How to choose a frame

You may be wondering how to choose a frame that provides a great display for your artwork and walls. Mahoneys Picture Frames Online offer a few friendly tips on how to choose a frame.

When it comes to displaying a photograph or work of art, choosing the right frame can make or break it. Think of the frame as the finishing touch, you want something that won’t dominate the photograph or art, but will compliment and enhance it.

Have a think about the style of art that you want to frame. For example, plain frames tend to work better with busy abstract and modern art. Traditional frames work well with landscapes, and ornate frames compliment period pieces. Look at the colours in your image and ensure not to choose anything that would clash with or overwhelm these colours. Ultimately, the key is to ensure that in the end your image takes centre stage.
