How to create an art gallery wall from scratch

Blank walls big and small, rejoice! We have been working away on a new collection of art prints. Now you can choose from works exploring digital painting, collage, illustration and photography.

The prints look just as good hanging solo as they do in a big group. The more the merrier in fact! To demonstrate, we pulled together instructions on how to create an art wall.



Before hammers and nails start flying around, place your selection of prints on the floor to find a composition you like. If you're a visual type-A personality (which we can totally relate to), mapping out the prints can help you visualise how they'll fit into space without committing to size and placement until you get it right. Take a photo to use as your guide.



Avoid choosing prints that are all the same, mix it up and spread the love. A mix of sizes and orientations is key to creating a successful art wall. Avoid clumping similar types of prints together



Hang the largest print first, this will act as your anchor. A grid of smaller works can be a cost-effective way to fill a wall instead of one large piece. We recommend hanging this at eye level for a winning art wall. Generally, this is about 1.5m off the floor.



The rule of thumb is at least an 8cm gap between each frame. Nobody is perfect and either should your gaps be, it gives your art wall character.



Choose different frame finishes to give your art wall a fun eclectic look. Two or three different kinds are ideal.



Add more prints to fill your wall. Style with odd numbers for the perfect art wall. Now sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery.
