Let’s check out some ideas that will instantly add the required drama to any space you are thinking of needs some extra love..
1. Abstract Placement
With abstract composition, it is more casual looking and undoubtedly can pull attention of your visitor. There are many ways you can achieve abstract composition for your gallery wall, but the main thing is you need to be happy with what it looks like to you before executing it.
Tip: Draw the basic arrangement on a piece of paper, cut them to the size of your picture frames and place it on the wall before nailing. This will save you the time and wall from those unnecessary nail damages if you wish to change your mind with the placements of any. Play around with the arrangement until you find yourself satisfied to go ahead with.

2. Grid Placement
This arrangement is the safest if you are in a rush to pull up a gallery wall without putting in many efforts. Measure the area where you want the arrangement, understand the numbers of rows and columns you would want to go for, and work accordingly with frames and the space between them.
Print, Arrange, Nail, Hang, and you are done! Enjoy.. 😉
Tip: Grid arrangement looks perfect with balanced void on all side, so make sure you leave equal space on either sides of the arrangement and equal space in-between the grid too.

4. Picture Ledge
Picture ledge is basically a shelf, not deep enough to store regular display items. It is specifically made to rest books or picture frames onto wall for a cleaner look. It is available in many sizes to fit in any space.
Tip: If you are thinking for a gallery wall for your powder room this option is recommended, to save you extra nailing onto the tiled wall. Because we know how tiles react to drilling.. 😉

Note: Any arrangement you go for, make sure every photograph shares the same filter, to get a sync with each connected frame in the composition for a pleasing experience. Example, you could go black and white, or a specific color filter in every picture to get a blend in your overall setup. 🙂
