Tips For Choosing A Frame:
Our colour options might have given you the guideline that will give you an insight into what sort of frame will set well with your pictures, but we are sharing some additional tips here as well. Most of the people overemphasise on matching colours of their photos with their frame colours. Do not do that. The better choice will be to consider the overall tone of your image first and then go for the frame. Similarly, if your have a very simple and casual sort of art that you want to put up, choose a lighter frame. The darker ones are meant for those pieces that are very formal and elegant. Another important thing and a mistake that people commit is that they put an emphasis on matching the colour of their picture with the colour of their frame. You should never do that. Your major goal should be choosing a frame that matches the colour of your room and not the picture. It isn’t even about the match, it is about what compliments the overall outlook and gives a spark. So, always, always remember where that frame is going before you make the purchase. In the end, you do not want to regret purchasing a frame that doesn’t sit well with your interior. Lastly, if you are framing your own artwork, it is mandatory that the colour you choose isn’t a lot similar to your wall colour. Otherwise, it won’t stand out.
Alternative Frame Options:
If you don’t want to go with the conventional picture framing option, you can choose the alternative ones as well. You can turn your pictures into prints and then use them to adorn any place you want. There are canvas prints that are printed onto canvas, turning your photograph into an absolute piece of art. Similar to them are metal prints, which use metal panels to have your pictures printed. They make the best wall mounting. In the end, it depends on what sort of taste you have and just choose accordingly to that.
