Step Up with Smiles
Think of a place in your house that you and your family pass by several times each day. That is the perfect place for family photos: Everyone in the household will have the opportunity to enjoy the montage as they go about their daily business.
Stairways are particularly good because of the large amount of open wallspace they provide. And stairways often lead upstairs to the private area of the house, keeping these personal images from being too much in the public view. Before hanging the pictures, consider the lighting. If the stairs are dark, add overhead spotlights on a track. That will not only improve the view, it will make the stairs safer.
A montage like this allows a lot of flexibility: Pictures from
different times, in a variety of sizes, and in any type of frame
available work together because of their family ties.
