100+ Useful Ideas and Layouts to Create a Photo Wall Display

Creating a photo wall display may sound easy and simple but actually doing it may be a daunting and an overwhelming experience. It may look easy as a thought where you just place your favorite pictures in frames of different sizes and shapes and hang them in a mosaic pattern. But, there are some guidelines or rules that you may follow to make your wall look especially beautiful.

So, here are the guidelines:

  1. There are no set rules, you are free to follow your heart and instinct.
  2. If you are using frames to create a photo wall display, make sure that are placed at eye-level. You may hand them a little higher in case you have high ceilings. Ideally, you should hang them slightly above five feet from the ground level.
  3. Help the display come together by using similar photo styles i.e. black-and-white or sepia), frames, or mat color. but, as said in guideline number 1 there are no set rules. Don’t be afraid to contrast.
  4. If you’re short on space, consider creating a photo wall collage or multi-picture frames. With this type of frame, you’re able to artfully display many photos in a small amount of space.

How do you Start Creating the Photo Wall of Your Dreams?

Start with what kind of look you want, for example, a sleek and clean look, a heavy & loaded look with lots and lots of photos or an artistic look with a mix of artsy frames in varied sizes. etc. The second most important thing is to select photos that you want to display on your photo wall. It might help to start out with more than you need and then narrow down based on space, mood, or fit. Before you start drilling in the nails, lay your frames on the floor and play with different arrangements to see how they’d look. It is advisable to start from the center and then expand outwards. Once you finalize the photo wall layout and the photo arrangements, transfer it frame by frame to the wall.

Another way to find out a photo arrangement which is eye-pleasing is to use paper outlines or washi tape layout to outline pieces that you want to hang. It will help you visualize alternative arrangements and decide how you want to proceed. Remember, multiple frames look best when arranged in a diamond, rectangular, or square shape. Also, they should be spaced relatively tightly—1-2 inches apart. A looser grouping can work for a more casual display. For stairway displays, make sure you follow the upward angle of the steps. This can be made easier by using string and pushpins or a laser level.
