A Helpful Guide to the Many Types of Picture Frames

Gallery Frame

Artifact Uprising Gallery Frame with black and white photo of the city hung in a minimalist setting

Why We Love It

Gallery frames use a mat to create an elevated frame-in-frame effect that you might often see in a museum photography installation. Our real hardwood Gallery Frames bring this same aesthetic, plus a touch of mid-century modern design, to any room in your home.

Perfect For..

Use this frame style as a home for your most prized prints, and pull a few of them together to create the gallery wall you've always wanted. Our Gallery Frames include a premium giclée print — pairing rich, true-to-life color with archival-quality paper — for a museum-worthy collection, right in your own home.

Display Tips

There’s strength in numbers. Try putting together a collection of four or more frames for an impactful look, and don't be afraid to mix and match frame finishes along the way — it creates variation and visual interest. Plus, it's a simple shortcut to the type of subtle yet sophisticated color scheme that ties pieces of the room together.

Modern Frame

Three different sizes of modern metal frames forming an art wall

Why We Love It

The thin profile of modern frame styles allow your photos to take center stage, for a minimalist look that puts the emphasis on the print. Our Modern Metal Frame is a premium-quality option for any space, ready to hang as a centerpiece or in tandem with other pieces in a gallery wall.

Perfect For..

The Modern Metal Frame is tailor-made to add sophistication and modern appeal to minimalist decor themes — but it's at its best in urban-industrial spaces.

Display Tips

Pair two large frames together for a display that wows, or mix and match different sizes of smaller frames, as in the image above. Remember: Simply because you have other metal finishes in your space doesn't mean that your frames have to match them exactly — a little variation goes a long way. (Just take a cue from the example display in our Guide to Wall Art.)

Floating Frame

Artifact Uprising Floating Frame hung above a bed.

Why We Love It

The name says it all: Floating frames use clear glass or acrylic in place of a mat to give your print the effect of floating on the wall. Our Floating Frame uses frame-grade acrylic to add UV protection and subtract weight, and features contemporary brass-coated hardware — understated, one-of-a-kind accents that give it surprising depth and dimension.

Perfect For..

The Floating Frame is for displaying "the one." It gives that unforgettable photo the effect of standing on its own, drawing all the attention exactly where it should be.

Display Tips

Let this statement piece speak for itself as a strong centerpiece — the 30 x 42” frame is our favorite size for turning a blank wall into a work of art.

Deep-Set Frames

Artifact Uprising Deep-Set frames staggered decoratively on a mantle

Why We Love It

Deep-set frames take a page out the book of a shadow box, using a thicker mat and deep frame to draw the eye inward toward the image. This unique profile creates a subtle shadow within, adding dimension where once there was none.

Perfect For..

Our Deep-Set Frame is ideal for showcasing landscape or travel photos that welcome pause. The play between layers draws the viewer into the image, providing momentary escape to far-away settings and stories past.

Display Tips

Try setting this frame style along a mantle or shelf for a layered look. Stagger the positioning of your other decor to enhance the visual effect of the deep-set image. Even better: Since they're not hung on the wall, swapping photos and frames becomes much simpler. Consider doing so seasonally to refresh the feeling of the room.

Canvas Prints

Why We Love It

When it comes to dimension, these prints take things a step further, stretching canvas onto an internal frame that brings the image out from the wall. Our Framed Canvas Print is a tasteful departure from the traditional, featuring a high-quality cotton blend that touts beautiful color and exceptional reproduction of detail. The slight float between the canvas and deep frame makes for a unique visual effect unlike anything else available.

Perfect For..

Use a canvas print for the photos you want to jump out at first glance. It's ideal for documenting the portraits you’ll want pass down for generations – wedding photos, baby photos, and beyond.

Display Tips

Whether hanging on its own or with other types of frames, the canvas print should always be the focal point. If adding it to a gallery wall, hang it in a central position for balanced interplay between your collection of frames.

Tabletop Frames

Why We Love It

It's all in the little details — and tabletop frames go a long way in making a house feel like home. Our Wooden Tabletop Frame pairs a timeless design with a uniquely modern take on functionality: Simply use the detachable metal stand to take your frame from the table to the wall and back again.

Perfect For..

Place a tabletop frame in areas that need a little something extra to infuse personality into the space. These versatile frames are right at home on tables, mantles, shelving, or as the finishing piece in your dream art wall.

Display Tips

Use one frame in tight spaces so as to avoid a cluttered look. However, when you have the space, stagger tabletop frames of different sizes and orientations to create a mini-display that makes the room.

Photo Holders

Why We Love It

Frames aren't the only solution for an elevated photo display: Photo holders are a versatile, functional way to bring a new look to the photos you love. Our family of frame-free Photo Holders combines the best of both storage and display, allowing you to easily interchange your favorite prints.

