Gallery Wall: Miscellaneous Tips

Color Photos or Black and White? Pick a lane! Use either all color or all black and white for the best results.

Ledge Length: Longer ledges are better, but should not extend past the piece of furniture it’s over, if applicable.

Frame Style: Your collection will look cleaner & more modern if all the frames are the same. We also recommend uniform frame styles for any symmetrical wall galleries.

Trick of the Trade: Buy this to keep them all straight & tidy!

Last but not least… Don’t forget the level!
