We built our home, so our walls were brand new when we moved in. I hung something over our bed three months after we moved in as a surprise for our anniversary, and nothing else for another handful of months. And that was it. I haven’t hung anything else.

So in order to display our photos, we have to be a little more creative. Part of me would cover our entire walls in smiling faces, so I’m kind of glad I’m still worried about nails. I’ve come up with a few other ways to get photos around our home, though.

5 Ways To Display Photos In Your Home (without nailing anything to the wall)

1. In frames on tables.
This is the easiest. Print your favorite photos and put them in nice, decorative frames. Then, strategically put those frames on tables around your home. We have one on our side table in the living room, a few on our dresser in the bedroom, and then others on a bookcase in the office. If you have multiples in the same place, be sure that the frames all match and don’t clash.

2. On the fridge.
I’ll only decorate one side of the fridge. Both sides just feels a little overkill to me. And I only have things hanging on the top half of the fridge too. We have a few magnets that we’ve gotten as gifts and then pictures of Pete’s nephews, another of us from my brother’s wedding, and a couple others. Changing them is as easy as swapping what’s under a magnet.3. Photo books.
The fun part about having a coffee table is having coffee table books. You can put out random books, or you could make your own. In order to display more photos, you should definitely make a photo book as a coffee table book. And if you do that, consider a Layflat book from Blurb.

What’s so cool about these Layflat books is you can go corner to corner and edge to edge across an entire two-page spread without losing any part of the image to the center. With seamless spreads, you can open the book flat and let it live on your coffee table. So cool.

4. As coasters.
We have a lot of coasters. Probably more than anyone else I know. A handful of them are photo coasters, which are very cool. We have them out on our coffee and kitchen tables and are able to look at some of our favorite photos all the time.

5. As drinkware.
We used to have a mug with all our favorite photos on it. It was our favorite mug until the handle snapped off. Oh, that was a sad day. But it was something that I had made Pete for Valentine’s Day once upon a time and it just came out better than expected. I also had made one for my grandma for the Christmas after we came back from Japan. She kept it on her desk at all times. It was a great way to see some photos without taking up any wall space.
