They say a picture speaks a thousand words. A picture with a great looking photo frame speaks even more. Photos are a great way for us to store memories of people and occasions that are dear to us. Besides reminding us of those special occasions, photo frames also serve as great conversation starters when relatives, friends and guests come over.
Having a nice family picture or portrait in your living room is the perfect way to introduce any visitors to your family. Pictures also give a great insight into the personality of those who live there, often revealing insights into their friends, achievements, hobbies and interests.
If you are looking for the perfect photo frame for your photograph, then you do not need to look beyond HomeTown. Whether it’s a picture, a painting, a portrait or any other piece of art, a great photo frame enhances the picture and makes it more appealing. At HomeTown, we have a wide variety of table top picture frames, desk photo frames, and other frames that you can choose from in different designs, shapes and sizes.
Besides adding beauty to your walls and tables, photo frames are also a great accent piece to fill up empty spaces in your home. It’s also a great idea to put pictures in table top photo frames next to your study table or your beds. Some people also put photo frames in the entryway to their houses or the staircases.
Factors to keep in mind while picking Desk Frames:
There are several factors one should keep in mind to ensure that the photo frame creates a visually appealing experience by matching it with the décor of the room and the rest of the furniture in it. Some of the points to keep in mind include:
The size of the photo frames
The size of the photo frame can make a big impact on the visual appeal of the picture. The subject of the photograph, whether it is a picture of a family, individual wildlife, landscape or nature will have an impact on the size of the photo frame. Small photo frames for desks work better when it comes to individual pictures while a larger-sized photo frame is more suited for family portraits.
For a regular home, the most preferred photo frame sizes are 4x6 inches, 6x8 inches, and 8x10 inches.
The shape of the photo frames
Another important factor to keep in mind is the shape of the photo frame, which itself is dependent on the dimensions of the photograph. Photos taken in landscape mode should ideally be placed in a horizontal rectangle photo frame, whereas those in portrait mode go better with a square photo frame.
The materials of the photo frame
Photo frame materials are generally made from wood, ceramic, glass and metal. The best one for your home depends on your individual preferences and the existing décor in the room and you can always experiment to create something magical that works best for you.
The placement of the photo frame
Where you are going to place the photo frame will also have a big impact on the frame you choose. The amount of space available in the room along with the existing décor around it will have to be factored in while finalizing the frame.
Hometown’s regal collection of desk photo frames:
HomeTown has a wide range of desk photo frames that meet different designs, styles and budget requirements. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular types of desk photo frames that you can consider for your home.
Wall Photo Frames
Wall photo frames are the most common type of photo frames that can be mounted on a wall. You can use these to put up one picture or a few as well and make it the centrepiece of your wall.
Collage Photo Frames
Collage photo frames are a great way to display several photographs on the same wall. They come in several different styles and formats and can hold as many pictures as you may like.
Decorative Photo Frames
Photo frames with beautifully designed borders enhance the picture, adding more colour and elegance to the picture. Decorative photo frames with borders provide you with several different designs to choose from to make your picture frame go with the overall look and ambience of your home.
You can also consider enhancing the photo frame by adding fairy lights or other similar accessories to lighten up the picture and the ambience in the room. The right lighting can enhance the effect of the picture multifold times and can create the perfect ambience in your room.
Table Photo Frames
Table photo frames are basically a single photo frame with a stand behind it which can be placed on any table or other surface. Table photo frames can be placed on your bedside table, study table, coffee table or a small storage unit and are easy to move around from one spot to another.
By adding some home décor accessories such as table lamps, lanterns, natural flowers, artificial flowers, or small pieces of artificial stones and jewellery, you can give your table a gorgeous makeover.
Wooden Photo Frames
A wooden frame with its rustic and natural design lends a great finish to a photo frame. Due to their durability, this is a very popular option among buyers as well for their bedside tables or study tables. Photo frames made from wood go very well with modern and contemporary homes.
Couple photo frames
For those who like to cherish their special someone, couple photo frames are a great choice. These are two photo frames attached next to one another and make the perfect accessory for a table in your bedroom.
Digital picture frame
With the move towards digital photographs and taking selfies on our mobile phones, there has been a sea change in the way we take pictures. Moving with the times, photo frames have also gone digital. Digital photo frames can display multiple pictures which keep changing at periodic intervals so that you can view different pictures. You can also update the pictures loaded into the digital photo frame, which means you can make it look refreshed whenever you choose to.

The best and most reliable option is to go for the nail and hook. It can be used in just about every frame. But if you are looking for alternatives, you can also consider Velcro or braided wire.
Velcro can be used only for frames that are relatively small and lightweight. On an approximate basis, frames up to 30cm by 40cm could be hung using Velcro. As the frame becomes heavier, the more ineffective Velcro becomes. Braided wires are also an option but they can be tricky to use for hanging photo frames.
In most cases, digital photo frames have built-in stereo speakers and will be able to play music files. With this feature, you can also store music besides your pictures. The in-slide show mode of the digital photo frame can set pictures running with predetermined music playing in the background.

It is worth investing in an additional memory card along with your digital photo frame. This will help you store more photographs over time and you can revisit your favourite pictures more conveniently. A multi-card reader to connect to your PC for simple memory card loading and editing is also good to have.
The easiest way to update, add or delete pictures on your memory card is via the personal computer or laptop.
