4 Wild Gallery Wall Ideas

Art and photography are go-to choices for a gallery wall, but those options may get a little well-worn as the décor trend continues to gain in popularity – and that opens up opportunities to get creative.

What makes gallery walls so attractive? Below, we deconstruct the typical gallery wall in an attempt to turn it on its head and give it a fresh face.

Abandon symmetry.

One of the coolest things about a gallery wall is how its disparate parts come together to form a distinct whole, linked together by the lines between the objects. But, don’t be afraid to experiment with those lines.

TIP: Bring a little chaos to your gallery wall by alternating shapes and the spacing between objects.

Add texture.

Art and photos are fun, but they’re also flat. Fluff up your presentation with materials that don’t fit under glass or in a frame.

TIP: Taxidermy (whether real or faux) and textiles are just two ways you can add more texture to your wall gallery.

Reflect on your creative side with mirrors.

Mirrors are a great way to add more dimension to your gallery wall. Big mirrors, small mirrors – you can use any size or shape you feel complements your layout.

TIP: Keep in mind that mirrors used in gallery walls are more about reflecting the room and catching light, so being able to look into them isn’t all that important.

Use shelving in your gallery wall style.

If you would like even greater dimension, you can make your gallery wall pop even more with shelving. Choose styles that match your frames or aim for an eclectic look by going against the grain.

TIP: Try using your shelves to display physical objects that pair with any art and photos you have in the mix to give the display a fully immersive feel.

For even more ideas on how you can get wild with a gallery wall, you can always consult a local interior pro at Porch.com or a virtual designer through Decorist.com
