One more very popular idea today is a ledges gallery wall, it can be a perfect alternative to a usual one. Why? Because choosing ledges you do less harm to your walls (this is essential when you are renting), you needn’t draw schemes on the walls to hang them right and you can use them for storage and change the combos even every day if you need.
The most popular ledges are white and black ones because they easily fir almost any interior. There are ledges of different width and length, go to the nearest Home Depot or IKEA and you can fit them into any space, and if not – just saw the them. If you aren’t satisfied with two classic colors of ledges, try gilded, pink or any other you like. Attach them one above another as tall as you want, you can go down to the floor almost. Use a level to hang the ledges right and then the difficult part of the work is done and you need to make your photo collage on them.
Play with frames. Choose white, black or some contrasting ones, mix black and white together. But don’t forget that too bold frames can distract attention from the pics and artwork. Choose various sizes and styles of frames if you want, or go for the same size and color of frames for a unifying look. Place frames in various distances from each other to make a messy and relaxed look.
Now for the artwork and shots. Placing your family pics in these frames are the most popular idea, choose the best moments and the cutest shots and enjoy them. Keeping them black and white or going for bold colors is up to you. You may also include posters and artwork, canvases and pictures and even some souvenirs because ledges can easily hold them, so you can create almost an installation! The best thing about ledges is that you can change the look anytime you want and get a new collage – just place other pics and frames on the ledges.
