How To Create A Gallery Wall In Your Living Room

Gallery walls can work wonders for your living room, transforming a blank and tired wall into a creative masterpiece. They can fill an otherwise empty space with a hive of colour, warmth and above all else, personality. Using your sofa as your focal point, discover how you can create a striking gallery wall in your living room...

Make a moodboard

Before you hammer the first nail into the wall, get inspired by creating a mood board on Pinterest. Focus on one overall tone, such as bright and energetic, or mellow and soothing. To achieve this, it helps to pick an anchor piece as your starting point, remembering to include other elements such as mirrors or sculptures to bring variation and levels.

Choose your frames

Don't overlook the importance of choosing the right frames. Start by choosing your look - you could decide to go traditional and vintage, or perhaps modern and minimal. For example, a thick white frame would look great in a modern space but would look odd in a more luxurious and ornate living room. 

Choose your sizes

When it comes to the size of your gallery wall, keep it within a set space – such as the width of your sofa or between two windows – to make it a big and bold focal point, or be brave and make a masterpiece of the full wall.

Choose your layout

The best practice for mapping out your gallery wall is to place your frames flat on the floor to play around with the layout. The selected pieces should be situated close together, with a one to two-inch gap between them.

Choose your placement

Gallery walls work best when they frame an object, such as your sofa, to bring the room together. However, it’s best to avoid placing it behind objects that could make it look cluttered or detract from its magic, such as a TV.
