Tips for creating a corner gallery wall

Pick your frames and artwork

First things first, choose your artwork and picture frames. Bear in mind the colour scheme and the size of your frames. To fill a large space in a corner (such as the space at the bottom of a staircase), you'll need LOTS of pictures and they can be as random or coordinated as you like.

Mix and match different-sized frames

A great way to create an eye-catching corner gallery wall is to mix and match different-sized frames. Large frames are a good way to fill space and small frames will fill in the gaps and add interesting details.

Plan your layout with paper templates

Next, plan your corner gallery wall layout. The easiest way to do this is with paper templates that you can temporarily stick to the wall to experiment with different layouts.

Once you've chosen each frame, trace around it on a large sheet of paper and cut it out to make a template. If you're not sure where to start, place the first frames in the middle of the corner where the two walls join and work outwards.
