Display Your Artwork with Style

7th Feb 2018

If you or a member of your family has created a work of art that you want to display, you will want to make sure you select a frame that shows off the artwork to full effect. Picture frames come in a wide range of different materials as well as sizes and even different shapes and people who have works of art that are especially large such as posters or photographs that have been enlarged may want to take a look at the different styles of poster frames available.

When choosing the style of frame that you will go for, it is a good idea to take the time to consider the place where you will hang your work of art. Different styles of frames are best suited to different rooms in the home and if you are hanging your work of art in a room such as a study or a dining room that prominently features a lot of heavy wooden furniture, you might want to consider opting for a wooden frame that will match the furnishings and help to type the room together. However, if the room features lighter and more modern furniture, then you might prefer a plastic frame that has either a wide or black edge for an extra touch of style and sophistication.

However, frames can also come in all of the colours of the rainbow and you might prefer to choose a brightly coloured frame that ties in with the colour scheme of the room that you work or art will be gracing. If you a planning to hand the artwork in your child’s bedroom, then selecting a frame in their favourite colour could be a nice touch, especially if the artwork is intended as a special present.

Cloth and padded frames are ideal of you want to make sure that the artwork matches the décor in your room of choice. This type of frame is especially modern and will help to give your artwork a softer look that is especially appealing in a bedroom or nursery. Because there are so many different styles of cloth and padded frames to choose from, it is possible to select a frame that matches the colour scheme in your room or is created in contrasting colours for a particularly striking effect.

While rectangular is the most common shape for this type of frame, there is also a number of other shapes to choose from. Oval frames are ideal for people who want to give their artwork an extra modern touch and this will also help to make sure that the work of art becomes the focal point of the room. This style works particularly well with portraits, as it can help to bring the attention inwards and create a softer affect on the subjects.

Of course, you will also want to make sure that you select a frame that works well with the artwork and compliments it without being the dominating feature. Light coloured frames are a good option for muted works of art such as a screen print, while a heavier wooden frame could be the perfect companion for a classic painting or another type of sophisticated work of art.
