How to Choose the Right Frames for Your Art, Branson, Missouri

If you’ve selected a new piece of artwork, choose a frame that will complement the beautiful piece rather than clashing with it. The right frames will protect your artwork and create a cohesive look with the rest of your décor. The picture framing team at V & K Custom Picture Framing in Branson, MO, share their tips for finding the perfect options below. 

A Guide to Choosing Frames

1. Protectionframes

First, choose the right frame style that will provide the protection your artwork needs. An oil or acrylic painting on canvas, for example, is easy to clean so you won’t need to cover the surface with glass. If it hasn’t been attached to a wooden frame so the canvas is stretched flat, you’ll need to do this before framing it. Any artwork on paper, such as a photograph, will need to be better protected. Choose a frame that has a protective glass cover and acid-free backings.

2. Style

The frame should complement the style of the artwork and your home. For example, contemporary artwork looks great with a thin metal frame in white, black, or chrome. Black wood is another simple touch that complements the simplicity of contemporary works. More traditional paintings go well with an ornate gold frame or intricately carved wood.

3. Color

If there are any color themes in your piece of art, think about getting a frame that has the same colors in it. This will tie in with the piece, serving as an extension of the artwork. You could also choose colors that match the rest of the room’s décor to tie the piece in with the rest of the room.
