How to Use Floating Frames

Here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we want to help you show off all your photos and artwork to their best effect. Different pieces work best with different types of frames, and our team is here to provide expert recommendations on what frame will work best with each item that you want to display. One option that you may want to consider is our floating frames. A floating frame is designed for artwork painted (or printed) on canvas, and it creates the illusion that the piece is floating inside the sides of the frame without touching them.  In this article, we’ll go over more about how best to use floating frames to help you achieve the look you want.

How to Use Floating Frames

  • In order to achieve the desired effect, it’s important to get your floating frames sized correctly. Our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design has the right experience to help you select the right frame options for your piece, and you can count on us to create the perfect custom frame to display it. When it comes to floating frames, we know exactly how much space to leave around the edges of your canvas to create the signature “moat” between the canvas and the frame itself.
  • Printing and Mounting Canvas. If you like the idea of floating frames but don’t have any canvas paintings to put in one, our team can help. We can print any of your photos on canvas, including mounting the fabric to the stretcher frame. Our goal is to help you create the beautiful display piece you deserve, and we have the right skills and equipment to tackle this step of the process.
  • In our experience here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, floating frames are a great way to give any work of art an air of elegance, creating the same commanding presence as in a fine art gallery. They are an effective way to infuse a sense of luxury and timelessness into any space, and we encourage you to give them a try.