Perfect For..

Smaller photo holders like our Brass Easel, Walnut Print Stand, and Brass & Wood Display Box are ideal for small spaces such as desks, tables, and mantles. For walls, the Wooden Photo Ledge can bring a welcome twist to any wall, complimenting frames or even filling their void.

Display Tips

Whether hanging on its own or with other types of frames, the canvas print should always be the focal point. If adding it to a gallery wall, hang it in a central position for balanced interplay between your collection of frames.

We all love the look of classic white picture frames, but what is the best one to get? What makes one white frame different from another?

While we, unfortunately, can’t speak to every single white frame on the market, we’re sharing our top three best white frames here at Frame It Easy!

Why White?

White picture frame gallery

First things first, why white?

While there’s nothing saying you have to get a white frame for your project, if you’re unsure about what style or color to go with, white is a popular choice for a few good reasons.

1. It’s Clean

Best white picture frame

From an aesthetic standpoint, white is clean and crisp — it’s also light and airy which makes a space feel brighter and more open. Where darker colors can weigh down a room, lighter colors often elevate it.

When we get into the color psychology of the color white, we note that white often makes us feel like we have a sense of space, making rooms feel larger. It can also symbolize a fresh start, furthering its cleanly connotation.

2. It’s Classic

best white picture frame

In addition to making a space feel light and bright, the color white is also a classic choice. White is simple and neutral, so it can be a great, universal color to compliment whatever colors are in your art, photo, or room.

From a fresh coat of snow to Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress, white is a color with many associations that will never go out of style.

When we think of the most timeless and precious moments — such as weddings or baptisms — white is often connected. It’s also commonly found in nature, meaning our senses are already attuned to it as a calm and comforting hue. (In contrast, bolder, more “unnatural” colors such as hot pink or neon orange draw attention far faster.)

3. It’s Neutral, Yet Provides Contrast

white picture frame

If you don’t want to exaggerate or compliment any specific color in your art or photo, then white is a great blank canvas. It can make all the hues pop — particularly for colorful works — and can also be a great way to lighten up any matboard color you choose.

And while it’s true that white alone is the obvious choice to brighten up your display, there’s a reason black and white is such an impactful combo. If you have dark colors in your print (or room) and you want to provide a good balance, a white picture frame could create an interesting and stark contrast.

Frame Styles

Ok, now that we’ve decided white is the perfect frame color, we need to decide which white picture frames in-particular are best.

While this will vary based on personal preference and desired outcome, we’ll go through some of our favorites.

There are three white frames that we currently offer here at Frame It Easy (both wood and metal), and they might be better served for different looks as they have different measurements and aesthetics.

Here, we’ll discuss our three white frame styles, their specifications, and what they might best be used for.

White Wood (Derby in White/Dayton in White)

Our Derby and Dayton frames are 1 1/4” thick, making them the widest of the white frames that we offer. It’s made from finger-jointed poplar, which is a good low-maintenance framing material.

For this, smaller items are better, as our maximum size for wood frames is 32” X 42”. (So if you want any really big posters framed, and you think white would be the best color, you might want to consider a metal frame.)

The wood frames have more of a homey feeling, too — great for family photos, engagement photos, typographic art prints, or really any general home decor.

This style pairs well with any mat color, especially on the slightly thicker side.

White Metal, Flat (Ashford in White)

93 White Picture Frame

Our Ashford style is 3/8″ thick (just under 1/2″) with a flat front-facing profile.

As with all of our metal style frames, they are powder-coated (which is a process that binds the paint to the aluminum) giving it a glossy, consistent finish. The “Art Size” can be up to 42″x62″ so metal is a particularly great choice for larger works.

The Ashford in white frame has an especially contemporary look, which pairs well with more modern or abstract artworks — the profile is thin enough to provide a subtle border without being overpowering.

White Metal, Round (Hanover in White)

15 White Picture Frame

Our Hanover style is also about 3/8″ thick, but rather than the flat/square edge of the Ashford it instead has a rounded front-facing profile.

This adds a softer touch, perfect for nurseries, baby photos, or colorful artwork.


Now that we’re clear on the nuances between these three frame styles, how about some inspiration for using them?

One of the cleanest and most classic looks around, an picture frame gallery wall is sure to make a statement in your home — especially if you compose it with 10+ frames!

Mix Things Up With A Contrasting Frame

Want to take your gallery to the next level? Or maybe you have one photo/piece of art, in particular, you’d like to draw special attention to. By adding in a single frame of a different color to your white frame collection, it’s sure to provide a unique focal point.

Choose Black & White Photos For Extra Drama

Black and white photos in white picture frames

Earlier we talked about how white makes both a great neutral and contrast, which particularly holds true when your photos are striking on their own. Black and white photos inherently hold more contrast, so pairing one with a stark white photo frame will add a bit of dramatic flair to your gallery.

