Our homes are full of small and large frames. Metal frames, wooden frames, paper frames, and plastic frames – every frame has the potential of turning into an exceptional wall decoration. Creative and simple, these wall decorations can adorn modern interiors and help declutter homes. If you can collect a few wood picture frames (frame sizes do not matter), you can create a fabulous collection of various wooden frames for unique wall decor.

Mixing different frame shapes, colors, materials, and sizes is a modern trend in home decorating ideas. Grouped picture frames look great and beautifully decorate empty walls. In addition, you can turn an old or cheap picture frame into a custom-made wall decoration with stylish stripes or floral patterns, creating affordable and modern wall decor for your rooms.
