5 Ways to Display your Photos in your Home

ways to display photos at home

Folio boxes with fine art prints are available for purchase within your gallery shop.

You’ve taken your family photos! YAY! You can check that off the list! But now what? What are the ways to display photos at home? Especially since you worked so hard for those beautiful family photos! The worst-case scenario is they end up shoved in a drawer for no one to appreciate. We are definitely not going to let that happen. Especially because there are so many easy ways to find that perfect spot in your home and display your new family photos. Here are 5 ways that I love to display photos in my home:

Big fan! You know that empty spot on your wall? Yep, that’s the one I’m talking about. Let’s hang some pictures there! This can be done on a wall in any room in your house or it can be done down a hallway. It’s time to fill the empty space and now you’ve got beautiful family pictures to do it.

Photo Ledges

If you’re not willing to commit to nailing frames into the wall, then a photo ledge is your next best option. The beauty of having little ledges means that you can layer your photos, swap around frames and even put other seasonal decorations around. This definitely gives more flexibility to your photo display.

Metal Prints/Wood Prints/Canvas

Feeling adventurous? These unusual material prints can be a unique way to display your sweet family photos. I have a few metal prints in my home and I think it adds so much to the photo. These types of prints are a great way to play around with your photos and experiment a little bit.

Oversized Prints

These are so cool! Engineering prints can show off your pictures in a big and bold way without breaking the budget. Normally these pictures come in black and white, so they’re classy and fun. These prints are so versatile, you can use them on your gallery wall or on photo ledges or even just hanging by themselves. 

Folio Box

I have a folio box for each of my kids and I love that they are such a special way to have easy access to all of my printed photos. These little boxes come in all different shapes, sizes and materials and keep loose prints accessible and pristine. If you have too many good ones to pick or just love looking through your photos at any point and sharing them with others, this is for you! You can also use it as an easy way to swap photos out of frames from your photo ledge. 

Don’t let your hard work and beautiful photos go to waste! Putting those prints around your house is the easiest step in the process and is going to make you love them even more. If you need more ideas, check out this Pinterest board! Once your photos are up, send me a picture! I’d love to see how you chose to display your photos.
