Things to Consider When Framing Your Family’s Portraits
Framing your family portraits is the perfect way to showcase special memories and add a personal touch to your home decor. Things to consider when framing your family portraits:
- Frame Style: Choose a frame style that complements both the portraits and your home decor. Consider the overall aesthetic you want to achieve, whether it’s classic, modern, rustic, or eclectic.
- Frame Material: My frames come in beautifully finished wood, there are classic, minimal and a little more ornate. With heavier or slimmer frame mold width.
- Frame Color and Finish: Consider the color and finish of the frame to coordinate with the colors in the portraits and the surrounding environment. The most popular being, off white, black or white.
- Arrange in a Gallery Wall: If you have multiple family portraits, consider creating a gallery wall to display them together. Arrange the frames in a visually pleasing layout, such as a grid or asymmetrical arrangement, and vary the sizes and shapes for added interest.
- Matting: Matting adds depth and visual interest to framed portraits. Choose a mat color that enhances the colors in the photos and provides contrast with the frame. Acid-free mats are best for long-term preservation.
- Glass Type: You can also opt for UV-protective glass to prevent fading and damage to your portraits caused by sunlight exposure.
- Mounting Method: My framed portraits are beautifully and securely mounted within the frame to prevent shifting or damage over time.
- Frame Size: Select frame sizes that are proportionate to the portraits and the space where they’ll be displayed. Consider leaving some breathing room around the photos for visual appeal.
- Personal Preferences: Ultimately, consider your own tastes and preferences when making framing decisions. Your family portraits should reflect your personality and style.
