Choosing the right frame is a big deal for many people. When you have a special photo or painting, the right frame can enhance and draw attention to it.
There are many different types of frames on the market today. The Wall Art Studios Design Center is home to a wide variety of frame samples: Elegant, antique, modern, wood, metal, Italian, etc. Choosing the right frame for your art, wether it be a photograph or painting is very important.
Determining what type/genre the art is will assist you in deciding what type of frame to purchase. If the art is a professional portrait then you may want to consider a wood or etched frame, something that is somber or elegant. It is also important that you set a limit on how much you want to spend on your frame.
Another consideration is where you will be displaying the frame. Consider the décor of the room and the color scheme. If you are thinking of a colored frame, choose a color that will not only draw attention to the art, but also blend in with the colors of the room. Many people opt for a natural wood because it not only blends well into any décor, it can also be painted or stained should you change your décor.
The room where you will be placing the photograph or painting is a major factor in deciding on which type of frame to use. Choosing a frame for a nursery is very different than choosing one for a living room. A frame with pink and blue may be perfect for a baby’s room, however it does not go well in a living room. It is important that you take into consideration where the frame will be placed.
Choosing the right size frame is critical to any décor. If you have small frames already, choosing a large frame for your photo or painting may seem like it is out of place. Taking the art with you and placing it with different frame samples will assist narrowing your choices.
Choosing a frame for a painting can be a little more tedious, especially if the painting has sentimental value. Paintings of landscapes are beautiful, and you want to display them in a frame that will only enhance the beauty. Elegant frames such as etched wood are the perfect frame for paintings that have a natural beauty all their own.
