When it comes to choosing a piece of art to put up in your home, it’s fair to say that the majority of effort goes into selecting the picture, painting, sketch or whatever other kind of art you are interested in. However, something that the team here at the Sunshine Coast Art & Framing Gallery want everyone to know is that there is another important element, and that is the frame!
No matter what piece of art you end up choosing for your wall, you can add another element of quality and personality with the perfect frame. It might not be the central focus when up on the wall, but a great frame really can make a whole host of difference. Here are some of the most common and popular frame styles that you might want to consider.
Probably the most contemporary choice, a floating frame has your art encased under glass but positioned slightly away from the backboard to make it appear as though it is suspended and floating. Something to take note of when considering a floating frame is that it doesn’t tend to be a very visually appropriate choice for art that has a border around the image.
If you want your frame to almost be as visually impressive as the art it contains, then a box frame is a good choice. The art is set right back towards the rear backboard, and the effect that it creates is one of a precious case that is holding art cargo! The deeper set aesthetic of a box frame can be really visually impressive, especially in a minimalist setting.
If you are only interested in your art piece and just want a frame that is going to provide a protective layer and nothing else, then a standard frame is the way to go. You can opt for a simple border or even a borderless glass frame, whatever style you prefer and whatever style you think is going to be the most unassuming when put up against your chosen art.
