Hang Your Photos In The Hallway
The hallway may be the first thing that a guest sees when she enters the home. Decorating a hallway allows your home the chance to make a first impression the minute a guest walks in. A hallway is ideal for photo gallery walls. You can choose a theme for your grouping that best expresses your personality and lifestyle. Hallways are prime locations for groupings of family photos, where memories come alive with images of vacations, weddings, birthdays, summer camping trips, school photos, holiday celebrations and ordinary moments that a quick snapshot ensures will never be forgotten. Making all black-and-white copies adds sophistication and unity to the display. While personal preference always factors highly in design choices, keep the following tips in mind when deciding on the best arrangement for a hallway photo display.
Pictures of equal size look best when aligned horizontally side-by-side unless they are being hung on a narrow hallway wall, in which case a vertical alignment is more suitable. If you have frames of varying size, but would still like to display them in a row, hang them in parallel rows, aligning the tops of the frames in the bottom row and aligning the bottoms of the frames in the top row.
