If you’re living in an apartment, chances are you don’t have a lot of space. On top of that, it’s doubtful that you have a lot of wall space. With that in mind, it’s important to maximize what space you have when it comes to home decorating. We all love to display photos. Wedding photos in particular serve as a daily reminder of one of the happiest day of our lives. Here are a few tips and tricks to display the pictures from your big day in your small apartment.
Display small frames on bookshelves
Bookcases can definitely be used for more than just books. In a small apartment, a bookcase is often one of the few pieces of furniture in the space. With that in mind, the bookcase can be a key part of your decor. Putting a carefully placed frame on a shelf can add a personal touch. And, next time you’re searching for what book you want to dive into next, you’ll get a chance to go down memory lane. That’s a win-win.
Hang pictures somewhere unexpected
According to a recent survey from the custom framing company Framebridge, most couple hang their wedding photos in either their bedroom or the formal living room. Those are always great options and being traditional is never a bad thing. However, sometimes you might run out of space (or maybe you never had it). So, why not put it somewhere unexpected? Somewhere like the kitchen or the bathroom adds something unique and different.
Use a mini gallery for small spaces
If you don’t have space for a full gallery wall, maybe you need a mini wall. If you have a narrow space, you could stack your pictures vertically to display them. If you have room for four or five pictures, it allows for options when decorating. You could put your favorite pictures or put some of your favorites that go in chronological order. Or you could put pictures that best represent different moments of your wedding day. There are many options to fit your style.
Lean into it
Sure, you might run out of wall space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stop using frames and framed pictures. Leaning frames up against something to display them is always an option. This could be on a desk, a nightstand, or even the floor. Lean into it and think about what you could lean pictures against.
Pictures are important and act as tangible ways to remember specific moments in time. Wedding photos in particular are special and most people want to display them in their home. But if you live in an apartment or a small space, it can be hard to find space for everything. Think about using a few clever ways to display your wedding photos and maximize your space.
