Wood Verses Metal Picture Frames

Selecting the right frame for a painting or photograph is important. A number of factors should be evaluated. Primary considerations are:

  1. Picture Type: For a rustic painting or sepia photograph, a wood frame may be appropriate. For a contemporary painting or colorful photograph, a metal frame may accent the content more effectively.
  2. The Room: If the room where your picture will hang is traditional, a wood frame may look better. For a more modern or high tech environment, a metal frame may be the right choice.
  3. Personal Preference: And, as always, what you like is important. Pick a frame you love because you will be living with it for a long time.

Of course, an important selection task is to take your picture to a custom framing shop and test frame samples with it. Florida Frame House and Gallery can help you select the proper frame that accents your picture and your room’s ambience.
