Spruce up that bedroom and bring a bright splash of color to the bathroom with these awesome ideas to use frames in your decor.
Ali here, from Homey Improvements, sharing some creative ways to use frames in your home decor.
Creating interesting home decor doesn’t have to break the bank. You can start increasing the appeal of your home without busting your budget, using everyday items like frames. All you need are some frames and a little imagination to get started.
Find an interesting mix of frames with a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Sit down and plan where you want to put items or just go with the flow. Your home is a personal space that represents you; don’t be afraid to put your personality into your design.
1. Create Shelving
Deep frames are a perfect place to put display items that don’t fit in a traditional flat frame. You can use deep frames to create shelving to hold striking focus pieces like a colorful vase or some of your favorite knickknacks. You can also use deep frames as a bookshelf. Draw more attention to this piece using brightly colored books or arranging them in a color coordinated manner. Try mixing the way you stack the books to create a more unique arrangement.
2. Create a Space to Hang Jewelry
Put up small hooks and hang jewelry inside a picture frame to keep your collection organized and create an accent piece. Not only will you always be able to find your favorite pieces, you are also storing them in a way that adds some flair to your interior design. Use hooks that fit the color scheme in your space to tie it into the decor seamlessly. To make this idea more child-friendly, you can put ribbons in the frame and fill them with all the colorful hair clips your little girl has.
3. Decorate Your Mirror
Use beautiful frames to make large mirrors appear smaller, and create his and hers sides by framing the mirror into sections. Before adding any extra weight to your mirrors, make sure they are properly secured. After your mirror is safely up, grab your frames of choice and a professional glue gun to assure that your frames and glass adhere as well as possible.
You can also add a frame around the mirror above your sink to add style to your bathroom.
4. Add a Pop of Color
Got a room with a neutral color palette? Add brightly colored frames to your wall for a splash of color. Alternatively, bring balance to colorful rooms by adding neutral frames. Create interesting designs by fitting smaller frames inside, and consider alternating colors for a truly one-of-a-kind look.
5. Create a Headboard
Hang an interesting or intricate frame above your bed as a headboard. This interior design idea would work especially well if your bed is against a painted accent wall. Pick a frame that stands out against your wall color to draw attention to this piece.
When it comes to reusing or repurposing frames for your home decor, the only limit is your creativity. Your individual style will help you create designs that are truly unique, and knowing that you saved a bunch of money will feel good too. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box on this one – be as bold as you want.
