Floating Picture Frames: Discover a Unique Way to Accent Gallery Wraps

Written by Mark Rogers

Gallery wraps are a great addition to any home or office. Simply hanging the canvas wrap on the wall may create a look that is a bit austere. You can accentuate the look of your canvas wrap when using floating picture frames from Frame Destination. These attractive and easy to use floating frames create the perfect display for any canvas. Best of all, these floating frames make it possible to see the entire surface of the canvas so nothing is missed. The design of the floating frames calls attention to the canvas while leaving an open space between the frame and the canvas, so all the attention is remains on the canvas.

Choosing the Right Frame

The floating frames available from Frame Destination are all hand-assembled and come in a variety of colors and styles. White and black frames are by far the most popular, but steel and brown are available as well. You can choose between the Profile F120 and Profile F140 series frames.

The Profile F120 series includes the following dimensions:floating picture frames

  • Rabbet: 1-15/16"
  • Height: 2-5/16"
  • Face Width: 5/8"
  • Total Width: 1-3/4"
  • Ideal for S140, S260, S320 Stretcher Frames

The Profile F140 series includes the following dimensions:

  • Rabbet: 2-3/16"
  • Height: 2-5/8"
  • Face Width: 7/16"
  • Total Width: 1-3/4"
  • Ideal for S150, S280 Stretcher Frames

As you can see, the F120 is a little thinner but is perfect for presenting the gallery wrap. The choice will depend on which frame looks best with your gallery wrap and how you would like to present it. Your choice may also depend on the width of the gallery wrap itself.

Mounting with Floating Picture Frames

Once you have your floating picture frame, mounting your gallery wrap is a snap. Each package includes the floater frame, 6 offset clips and screws or 12 offset clips and screws, and a hanging kit (wire, screws, screw hole hangers and wall bumpers). In 10 simple steps, you will go from having a gallery wrap and a frame to having a completely presentable floating canvas. The canvas will appear to be floating in the middle of the frame to create a wonderful display for any kind of gallery wrap you might have. Position the floating picture frame with the canvas where you want it in your home or office and you will notice the difference it makes.
