Pictures and ideal way to convey various moods, feelings and ideas and can therefore make great décor choices for you home. A photo that you hang in your home can be a photo of your or your loved one. But it can also be a photo of a city you once visited or an animal you find majestic and beautiful.
When you have a lot of photos, it can be very easy for them to crowd your home. But how do you plan the placement of the photos, so they look inviting rather than crowded? Well, the following tips should help;
- Shop for Photographs by Room
When buying beautiful printed photos for your home, you should keep in mind that just as different images convey different moods and feelings, so are different rooms meant for different purposes. With that in mind, you should realize that you are going to need different photos for different tools. Mellow and tranquil images of nature are better placed in your bedroom. Provocative abstract images are best placed in your living room. You can consider putting playful cheerful pieces in the children’s room.
- Choose a Theme And Maintain it
Just as it is with every other decorating fete, begin by taking the time to consider a theme and then purchase only photographs that fit into this theme. This doesn’t in any way mean that you should only buy similar images. You can choose to have photos in gray scale in your living room and colored photos in the kitchen and bedrooms. The main idea is that they all have the same subject with slight variations.
- Break the Frame Monotony with Other Stuff that is Not Framed
Photos look great with a frame around them. But when you have too many photos, looking at the cluster of framed can be a real bore. The easiest way to enhance the effect of the framed photographs is to surround them by other items that are not framed. If you can find some cool antique decorations, they can serve to emphasize the best photos in your collection.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Be Different
Most people will place their photos behind the couch. Don’t be afraid to change this tradition. You can choose instead to arrange the photos in your corridors. You can also choose to arrange the images in clusters or if you have a long corridor in ascending or descending order and don’t forget to leave some space on the walls for photos you may purchase or take in the future.
But photos are not the only item in your décor that you should consider. That’s why you should resist the urge to frame and hang every photo you have. Select only those that will invoke a response from your visitors or fit into the genera ambience of your home. When buying photos for décor purposes, choose themes you feel comfortable with; something that will easily fit into your life.
