Gallery Walls: How to Create One in Your Home on a Budget

Do you love art, but don't have the funds to purchase expensive pieces? Or maybe you just don't know where to start when it comes to gallery walls. Fear not! In this blog post, we will teach you how to create a gallery wall on a budget. We will provide tips on what items to buy, as well as where to hang your artwork. So get ready to unleash your inner designer.

Add Some Artwork

The first thing you need to do is choose the artwork that you want to include in your gallery wall. This can be anything from paintings and prints to photographs and even postcards. Once you have selected your artwork, it's time to start assembling your gallery wall.

Choose Your Style

One of the best things about gallery walls is that they are versatile and can be styled to match any décor. If you are going for a modern look, choose simple and clean designs. For a more rustic or vintage vibe, try using eclectic pieces with lots of character.

Start Hanging Your Decorations

When it comes to hanging your artwork, there is no right or wrong way to do it. However, we recommend starting with the largest piece and then working your way down in size. 

Remember to space your pieces evenly apart and alternate the direction of each piece. This will help create a balanced look and prevent your gallery wall from looking too cluttered.

Don't worry about getting all the same frames. Art or photos on a gallery wall, made out of different materials really bring out the uniqueness of your collection. If you'd like a nice organized, uniform look, instead, then go right ahead.

Add Some Mirrors

Mirrors add a nice touch to any gallery wall and can also help to brighten up a room. If you want to add a mirror to your gallery wall, be sure to measure the space first and make sure that it will fit. Stick to smaller mirrors for a gallery wall, as larger mirrors are not only more expensive, but defeat the purpose of filling up your walls with multiple objects to look at.

An Accessory Here or There

Finally, don't forget about the accessories! A gallery wall is not complete without some finishing touches. Try adding a shelf to hold some items. Some sconces would stand out on your walls as well.
