If you have a ton of family photos and the wall space for all your pictures, you should try putting up a gallery wall in your home. Gallery walls are incredibly gorgeous, but have so much potential to look off or go wrong with all the items and photos you’re trying to get up on the wall.

How to arrange photos on the wall?

Before putting the photos up, put up sheets of paper on the wall to map out your future gallery wall. Plan everything out including the spacing between all the different objects. Consider size, shape and scale when planning your gallery wall out. Choose larger objects for a bigger wall, place them vertically or horizontally while keeping them proportional to the scale of the wall.

What is the formula for hanging pictures?

Avoid overcrowding. Leave some space around the wall, don’t hang the pictures too close to the edge. Make sure there is an even space of a few inches (depends of the scale of your wall) between the pictures.
The colors of your frames and art pieces/photos need to work with other areas of the room, make sure the colors and textures of your interior align with the gallery pieces.
