Decorating With Large BirdCages

Copyright (c) 2006-2017

Investing in a large birdcage, especially if you do not have a pet parrot or other large bird, may not have crossed you mind. However, pet birdcages can be used to enhance any room.

For a long while now, smaller birdcages have been used decoratively. White birdcages have been used to collect cards at weddings. Some people have used birdcages with candles to create lanterns or used lighting elements to create lamps. But why should only smaller cages be used to decorate the home?

Because parrot birdcages are large, designers know that the cage will need to be stylish as well as functional. Metal birdcages come in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. Some woodworkers have crafted intricately carved wooden frames, creating beautiful furniture.

As you would before purchasing any other piece of furniture, you should consider the overall motif of the room. A large birdcage can be used to add an outdoorsy feel to a room. A parrot birdcage can, when surrounded by the right plants, create a sense of having a Central American rainforest in your home. Elaborate metal cages can recreate the feel of the Victorian Age.

Whether you are making the choice to bring a bit of the great outdoors inside or aiming to recreate a sense of a long ago time, one of the greatest advantages of decorating with a large bird cage is that the possibilities are seemingly endless.

If the bird cage is in a common area of your home your living room or dining room it can be used to mark the passing of the seasons.

  • In the springtime, everyone wants to add more color. One way of accomplishing this is by weaving silk (or live, if you are able to change them more often) flowers between the metal bars of the parrot cage. Forsythia or cherry blossoms work well for this. Small planters can be attached to the frame or placed inside the cage with blooming plants such as lily of the valley, hyacinths, daffodils or even tulips.
  • During the summer, you can again use floral arrangements to decorate the birdcage, switching to daisies and roses or even passionflower vines. Variegated ivy can be started with just a small end rooted in water and will continue to grow and wrap itself around the metal.
  • As autumn approaches, a sense of warmth can be added by using rich gold, sage, burnt orange and red tones. Sunflowers provide rich gold colors and remain cheerful. Potted mums can be arranged inside of the bird cage, or, for an even bigger change, consider decorating with apples, gourds or bunches of multi-colored Indian corn.
  • With winter comes the holiday season. Poinsettias can be arranged inside the parrot cage, and boughs of pine or holly attached to the wire. Small strands of white lights can be laced through the cage as well. In the kitchen, a decorative large metal birdcage could be used to create a garden of fresh herbs right where you use them.

    However, a parrot birdcage can also be used in a child's bedroom or playroom to create a sort of jungle theme. A bright rainforest themed wallpaper, a lush green carpet, and a parrot bird cage complete with a stuffed parrot on a bar would create a wild room that all of the kids would be talking about.

    And while these ideas may get you started, they are far from being the only ways in which to use a large birdcage in home decorating. With a little imagination you can transform a pet birdcage into a focal point of your home's design.
