Do this before making a gallery wall. Hold piece of paper on back of frame and mark with Sharpie where to put the nail-then tape back on wall and nail right through the paper! Other photo wall displays too.
Not a fan of all open storage, but note the place for keys, leashes, papers, and a small mirror. Good way to ensure new space is used for day-to-day entry. Don't forget wall plug for charging electronics at counter- or eye- level.

Vancouver Interior Designers: How to Hang Art on a Staircase Wall
from the blog "First we went to Ikea for several sizes of Ribba frames. Then we're going to take out the paper inside first (which is basically the size of the frame) and tape them to the wall to make sure we are happy with the arrangement" - great idea!
Tired of guessing at the location when installing picture hangers on the wall? The problem can be solved by applying tape to the frame’s hanger, and then pushing a thumbtack through the tape as shown here. Perfect Placement. Next, position the frame and push the tack into the wall to get a precise hole for mounting your picture hanger. Remove the tape and the tack, and you’ll be able to hang the frame exactly where you wanted it.
