Looking for tips on how to display photos to update your room really quickly and easily? Well, you are in the right place because we just happen to be pros in displaying pictures, photos and curating the most beautiful gallery walls.

  1. Achieve a balanced display. When displaying pics, it’s best to hang the larger, more heavily framed or larger pieces to the left, which is where the eye will naturally look first, and the lighter, smaller pictures to the right. 
  2. What’s on the floor? Take the furniture under the pieces into consideration. Don’t forget that if you’re displaying pictures over a piece of furniture on which you will be displaying accessories, you’ll need to factor in these objects when creating an arrangement. Working the shape of the gallery around these objects artfully will give the two cohesion.
  3. Create a grid. Create the effect of one large picture by grouping artwork in a tight grid that forms a square or rectangle.
  4. Color Conscious Choices. Choosing accessories that pick out the shades in your artwork will help you draw your room’s scheme together and will also intensify the picture’s colors. Consider the color of the wall your artwork is displayed against, too. A group of photographs featuring similar colors will also work better together, such as all black-and-white images.
  5. Scale is Important. You don’t want something too big or too small. Look for the perfect sizes to compliment each other or one large piece.
  6. Hang photos in odd numbers. If you have just a few pictures to hang, an odd number of pieces grouped together can be more pleasing to the eye than an even number. You could use the middle picture to fix the wall’s center-point, but don’t be afraid to display them off-center, too. Group small pictures so the gaps between are no larger than 2 1/2 inches, while allowing up to 10cm between larger pictures.
  7. Get the height right. Ideally, the center of the picture should be at eye-level, although in a living room, bear in mind that you’ll mostly be seated, so the picture might need to be a little lower – aim to hang the bottom of the first frame of a group at around 4 inches above the back of the sofa.
