Choosing the Perfect Picture Frame for Your Artwork: Material, Color, Style, and More

Published Date : 12th Jan 2023


When it comes to displaying artwork, the right picture frame can make all the difference. A well-chosen frame can enhance the overall look of a piece and draw attention to the details. Here are a few things to consider when selecting the best frame for your artwork:

  1. Material
  2. Color
  3. Style
  4. Size
  5. Glass
  6. Matting


Picture frames come in a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and plastic. Wooden frames offer a traditional and classic look and are the only frames we offer due to their high-quality materials and durability. All of our frames are made in the USA and are custom to order.


The color of the frame should complement the artwork rather than clash with it. A neutral color like black frames or white frames can work well with a wide range of pieces, but you can also choose a color that picks up on an accent hue in the artwork. Check out our Picture Frame Collection where we offer the largest online collection of different frame styles.

The style of the frame should match the artwork and the overall aesthetic of the room. For example, an ornate gold frame would be well suited to an old master painting, while a simple, sleek frame would work better with a contemporary piece.


Typically the size of the frame should be proportionate to the artwork, but with Art To Frames, you can customize your mat size to provide a striking look for artwork small or large. With our image size function, you can easily enter the exact dimensions of your artwork for a custom frame made to tell your story. When you frame on our website we measure down to an 1/8th of an inch to insure your artwork fits perfectly into your frame.


Different types of glass can also affect the final look of the artwork. Regular glass is one of the most affordable options, but it can cause glare and reflections. Our Tru-Vue UV-protective glass is a better choice for protecting art from sun damage, and our Tru-Vue Museum Glass is our best glass offering.


If you have a piece of art with multiple colors or figures, the matting can help you to enhance the art by highlighting certain parts of it. Mats create a visual space around your artwork and provide long-term protection for your artwork or photograph. We offer the largest online mat collection and allow you to customize your mat to fit your framing project's vision.


In summary, the best picture frame for your artwork or photography is one that complements the piece in terms of material, color, style, size, glass, and matting. By considering these factors, you can create a beautiful and cohesive display for your artwork. Click below and get your custom frame delivered straight to your door!
