Teen Picture Frames

Teen Frames

The way you decorate your bedroom says a lot about you. It reflects your personality and the things that are important to you. One of the greatest things about decor is that you can change it anytime you want, like a giant pin board that adapts as you find new inspirations and passions. Art isn’t just about the present. It ties the past – awesome memories – and the future – your imagination – together too. At PBteen, we want you to feel comfortable expressing yourself creatively whenever you feel like it. One way to celebrate your individuality and unique talents is to show them off with picture frames. Our teen frames have different styles to match your bedroom design vision. Looking for some info to help choose? Here are a few tips.


One thing that’s good to keep in mind is that picture frames aren’t just for photographs. You can use them to display anything you want. True, it’s awesome to keep snapshots around your room of happy moments with friends. They make you smile all day long, since they remind you of good times, people who love you and the things you’ve done together. Photos of vacation trips and travels capture your impressions of different parts of the world. What else fits in a picture frame?


If you’re into art, frames are a great way to highlight your favorite prints. Pretty much any kind of art fits, including collages, sketches and even personal projects. Like to draw? Definitely frame your sketches or paintings if you want to. Why? They inspire you with confidence, put your own spin on your room and let you showcase your talents a bit. If movies and music are more your thing, frames turn your favorite actors and artists into a cool work of art.


What size frame is best? It depends completely on what you want your room to look like. The size of your artwork or photos also comes into play, but only up to a point. That’s because if you want to use a large frame with a small photo, you definitely can. It’s a chic and artistic way to decorate. Some frames have a wide matte – the white part between your picture and the outside border – and others don’t have a matte at all. A matte usually gives art a museum feel, where pictures with no matte are more informal, gritty and in-your-face. You can mix and match anything you want to create your dream room.


Where should you hang picture frames? Again, that’s totally up to you. If you feel like there’s an open space where you want to put something, go for it. Always trust your instincts when designing. Some people like to put pictures about their bed’s headboard because it’s the first thing they see when they walk into the room. Maybe you prefer showing off your artwork on the biggest wall in your room. Another great spot for inspiration is above your desk.


How high do most people hang pictures? Photos and artwork usually look awesome when they’re at eye level. That’s about 5' from the ground. When it comes to furniture like desks or beds, though, you might just focus on keeping art about 10" from the top. No matter what, go with your gut for fine tuning things. If you think it looks better a little higher or lower, go for it. Your eye knows what looks best.


Another option for picture frames is called a gallery wall. It’s where you have a bunch of frames together in a group. It’s awesome for creating a related art collection or photo collage. How do you design a gallery wall? There are a lot of styles, so feel free to play around with things until you’re happy. You can even cut out some construction paper and tape them to the wall to get a feel for things before hanging your pictures. Start with the center picture and work out from there. The frames don’t have to match, or even be the same color. It’s all about expressing yourself artistically.
