What are the different types of frames?

41 different style of frames for you to choose from

There are a number of different types of frames to choose from. And this is a good thing too, considering there are a number of different looks that people like to go for when they are decorating an area. Knowing the different styles there are makes it a bit easier to know what look will best compliment the decor of the area you’re designing.

Modern Frame

The Modern frame is perfect for those who would like their room to have a minimalist look to it. As well as have a frame that accentuates the art that it’s containing. These frames are perfect for any industrial-urban area.

A good way to style these hair frames is to pair two large ones together, or to mix and match the two similar frames together. Just because you may have incorporated other metal finishes into the design of your place doesn’t mean that the metal of the frames has to be identical. Switching it up sometimes is a good thing.

Gallery Frame

Gallery Frames incorporate a mat, which gives them an elevated frame in frame effect that one may see in an installation involving photography in a museum. These types of frames are mainly used for one’s most prized photos. Putting together a collection of these types of photo frames works wonders for giving off an impactful look; and don’t forget that you can always put together different finishes into the collection. Not only that but, they can also give off a sophisticated look that helps tie different sections of the room together.

Photo Holders

You don’t only have to use frames to display your photos. Photo holders are incredibly versatile, functional and are great ways to display the photos you’d like to look at.

Tabletop frames

Tabletop frames are the go to for those who would like their home to look more like a home. These frames have both functionality and a modern design. You want to put tabletop frames in a place where you would like to infuse a bit of functionality into. These frames are great for places such as mantles, tables, shelves or as finishing pieces for art walls. You only want to use one of these so as not to make the spot they’re going on look cluttered.

Canvas Prints

The Canvas Print takes the meaning of dimension to a whole other level by stretching canvas onto an internal frame. These frames are a great departure from the regular and feature high quality cotton blends that boast great detail and reproduction of color. They also give off unique visual effect much different from that of anything else on the market. If you want a photo to pop to visitors at first glance, this is the frame for you. They’re great for things such as baby and wedding photos. And remember, these should always be the focal point of the room.

Deep set frames

The Deep Set frame is very much similar to the Shadow Box except that it uses a thicker mat and a deeper frame to make an individual focus morso on the image than on the frame itself. This type of frame is perfect for travel or landscape photos. The added layers of the frame draws the person looking at the photo into the image itself, almost mesmerizing them. For help making the image pop, simply set this on a shelf or mantle. You may also want to stagger the way other decor is set to help make this frame stand out.

Floating Frame

Floating frames make use of an acrylic or clear glass instead of a mat to make it seem like the photo used is quite literally floating on the wall. These types of frames are best used for that “One” photo. This type of frame is supposed to be able to stand on its own as a centerpiece - it will help turn a blank wall into a piece of art.
