Where And How To Display Family Portraits
Family portraits always add charm to a space and make it feel more intimate and inviting, whether you display them at home or in your office. But there’s more to that than framing the photos and mounting them on the wall or placing them on a desk. You can’t just display them anywhere. They have to complement their surroundings and to harmoniously communicate with the rest of the room’s décor.
The living room is one of the most places where people choose to display their family portraits. Here, you can either create a gallery wall and dedicate it entirely to this purpose or combine the framed photos with the rest of the accessories and furnishings. For example, a nice place for them would be on the wall behind the sofa or over the fireplace.
You can also choose to greet your guests with a beautiful wall of family portraits. Display them on the wall opposite to the front door so those entering can see them. This will make everyone feel welcomed and your home will become more inviting.
Another great place for hanging family photos is the staircase wall. As you go up or come down the stairs you can admire them all. And this also a nice way to dress up a wall that usually remains empty.
The hallway can also be a nice location for framed portraits. You can turn the space into a beautiful gallery and it will seem less boring and austere. This is a particularly nice idea in the case of long and narrow hallways.
The dining area can also be a nice option. You can choose to display family portraits instead of abstract artwork to make your guests and family members feel more cozy and comfortable. By personalizing this space you bring everyone closer.
