  • Plan your design 
  • Once you have been able to create the perfect gallery wall design for your room, the next step is to plan out exactly how it will look. To do this, you should first measure the space you have available, which will then help you to establish what size frames and images you require. To ensure you have the perfect gallery wall for your home, you could create templates to pin to the space first, giving you a visual representation of what it will look like. Keeping a smaller gap between each frame is a great way to ensure your wall makes a more significant impact on guests, while using different sized frames help to make your wall a real centerpiece of the room.

  • Utilize colors
  • Choosing the right color palette is essential to creating the perfect gallery wall. The colors you choose will bring your room together and will depend on the theme and design you have chosen. If you are utilizing neutral images and colors, then you could hang them on a bold colored wall, while if you are using brighter and more vibrant images, then consider hanging them on a more neutral wall to help them to stand out more.
