People often ask, “how much space should I leave between my frames?” Generally speaking the number of inches between your frames is less important than keeping a consistent distance between all the frames in your gallery.
We’ve found that 2 inches works well in most situations, but if your frames are larger or thicker, then a larger gap may work better, up to 6 inches. To get a sense of what will work for you, start by laying out your frames on the floor and adjust the spacing until you think it looks good.
So how do you ensure that the spacing is consistent as you’re hanging your gallery? There are a few ways of doing so, including using equal sized pieces of painters tape, but we have made it even easier with the development of our SpacingStrips™.
The reusable SpacingStrips are a fast and easy way to make spacing between your items consistent. They have a low tack adhesive so they will stick to the wall and easily peel off without leaving any residue. You can use a single strip in the middle of the frame or one at the top and one at the bottom of the edge of the frame for a more accurate guide.
Want a larger space between items? Use multiple strips together. Once you are done, place them back onto the wax paper and they’re ready for your next gallery wall.
SpacingStrips are available in our DécoEssentials™, or as part of our picture hanging kits and these bundles: Hang & Level with Kit, Decorator’s Choice and Canvas Hanging. Get the tools you need; save money and time.
