GALLERY WALL – DIY
Creating a gallery wall may seem difficult at first. There is actually no right or wrong when it comes to the art of your home. A classic gallery wall may not appeal to you. Or a modern gallery wall does not give you the right feeling. We recommend that you always go for the gut feeling and want to give you some simple tips to get started.

1. The first thing you need to think of before you start is deciding what style you want your gallery wall to have. How big should it be? How many paintings should fit? Should it feel airy or compact? A tip can be to measure the frame sizes with the help of tape on the wall or sketch the wall on a piece of paper to get the right feeling.
2. Have you decided which style you want? Now it’s time to choose art and posters. To create uniformity, we recommend choosing between two to three color combinations. If, on the other hand, you want to create a crazier wall, we recommend that you at least have the frames in the same color. A tip to bring more life to your wall is to choose art and frames in different sizes, it makes a vivid impression.
3. Once you have the paintings, it is time to start measuring. An important detail to get as clean an impression as possible is to use a spirit level to get the paintings straight. A crooked painting can ruin an entire wall, so have a spirit level available.
4. Finally, just start hammering. And voila!
