The simplest way to display photos is to create a family photo gallery wall.

You can put photos in a column grid with equal-sized frames for perfect symmetry.

Another option is to print photos in different sizes and arrange them randomly.

With grid galleries, you can display photos in the middle of the wall and leave the rest of the wall blank, or turn the entire wall into one big collection of family memories.

Frames on a Shelf

Putting frames on a single shelf is a modern photo display approach.

You can mix and match frame sizes, colors, and prints and put them one behind the other.

You can also combine photos with prints or art pieces for some versatility.

This idea works best for hallways, dining room walls, bedrooms, and narrow family room walls.

Consider adding a frame mat to give the photos a sleek look that matches the rest of the decor.

Photos Turned into Paintings

If you’re good at painting, choose a family photo and turn it into an artistic masterpiece.

You can also hire an artist that’ll copy the photo onto a canvas.

This way, you’ll have a unique piece of art hanging on the wall, and a family memory to cherish forever.

You can also use online tools and apps to turn regular images into paintings in a few clicks.

Then, simply print them in a larger size, frame them, and hang them on the wall.

Photo Mural

Murals aren’t reserved just for street walls and buildings.

You can have one in your home and turn into a masterpiece wallpaper.

Choose a good quality family photo and have it printed to fit the size of your entire wall.

This is a great way to display a happy family photo and make it a focal point of a room.

Consider printing the photo in black and white to fit the rest of your decor, or choose a color palette to liven things up.
