Today I want to share a few tips that I have learned about how to display photos in my home.
1. Small prints will make more of an impact in a larger frame with a mat.
2. When choosing a small print for display such as a 5×7 or 8×10, a simple close up image of your subject can have more impact than a scene with a lot of detail and distractions.
3. Detailed scenes are a great option for a wall print because you can appreciate and really observe the complexity of the image at the large size.
4. When deciding on a size for wall art, try taping squares or rectangles of wrapping paper on the wall or over the couch where you intend your piece to go. This can help you decide on the best size to order for your wall art.
Remember you do not need to have a large gallery wall to use your photos to make an impact in your home.
