While this isn’t a save choice that works for everyone, it can be a bold statement that works perfect when picked for the right occasion.

4. Ivory With Moss Silver Molten Series

The 2.5″ wood frame isn’t just sturdy and thick. It also has more depth than you’ll find in any other frame, both literally and in the way the different tones pop out the longer you look at it.

5. Metal Smokey Marble

Like the Snowflake frame on spot #3, this metal frame is a darker shade of white. Aside from the tone, the first thing that stands out is the unique marble pattern. Combined with the metal, this creates a dynamic that serves as a subtle undertone for the piece on display. At the same time, this frame is eye-catching in its own right (especially combined with a sizable mat).

How to Declutter Your House With Picture Frames [InfoGraphic]

Decluttering has gained in popularity over the past decade. More and more books and blogs teach you how to go through your home and keep what you want, while getting rid of the things that are unnecessary. Getting rid of the clutter in your home has shown significant effects on your mood and stress levels, but it also makes your house looks nice. But using picture frames, you can achieve all the same things, while also adding a positive element to your home.

In the infographic below, we have lined out four ways that picture frames can help you declutter and the benefits of using a picture frame. Whether it’s getting rid of sports pictures, your old diploma, or memorabilia around a special trip you made, a picture frame is the perfect spot to keep and honor the things you don’t want to get rid off. Keep reading below the image for more information on how picture frames can help you declutter.

declutter using picture frames

Save what matters

One of the problems with decluttering is that there are some things that just don’t fit your house, but you also don’t want to throw out the window- small things you feel an emotional attachment to. Now, depending on which method you use, there are different ways to handle those things. But if you’re looking for a good way to honor the small things you feel emotionally attached to, picture frames can offer the perfect way out. By framing your most treasured memories, you can almost have your declutter cake and eat it, too.

Turn clutter into memories

Not only does framing your treasured memories give you a chance to keep the sentimental while also clearing up space, if you’re proactive about it, you can make memories count where it matters. Because what good is a great photo album if it just takes up space in your book case?

Instead of keeping memories of a trip that you one day hope to turn into a photo album, turn a picture frame into a collage-style photo album. This way, not only do you keep your most important memories intact, you also display them where you can actually see them. And if you’ve got new memories to display, you can simply reuse the same frame.

Reduce stress

Full disclosure: using picture frames doesn’t reduce more stress than using another way to declutter your home. But for people who hate throwing away meaningful things, picture frames do make decluttering a little easier.

Improve your interior

A good picture frame adds to the aesthetics of your home. A good picture frame that’s well used does that, but also adds a sense of personalizing. If you hang your important memories where you can see them, your mood might be elevated every time you see them. And when it comes to decorating your home, shouldn’t that be a leading principle?
