How to Choose the Right Picture Frames

At Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we know that a picture frame can have a big impact on the overall look of a piece of art. A great frame can elevate a piece and make it truly shine, while an ill-suiting frame can diminish a piece or make it fade into the background. Whether it’s fine art or family photos, your pictures deserve frames that show them off to their best effect. To help you create the best display for your art, we have put together this guide on how to choose the right picture frames.

how to choose the right picture frames

  • Wood- Natural wood frames lend a warm and classic feel to piece of art. Available in a range of colors, wood picture frames provide plenty of design choices to complement or contrast with your images. Photos with many warm tones (like red and orange) pair well with frames of dark woods such as mahogany or walnut, while those with cooler tones (like blue and purple) are better served by lighter woods like ash or pine.
  • Metallic- Metallic picture frames give your photos a classy look, making them a great way to display photos of formal occasions. They are also great for highlighting beautiful landscapes, or for showing off your family portraits.
  • Black or White- Picture frames in solid black or white are a great way to give your photos a modern, streamlined appearance. Both options can really bring out the inherent beauty of your photos, though the effects they create are slightly different. Black picture frames convey elegance and formality, while white ones give a more relaxed and casual vibe.
