Figuring out where to hang your framed photos or canvas gallery wraps can be very stressful. A lot of people put it off simply because they don’t really know where to start or if it will look how they visioned it. I sympathize with all of you…I’ve always stuck to the simple photos, either three lined up along the wall or better yet, not grouping them at all! Grouping photos gives you the opportunity to have a variety of sizes in the same area and they look amazing when they have a common theme or taken from the same photo session.
To help everyone out, I’ve figured out a way to lay out your photos on your wall with just some measuring and without any fuss. I originally thought of the trick I’ve read before when you cut out templates of card board but I thought that since I would need to actually tape them to the wall to see how they would look then why not subtract the cardboard (let’s be honest, do we all have a ton of this laying around not being used?) just use painters tape to outline them on the wall?!
All you need is:
I simply laid the measuring tape out on the floor and starting tearing the painters tape to the sizes I wanted to lay out. For my example I’m going to hang 1 qty 24×36 canvas wrap and 2 qty 10×10 gallery wraps.
Now the photos above are just examples…I know they do not exactly look professional. This is just another way, an easy way for you to see a variety of size layouts on your wall. I probably would have measured 5 more times had these been the actual prints 🙂
I hope that helps you all and there will be a follow up post to this with some canvas gallery wrap grouping options!
