Looking to聽create a gallery wall?聽How about one you can actually afford? Between the frames and prints, the cost of adding聽one can be pricey, but it doesn鈥檛 have to be. Beatrice Fischel-Bock, CEO & Co-Founder of the home decor app聽Hutch, shared her expert advice on how to聽create聽a fabulous yet聽budget-friendly聽art wall for your home. Keep scrolling to check out all of her pro tips below.

1. Use all types of art.聽The most inspiring gallery walls聽can also be the most random. Fischel-Bock suggests that unless you have a v. specific look in mind (like a black and white ensemble), it鈥檚 better to play with multiple mediums.聽From聽paintings and photographs to handmade art聽and graphic prints, there are聽countless聽options to聽work聽with that鈥檒l keep your budget more flexible.

2. Think complementary, not matchy matchy.聽While your聽pieces should聽look good together, hanging coordinating聽items聽isn鈥檛 necessary to聽get a deluxe聽feel. 鈥淎n overall color scheme is an easy way to incorporate a variety of different pieces to accomplish an eclectic look,鈥 she says.

3. Invest in personal pieces.聽Sure you鈥檙e all about saving money, but this doesn鈥檛 mean a splurge-piece is unwarranted. Fischel-Bock聽recommends adding an investment item to make the entire arrangement feel more personal, even if the rest of聽the collage聽is more decorative. 鈥淎t the end of the day, you鈥檙e the one who will be living with the pieces, so you want to make sure you鈥檙e happy with the items displayed in your home,鈥澛爏he says.

4. Placement is everything.聽A carefully crafted arrangement聽is key to keeping聽things looking good.聽But rather than recruiting a helper and drilling (unnecessary) holes,聽Fischel-Bock聽advises聽using聽a handy tool like the Hutch app聽to lay everything out. 鈥淵ou can utilize our curated filters to get inspiration or take a photo of your space to create your custom gallery wall,鈥 she says.
