Ok, let’s be honest. Sometimes you just want it done for you. That is usually how I feel when I am putting together a gallery wall with art or even pictures. Measurements can be so hard sometimes. Give me all the ideas and just tell me what to do!
Ha! Can you relate?
Having the option to mix and match is fun and I have definitely done this but sometimes having a template and pictures to follow just makes it easier and takes the guess work out of what can sometimes be a painful process.

For me art is like the icing on the cake. It finishes spaces and adds that extra character we all love when making our houses into our homes!
Done For You Gallery Wall Art
I personally have fallen in love with the done for you gallery wall art prints over on Amazon. My favorite part is that you can get 5 prints for under $16 dollars. All you need to do is find frames around your home or buy your own.
These prints come with a template for how to layout them out on your wall or you can choose to hang them however you want. There are so many options and so many types of art that there is sure to be something for everyone.
Below is a picture of the ones I purchase for our laundry room. I just love them! If you want to see them in action I shared them up close and personal in my AMAZON LIVE linked here!
I have also seen where Pottery Barn offers a Livingroom Art Gallery in a box. It is quite expensive but they come framed, some with mats and backed with d-rings for easy hanging. You can buy all 6 framed prints together or buy them individually. There are several options on their page and very high quality.
Another company that helps you with gallery wall ideas for both art and personal pictures is a website called Mixtiles. I have not personally used them but I have had several friends who have and absolutely love them. They help you choose a configuration, upload your pictures and even choose a frame. A fun option for any space and they often offer discounts!

Tips On How To Hang a Gallery Wall
Hanging a gallery wall can be tough but here are a few tips that just might help!
- Choose your artwork. This is the fun part! You can choose family photos, prints from your favorite artist, or even mix and match. Just make sure that you love the pieces you choose.
- Choose your frame style. Once you’ve chosen your artwork, it’s time to pick out frames that will complement it. If you’re going for a more formal look, choose matching frames in a classic style. If you’re going for a more eclectic look, mix and match different frame styles and colors.
- Layout your gallery wall. This is where things can get a little tricky. You’ll want to take into account the size of your artwork and frames, as well as the spacing between each piece. A good rule of thumb is to leave about 2-3 inches between each piece of art.
- Hang your artwork. Once you’ve figured out your layout, it’s time to start hanging! Start with the center piece and work your way out from there. Use picture hangers or nails that are appropriate for the weight of your artwork and frames. And don’t forget to step back and admire your handiwork once you’re done!
