Why Size Matters When it Comes to Frames

Choosing a special frame is the perfect way to showcase your favourite photograph or work of art. However, with so many different sizes and styles of frames to choose from, many people find it rather tricky to choose the perfect frame. If in doubt, it is a good idea to go big and bold, as this will help to draw more attention to your artwork, especially if it is the main focal point in a particular room and you want to make sure that it does not get overlooked.

A2 picture frames are ideal for larger works of art such as posters and paintings and they can serve to bring an instant touch of chic to the item that you wish to display. It is worth noting that there are lots of different materials that can be used for this as well as all of the other frame sizes and the material that is selected may well have just as much impact as the size of the frame itself. While black and white are classic colours, those who dare to be bright and bold may prefer to select gold or silver frames, while bright colours such as red, pink and blue will help to make sure that your favourite work or art is especially eye catching.

Smaller frames such as a5 or a6 are ideal for displaying single photographs on a bedside table or mantelpiece. This type of frame makes a great gift for someone special and many people choose this type of frame if they are planning to present someone with a photograph that captures a memorable event such as a birthday party or a day out.

It is also important to consider the thickness of the frame that you will choose. The thickness of the frame should complement the photo or poster without overpowering it as the image within the frame is the main subject matter and should play a starring role.

Adding a mat board is a great option for people who want to add a little extra style to their photo. A mat board can be inserted around the photo so that it will fit into a much larger frame. Many people opt for a white or cream mat board so that they will not distract from the photo itself, while a splash of colour can be added to a black and white photograph by adding a mat board in a bright and bold colour.

If you have a photo or work of art that is an unusual size or shape, it may be worth considering opting for a custom frame. This is a frame that is custom made to the exact size that you require. Custom frames can be created from virtually any material that you desire including wood, aluminium and plastic and people who go for a custom frame can be sure that their item will be perfectly showcased in the room of their choice.

Poster frames are ideal for very large works of art that you want to use to make a real statement in your room of choice. If you have a photograph that you particularly love, you can have it expanded and then place the photo in a poster frame so that it can be displayed with pride.
