Once you have decided to frame a picture, it is time to choose the best frame for the job. The frame is designed to protect and enhance your pictures or artwork as well to assist you in hanging pictures on the wall, and there are a few tips to keep in mind as you are selecting the right picture frame. It is important to choose the best color and material, to determine if you want a mat board, and to decide if you need a custom frame. When you consider these factors, you will end up with the best frame for your money—and Frame Destination can help.
Choose the Right Color and Material
The frames available through Frame Destination come in metal and wood. You can choose between brown, black, white, and silver to accentuate your picture properly. When choosing the materials of the frame as well as the colors, take into consideration the rest of the décor the frame will be put next to as well as the picture you are putting inside of it. Contrasting a light picture with a dark frame can create a nice visual effect. However, if all of the frames on your wall are black, having a white frame may not be the best solution.
Choose Whether You Want a Mat Board
Inside of the frame, you may want to have a mat board to further frame the picture. This is the border surrounding the picture inside of the frame that adds a space in between the frame itself and your picture. Using a mat board can also help keep your picture in place or hide rough edges you may not want to display. If you do choose to use a mat board with your picture, this will need to be taken into consideration as you are choosing the size of your frame. The size needs to include the size of your picture as well as the additional border the mat board adds. At Frame Destination, there are over 80 different mat board sizes to help you get just the right size for your picture.
Is a Custom Frame Necessary?
If you have a picture that is not a standard size, you may need to purchase a custom frame rather than a standard one. When you purchase your frame at Frame Destination, you can choose the exact frame size you need. Just take the measurements of the picture, decide whether you want to have a mat, and provide the necessary measurements to get the exact frame size you need. If you have tried to purchase a standard size frame to save money and you are not able to display part of the picture, or if the picture looks small inside of the frame, it is time to consider purchasing a custom frame instead. After all, the whole point of framing a picture is to get people to look at it. Make sure you are proud of what they see.
