Stylish Family Photo Wall Display Ideas

March 24, 2021

Family pictures are one of the best ways to make a house feel like home. These fresh family photo wall ideas are perfect for displaying family photos in a stylish and modern way!


Looking for a fresh way to display your photos? I am always on the hunt for new family photo wall ideas. The upstairs gallery wall we had in our old house was one of my favorite projects. It made me SO happy every time I walked up my stairs and saw it! I have always tried to find creative ways to display our family photos because they are important to us and we love seeing them. Before the colorful gallery, I had my DIY canvases up in my hall and they had so much fun color and texture (and are so simple to make). In our family room we used ledges to display similarly framed photos. But my colorful family photo wall is my favorite way so far! 

Trying to figure out the best way to display your family photos can be tricky. While looking for ideas for the new house, I have found some VERY cool family photo wall ideas that I had to share. These family photo wall ideas are some of my own favorites!
