You can find a wide selection of picture frames online at Royal Design. They will suit every style and taste, from sleek and sophisticated metal to traditional wood such as oak. Placing them is a personal choice, so get creative in your design! You do not only have to hang picture frames on the wall. Try free-standing them on tables and shelves or even leaning larger ones against the wall.
Choosing your frame depends on several factors, with your image being the first consideration. Too heavy a frame could overwhelm and detract from the image. Think about the overall impression your chosen picture frames will make. Do you want them to complement your decor, form a contrast or make a statement?
When selecting your frame, think about the material you want. While glass picture frames are attractive, they can make your piece heavy to hand, and of course, they are not shatterproof. These work better for framing smaller pictures and photos.
If you are looking for a frame for a piece of modern art, maybe an abstract or black and white photo, then black metal works very well. They look sharp and sophisticated. Wood tends to bring warmth to an image—wooden frames lean towards providing a more elegant setting. However, you can use thicker designs for a more rustic style.
Mixing and matching your framed pictures can make a super gallery wall. Or for similar prints, try pairing them but keep to the same shape. Rectangular and square picture frames are an eye-catching feature. Circular styles work better independently. Use large picture frames as a focal point or choose smaller sizes for a gallery wall.
