How to Decorate a New Home & Fill Up Your Walls

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 wall, and making sure that the house looks like a home. You want to make your home decor look like an interior designer it was involved, and we want to help.

5 New Home Decorating Tips & Ideas


  1. Do not feel obligated to place all your old décor or picture frames to your new home.

Now is the perfect time to start fresh and decorate your new house as you have always wanted. That being said, you do not need to toss everything. Some of your favorite 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 decor or give them a fresh new look. In the sad event that the glass was broken during transport in a picture frame you loved, we also offer picture frame glass replacement to help the item look like new.


  1. Plan ahead.

Before you start hanging miscellaneous prints or photos, you may want to take the time to think about the direction you want for the look and style of your new home. What color frames do you want in each room? Do you want multiple items on each wall or one statement piece? Is there a specific theme for the room? The sooner you can answer these questions, the quicker you can get custom framing or find décor to meet these needs.


  1. Think outside the box.

Decorating your new house can be stressful, but it also offers a world of possibility. Instead of dated photos or traditional paintings on your walls, get creative. Get a custom framed mirror to lean against a wall. You can also frame almost anything in a shadow box to create a unique display.


  1. Ask the experts for help.

You may not know how to decorate your new home or where to begin. Instead of staring at that daunting blank wall, ask for help. Our framing consultants 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 also offer art consulting to help you find new works to go with your existing collection or your new decor.


  1. Focus on one room at a time.

While it is good to have a general idea of what you want to do, doing 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.


At Rosenbaum Framing, we understand that decorating your new home is supposed to be fun, but sometimes it can wind up being stressful. Instead of going it alone, stop by our shop and we can help.
