A new home offers a blank canvas for decorating. After unpacking the boxes and putting the furniture in place, it is time to start filling up the empty space, hanging items on the walls and making sure the house looks like a home.
New Home Decorating Tips and Ideas:
Do not feel obligated to place all your old décor or picture frames in your new home
Now is the perfect time to start afresh and decorate your new house as you always wanted. But you do not need to throw out everything. Some of your favourite framed pictures or mirrors can be used as building blocks for decorating your new home. We can reframe art or mirrors to match your new décor or give them a fresh new look. In the sad event that the glass was broken during transportation in a frame you loved, we also offer glass replacement to help the item look like new.
Before you start hanging your artwork, take the time to think about the direction you want for the look and style of your new home. What colour frames do you want in each room? Do you want multiple items on each wall or one statement piece?
Ask the experts for help
We can help you choose from hundreds of moulding options to create a new frame for your art or mirror that will fit your space perfectly in the style you are looking for. We can also find new works to go with your existing collection.
Focus on one room at a time
While it is good to have a general idea of what you want to do, attempting to decorate the whole house at once can be overwhelming. Focus on filling up the walls of one room at a time. This approach can also help ensure that everything matches and is consistent.
We pride ourselves at finding the perfect frames to complement whatever is being framed and treat every piece we frame as though it were a priceless piece of fine art. If it’s valuable to our client, it’s valuable to us.
