Gallery Wall

Have you got lots of family photos that you would love to display on your wall instead of them being lost on your phone? Or maybe you've had a photoshoot or recently got married and are wondering what to do with the photos? I've got some layout ideas for you!

Gallery Wall Layout

The easiest and simplest layout that anyone can do is the minimalist trio. If you've got a blank wall over the sofa or your bed and you're not sure how to make it interesting, this is the perfect way to add some balance to the room. This style works well for images that relate to each other.

Gallery Wall Layout

Similar to the minimalist trio, is a simple grid; perfect in either landscape or portrait orientation. This is a classic and traditional layout that can fill a small gap nicely. As long as the frames are evenly spaced, it does not matter the size of the gaps between them.

If you want to make a jump up from a simple grid, why not try a classic square grid? Think of it like an Instagram feed! This can fill a space in the same way a window does and is satisfyingly symmetrical. Also a traditional layout, it will add some class to your wall, enhanced by the sqaure frames.

Going back to our trio, this is a varient that allows you to draw attention to one image in particular. You can tel the viewer which image you love the most by making it the focal point.

In a very similar style, you can choose an image to make your focal point, but add more photos at different sizes. Although it is asymmetrical, it is self contained and creates variation for the viewer.

Taking a small step away from the classic layouts, a spiral layout gives a more artistic but systematic appearence. The frames are all aligned in the middle, however they have a directional movement to them.

The vintage style is eclectic and spaced out. This can be pieced together however you like, but often use smaller frames, rarely matching.

One of my personal favourites is the new modern gallery wall, having evolved slightly from the vintage style. Whilst this can also be quite eclectic, it gives the appearence of having more thought put into it with the frames being closer to each other and sometimes aligning.

Of course, there are more ways to display your photos than a feature wall. A frame on a desk or a photo album on the coffee table are just as special. Command strips are a wonderful invention as you can put your pictures on the wall and move them if you decide you want to change your layout. Get creative!



 


Thank you for joining me over here! If you don't know me, I'm Livi: a photographer from Cambridge. I love to knit, bake and read - yes, I am indeed a twenty-something-granny.


Although I studied Classical Studies at uni, I always knew I would end up doing something creative with my life and this seems to be it. I have always loved taking photographs, but that passion came alive when I started my photography diploma.


I'm here to give you an insight into photoshoots, encourage you to get behind the lens and hopefully excite you about photography.
