Picture frames are safe havens for our captured moments. They allow us to showcase those precious moments, which we value and cherish greatly, with our friends and visiting families. Additionally, picture frames share our personality in their unique designs, colors and inspirational sayings. Although, frames take up little to no space, placement on walls can magically add an artistic effect to the portraits. They allow us greater usage of wall space and clear up space for new knick-knacks.
