Unique Ways to Use Large Picture Frames

Beautiful pieces of art can be created out of the most mundane everyday objects. Simple objects are now being viewed through lenses of creativity over practicality, leading to the realization of unique and breathtaking artwork. The same is true in the case of large picture frames. The general motto behind this concept is the idea that if something is of interest, then why not put a frame on it. Let us look at some innovative and non-traditional ways in which large picture frames can be used.

  • Nowadays it seems you do not need a painting to purchase a frame. People have begun to hang empty frames along the walls of their home as decorative pieces. This allows the frame and your wall itself to be a piece of art. When done in subtle ways, these decorative pieces can add a chic design element to a room.
  • Large picture frames with mats can also be used as trays. These can be used to display decorative items, store a group of items, or for serving drinks and food when entertaining.
  • Another unique option is turn large picture frames in to key racks, which can be hung near the door to hold keys and other important items that can easily be misplaced. This turns the frame into a functional, but decorative element.
  • Similar to the key rack concept, large picture frames can be placed around hanging jewelry like necklaces and earrings, creating, in essence, a ‘gallery’ of jewelry.
  • Additionally, since large picture frames come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles. Frames themselves can be used as art pieces. Arranging picture frames in geometric patterns on a large wall is another way of integrating décor that has strong undertones of modern, contemporary art.
