How To Choose Wooden Picture Frames - Articles Surfing

Wooden picture frames are some of the most common types of picture frames on the market. They often provide you with a unique look, because of the details in the wood's grain. They are also some of the most traditional of styles in wooden picture frames. Although you may not realize it, though, there are different qualities and elements that you do need to take into consideration in selecting wooden frames. It starts with knowing what you are dealing with.

For starters, select wooden picture frames that offer some character. In wood products, a grain can be seen. As long as the wood has not been heavily painted, you should be able to see a grain. When you select the type of wood grain that you enjoy, it makes for a better overall purchase. Next, look for the coloring that yo like. If you will be purchasing pre stained wood, this can be somewhat limiting. But, if you purchase a frame that is raw wood, you can stain it virtually any color that you would like to. Staining frames helps to bring out the wood's character while painting them hides this quality.

You also want to look at how well the picture frame has been put together. To know this, look at the corners. Are they flush? Are they cut neatly? Nails and staples are the most common ways to put frames together, but you also want to make sure that those applications aren't overly noticeable.

Finally, select the picture frame that is the right size and dimension for you. Many do have a lot of other character details you can consider, and you should. Wooden pieces can be added with ornate decorations. Select what works well in your home or for the look you are after. Wooden picture frames are a great investment when you take the time to purchase real quality.
