OK…so now you have all these amazing photos of your family and you aren’t sure what to do with them. Here are 5 amazing ways to display your images on your walls!
Displaying your favorite images on your walls is a great way to personalize your home decor and showcase your personal style. From traditional frames to unique and modern displays, there are many creative ways to display your images on your walls. Here are six ideas to get you thinking of how to display your images on your walls, using a variety of my favorite products:
1. Wood Prints
This is a unique and fun way to display your images on your wall – having them printed directly onto a piece of wood! The natural grain and texture of the wood adds an extra layer of depth and character to the image. You can hang the wood print directly on your wall, or prop it up on a shelf or ledge for a more casual look.
2. Metal Prints
Having your photo printed directly onto a sheet of metal will give a sleek and modern look when you display your images on your walls. The metal gives the image a glossy and reflective finish, and the durability of the material ensures that your image will last for years to come. On the back of the metal print is a foam block that makes it easy to hang and gives it a floating look on your wall.
3. Gallery Boards
A simple and inexpensive way to display your images on your walls is with gallery boards. They are printed on fine art paper with an extra smooth surface, and mounted to 3mm styrene board for a durable and long-lasting print.
The Gallery board is wonderful for displaying on their own or in a custom frame. I love to display mine with an easel on a side table or nightstand…a great gift too!!
Frame it up – a classic way to display your images on your walls. Choose a set of frames in a consistent style and color, and fill them with your favorite photos. You can arrange the frames in a grid pattern for a clean and modern look, or create a more eclectic gallery wall by mixing and matching different frame styles and sizes.
You can also use frames as a versatile display option that can be easily updated and changed as your image collection grows.
Last, but not least, make a calendar with a new image each month. With smooth gradations, true-to-life colors, and superior clarity these calendars will make your day any time of the year. Calendars are available in a variety of sizes and come ready to display.
Some non-wall options are a metal ornament that can be out all year round (my grandma put hers on a window suction hook) or my favorite album to put on your coffee table. What kid (or grandparent) doesn’t love looking at photos of themselves and loved ones!!
Final thought on this! Something I love to mix frames, wood prints, kid art and other favorite pieces in a gallery wall. You can stick to a cohesive color scheme or mix and match different colors and textures for a more eclectic look. A gallery wall is a great way to showcase a mix of family photos, artwork, and other favorite images.
