Bird Cages are gorgeous and so in right now as far as décor ideas are concerned. Where ever you go at the moment you are bound to see those gorgeous ornamental bird cages being displayed and sold for design and décor purposes. Whether you go for a really big one, or a couple little ones, Bird cages are one of the hottest décor objects to have to compliment you design and décor this season.
Now I’m not talking about the kind of bird cage you use to house your pet budgie! Those are cute and all, but I don’t really think you really want to use a square cage that can double up as a home for a bird or a hamster as a pretty décor element in your home! I’m talking about those stunning ornamental, sometimes oriental looking birdcages, the ones often made out of wood that are so lovely to look at. And right now you can find them everywhere!
But how does one use these bird cages to best effect? I mean surely you can’t fill your house with birds! Well no, there are a number of other ways in which to use bird cages in your home to enhance your décor. Here are a few hot décor ideas using bird cages that could give you a little inspiration for the design and décor of your home!
For the dining room or out side décor a very hot décor idea is to place a birdcage on your table as a centre piece. It can stand alone, or what also looks very attractive is to place a candle or two in it. If you want to play a little or do something different, keep the bird cage in your kitchen with a bowl of sweets or your fruit in it! Just for fun!
A very hot décor idea using bird cages, and one that creates beautiful dramatic atmosphere is to hang a birdcage, or two, or three in an area of your home where you are trying to create a soft or sensual atmosphere, fill the cages with candles and light them. Obviously, if the cage is wooden, be careful not to place the candles right up against the bars! In this image the decorator has used a combination of hanging bird cages, and also one standing on a pedestal to create a bit of visual interest with height and levels. This is a gorgeous idea for eclectic or romantic design and décor, and also for this seasons hot trend, the oriental feminine look.
If you don’t want to have actual bird cages in your home, then another option is to look for a fun, oriental or vintage looking wall paper like the one featured in the picture below to place on your walls. You can also think about vinyl wall decals of bird cages or bird cage silhouettes for the design and décor of your home as these as a particularly hot décor idea at the moment too!
Bird cages are a hot décor idea for children’s rooms because they serve a multifunctional purpose. Firstly, you can hang or place them to create a beautiful design and décor look around the room, but just as importantly, you can use them to store things in too! For little girls you can create a fairy garden in the cage, or a home for her favourite toys. For boys it becomes the perfect storage unit for stuffed zoo animals or naughty monsters! And all you need to do is give the bird cage a lick of paint to bring it in to suite your child’s current room décor. And if you don’t want to use actual bird cages, you can also always make some really cute ones out of paper to hang in your child’s room just as décor.
