Making a New House Feel Like a Home

In a couple of years, my husband and I plan to purchase our dream house. Because I’ve been saving money for a new place for several years, I sometimes doubt if my dreams of home ownership will ever come true. Whenever I move into my new abode, I know I will need help with the decorating process. While I know the style I would like to incorporate in my new home, I lack the skills necessary to accomplish my desires. Whenever I shop at home interior stores, I feel so lost. Therefore, I will require the help of a skilled interior designer to help me make my new house feel like a home. On this blog, you will discover the characteristics of a great interior designer. Enjoy!

4 Creative Projects To Create Attractive Décor With Custom Picture Frames

by Aapo Ahola

Custom picture frames are not something that you think of when it comes to interior décor and design. Of course, picture frames are used for photos and paintings, but they can be used for a lot more. With a little creativity, custom frames will give your home's interior design a personal touch with unique décor features, such as a fourth dimension by framing 3D objects or inconspicuous lighting hidden behind frames. Here are some creative projects to do with custom picture frames to personalize your home's décor little more.

1. Frame Around 3-Dimensional Objects To Create A Fourth-Dimension

If you want to have something that catches the eye and is adventurous and fun, why not add a fourth-dimension to your home? This can be done with three-dimensional objects, such as sculptures, taxidermy animals, and other objects. To make the objects seem like they are jumping out of the frame, cut them and attach them to the wall. If you do not want to cut something, cut a small hole in the drywall and plaster around it to create the same illusion.

2. Frame Small Shelves And Key Racks With Notes For Practical Décor

Keys and post-it notes are usually close together. Why not make a rack for your keys that includes a whiteboard and notepads with picture frames? This can be an especially fun project if you have children, and they can help personalize the design of this practical picture frame that you and your family will use every day. To make this project even more practical, add small drawers at the bottom for pocket change and other knick-knacks you carry in your pocket.

3. Spacious Illusions For Small Spaces With Custom Picture Frames And LED Lighting

Custom picture frames are great solutions to create spacious illusions in small spaces. Some of the options that you may want to consider include infinite mirrors that are done with led lights behind the edge of the frame or a window illusion with a realistic nature window seen that you frame. To create more of a realistic appearance for a window scene, use RGB LED strip lighting to add light to your artwork. RGB lights have the benefit of allowing you to program or adjust the tone of lighting to match different times of the day.

4. Painting Projects To Finish Walls And Custom Framing For A Finishing Touch

There are many ways to give walls in your home a custom finish, which can be faux finishes, patterns or murals that you decorate the walls with. To add your personal touch of elegance, frame different paint finishes and murals to create more depth in these features and make them stand out as works of art.

These are some creative projects with picture frames to add personalized décor to your home's interior design. If you need materials to get started with some of these projects, contact a custom picture framing service to get a variety of different frame styles and sizes to use.
