Picking a Perfect Picture Frame

Picking a perfect picture frame!

What is a picture frame? Just a box - four pieces of wood or metal holding a picture on a wall?

Absolutely not!

The right picture frame can create a perfect package, complementing what’s inside the frame - a photo, poster, artwork or family treasure.

Have a picture that you love? It is amazing how stunning it can look in the right frame! On the flip side, the wrong frame job can spoil a lovely photo or work of art.

A professional framer can show you a wide variety of interesting frame styles and finishes to creatively show off photos and prints, as well as shadow boxes for three-dimensional items such as heirlooms, awards and medals.

Spoilt for choice? Finding the right frame to complement the interior design of your home or office can be difficult. Let your professional picture framer guide you through the maze of options:

• Wood

Wood moulding is available in a variety of styles and finishes. A professional framer will help you select the right one for your décor and custom make a frame that is just the right size for your framing project.

• Metals

Metal frames have come a long way from the early days when only a couple of styles were available. There are a wide range of metal mouldings in a number of finishes to fit most any interior.

• Plastic

The most common plastic frame materials are extruded polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These are available in a wide variety of profiles and finishes and, without close examination, could pass for wood.

Picture frames can be sleek and modern, ornate and traditional, or anything in between!

Frames give a dynamic boost to your home décor - add that special touch by selecting from all of the fabulous picture frames that are available. Allow frames to create beauty for your home for a lifetime.

Look for the purple and white Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA) member decal on a shop door or window!
