Gallery walls are an easy way to add a luxurious touch to your home. They're totally customizable and show off every homeowner's unique personality; however, home galleries age just like any other piece of décor.
If you want to keep your home design relevant, consider following a few trendy tips for upgrading your gallery wall. Don't worry—you won't have to part with your precious painting to maintain your home's style. Instead, use these ideas to keep up with the times.
Play Around With Interesting Textures
Sometimes, gallery walls can look a little flat. If you want to add some dimension, don't be afraid to play around with interesting textures. 2023 is all about leaning into your personal style; if you see a hanging or frame that looks cool and feels interesting, put it up!
Choose frames with tactile patterns and intricate engravings. Consider adding 3D art to bring your gallery wall to life. You could also experiment with wallpaper samples, textiles, and other unconventional hangings to make your space more dynamic.
Choose Different Types of Wall Hangings
Speaking of unconventional wall hangings, don't limit yourself to traditional art. As long as your wall structure can support it, anything can be part of your gallery. Many people install shelves so they can incorporate plants and other trinkets into their layouts.
You could also hang vintage clocks, old postcards, and other sentimental items. Don't forget to hang antique art in your home for some timeless charm. Your vintage vinyl collection could also make an interesting wall hanging when it's not in your record player.
Change Your Frames and Layout
The easiest way to upgrade your gallery wall is to change the art, frames, and overall layout. Don't say goodbye to your favorite pieces; instead, consider retiring ones that have damage or don't hold any nostalgic value.
Mix and match textured and sleek frames. You could also decorate your home sustainably by choosing frames featuring natural materials. Be sure to rearrange your layout now and again; if your usual design is perfectly symmetrical, consider choosing an asymmetrical arrangement next time.
Of course, the most important thing to remember is to trust your decorating instincts. Your home should reflect your preferences and aesthetics. The trendiest gallery wall tip we can offer is to follow the fads you love.
