GUIDE: CREATE A POSTER WALL

Read our guide: how to make your own gallery wall. You can achieve a calm and harmonious look by grouping your posters and pictures together to create a gallery wall. But before you drive the first nail into the wall, it’s a good idea to have a plan for how you want to place the pictures in relation to each other. We offer you our best tips on how to create your own personal gallery wall.

 

1. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 92 cm and the height is around 89 cm 

- The first thing you need to consider is where you want to display your pictures. Do you want them on the wall above your sofa in the living room? In the hallway? Or by your dining table?

2. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 107 cm and the height is around 119 cm

- Measure the wall you have picked, so you know exactly how much space you have to work with. Combining posters in varying sizes can create a great effect.

3. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 129 cm and the height is around 149 cm

- If you want to hang your pictures over your sofa, remember to leave some free space between the top of the sofa and the lowest-hanging pictures. You don’t want the person sitting in the sofa banging their head on one of the pictures! Leaving some space between the upper edge of the top picture and the ceiling also contributes to a calm and harmonious look.

4. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 127 cm and the height is around 119 cm

- You can use the width of the furniture piece (sofa, table, bookcase) as a reference for centring the pictures.

5. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 147 cm and the height is around 119 cm

- Get an overview by placing your framed pictures on the floor the way you are planning to hang them on the wall. You can either choose to let the pictures touch or space them out slightly. As a general rule of thumb, leave five cm of space between the frames if your wall includes three or more pictures. The bigger the wall space, the more distance you can leave between the pictures.

6. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 147 cm and the height is around 129 cm

- Create a calm and balanced feel by choosing frames of the same material or colour.

7. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is 127 cm and the height is 149 cm

- Begin by hanging the picture that is placed at the top and in the centre. When you have that in place, you can use that as your point of reference to measure out and establish the rest of the gallery wall.

8. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 167 cm and the height is around 167 cm

- If you are like most people, we recommend that you use a spirit level. Place it on top of the frame you just hung to be sure that all your pictures are going to be level. Now, measure a vertical line down to the mounting hardware/hanging clip of the picture below. In many cases, the mounting hardware is placed a few centimetres down from the top of the frame.

9. Poster wall (including frames and spaces)
The breadth is around 187 cm and the height is around 149 cm

- Use a nail with a large head or a screw that is strong enough to carry the weight of the glass. It helps to drive the nail in at an angle to the wall, so that the head of the nail points up.
