How to Build Your Own Art Wall in Five Steps

Looking to jazz up your living or workspace?  Well, why not dive into the world of art walls with posters?

An art wall is basically a collection of posters all hanging out together on your wall, creating a display that’s as unique as you are. And trust me, it's not just about making things look good – it's also a way to show off your style and what you’re into.

Ready for some tips on how to create your own art wall with posters? Here goes: 

  • Get a Theme Going: First things first, before you start picking out posters, think about a theme. It could be a bunch of colours you love, a favourite artist, a certain type of art, or a collection of special memories. You can also check out Instagram, Pinterest, or interior design blogs for inspiration. Having a theme in mind helps you pick posters that’ll vibe together and make your wall pop.

  • Measure Up: Now, it’s time to grab a tape measure and size up your wall. Figure out how much space you’ve got to play with. This will help you decide how big your posters can be and how many you can fit.

    • Pick Your Favourites: Once you’ve got your theme and wall size sorted, get
      to picking the posters you like. Mix things up with different sizes and frames to give your art wall some personality.

    • Time to Get Artsy: Alright, now comes the fun part – arranging your posters on the wall. Start by sticking the biggest one somewhere in the middle. Then work your way out from there, adding the smaller ones around it. You’re basically creating a visual masterpiece! If starting on the wall is too scary, you can always lay out the posters on the floor and arrange them from there before committing to the art wall.

    • Hang Time: When it comes to hanging up your posters, you’ve got a few options. Thumbtacks and adhesive strips are a budget friendly solution and often good for your walls, or you can always get them in some cool frames as well. Just remember to roughly space the posters evenly for that totally put-together look.

    So there you have it – the lowdown on creating your very own art wall with posters. It’s a super creative way to make your space your own. Stick to these tips, and you’ll be kicking back and enjoying your art wall in no time!
