What are picture frames used for?
Picture frames have 3 main purposes:
- To protect a picture or photo
- To enhance a picture or photo
- To make pictures or photos easier to display
What size picture frames to buy?
When determining the size, you firstly need to whether or not you want to include a photo mount. Mounts often help your art or photo to stand out, but they can also crop the image if the frame is not sized to accommodate it. Make sure you factor it in when making your purchase; if you opt to go without a mount, your photo or artwork should be the exact size of your frame — you don’t want to have any of the backing showing, or have to trim any of the art itself.
What are floating picture frames?
A floating picture frame displays a whole picture in the centre, whilst giving the illusion that it’s not being touched by the frame. It allows the whole image to be displayed without any of the edges being cropped by a photo mount or frame.
What style photo frames should I look for?
When it comes to style, think about what is going to be inside the wall frame, and make sure the style complements the style of the the art or photograph itself. Consider texture, colours and material. You want your frame and artwork to work well together, so pick one that serves to enhance the art, not detract from its beauty.
What type of photo frame should I buy?
This really depends on the shape, size and type of artwork you want to display. If you have multiple photos or pieces of artwork that you want to display, then multi picture frames might be a good option. There are frames in various shapes and sizes, including A4 picture frames and wooden picture frames, so you’re sure to find the perfect one for your needs.
