Looking for photo frame ideas that help you display your photo art? Whether you prefer the modern look of frameless frames, the simplicity of minimal frames or the over the top boldness of boho frames, there is sure to be a framing option that suits your preferences.
Back in the old days, framing was fairly limited. Most photographs would be displayed in a gilded frame, either on a wall or on a mantel. These days, we are lucky enough to have a huge variety of options. This means that displaying your favourite photos and art has never been easier.
Photo Frame Ideas to Try
In this blog post, we take a look at some of the top modern framing ideas. Some of the most effective ways to display your photos include these photo frame ideas…
Frameless Photo Frames
Whether you opt for a glass or acrylic frameless frame, a block mounted photograph or even something like a clipboard or peg display, you don’t have to even frame photographs to display them. This option is ideal for those who don’t like the look of conventional frames. Frameless frames use sheets of glass or acrylic that sandwich the image securely. Block mounting can be done on plywood or on canvas, while peg boards or clipboards are the easiest of all. The latter allows you to change images as often as you like, simply and quickly.
Minimal Photo Frames
Minimal frames blend into the wall on which they are placed, or into the background or colour of the photograph or artwork. The aim here is to provide a frame that is subtle and unobtrusive, allowing the photo to shine through. Photo frame ideas for this type of frame includes a simple black or white frame, thin wooden frame or a stylish yet delicate metallic frame. As a general rule of thumb, if the frame is too thick, too bright or generally very visible against the image you are framing, you have moved away from minimal to something more boho or dramatic.
Boho Photo Frames
These include modern colourful frames, shadow box frames and baroque or ornate frames that are just as much of a centerpiece as the photo itself (if not more so). If you have a love for all things vintage, or you are aiming to inject a touch of bohemian style to your room, then a boho style frame would be a good choice. You can literally go wild with this frame – opt for bold colours, unique details and anything that is over the top. There’s not such thing as too much where this type of frame is concerned.
