3 Tips for Interior Designers: Framing Art to Match Your Vision

interior designers

As an interior designer, you understand the critical role that artwork can play in bringing a space to life and creating a cohesive interior design. Whether it’s a painting, photograph, or something else entirely, art can evoke emotions in the viewer and tie together the overall look of a room. However, selecting the perfect frames for the large quantity of artwork that you work with can sometimes be a daunting task. That’s where we come in! Here are some of our best tips for interior designers for framing art to match a specific vision.

Consider the Style and the Theme

Before selecting a frame, interior designers should consider the style and theme of the artwork as well as the overall design concept of the space. Is the piece of artwork more traditional, modern, or eccentric? Does the artwork have a specific theme or color palette? Will it be displayed alongside other photographs or paintings in a room? Choosing a frame that complements the style and theme of the artwork will help create a cohesive look that enhances the overall finished space.

Selecting the Right Materials

When it comes to custom framing, the materials chosen can make a significant impact on the final look of the artwork. As you design for clients, choose high-quality materials that not only enhance the appearance of the artwork but also provide longevity. We can help you choose from a variety of materials like wood and metal while considering a variety of factors, like the budget and any durability requirements for the piece.

Think About Proportions When Choosing the Frame and Mat

Proper proportions are essential when framing any piece of artwork to ensure that it meshes well with the rest of the room and any other design elements. You should also consider the size of the artwork in relation to the size of the frame and the surrounding space. A large, bold frame may distract from a smaller or more subtle piece of art, while a delicate frame may get lost when viewing a larger piece. Finding the right balance is key.
