Create a poster wall with Brainchild posters


In many homes, the walls are adorned with a composition of posters, which together form a poster wall. A beautiful poster wall decorates most homes and adds charm and personality to the room it hangs in.
With a poster wall in your living room, bedroom or a third place in your home, your personal style can express itself through the composition of the posters.

Once you start combining our different posters and sizes, it will be almost impossible to end up with an poster wall similar to a poster wall in another home. Our posters are available in 4 different sizes and many different colors. The combinations of posters, number of posters and sizes on the posters are virtually endless. On this page we tell you how to design your own poster wall. You can also print out our subject guide and use it as a tool to build your own poster wall.

This poster wall consists of 4 posters in 50×70 cm. and 2 posters in 30×40 cm. You can buy the poster wall here. The posters are framed in brass-colored frames.

How big does my wall have to be to make a poster wall with posters?


Even if you don’t have a big wall to hang posters on, you can easily make a poster wall. You decide what size posters and how many posters your picture wall should consist of.

A small poster wall
If you don’t have much wall space to hang pictures on in your home, but still want to make a picture wall, it can easily be done. We recommend you to choose a preponderance of posters in 30×40 cm. in combination with size A5 posters.

A normal poster wall
If you have a relatively normal sized wall to hang posters on, you have ample opportunity to make a complete and beautiful poster wall. To create a poster wall with dynamics, we recommend you to combine the posters in different sizes.

If necessary, hang a poster in 70×100 cm. in the center of the poster wall and let it surround itself with posters in 50×70 and 30×40 cm.

You can also combine our posters in sizes 50×70 and 30×40 cm. and leave the posters in size 50×70 cm. be the predominant poster size of your poster wall.

A large picture wall
If you have a very large wall to hang posters on in your home, we definitely recommend you to leave our posters in 70×100 cm. dominate the poster wall of your home. To give life and dynamism to the image wall, we recommend you to combine the large posters with a size of 50×70 cm. You can also combine the posters in 70×100 and 50×70 cm. with our posters in size 30×40 cm.

This poster wall consists of 3 posters in 50×70 cm. and 2 posters in 30×40 cm. You can buy the poster wall here. The posters are framed in brass-colored frames.

Choose posters for your poster wall


Depending on the colors of posters you choose for your walls, you can achieve a myriad of different expressions for your poster wall and in the room you hang the poster wall. To achieve a harmonious décor in the home, someone chooses to use posters in the same gamut as the colors of their home. Others choose to change the colours of the posters according to season – for example, you can use The Artichoke with a red background in winter and replace it with The Artichoke with a yellow background in the spring.

A timeless and modern expression for your poster wall
Do you want a stylish expression for your poster wall? Then you can choose to combine our posters with a black background, together with our posters with a white background. A combination of our black and white posters can be: The Egg, The Swan and The Snowdrop with a black background, in combination with The Artichoke, The Ant and Papa Bear with a white background. For a timeless expression, we recommend you to frame the posters in our brass-colored metal poster frames.

A poster wall with a spring fresh expression
Choose our posters in pastel colors if you want to decorate your home with soft colors. You can combine the posters in the pastel colours together with our posters with a sand-colored background. Our posters with a sand-colored background move in the same soft shades as our posters with pastel colors. To keep your poster wall in a delicate shade of colour, we recommend you to frame your posters in our bright wood poster frames.

A contrasting poster wall
For a contrasting poster wall, combine the posters in our different shades of colour. If necessary, use The Swan with a petroleum blue background, The Egg with a yellow background and The Artichoke with a red background, in combination with our posters with a black and sand-colored background.

Poster frames for your poster wall


The choice of poster frames for the picture wall in your home can have a great impact on what expression the wall conveys. Someone chooses the colors of the poster frames based on what color wood their other interiors in the home are. Others choose the colors of the poster frames based on which color they think best suits the colors of the posters they should have hanging on the poster wall.

There is no final decision on what kind of poster frame to choose for your picture wall. It’s about your personal preferences for what you think is nice and fits the walls of your home.

At Brainchild you can buy good quality poster frames. If you buy the poster frames along with the posters, we’ll frame the posters for you. Our wooden poster frames are available in 3 different colours – light wood, dark wood and in black painted wood.

In addition, we also offer brass-colored poster frames in metal – also called gold-colored aluminum. This frame type is classic and looks great for all our poster motifs.

Hang up your poster wall

It can be a challenge to hang the posters correctly on the wall, so they end up forming the poster wall you have imagined before you get started. Therefore, it is important to have the right approach to the project.

Hang the pictures with a certain distance
To make an elegant and airy poster wall, be sure to hang the images with a certain distance from each other. You may want to hang the pictures at a distance of 7-12 cm. from the edge of one poster frame, to the edge of the poster frame next door.

Composition
If the composition is not good, a poster wall may look strange. If, on the other hand, you design a good composition, the picture wall can help complete your interior design. Here are some of the important factors to keep in mind when designing your poster wall:

  • The combination of image sizes.
  • The location of the image sizes.
  • The combination of colors.

A good way to make a good composition is to design your poster wall on the floor before hanging the posters on the wall.

Use the floor to design your poster wall

Although the holes can be hidden behind a poster frame, it is a pity to drill wrong holes in your walls. Therefore, we recommend you to plan what your poster wall should look like before hanging up the posters. An easy way to design your poster wall is to put the posters on your floor. In this way, you can move around the different posters and design the perfect combination of the posters, without drilling holes.

Once you have designed a combination of the posters that you think is nice, you can take a picture of the composition and design a new composition. If necessary, repeat the process several times – then look through the pictures and decide which composition you think is nicest for your wall.

Hang the posters on the wall

Once you’ve figured out what your poster wall should look like, you can cut some paper of the corresponding sizes for the posters. Hang the paper on the wall with some tape to recreate the composition of the posters that you have already designed on the floor.

Then you measure on the back of the poster frames where the screws should sit. Mark on the paper on the wall and screw all the screws in the wall. Then remove the paper and hang the poster frames on the screws. Vupti! Now you have your perfect poster wall hanging in your home.

3 posters in a row

One of the most popular ways to hang our posters is to hang 3 posters in a row. A combination of 3 of our posters fits perfectly hanging on the wall of the living room above the sofa, on a wall for a longer hallway or hanging on the wall above the bed in the bedroom. Should you get tired of having 3 posters hanging in a row after some time, you can easily separate them and hang two posters on the wall in one room and one poster on the wall of another room. A purchase of 3 posters is a safe choice, which provides many different options for decorating the walls of your home.

The 3 posters are available in sizes 30Ă—40, 50Ă—70 and 70Ă—100 cm.
