Consider an Attachable Light

In a dark room or a gallery, a picture light that attaches to the top of the frame and shines down on your art might be a good choice.   You should measure the width of the picture and use a light about half the size. The shade over the light (usually metal) is available in may colors and designs. There are many finishes on the bulb from which to choose. You can select anything from frosted to direct light, including different colors. Many lights can be installed by you, but we recommend using a professional frame shop to make sure no damage, like a scratch, occurs. Florida Frame House and Gallery can help you with all your lighting choices and installation.

Poor Matting is Dangerous to Your Artwork

Improper matting can damage your art. Florida Frame House and Gallery recommends acid-free conservation board. This matboard is an alfa cellulose matboard made of pristine virgin fibers. It is acid-free and lignin-free with consistent color, fade and bleed resistance. Its core color is bright white and is recommended for use with original artwork, limited editions, and other valuable or valued artworks. Acid-free conservation board contains no wood pulp, which can “burn” paper, causing it to turn brown or brittle and fall apart.

Most museum curators recommend using acid-free conservation board.

Selecting Glass for Your Framing

Glazing is important when it comes to the protection of your framed piece.

What is is glazing? Glazing is the protective covering used within a picture frame that covers your art. It can be glass or acrylic. We suggest you select Conservation Grade glazing to protect your artwork or anything you would like framed.

A professional custom framing expert offers many framing options to meet your needs and provide a finished piece that has both superior protection and a great looks.

Bring Your Interior Designer Along

Walls, floors, lighting, furniture, and artwork are the tools an interior designer uses to create an atmosphere. A good interior designer can transform your living spaces into a range of settings for different activities. For example, a kitchen or work area of your home may be bright and colorful to promote energy. Conversely, a den or bedroom could have a soft feel with muted colors to encourage relaxation. The art you hang in these rooms, including the frames you select, should compliment these goals. A professional gallery and framing shop can guide you through your decisions by offer a range of art pieces for sale and accompanying frames to suit your objectives. So, bring your interior designer along on your gallery and framing shop visit so all your desires can be coordinated for maximum satisfaction.

Framing a Photograph

Two good reasons for framing a photograph are Ease of Viewing and Protection.

First, select a photograph that is worthy of viewing. For example, an interesting landscape or landmark might be good choice for a public area of your home or business. More personal photographs such as children or a family vacation might be better in a den or bedroom to re-live intimate memories.

The frame you select can facilitate Ease of Viewing by drawing in an observer’s attention. Also, the frame should compliment the room setting or architecture. Understand your light source to avoid any reflections off the frame. A custom framing shop can help you pick the proper selection by trying out various samples.

Protection is important so the photograph doesn’t fade over time. Non—glare glass can help. Don’t have the photograph press against the glass because the two might fuse eventually. Use spacers to keep a small distance between the picture and the glass. Also, having the photograph glued on a Mat with a proper adhesive should keep it from wrinkling in the future.

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.
