Posted on 14 July 2023

Displaying your art collection in your home is a great way to showcase your personal style and taste. A home gallery can not only beautify your living space with a variety of colours and patterns but also add a sense of depth and meaning to your collection. By setting up your personal gallery, you’ll have a space where you can proudly display your carefully curated selection of artwork in the comfort of your home.

Steps in Building Your Home Gallery

Step 1 — Narrow Down Your Favourite Artwork

An exciting way to start constructing your gallery is by picking out the art pieces you love the most and figuring out the colour scheme of the entire display so aesthetic cohesion is present. Some artists and art lovers prefer to prioritise their artwork according to sentimentality or what might be the most valuable pieces of art which were difficult to acquire.

Step 2 — Mix and Match Different Art Styles

Mixing and matching art styles can create a unique and visually exciting home gallery. You can combine different types of art, such as paintings, sculptures, and photographs, to add variety and interest. However, make sure to choose artwork that complements each other and fits within the overall theme and colour scheme of your gallery as well as your home’s existing aesthetic and layout.

Step 3 — Plan the Layout and Lighting

It is essential to plan the layout and placement of lighting fixtures for your home gallery in order to maximise the overall display. After considering the size and shape of the room and the type of artwork you want to display, it will give you an idea of whether you prefer a tight, unified look for the gallery or a more spaced out one. Ensure to have a focal point of attraction to create cohesion between the art pieces and the entire gallery for a dramatic effect.

You can use lighting to highlight specific artwork and give them a striking viewing effect. Additionally, adding a mirror to reflect natural light all around the room can make smaller rooms appear more spacious and enhance the appearance of the art pieces in your home gallery.

Step 4 — Rotate Your Collection

Rotating your collection is a great way to keep your home gallery fresh and exciting. You can further build your gallery by adding more pieces to the existing collection or you can switch out artwork on a seasonal basis or for special occasions to give your home gallery a whole new look and feel.
