Gallery walls are a great way to showcase your favourite photos and pieces of art. They can be designed for any space in your home, from the smallest of bedrooms to the largest of living rooms. Gallery walls are also fantastic for those spaces which can be awkward to decorate, like staircases or hallways.
We thought it would be fun to feature some of the photos our amazing customers have shared displaying the gallery walls they’ve created. And to help inspire you with your own designs, we’ve also included layout templates for each example, with details of the print or frame sizes.

Living Room Gallery Wall Ideas
The living room is one of the more popular rooms to create a photo gallery wall, and for good reason! Oftentimes, this space has at least one large wall that acts as the perfect blank canvas for creating a gallery wall. In addition to that, the living room is also a go-to for showcasing favourite photos and art pieces because so much time is spent in this space. It’s only natural that you’d want it to include beautiful decor you’re excited to look at day in and day out!
Although these layouts would work in nearly any room, here are several gorgeous living room gallery walls.

Entryway, Hallway, & Staircase Gallery Walls
Entryways, hallways, and staircases are often neglected in terms of decorating because they present us with unique challenges, like odd angles or a very narrow space. In fact, we have a whole article dedicated to tips and ideas for arranging pictures in a staircase.
Check out these hallway and staircase gallery walls for some inspiration.
A Versatile Photo Gallery Wall Design
Because a gallery wall is a collection of different prints, you can use the same pieces to create a whole new look down the road when you feel like your space needs a refresh. You can rearrange the layout on the same wall, add new prints to the gallery wall overtime, or even break the gallery wall up and display your prints separately throughout your home. Your options are endless!

Gallery walls can be created using any number of prints. Some people prefer the look of combining several prints in various sizes, others love to combine photos with artwork and other pieces of decor, while still others like to decorate their space with just two or three large prints, like the example below.
Corner Office Gallery Wall
Expanding your gallery wall to be on more than one wall is another great idea that can look fantastic in spaces where the furniture is near a corner wall, whether that’s a crib in a nursery, a oversized recliner in a living room, or a corner office desk, like in this example below.
