I think it’s probably safe to say that we’re taking more photos now than ever before.
The problem is that so many of those photos never actually see the light of day. We might share them on social media but other than that they sit on our phones and our hard-drives, not really being enjoyed or appreciated by anyone.
There are so many good reasons to print and display our photos though, and with so many options available now is a great time to make the most of all those photos we take.
If you’re still stuck for ideas and inspiration here are some fun ways that you can display your photos throughout your home.
In a child’s bedroom or playroom
If you’re going for a calm, neutral feel then framed photos are a great options for a child’s bedroom. You can put a few in simple frames and display them on a bookshelf, or even make a little gallery wall of photos of your family.
On the other hand, if you’re after a brighter and more striking look for the room then you could use one of your photos to create some custom wallpaper. You could then hang the wallpaper to create a really stunning feature wall.
This would be an amazing idea if you have a photo of your family at the beach or one of your other favourite outdoor spaces.
In the hallway
I love the idea of having a collection of family photos and holiday snaps on display in the hallway, it’s such a lovely thing to be greeted by when you come home.
My parents have had a noticeboard up in their hallway for as long as I can remember, with a real mix of photos pinned up on it. If I close my eyes I can still picture some of the photos that have been added to that board over the years.
A noticeboard like that could also be great for having a space to pin little reminders of things you need to grab as you head out the door in the morning!
Our take on the idea is this little quote picture with space to hang a couple of our favourite photos. What I really love about this idea is how easy it is to switch out the photos each time you get a new set printed.
In the kitchen
You can stick with the classics in the kitchen and display a load of photos by sticking them to your fridge with some brightly coloured magnets.
If you prefer a cleaner look then you can get some magnetic frames to display on the fridge instead, or even have your photos themselves made into magnets.
For an extra bit of fun you could get some photos printed on a mug, or a set of coasters, to brighten up your morning coffee.
In the lounge
The lounge is the perfect room in the house to display your family photos as art.
You could create a gallery wall with framed photos of different sizes and maybe a couple of framed quotes to break it up a bit.
Another great option is to have a few of your photos printed nice and big on canvas and then hang those on the wall. If canvases aren’t really your thing then there are all sorts of options available these days, including metal, wooden and acrylic prints so there should be something out there to suit your style.
How many of your photos are on display in your home? Do you have any other creative ideas for getting your photos off your computer and into your home?
