I love having a family photo wall in our home. It’s not only beautiful to look at, but I love the priceless memories I get to cherish every time I look at it.

In today’s post, I will be talking about 10 reasons why you should have a family photo wall in your home.




Home decor is one of the hobbies my husband and I love to do. We enjoy dressing up our home to make it feel more warm and unique.

We change up our space often to suit all our family’s needs.

This wall is one of the favorites that we put up as it shows all the trips we have been on and the memories we cherished since we have this home.

We use Minted.com to frame all our special moments. As you can see in the photos, every picture on this wall is specially framed and customized to look exactly how we want it.

What I like most is that you can adjust almost everything about the picture; the frame size and color, size of the photograph, unique artist design, and more.

Now every time we go on a trip or any special moment we have with our family, we always want to frame it with Minted.

10 Reasons Why You Should Have A Family Photo Wall



You can use it as an art piece in your home 

Having a family photo wall in your home is an excellent way of creating beautiful art. Instead of buying stock photos and generic art pieces, you can pick out from a department store, using unique and priceless pictures of your family is much more beautiful and inspiring.


You can relive those family moments and enjoy them


A family photo wall lets you enjoy the moments you have taken and get to relive them again. Family portraits of holiday trips and summer vacation are great ways to bring back those fun memories and experiences.


It’s good for your kids to see themself growing up


Having photos of your kids up on a family photo wall lets them see how they have grown over the years. Your kids can see how they have grown and can appreciate those moments even more, knowing how fast time goes by.

Research done by David Krauss, a licensed psychologist from Cleveland, Ohio, said that having family photos on the walls of your home helps to boost your child’s self-esteem. He goes on to say, “It is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit. A photographer’s job is to create and make the image look like a safe holding space for kids where they are safe and protected. Kids get it on a really simple level”.





It’s a great way to do a recap of a year or family trip


A family photo wall gallery of a specific year or trip is even more enjoyable. If you showcase a specific year, you can walk through each of the photos. You can feel as if you experienced the year as it went by. So every day, when you look at your family photo wall, you have a more precise memory of the heart that you loved so much.


Makes your home have more life to it

Having photos of your family bring more life to your home. When you show more life in your pictures, that feeling transpires into your living space. Happy, active, and fun pictures of your family make your home feel better.





You become more appreciative and grateful

A family photo wall makes you more grateful for the family you have. Having a family is lucky, and not everyone has the chance to frame pictures of their family and display them. When you see pictures of your family hanging on your wall, you start to feel a sense of appreciation and gratefulness.


The photos of your family are priceless

There are lots of art decor you can have displayed in your home, but family pictures are priceless. There is no price for a perfect shot of you and your loved ones. These are memories that no one else can recreate or experience.






You can pass down the picture to your kids

Photos of your family are great to pass down to your kids over time. You can look at it as a type of family momentum that your kids will cherish for years to come.



It’s a great talking piece

With a beautifully displayed family photo wall, it can become a great talking piece. When company comes over, you can talk about the moments you shared with your family and tell stories that are sure to interest anyone.


The photos will make you want to experience more family trips


The best thing about having a family photo wall is the desire to take more family trips. When you have some great memories on the wall, it’s natural to want to go on more trips and truly experience and enjoy life.
