How to use photos to refresh your space

Giving your home a personal touch doesn’t need a large budget or redecoration. Why not use photos, accessories and a bit of handiwork to give your space a new look? We’ve got some ideas right here!

1. Light up those lovely memories


Missing vacation time? Relive those fun memories by hanging pictures of your loved ones on a lighting chain. Using pegs allows you to change the snaps easily or add more with every passing month.

2. Try using old photos for a nostalgic bed frame look

Add that wow effect to your bedside with a stunning collage. Using tape or adhesive putty attach about twenty or so pictures in the same style, such as black and white. There’s also the extra comfort of having the older generations look out for you.

3. Display your photos with style

If you want to make photos really stand out, why not try displaying them using picture ledges painted in the same shade as your walls. They can be easily attached with screws. Play around with different sizes and shapes of the frames too.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
