cool grid gallery walls that catch an eye cover

A gallery wall is a cool decor idea that is a display of photos, art and various objects you want on the wall. Gallery walls are usually organized as a grid or free form, and I’d like to show some beautiful ideas and give you some tips on grid gallery walls that are the most popular ones for modern, minimalist and other interiors with a more contemporary flair.

Design

The main advantage of a grid gallery wall is that it’s rather easy to design yourself without any help. You will just hang everything in a grid leaving the same space in between the frames. You will just have to make some marks on the wall to make sure that you are hanging them perfectly and voila, you won’t have to take pics, plan sizes and so on, all the frames or artworks will be of the same size.

Frames And Matting

A grid gallery wall is classics that usually features frames, they can be thin or thick, neutral or bold but keep in mind that the bolder and thicker you frame is, the more attention it will get, while you may want your art to catch an eye. Thin frames and matting of the same color may seem floating in the air, which is a cool idea, and thin metallic frames will shine a bit showing off your art at its best. You may also want to use no frames at all, just art, and this is a fresh modern option. As for mats, they can be large, small or you may have no matting at all but I must say that mats show off your art better than no mats at all.

Creative Ideas

If you want a grid gallery wall but it seems a bit boring to you, you may add spice to it! The easiest idea is placing your art in the top part of the frame leaving much matting below – that catches an eye a lot. Another way to go is creating a grid gallery wall of mismatching frames – they may differ in size and shape in the rows – vertical or horizontal ones. Such decor creates an impression of a free form gallery but you still have a very regular rectangle or square on the whole. Enjoy!
