If you love the idea of a gallery wall, but don’t have the time or inclination to fuss – here’s a quick and easy, lazy guide to creating a gallery wall
I’d love to create a gallery wall of family photos in my home, but the planning involved to get them perfectly aligned and struggling to commit to a certain frame look puts me off.
That’s why I decided to look for some easy gallery wall ideas. Here are my top picks:
The more the merrier
If you have many photos you’d love to display, this staggered 24-picture multi-frame (R399) could work for you.
I love that it’s simple and white (allowing the photos to shine, rather than the frame). The frame is a one-piece deal, so you get a 24-photo gallery wall without having to measure, drill and hang 24 separate frames. It’s also hard to beat the price.
It’s a look suited to modern, relaxed spaces. Some may find the staggered effect too busy looking, and it may be hard to make it work well in traditional or minimalist spaces.
Three is a charm
If you’re looking for something formal or minimalistic, but still relatively easy to install, consider three of these gorgeous gold multi gallery frames (R139.99 each) with a picture mat for three images, from Mr Price Home.
Okay, you’ll have to measure and drill more than once, but hanging three of these frames will give you an elegant gallery wall for nine images.
I love the warmth that these gold metallic frames could bring to a space – perfect for a dark room you want to lighten up. The addition of picture matt makes the frames look classic while allowing enough blank space between the images to let them stand out on their own.
