Frame Those Photos

in Frame

Beautiful photos need beautiful frames that don't overpower or overshadow the picture, but enhance its qualities and improve the overall look. Most photographers also offer framing services, even if you don't employ them to be your photographer. There are many various kinds of photo frames available. Let's look at some of them.

Why do I need a Photo Frame?

• They add a charm and an aesthetic quality to the existing beauty of the photo.
• They preserve the photo and keep them in good conditions over the years. A well preserved photo in a frame can last for hundreds of years, as have the paintings of yester years.
• Frames give you a medium to display your photos. You cannot have people going through a photo album every time. Many people like to have pictures around the house so they can see their loved ones and family.
• An eye catching photo frame is a great decorative idea. It can add a splash of colour to a dull room or add a touch of elegance.

Can I give a Photo Frame as a gift?

Yes, you definitely can give a photo frame as a gift to anyone and everyone. Some occasions when you can give a frame as a gift:

• Birthdays are a good idea for gifting a photo frame. For kids you can find colourful and funky photo frames.
• Wedding gifts are also a good idea. You can give a beautiful silver or handcrafted frame, which is expensive and looks it, too.
• Anniversaries.
• Baby showers.
• Mother's or Father's Days.
• House warming.

What are the different kinds of frames I can use?

Frames are available in many different kinds of materials, which give very different looks. Also, the photo frame should be chosen depending upon the style of the picture.

Some different kinds of Photo Frames:

Silver: Silver is a beautiful white metal that can be polished bright or can have an antique look if it is oxidised. Silver frames are a great option as a wedding or anniversary gift. They go very well with classic pictures, but that does not mean that they don't compliment any other picture.

Wood: Wood can be a simple smooth frame or it can be a more expensive style, like hand carved. If wooden frames suit the theme of your house, then it is a very good option as wooden frames are very neutral and compliment any colour scheme.

Acrylic: Acrylic is a sort of plastic that can be made in many different colours. They are great if you get them in a dark shade, like dark brown or black, and use these frames to hang pictures on the wall. It is a sturdy material and is very durable too.

Glass: Yes, glass frames are also available, but of course they are made of thick glass, so they are less prone to damage.

Steel: Steel frames give you a similar look like the silver frame, but are much more inexpensive. You can get them in carved plain styles, which look very flattering in your home.
