3 Photowall Ideas
Printing photos is so important in the digital age. How many of us have lost photos because of a computer crashing? And don’t just print those photos, but display them too! Here are three photowall ideas from my own home.
1. Hang unframed mounted photos on the wall.
Don’t be afraid to Go Big with your photos. The 8×10’s of our childhood are neither “standard” nor large photos these days! Big photos make a big impression.
To give you a bit of perspective on size, look at Tilly standing next to our photowall:
Here is a close-up of the photos so you can see how they look on the styrene. I like clean, uncluttered lines which is why I chose to hang unframed photos on my wall. This images are mounted for durability and are coated with UV protection.
2. Buy matching for an eye-catching photowall. These are 12×12 frames with a simple black border.
This photowall was designed to be fun! No formal portraits allowed here. I wanted somewhere to display some silly photos that I loved. The 12×12 frames allow me to easily and inexpensively switch out these photos. The photos that come off the wall go directly into our family scrapbooks.
3. Hang favorite photos on a string, attached with small office clips.
I was inspired to start this photowall after attending a local photography conference where we each brought an image to display. I decided to have my own rotating photo display and enjoy some of my favorite photos.
Here is the view from our formal wall looking toward my very casual photo wall.
I hope you are inspired to hang some of your own photos up on the wall. If you have a photo, feel free to post a link in the comments. I’d love to take a look!
