How to choose the right frame for the picture?

Rule one and in fact the only thing, there are no rules for framing pictures. You do not need to choose a particular color in the picture so that it matches the mat, the mat in turn complements the color of the frame, and the frame would fit the wallpaper in your customer’s house. We must boldly experiment. And most importantly – choose what you and the customer like.

Second: select the width of the frame. The main criterion is the size of the framed object. Too wide frame “closes” a small picture, and a narrow one will not add anything to a large canvas.

Third: the choice of mat. There are only two parameters that need to be taken into account: color and size. The main rule is to choose a color that would complement, rather than “interrupt” the picture. The size of the mat is usually chosen according to the size of the painting itself, but here some freedom is allowed, until you come to the most optimal combination from the normal width of the mat of 50 mm to the wide of 100 mm.

Fourth: the choice of glass. Plain glass or acrylic? Sometimes plexiglass is placed on large works only because its dimensions are 2 x 3 m, and the maximum dimensions of ordinary glass are only 1.3 x 1.6 m. Or for safety reasons: for children’s rooms or exhibitions. Polished or glareless? Here the choice is yours. Only one practical advice: glare-free glass is preferable if you are going to hang the picture in a brightly lit place.
