Where To Hang Photo Tiles

When deciding where you want to hang your photo tiles, it’s best to pick out an open section of the wall to display any personalized wall art. Look for a spot that’s spacious enough to comfortably accommodate the number of photo tiles you plan to hang. To draw as many eyes to your photos as possible, consider mounting them in areas where your guests’ eyes are most likely to settle. Find inspiration below to turn your empty walls into statement-making elements of your space.

Inside The Entry Hallway

If you are aiming for an inspiring wall, mix a variety of artwork representing a range of media, from photographs to drawings, mixed in with personal mementos like children’s artwork or souvenirs from your travels.

Overhead Your Dresser Top

Your dresser is a great place to be a pretty focal point of your bedroom. Try to display photo tiles in a 3×3 layout. They don’t require any interior designer! Ensure to leave some open space for easy viewing.

Along The Stairway

Within Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s often the place to indulge in some good conversations paired with even better food. It is also the place to get inspired as well as get a little messy. So, let photo tiles help immerse yourself into the places and memories that inspired you in the first place.

Anywhere In Your Apartment

If you don’t have one large wall, photo tiles can be hung around windows, around doors, above bed heads, above and around fireplaces, or even around cabinets in a kitchen.

Ways To Arrange Photo Tiles

The important details are the ones that tell your story best and offer creative enjoyment in the process. Despite the tips and tricks, you read throughout your photo tile journey, there’s no right or wrong way to decorate your space. Take the tips that suit you best, and run with them.

Simple Grid

custom photo tilesGo with a simple grid pattern for an instantly attractive, no-fuss display. Just line your tiles up in evenly-spaced rows and columns and call it a day. The neat, orderly, symmetrical presentation will create a satisfying focal point without requiring a lot of unnecessary work on your part.

Plot your grid based on the total number of photo tiles you’re working with, as well as the dimensions of your available wall space. If you have 9 tiles, a basic 3×3 layout will probably look best; if you have 12 tiles, choose between either 4×3 or 3×4; for 20 tiles, make it 5×4 or 4×5, and so on. This approach will be your best bet if you just want to get your photos up on the wall and aren’t too particular about how they’re configured.

Eclectic Layouts

custom photo tilesPlay around with irregular layouts to lend your gallery wall added personality. If the idea of a straightforward grid setup doesn’t appeal to you, think outside the box—literally. You could, for example, take advantage of the effortless stylistic effect of offset rows, or place your tiles in a vertical stack, loose arch, or right angle. There’s no wrong way to go about it!

You also have the option of clustering your photo tiles into multiple small groupings rather than one big one, which opens up a whole new realm of hanging possibilities. If you have any other items you want to show off on your display wall, such as a shelf, shadowbox, or larger piece of artwork, figure out where you want them to go, then use your photo tiles to frame or accentuate them.

Free-Form Approach

Make unique shapes or designs for more of a free-form approach. There’s no need to limit yourself to traditional display methods, or to any method at all, for that matter. Letters, diamonds, crosses, pyramids, spirals, chevrons—it’s all fair game. A gallery wall is meant to be a reflection of your own aesthetic sensibilities, so feel free to get as creative as you like.

Gallery wall arrangements are easy solutions for blank walls and because photo tiles are not affixed to the walls. You have the flexibility to rotate pieces in and out as you wish. Think about the feeling you want to create in the room and how you want to display that feeling. Grids result in a clean, crisp, formal arrangement, and work nicely in a dining room to replace one larger piece. If a more relaxed, personal style is interesting to you, consider an eclectic-style arrangement.

Seasonal Wall

If you have an empty wall that is just screaming for a photo gallery, photo tiles make it easy to update a seasonal gallery wall. Whether you’re decorating for the fall, winter, spring, or summer, you can switch up your wall art as often as you’d like with photo tiles and display all your special holiday moments all year long.

Story Board

Sometimes the difference between the place we live and a place that feels like home is how we fill it. Pick photos from all stages of life for a gallery wall that grows with your family. It’s in the details and the little personalizations that we find comfort — nods to our story and reminders of whom and what we love most.

Mix-And-Match

If you’re using different frames, spread them out to give a little breathing room between each piece.

Inspiring Mood Board

Monochromatic Display

Panoramic Photo Spread

With photo tiles, you can do so by splitting a horizontal photograph of a landscape into multiple panels to turn a big, blank wall into a sweeping panorama. When you crop the image, factor in the space between frames, so your hills or waves, or buildings roll smoothly from one to the next.

Pro tip: Use your photo editing tool to crop the image into separate image files and print each in its own photo tile. Arrange the photo tiles on the wall to match your original photo.
