidance of a template,you will achieve a professional look almost anytime.

VIA DESIGN SPONGE

You can easily find them on Pinterest , so get inspired by amazing gallery walls and familiarise with the ones that suit your walls the best.Again, make sure to lay them on a similar sized floor space to get the overall feeling before you nail anything. I doubt that you will want to see more painters once you are settled into your new home, so think before you hole your wall❗️

 

Once you are done , you will enjoy the feeling of being in an actual home.                                    SO COME ON and GET YOUR ART TOGETHER!
