Creative ways to display your photos

If your family photos are slowly piling up, here are creative ways to display and show them off.

Fill up an empty space behind a sofa with a trio of oversized family photos.

Mounting your favourite photographs up the side of a staircase allows for plenty of space if you need to mount a lot of photos. Keep it simple and use a collection of like-styled frames in varied sizes, or mix it up with different frames to create an interesting collage and an eye-catching feature.

passage or hallway that lacks interest is the perfect place for a collection of your favourite photographs. If there isn't any natural light in the space, install wall-mounted downlights or ceiling spotlights to ensure photos are well-lit.

Having photos block mounted means that you can mount them almost anywhere. This is a lightweight option for mounting your family photographs and you can use heavy-duty mounting tape as an alternative to picture hooks or nails.

It's time to put on your creative thinking cap and decide where you want to display those family photographs.

Fill up an empty space behind a sofa with a trio of oversized family photos. Black and white photos mirror the colours used in the room and provide a wonderful display without overpowering the room.

If wall space is limited there's nothing wrong with displaying some of your family photographs in your collection of favourite paintings for a wall gallery. Use newspaper and prestik to work out the arrangement for your collection beforehand to ensure that the final result looks good.

Welcome guests to your home with a collection of photographs displayed in an entrance or entry hall. Simple white frames and white photo mats are a wonderful way to display black and white or sepia-toned vintage photos.

If you prefer something with a bit more impact, add a black frame to your black and white photographs.

Floating shelves make for an eye-catching display of family photographs and you don't have to hammer in hundreds of picture hooks or nails. You can also use floating shelves for a collection of large and small photos.

A grouping of block mounted family photos is an inexpensive way to bring together a collection.

If you prefer something with a bit more impact, add a black frame to your black and white photographs.

If you are renting a home and the landlord won't let you hammer or drill into walls, use a large photo frame to display your collection of favourite photos. You can re-scan family photos to print them out in the same size, or vary the size of the images to create a wonderful collage.

Or what about using a strip of reclaimed wood to create a one-of-a-kind display for your favourite photos?

Amass together all your favourite Polaroid or Instagram snaps and display these on a feature wall using prestik.

So it's time to put on your creative thinking cap and decide where you want to display those family photographs.
