Not everyone has the time to attend country house auctions or browse remote village locations to pick up authentic and natural home accessories; so where can you buy rustic photo frames online?
If you want “plain and simple” or a rural heritage feel to your home interior, how can you match that with the right rustic design accessories?
As going rustic is all the rage, the creative team at Memory Box decided to explore the whole topic and provide ideas and inspiration, for anyone searching for rustic photo frames online. Starting with, what exactly does “rustic” mean?
Rustic charms and décor
Some people adore elaborate and decorative rooms, or contemporary black and white interiors. Other homeowners go for deep colours and an Edwardian and Victorian ambience. Or, they splash vibrant colours around their living space and add in quirky accessories.This my not appeal to you.
Then, there are the homeowners who prefer to go “rustic”.
This generally refers to letting the natural beauty of furniture and accessories show. It is often about creating a stripped back, rural or shabby chic décor. Rustic is reminiscent of rooms in beautiful country cottages from a bygone year, or farmhouse kitchens. The emphasis is on creating living space that’s warm, welcoming and comfortable.
Often, rustic accessories and furniture are either vintage, or recently manufactured but carefully “distressed”. This adds a “weather-beaten” or aged look to the item.
The key to making "rustic" work as an interior design theme, is to use good quality but natural and authentic looking items. You want it to be “chic” and not just “shabby”!
Rustic can still mean strikingly beautiful and well-coordinated living environments, just with no elaborately decorative or highly contemporary features.

The many uses of rustic frames
If you choose to buy rustic photo frames online from us, you could use them in many creative ways and throughout your home.
For example, as rustic frames can look vintage and full of character, they are a great option when you're experimenting with black and white photography. Take a look at our Stratos Spoon Silver Antique 5 Rustic Photo Frame and imagine one of your mono images in that beautiful setting.
For arts and crafts projects involving chintzy fabrics, or paintings such as landscapes and food still-life, rustic frames can look charming. Our Monte Carlo Flat Wide Gold Distressed Rustic Photo Frame is ideal for showing off projects that have a heritage feel to them.
The modern trend for creating wonderful gift items for friends and family could also be why you are searching for rustic photo frames online.
Making collages from images, memorabilia, lettering and shallow 3D items such as buttons doesn’t always need a box frame. Instead, our Vermont Flat Wide Gold Distressed Rustic Photo Frame makes a striking surround for a gift picture. It’s stripped back and authentic, adding a dramatic value to the contents of the frame.
Choosing the right rustic frame for your project
One of the great things about buying rustic photo frames online is that you have access to an incredible range of colours and finishes. You can browse through the options at your leisure and then buy in a matter of minutes.
Selecting rustic frames in amazing colours and styles is not always that easy in a physical store.
You can even zoom in on the frame you’re considering and hold your phone up to the wall for that extra reassurance that the shade and effect are perfect.
Give some thought to whether you want a mount inside or a rustic frame with no mount. Mounts add emphasis and dramatic effect - or manage the space around the frame contents. However, your painting, photo or wall art may look better filling the whole surface of the frame dimensions.
Buying with confidence
Keep in mind too, that the cheapest place to buy rustic photo frames online is not necessarily going to give you the right results. If you’re looking for a distressed or slightly “rough and ready” look for your frames, that doesn’t mean you should have the distress of shoddy workmanship!
Quality matters and it generally only shows when you open the item up, to put your image or painting inside the frame. That could be when you realise that the glass is cloudy for example. Problems with badly made picture frames can develop over time too. Such as, when the fit is poor along the sides of the frame it can leave space for dust and condescension to settle.
For that reason, the best place to find rustic photo frames online is Memory Box, as we make sure we combine “plain and simple” pricing with superb quality.
In fact, our Rustic Flat Frames are available from £3.99! It uses the right materials for a durable frame though.
We also invest attention to detail throughout the manufacturing and packing process. Memory Box also offers fast delivery, whether you want your rustic frames for a remote country cottage or a city centre apartment!
