Aside from painting them in pretty colors, one great way to spruce up the walls of your home is by making a gallery wall. But you don’t have to be an art collector to do this—a few of your favorite artworks, photographs, and decorative items will be enough. Here are nine ways to create your very own gallery at home.

Keep it clean

For a sleek, minimalist look, put your photographs or paintings in frames that are the same in size and appearance, then set them up in neat rows. You can even try going for a simple palette, like black and white. Instantly, you’ll get a gallery wall that’s neat and relaxing to gaze at.

Mix and match

If you want to go a more adventurous route, use frames of different shapes, sizes, and colors. This is a great way to add more visual interest to any space!

Hang up some interesting pieces

Make your wall more attention-grabbing by putting up interesting wall décor along with your frames, like painted ceramic plates, decals, even mirrors and clocks.

Let your artworks pop

To get a hint of texture, try painting your frames in the same color as your walls. Your frames don’t have to be the same size or kind. Any color will do, but using a darker hue will provide a much stronger impact.

Include some greenery

Plants can add a breath of fresh air to any room. Add a splash of green to your personal gallery by placing a potted plant (or a few) next to your favorite paintings and photographs.

Utilize your floating shelves

Aside from vignettes or books, framed photos and artworks are great for sprucing up your empty floating shelves. You can also try putting together works of art and decorative items to make your shelves even more interesting.

Go for inspiring words

If you want to have your own gallery wall at home but are not much for art, you can use motivational quotes instead. Inspirational phrases written in calligraphy incorporated with arts and graphics are popular nowadays, but aside from that, they keep you feeling motivated every time you see them.

Keep pieces to a minimum

Gallery walls don’t have to contain a lot of pieces. Sometimes, one or two big works will suffice. This is one simple yet creative way to make the most of any bare wall, or that empty space above your bed.

Use your floor space

If you live in a rented space, drilling holes in your walls to install hooks is not the most ideal option. But not to worry—simply propping up your paintings on the floor can be an easy way to still incorporate art into your home.
