While the frame is often an afterthought to the purchased art or photography, a poor photo frame can quickly make or break an artistic display. Good photo frames become a part of the arrangement just as much as the actual art itself, so a bad style or size choice can stand out like a sore thumb. More

Here are some things to consider when you look for photo frames:

What size picture frame should I buy?


As you pick your size, you need to decide whether or not you want to include a mat frame. A mat often helps your art or photo stand out, though it can also chop the image if the frame is not sized to accommodate it. Make sure you factor it in when making your purchase; if you opt to go without a mat, your photo or artwork should be the exact size of your frame — you don’t want to have any of the unattractive cardboard backing showing, or have to trim any of the art itself.

What style photo frames should I look for?


When it comes to style, think about what is going to be inside the frame. Make sure the style of the art or photograph complements the style of the frame itself. Consider texture, colors and material. You want your frame and artwork to work well together, so pick a simple frame that serves to enhance the art, not detract from its beauty. Try a black, silver, white or gold option with minimal design details. If you want it to make a statement, try a bright color instead.
