3 Tips for Choosing the Right Custom Framing for Your Art, Branford Center, Connecticut

Don’t let your favorite photographs and artwork sit in boxes where no one can see them. Custom framing is the perfect way to show off your beautiful collection. If you’re not sure where to start with shapes, colors, and styles, read on to learn three tips from North Light Gallery & Framing in Branford, CT, for choosing the perfect frames for your home.

How to Choose the Right Custom Framing for Your Art

1. Consider Your Interior Design

Your art and custom framing should be a unique part of your home, while still fitting in with your current decor. If you have a modern house, for example, you may opt for bold colors and angular shapes. More Victorian-style interiors may call for gilded gold frames with intricate details. 

2. Take Inspiration From the Art

3. Don’t Forget Depth

You can add depth to your wall gallery with thicker frames. Also, consider using mats to further frame the images with colors and blank spaces. Both these methods help direct the viewer's eye to the artwork, drawing them in to enjoy your gallery.

Custom framing can turn a chaotic mix of art and photos into a cohesive gallery that fits in your home. You can work with a professional to create the perfect frames for individual pieces as well as a collection.
