One of the most aesthetic aspects of the interior décor of a residence, office and commercial premise are the picture frames. These need not only contain the photographs of people, but also paintings and posters. In fact, very rarely would one come across any place without a single photo frame either hung on the wall or placed on a table or a shelf.

Picture frames add to the aesthetics of the interiors. A painting or photograph just simply pasted on the wall would probably not attract as much attention as it would when placed in a frame. The important aspect to keep in mind is the type of frame to be used. Sometimes people get carried away by the beautifully carved frames that actually do not go with the painting or photograph.

When purchasing photo frames it is vital to keep a few pointers in mind to ensure that you have purchased the right one.

  • The frame should blend with the picture or photograph
  • The color of the frame should match with the color of the walls
  • The theme of the frame should fit in with the rest of the décor of the interiors. For instant, with modern furniture an archaic looking frame would not blend.
  • The size of the frame should be in proportion to the size of the room. This guidance can be provided by interior designers and photo frame dealers
  • The shape of the frame should be in keeping with the general shape of the room. For instance, a square room would usually look nice with square picture frames.
  • The size of the frame should be measured in accordance to the size of the picture or photo. Ideally you should carry it to the frame dealer to ensure that it is of the required size.

It is always suggested to get some professional advice before purchasing the picture frames for your interiors. After all you do not want anyone to miss the picture for the frame or vice versa!
