Tips for Creating a Gallery Wall with Canvas Prints

Gallery walls go beyond a curated collection of photos for your wall. More than that, they’re an easy and versatile way of immortalizing your creativity and memories. There’s a reason this type of wall decor never goes out of style. Gallery walls that tell stories on canvas prints, add a touch of personality and creativity to any area of your home.

Best of all, they’re incredibly easy to put together! If you’re wondering how to create a gallery wall from scratch, the following short guide will help you craft a beautiful and unique wall display using canvas prints.

Types of Photos to Print on a Gallery Wall

There are no rules for the types of photos you can display on a gallery wall. Your only goal is to be creative and have fun with photos that complement your interior design.

At this point, you’re just trying things out. You can mix and match different photos to find a combination you’ll fall in love with. You can use wedding photos, family photos, pet photos, portraits, abstract art, or all of them together. It’s up to you.

If one combination doesn’t work for you, try another one. Don’t overthink it!

We like to tell our customers to pick images that make them smile. You’ll likely be looking at your gallery wall every single day – so not only should it bring you joy, but it should also be a composition you’ll be proud of showing your guests, friends, and family.

Location of My Gallery Wall

Just because it’s called a “gallery wall,” that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll need a big, bare wall to do it. That’s right! All you need is a little bit of blank space and creativity.

Regardless of where it’s located, a gallery wall can add personality to big and small areas alike. It will look amazing around your chest of drawers, as well as above desks, headboards, and cribs. You can also use them to make your staircase extra glamorous.

When in doubt, consider putting your gallery wall in high-traffic and entertaining spaces in your home. Or, if you’d prefer, add them to empty wall spaces that could use some extra oomph. Just make sure they don’t compete with other eye-catching elements, like patterned walls and bold motifs.

Your location of choice will also give you an idea of which sizes your prints should be for a fitting composition.

How to Prepare My Gallery Wall

Once you’ve selected your photos and ideal canvas sizes, it’s time to prepare your gallery wall by getting your canvas prints ready to go.

Take your time to choose the photos you want. Sift through your photo archives and gallery on your phone or computer.

Pro Tip!  To better organize your photos, we recommend that you create a folder named “Gallery Wall” or something similar, so that you can drop your selected photos in a single place.

Printing the Right Amount of Canvases

After you’ve carefully selected the photos you want, you’ll need to print the right amount of canvases.

This is the easiest part of the whole process, because you won’t be doing any of the printing. All you have to do is upload the photos you want to, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Click on “Upload a Photo.” Once you’ve uploaded your photo, you can edit it to your liking.
