Tips for Building a Gallery of Photos on Your Wall


If the goal is to transform your house into a haven and fill it with warmth and love, building a gallery of family photos on your wall< is the way to go! When using canvas printers, doing so can be an affordable and enjoyable exercise for the entire family to get involved in. The question is, where do you start? We have some tips to share with you below. 
  •  Use More than Just Photos

    The most interesting and quirky gallery walls include all sorts of décor to complement the beautiful photographs. Think modern prints, witty typography and empty, stylised photo frames.
  • Change it Up

    Let your gallery wall masterpiece grow alongside your family! There is no reason not to update it every few months with the latest holiday snaps or school photos. This means that it will always be a spot that draws in your guests and allows you to showcase your family’s best moments and achievements.
  • Plan it First

    The easiest way in which to choose a gallery wall layout that you love is to plan it out on the floor before hanging everything on the wall. This is sure to reduce the number of swaps and change-overs, and ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible.
  • Light it Up

    One of the most stunning gallery wall ideas on Pinterest at the moment is to include fairy lights amongst the pieces. Not only do these flickering lights demand attention, but they also add an air of warmth and welcoming to your newly completed masterpiece.
