Photo frames come in all shapes and sizes and allow you to add your own creative flare to your home. You can create gallery walls, display tokens from trips or showcase your favourite pictures or artwork (to name a few!). It’s really not as tricky as it may first seem to create your own picture frame arrangements that are pinterest-worthy! In this blog I’ll take you through a 3 step guide to using picture frame arrangements.
How to create stunning picture frame arrangements at home...
Step 1 - Chooseit; deciding what you want to display
To create a stunning picture frame arrangement you can start by choosing what you wish to display. For example, if you’ve recently got married, had some family photos or had a weekend away with your friends then you may wish to display these. Having happy pictures around a house really brightens up the place and will bring some light to your mood whenever you see them. A few things to remember when choosing what you want to display are size, colour and style.
You don’t have to limit yourself to just displaying photographs if that’s not your thing, other things you can display in your picture frame arrangements are:
- Artwork or prints
- Get creative with our box frames to showcase your personality (For creative ideas on what to put in your box frames look at this old blog by Rinkit - Thinking Outside The Box (rinkit.com)
- Photo collages
Step 2 - displayit - choose the perfect place in your home
When it comes to finding the perfect place in your home, it all depends on the space you have available. For example, is there some empty space above your bed or next to the fridge in the kitchen? These make great places for a picture frame arrangement or artwork. Gallery walls will take your photo frame arrangements to the next level! Even if you only have a small space to work with, choosing smaller frames and less of them can still work amazingly. You could just choose 3 of the same size to create a simple photo frame arrangement that still looks effective!
Step 3 - frameit - finding the right photo frames
The next thing to decide to make the perfect picture frame arrangements is what kind of frames you want to use. Choosing a photo frame can come down to many factors including your style, your home interior and the space you have. There’s box frames, wooden frames or even metal frames. If you have an industrial styled interior then metal frames would look great. Wooden frames are great for a vintage or Scandinavian styled home (however, wood goes with anything!). Box Frames are an all rounder great one as they go with most if not all styled homes. The depth of the box frames can be adjusted depending on what you wish to display. These are great for creative projects such as lego, scrabble or dried flowers. Or, if you are a bit more daring, you could do a mix of all of the frames to create your own unique gallery wall.
Making sure you get the right sized frames for the space you have is very important. You can get frames of all different sizes to create some depth and variety to the gallery wall - just ensure you don’t get anything too big for the space.
Creating your own show-stopping picture frame arrangements can be anything from a huge gallery wall to simply a 3 piece box frames. You can be completely unique and experimental to see what works best for your style and home, and have fun doing it!
