Below are some creative ways to personalise and transform your space using picture frames. You can go as big as you want: from a mini photo frame display makeover to a whole gallery wall of picture frames.

Alternative ways to fill a photo frame

1. Maps

A map on a wall is common, but a framed map in a dark stained timber picture frame adds timeless character to a gallery wall. Using ancient or historical maps brings you to a legendary and fantasy world while using modern or contemporary maps brings a sense of exploration and adventure.
