Different Ways of Styling Picture Frames on a Wall

Are you planning to decorate a wall with picture frames, or even create a photo gallery wall? If yes, then you might be in search of great ideas of styling your picture frames on a wall. Worry not, we have some ideas for you!

In this article, we have explained popular ideas of styling picture frames on a wall.

Try Something Different
Leaning a frame against a wall is a new and different approach to using picture frames. An advantage of leaning frames over hanging frames is that you do not have to make holes in the wall, and you can place the frames anywhere where there is a flat surface.

You can get a special shelf installed for frames, or you can use a bookshelf or ledge above a fireplace to lean frames.

Mix and Match
We often see groups of frames of the same type decorating a wall. This style is commonly seen. But you can show some uniqueness and mix frames of different kinds to create a theme of its own. Select frames of variable dimensions, but of the same colour. Arrange them on a wall to create harmony. If you have the know-how of home décor, you can add other decorative items such as wall lamps etc., to make frames and your wall look more attractive.

Decorate Walls with Large-Sized Frames
If there are large empty walls in your home, you can cover them with large sized beautiful frames and prints. Supersized frames look good in modern homes. They look dominating and gather all the attention of the viewer. Such frames look good in a room that has other large-sized items as well.

Don’t Hang them too Close or too Far
Placing frames at the right distance from each other is important to create a balanced look. Frames that are too close look congested, while those that are placed faraway look scattered. Usually, the distance between two frames should be less than 8cm. Consider wall size while selecting a group of frames for that wall.

Beautify them with Other Décor Elements
You should consider other home décor components when decorating a wall with picture frames. Frame colour should suit the paint colour of the wall. White frames on a wall painted in black, or vice versa, will look very classy. You can buy matching wall stickers, wall clocks, wall lamps, etc., to mix them with frames. Consider room furniture as well when selecting frames. Everything should look balanced and in symmetry.

Create a Unique Picture Frame Theme
You can style picture frames in any of your favourite themes. You can display bright coloured images in dark-coloured frames, or you can create a traditional look with antique frames. Likewise, you can create a modern look with black and white frames.
Add a personal touch to these frames if you are fond of personalizing your items. For this, you can paint a frame or attach beads and something similar in your own style.
