Giving Your Favourite Photos The Place They Deserve In The Home

Whether you’re something of a photographer, yourself, or you simply want to take some of your favourite shared memories and photos and give them a little more attention, your home can be the perfect place to put them on display. It’s one of the best ways to incorporate a bit more of your personality and history into your décor, and here are a few ways that you can do it.

Consider the classic grid

This is a particularly good tip if you have a lot of photos that you want to put up. The grid placement allows you to take up an entire surface without things getting too messy. With a grid, there are no real rules on how to display them. However, it can make it look a lot nicer if you choose photos that have some kind of colour matching aspect to them. For instance, greyscale photos work best when paired with other greyscale photos rather than more colourful options.

Use them within a vignette

If you have one photo that has particular meaning to you and you don’t want to clutter it with other imagery that detracts from it, then there are some great ways to turn it into a focal point. For instance, you can make it the key piece of a decor vignette placed somewhere in the room, whether it be a central table, on the mantlepiece, on your bedside, or otherwise. Surrounding it with other decorative items can make sure the photo doesn’t look bare or lonely, but the fact that they aren’t more photos will make sure that it gets all the attention.

Centre them in a wall gallery

You may have a room that has plenty of blank wall space, or is currently hosting art of photos that you have gotten a little sick of. One of the easiest and best ways to give your favourite snaps the attention they deserve is to make use of that space, using custom picture mounts that make it easy to turn them into the centrepiece of a wall gallery. For smaller walls, clustering a few photos closer together can create a great focal point, while you might want to space them out more evenly where you have a lot of wall space.

Consider going digital with it

If you have a huge number of photos and you want to make sure that you’re able to enjoy your gallery at will, then you might find out that there is no such thing as enough space to display everything that you want to see. To that end, a digital photo frame might be more suitable for your needs. These come in all shapes and sizes, but the more affordable ones tend to be smaller, meaning they might not work as well as wall pieces, but can be great for office desks and bedsides.

There are plenty of ways to incorporate your favourite photos throughout the home, and the above tips are just a few examples. Hopefully, they have inspired a few display ideas of your own, as well.
