The ‘Yacht of our Home’ gets its moment this year with a refreshing makeover of the perfect gallery wall! Yup, it’s a fast sailing vessel to a deep slumber in tranquility. We have been working on remodeling our bedroom and planned to work one thing at a time after our office hours.
Day 1 – Creating a gallery wall layout
We figured out that the blank wall space was the first thing that needed transformation and creating a photo gallery wall would be perfect.
If you would like to add coziness and bring a style to your home, then create a photo gallery wall or staircase gallery wall. Be it, with lovely photographs or creative artwork, they add personal style and uniqueness to any empty wall space. As you stare at each photograph, it takes a walk down the memory lane.
The best thing is, eventually you could keep it growing and add more pictures!! Staircase gallery wall would be very apt.
Here’s how to create a perfect gallery wall frames:
- Choose the Frame – Choose a classic frame style for a unique look. We chose black and white frames in different sizes. We bought it from here. Always have one or two larger frames to serve as a major focal point.
- Determine gallery wall layout style – Measure the wall space and then lay out all the frames on the ground & figure out the layout that you love the most. Create a lay-out style along the vertical line going down the centre of the wall, thus creating a visual balance.
- Have the photos printed – Make sure to choose photographs that reflect happiness and memories to treasure. It should bring the empty space into light and narrate a story whenever you get to see it. Never choose a family portrait or religious pictures for the bedroom gallery wall. We chose some of the pictures from our post-wedding shoot and some from our trips.
- Hang Frames – Cut pieces of paper to trace the size of the frame and tape them on the wall by keeping an even distance of 2 to 3 inches. This will give you a feel of your layout. Always, use a level before nailing the frame. Be cautious of knowing electrical lines, when you’re nailing.
