Once you have been starring at one corner of your home, it is bound to start bothering you. In this lockdown, this starring has bothered me a lot, and I am sure must have been the same case with you folks too.

Maybe you're struggling with storage space, organization, or just a somewhat lackluster apartment design that needs upgrading. Or maybe that blank wall staring back at you is begging for the gallery wall you've been saying you were going to put up forever. Try your hand at some of our favorite, easy DIYs to give your space a fresh upgrade.
So let's get started


Frame a Wall

How could be there no wall of frames, narrating a story behind the scenes! There has to be some space dedicated to the frozen memories that you can cherish anytime. 

Travel Through a Wall 

Are you a traveler who has collected many travel keepsakes through the years? Don’t let them stockpile and gather dust in the corner, bring them out to chic up your wall! You can create a feature wall with your favorite travel photos, posters, or even maps. You can also install a floating shelf for keepsakes that can’t be hung, like beautiful ceramics, figurines, or tableware.

Create Colorful Mosaic

Create a striking mosaic photo wall idea by sticking your colorful square prints to a colored paper/paperboard. Yes, it’s that easy!

Its Fairy Affair 

Who doesn't love fairy lights and their warm cozy effect in your room. They are inexpensive yet look royal. Simply clip Retro prints or square prints to the strings, and you’ll have a dazzling picture wall ideas in less than 30 minutes.


Grid is the New Love

Either hang it or keep it stationary on your study table or wherever you can feel the vibes. Clip you photos and prop it at your cozy corner.

Split like Germans

Choose 1 of your favorite photos and split it into 2 or 3 parts (you can split it using a photo split app, or Adobe Photoshop). Print the split photos and hang them together on your living room wall.


It is Rusty

Who knew that old window panes can be used as a display for a photo wall? All you need to do is to get the measurements right and fit your photos onto the panes. Old, battered window panes will create a rustic effect, but if you want a cleaner look, you can repaint it.


The Timeline Wall 

Here’s another fun photo wall idea. If you want your photos to tell a story, a wall timeline is the right way to go. Collect photos from various eras during your life and place them within the right chronological order along your wall.

If you are a Minimalist

If you favor elegant and minimalist decor, this idea is for you. You don’t need a lot of photos, just pick your 2 or 3 favorite portraits of yours, print them big and hang them on the wall. You can use either framed photos or canvas prints if you want a different style.


Ombre is Forever

Take your love of colorful displays to another level by creating this Ombre photo decoration ideas. Use a few colors to make a smooth gradation, from the pale to the most vibrant colors. You can find budget frames that come at a cheap price, or you can also do it without for a more affordable option.


Old Cascading is Gold

Align your photo frames or posters along the wall down your staircase. These wall hanging pictures are guaranteed to create an interesting viewing experience every single time. There’s something about a stairway that allows you to be more abstract with your photos, so feel free to experiment with various types of wall hanging posters, canvas prints, and wall photo frames ideas. Use them as hanging images.

Cocktail Wall

Mixing is fun. Use taping, frames, hanging or fairy lights at one place. Make a subtle yet different combination at one wall so that your photo decoration shouldn’t look uniform. Mix any photo prints with framed images, and maybe little props or keepsakes that mean a lot to you.


Retro Wall

Retro is never old-fashioned, rather Retro prints are making their way back to glory. I often used such pictures for scrapbooks and journals, but they can also make a good decor statement when you use them to make a Retro wall. It’s easy, fun, and it doesn’t cost you a fortune. Just print your favorite size and shape to fall in love all over again.


Feed Your Wall

For Instagrammers who create beautiful imagery and inspiring galleries, this one is perfect for you. If you like how your feed looks on your tiny screen, imagine looking and admiring it right in front of you, in your own house.

To make this, you can go with a simple way by sticking your photo prints directly on the wall, or add a little something to make it more stylish, for example, thremocol cut and colored in shapes and sizes of your photos or something that can create an embossing look.

Canvas Banner on your Wall

Stylish homemade customize canvas banners are trendy nowadays. All you need is a dowel, canvas fabric, leather scraps for the letters, and a glue gun to stick them to the canvas. No sewing is required! And your wall is all dapper.
