Hanging a Time Line Grouping:

Utilizing a time line style of picture hanging is an easy solution. You know the ages of your family members and the years the photo’s were taken, now all you have to do is decide how far back you wish to start. For this style of picture hanging use a large central photograph and then group the pictures around it. Selecting pictures with similar locations, settings and landscapes ,arranged progressively through the years, showcases your personal time line.

Singular Family Focus:

Everyone has one picture of the family that captures a moment. This should be the centerpiece of the grouping. If it’s not enlarged already have it done and mounted in a significant picture frame or leave it frameless. Both styles work and can be hung with most picture hangers. Once you’ve determined which wall will be used hang the large picture first and begin adding the additional picture frames of the family together, or individual photo’s, working your way out from the center. As you hang your pictures the frames should be getting progressively smaller to keep the focus on the main image. The simplest and fastest way to hang a group of pictures such as this is with
adjustable picture hangers. Using an adjustable hook such as the Picture Perfect Hanger gives you the flexibility to adjust the picture Left Right, Up and Down a full 2-inches after it’s been mounted to the wall. Each frame will be perfectly spaced and your grouping will have the uniform, clean look you’re looking for.

Family Themed Wall:

Group your pictures by theme, frame and/or color keeping similar family members together. As an example; if you have a great shot of Mom rowing a boat hang complimentary pictures of other family members doing activities in the water. This type of themed wall is open to just about any idea including hobbies, vacation homes, holidays, etc.

When it comes to hanging pictures on a wall in a group remember…it’s your family, your home and your decision what looks best. And most important, don’t spend all day doing it. You need to be ready for your next picture!
