While today’s camera technology has made it easy to carry around a personal photo gallery in your pocket, there are still some photos that you’ll want to print out and display. When it comes to displaying any photo or work of art, your choice of frame matters. As you can guess from our name, we at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design are experts in framing, and in this article, we’ll provide some key tips on how to choose the right frame for your photos.
- Consider the Material. The first thing you should think about when selecting frames is their material. At Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we offer a wide range of frames in both metal and wood, and we can help you pick out the right option for your piece. If you are going for a more traditional look, we recommend sticking to classic wooden frames, while metal frames often work better for more modern pieces.
- Consider Color. Another important thing to keep in mind when selecting frames for your photos is their color. You can stick to a classic black frame for a neutral look, or you can use the color of the frame to bring out the colors in the photo itself. Depending on the subject of the photo and its color palette, you may want to choose a frame in a similar color to emphasize that unity or choose a contrasting color to make the photo pop.
- Consider Mats. Lastly, we at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design encourage you to consider adding a mat board to your frame to further enhance your display. Not only do mat boards help keep your photos in place and hide rough edges, they also provide another opportunity for customization and creativity. Our experts can help you select the best mats to set your photos off to their best effect and ensure that they command the attention they deserve.
