How to Create a Gallery Wall

Creating a gallery wall is like adding a splash of personality to your home’s blank canvas. It's timeless, versatile, and totally customisable to fit any space or style. Whether you're aiming for a sleek modern look or a cosy eclectic vibe, gallery wall frames are your ticket to transforming plain walls into a work of art. And guess what?

From choosing the right photo frames to arranging them just so, we've got everything you need to create a stunning focal point that'll have everyone swooning.

1) Search for Inspiration

When you're diving into the world of creating a gallery wall, the first step is finding your inspiration and setting the tone for your space. Think about the theme you want to convey - whether it's a chic minimalist vibe or a cosy, family-oriented feel. Keeping colours coordinated is key to ensuring all your gallery wall photo frames balance beautifully together, whether they're showcasing art prints or cherished family photos.

For top-notch inspiration, head over to Pinterest where endless boards await with creative layouts and thematic ideas. You can also draw inspiration from trendy cafes or home shows and exhibitions, where interior design brilliance often takes centre stage. For a seamless blend of style and affordability, Poundland's Pep&Co Home Photo Frame, available online and in-store, fits effortlessly into any theme you choose, making it a must-have for your gallery wall masterpiece.

2) Frame Your Wall Art

Once you've nailed down your wall art or decided on creating a picture-perfect gallery with your favourite photos, it's time to frame it up for maximum impact. Choosing the right photo frames is crucial as they should complement your artwork and enhance its visual appeal - especially if you're opting for a stylish border.

Poundland offers a fantastic selection of frames, both online and in-store, that are ideal for showcasing your wall art or photo collection. The Pep&Co Photo Frame (15cm x 20cm) available in Black and Gold, adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any gallery wall.

3) Plan the Layout of the Gallery Wall

When you're gearing up to plan your gallery wall, location and layout are everything! Consider where your wall will be and how the arrangement will flow with the room's vibe. Choose a focal wall that can really showcase your prints or art, whether it's behind the dining table in the kitchen, above the sofa in the living room, or along the hallway for a welcoming touch.

4) Find the Right Balance Between Wall Art & Photos

Finding the perfect balance between wall art and personal photos is key to creating a gallery wall that truly reflects your style and personality. Start by laying out your proposed gallery wall photos on the floor to experiment with different arrangements and compositions. Mix things up by distributing posters with motivational quotes or artistic motifs to add depth and character to your display. This approach not only breaks up the visual repetition, but also creates a thematic flow that can evoke relaxation or inspiration depending on your mood. Dive into Poundland's selection of frames and home decor to discover endless wall gallery ideas that cater to your unique taste.

5) The Best Way to Hang Your Gallery Wall Prints

When it comes to hanging your gallery wall prints, Poundland has you covered with options that suit every need, especially if you're renting.

Our Best Gallery Wall Ideas for You to Try

At Poundland, our team is packed with creative tips to inspire your gallery wall journey. One approach we love is using paper cut in the shape of your chosen frames to visualise your masterpiece. Simply tape them to the wall to plan your layout before committing. This technique ensures you get the perfect arrangement without any guesswork. Once you're satisfied with the placement, you can confidently hammer in nails or apply grip strips, ensuring your artwork hangs exactly where you want it. Whether you're a seasoned decorator or just starting out, Poundland has everything you need to bring your gallery wall dreams to life effortlessly.
