Here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we are big believers in the power of custom frames. While some people think that the frame you put a photo or painting in is an afterthought at best, our team knows that the frame is a key part of its overall visual impact. If you’re an art collector, then the right frame will show off your new piece in its best light, heightening the overall effect. If you’re an artist, displaying your work in high-quality frames shows that you stand behind your creation and value the work you put into making it. Of course, the best frames are always custom frames, and in this article, we’ll go over how custom frames will take your art to the next level.
- Create Harmony- One way that custom frames elevate your art is by allowing you to create harmony, both between the piece and the frame, and between the framed piece and the rest of the room. You can choose mat and frame colors that complement the artwork, pick up tones in the rest of the décor, use texture or other details that work with both, etc. If you’re not sure how best to do this, our team here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design is here to give you our expert advice and recommendations.
- Create Contrast- On the other hand, having everything match too closely would make the design boring. To avoid this, contrast is required. If your art piece already shares many visual similarities with the rest of the décor, you can use a contrasting frame to make it stand out from its surroundings. You can introduce a pop of color, a new material, an interesting texture, and more. Again, our experts here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design can offer suggestions on how best to achieve the look you’re going for, and help you create the perfect custom frames for your tastes.
- Create Depth- Another thing that custom frames can give your artwork is depth. To show off artwork to the best effect, you need to consider is the visual depth at which it will be displayed. Will the piece look better flat against the wall, or do you want to use layers of matting to give it some more interest? Our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design has years of experience creating custom frames for just about any kind of display, so we can help you create the perfect level of depth to suit your piece.
