Updating Your Family Portraits? 6 Ways To Display Them in Your Home

Updating Your Family Portraits

Decoration and displays are what give the main sense to guests of what your family is like when they enter your home. This especially includes which family portraits are chosen and how they are displayed. When you think of portrait displays, you may think of a big wall space taken up solely by picture frames. However, a gallery wall is not the only way to display family portraits. Below are four different ways you can display family portraits.

One Large Photo

A nice way to show off a beloved family portrait is to get it printed in a bigger size to display your favorite image from the photoshoot. These days, it is getting easier to print these big sizes and to get them to look elegant without the hassle that used to be necessary. Just by simply filtering a photo to black and white from your phone, it can look like it was professionally taken.

You might also want to take this opportunity to display a photo that doesn’t translate as well in a smaller size, such as a portrait of your entire family or extended family together. This can be a great way to feel closer to your family in your day-to-day life, even when you can’t physically be together.

Metal Prints

Metal prints are another beautiful and unique way to display portraits. Photos are printed on 1/16" aluminum sheets and can be mounted using a metal easel, float mount, or stand-outs. There are a variety of reasons you may want to use a metal print. Metal prints have many benefits, including vibrant colors and glossy finishes. They also provide high durability, leading to less fading and a longer lifespan without any additional surface protection. If you live in a rough-and-tumble household or simply want long-lasting results, metal printing may be a good option for you.

Color-Coordinated Portraits

One creative and artistic way to display family portraits is by color coordinating them. This could be done by coordinating the frames or the hues in the photos themselves. You could choose frames that match the colors of your furniture or ones that contrast against the wall color. White and black can be great choices to provide contrast, depending on the color of the room. Frames made of wood or metal and even frameless canvas prints can add a layer of texture to your design. Matching the frames or photos themselves to the rest of your interior design can help to create a cohesive and sophisticated look.

Desk Photo Display

Yet another way to display family portraits is to display them on top of a desk. This is a neat and caring way to display photos for a variety of reasons. Many of those who work in places such as an office or a school will be seen with this display. As well as some school students who have a desk for doing schoolwork. This idea can also be identified with a dresser. Many people, also, display their family portraits on a dresser in their rooms or on a bookcase in a living room.

Photo Albums

It’s possible that you have so many photos that it feels impossible to decide on just a few. In this case, you might want to consider putting together a photo album. Find a photo album that has space for dates and personal notes so that you can save your best memories for years to come. A family photo album like this can be used as a coffee table book for easy access to anyone who wants to see it.

Hanging Prints

For a more playful and youthful look, you may want to consider hanging a string to clip small prints too. This method also makes it easy to switch out which photos are displayed according to the season or the design and mood of the room. It can be a great opportunity to not only display the more professional prints, but fun and casual photos as well that can act as an interesting conversation starter.

In conclusion, there are many ways to display family portraits. Ranging from shapes and sizes to colors and placements, the results vary widely depending on your design style and preferences. No matter the kind of display you choose to go with for your home, this will always be one of the decor aspects that represents your family the most. Hopefully, these ideas will point you in the right direction to displaying your photos.
