A great way to decorate your home in my opinion is with lots and lots of pictures. However, too many people pay little attention to the custom picture frames surrounding the picture and the meaning behind it gets lost. I’m sorry but picture frames are more than a tool to hang a photo from a wall. Think of picture framing kits as that finishing touch which can add the dramatic flair you desire to the pictures they enclose.
Unfortunately, not too many of us know how to properly dress up our pictures and our walls. I constantly am seeing custom picture frames used improperly. They are either hung in the incorrect manner, don’t match the photo or worse yet, don’t go with the room they are in. I’m here to help.
If your room has light colored walls and flooring, you are better off choosing contrasting colored wood photo frames to accentuate the colors of the furniture. The opposite holds true for dark colored walls and flooring. Choosing a softer, colored picture frames allows those colors to come out even more. Instead of looking at your walls and only seeing an open space, look at the complete picture of what you want to create from wall to floor. This is a much easier way to get a better sense of what others will see as they walk into your home.
Try adding a new dimension to your wall with staggering the heights of different custom picture frames. Your picture frame kits don’t need to be hung at the same exact height. I love the staggering look of hanging frames. The varying positions of the wood photo frames are a great eye catcher and an interesting design for someone to see. It’s easy to do too as long as you have the correct picture framing supplies and a pre cut mat board.
Try positioning them in a snake across the wall or maybe a zigzag positioning of the pictures. If there are furniture in the corners of your room, try setting the picture frames up in a way which focuses the eyes on them. This can work to highlight something or points the eye away towards another part of the room. I always felt this adds a nice accent to any room while bringing out the rich colors of your furnishings to an even greater degree.
Another great picture frames idea is to alter the sizes of the custom picture frames used to match the expanse of your wall. I like to try smaller wood photo frames in warm areas like bathrooms and hallways and larger ones for large wall areas to accent the ceiling heights. Try working in a large custom picture frames with a couple of smaller ones, too.
Once you get your mind working on ideas, youll see just how many endless ideas are out there for custom picture frames. The possibilities are limitless in ways you can dress up the rooms of your home. Dare to be exciting and let wood photo frames accent the best in your home.
