You now have a variety of colors, sizes, shapes and different materials to choose from that can greatly enhance any décor.
When choosing unique picture frames to match your décor you need to first decide which type of material would go the best. For example, would wood, metal, acrylic or rustic frames bring your look together? Of course, this decision is a little harder than it use to be with all of the unique designs you have to choose from as some of the more modern picture frames may not even fall into one of these categories.
Next on the list would be choosing the style that suits your taste the best. Will it be modern, traditional or transitional? You will need to choose the color that brings out the best in your décor and decide which sizes would pull everything together to create the look you are trying to achieve. The last big decision you will need to make will be where to place the picture fames so they will enhance your décor and not take away from something else.
Keep in mind that photos are not the only thing that you can place in a picture frame. You can also place that beautiful drawing, heartfelt poem or special certificate inside a unique picture frame so they can be displayed for all to see. Don’t limit yourself to just decorating with wall frames, there are so many exciting and exclusive table designs available it would be a shame not to take advantage of them as well.
One of the most neglected rooms in your home is usually the bathroom. This is really a shame since the bathroom is as important as any other room in the house and deserves your attention just as much. When you take into consideration that this is the one room in your home that everyone uses regularly, including your guest, you can begin to see how important your décor really is. Therefore, if you have not put much thought into decorating your bathroom before, maybe it is time to start.
There are quite a few different themes available for your bathroom so it should be fairly easy to find one that suits your personality and style.
Here is a list of some of your options.
• Beach and Ocean Themes
• Country and Western Theme
• Modern Theme
• Causal Theme
• Traditional Theme
• Floral Themes
Before you can choose a theme and know which decorating idea would work the best, you need to consider the size of your bathroom. If it’s small, then you will need to use a more conservative way to decorate but if you have a large bathroom you may want to add a few pieces of furniture to brighten up the room and create extra storage space.
Regardless of which theme you choose to use it is important that you do not use a lot of different patterns in the bathroom. Stick with only a couple patterns that match and compliment each other. The theme you choose should be brought to life through your accessories while the walls, floor and counters should be neutral colors for the best results.
