Basic Principals of Creating a Photo Wall Display
The concept of a photo wall is simple: Just place your favorite pictures in frame
- Frames should hang at eye level (around or slightly above five feet) from the floor. Hang them a little bit higher if you have high ceilings (or a very tall family - LOL).
- Help the pictures come together by using similar picture styles (i.e. black and white or sepia), frames, or mat color. Don't be afraid to contrast too. For example, if you're going with all black and white photos, use frames of varying textures and sizes to add some pizzazz.
- Some interesting but simple arrangements include diamond or rectangular shapes. You might want to choose one that will be easy to add to until you’ve formed an overall shape that works for you.
- If you’re short on space, consider collage or multi-picture frames. With this type of frame, you're able to artfully display many photos in a small amount of space. Many options exist in this category and you can easily find both wall hanging and table top designs. Additionally, a great hanging kit can work wonders in helping to easily and efficiently complete your photo wall display!
