How to Display Family Photos

One of the best and easiest ways to personalize a home is by displaying family photos. However, displaying them in the wrong way can distract from the overall design of a room. Read on to see how we addressed 3 common decorating dilemmas and how to solve them!


Dilemma: Tons of photos scattered all around a room

Solution: Gather all the family photos displayed throughout the room and group them into one area. This area can be either a gallery wall, bookshelves, or photo ledges. This will create one big focal point instead of a bunch of random focal points throughout the room, which can tend to look chaotic and feel overwhelming. Family photos are important, but they also shouldn't be overpowering an entire room. So give your photos their own designated area to allow them to shine!

Dilemma: Picture frames are too small and mismatched

Solution: The importance a photo ultimately has in a room really depends on how well it is framed and displayed. Take those frames that are too small and replace them with larger ones. If you have multiple photos throughout the room, unify them by using the same frame for all. This will help your photos look more important. Also, try using large mats to emphasize photos!

Dilemma: Multiple photos displayed on every wall and surface

Solution: Try not to have more than 2 areas of a room that display family photos. Example: if you have a large gallery wall of photos, you can still display one or two small family photos in another spot in the room (like a nightstand, end table, console table). The key is to be very selective about where you display photos so make sure you space the 2 areas out in a room so the photos don't overpower each other.