Pair With White Matting For An Even Brighter Effect

A white picture frame on its own adds that brightness we mentioned, so when you pair it with white matting the effect is multiplied! (Bonus points for double white matting. ?)

Or Add A Colored Mat For Added Dimension

But if the extra brightness may be a little much, you can always pair a white frame with a colored mat to enhance some of your art’s colors.

Final Thoughts

While white picture frames may not be right for every single framing project, it’s clear they’re usually a good bet when looking for something simple, classic, and clean.

From brightening up rich artworks to contrasting impactful black and white photos, a white frame can serve as the perfect base for a variety of home decor looks.

So the next time you’re hoping to frame a special photograph or a meaningful piece of artwork, consider going with white to truly make it shine.

How to Choose the Right Frame for Your Wall Color

Ah, two of the biggest steps for making your place finally feel like home: painting the walls and putting up art. While we can’t help you paint your walls, we can make getting your art framed and up on the walls an easy (and even enjoyable!) process.

To make sure you love the finished look, here are six expert tips for how to ensure your frames complement your interior color palette.

1. Check your undertones: test your walls against a know swatch.

2. White and black frames work almost everywhere.

3. How to pick a white frame for a white wall: match your undertones.

4. Consider other elements: moulding, tile, countertops, furniture.

5. Lean into bright color.

6. Let the art speak for itself.

Tip #1: Check your undertones.

Almost all paint colors are created by mixing two or more colors together, meaning that every shade out there has a mass tone (the color you register the paint as, like beige, taupe, blue, you get it) and an undertone. It’s these undertones that hold the key to a cohesive interior and identifying them will help you choose frames that complement your color palette.

So how do you identify the undertone of your paint color? Compare your paint color to its closest “true color” relative. For example, if your walls are an off-white or cream, use a paint swatch or color wheel to compare it to red, yellow, and blue-based creams. Your closest match will indicate your undertones. Many colors that are often considered cool (like gray and white) actually have warm bases. Testing it against a known swatch is the easiest way determine what undertones you’re working with.  

So, now that you know your undertones, you can choose your frames. As a rule of thumb, we typically pair silver frames with cool undertones and gold frames with warm undertones. For example, a cool pale blue will look lovely with silver frames in a range of tones (from champagne antiqued frames to sleek true silver frames). Meanwhile, any room with a warm undertone will look amazing with gold frames. Think grey walls with a warm green base and antiqued gold frames, or a bright green interior with a bright, orange gold. (Pst… we have a guide to picking the perfect gold frame for your art, and many of the color suggestions apply equally well to walls! Take a peek.)

Tip #2: White and black are the new neutrals.

Simple black and white frames are endlessly versatile. They work with all interior styles, wall colors, and art colors. It’s like magic. That said, depending on the look you’re after, you might have a preference.

For example, we love pairing a sleek white frame and white mat with a bright white wall. It makes the art the true focus of the interior, the frames adding sophisticated dimension and subtle texture. A similar effect can be achieved with black frames on dark walls. For this look, you can opt for a white mat, dark mat, or one of our favorite modern looks: no mat at all. Some designers warn to stay away from black frames on navy walls. We respectfully disagree. Black and navy is tres chic, and instantly gives your walls just the right amount of edge.  

Our most popular white and black frames are Irvine Slim and Mercer Slim respectively, but we have lots of other black and white frame options.

Tip #3: Match your whites.

How to pick a white frame for a white wall: match the undertones. If you pair a white frame with a white wall and it doesn’t look quite right, it’s because the undertones of the whites aren’t aligned. Here’s the secret, if you have an off-white or cream wall, a bright white frame will look too stark against it. Stay away from super sleek white poster frames, and opt instead for a slightly distressed white frame like our Montauk or Monterey frames. 

Similarly, make sure your mat color works with both the frame and your walls. For example, if you opt for a bright white frame (hi, Irvine, Irvine Slim, and Palermo) to complement a true white wall, also choose a white mat.  When you choose “white mat” for your order, our expert designers will actually handpick the perfect shade of white to complement your art and the frame. Same goes for off-white mats.

Tip #4: Go beyond the walls.

While wall color is definitely important (cue this entire article), don’t underestimate how the colors and tones of other design elements may impact your overall interior palette.

Think about your crown and base moulding, any tile backsplash or floors, the tone of wood floors and cabinets, and the colors of your countertops and even furniture!

All these elements can draw out the undertones of your wall color, especially ones that are not immediately apparent.

We’re seeing an overall trend back toward warm neutrals for most design elements. For several years, we noticed lots of cool grays and whites, but now the trends are shifting back to true greens, gray greens, and more yellow based colors.

That means your interior is probably very flexible when it comes to picking the right frame. If you have a warm neutral toned house, you can use the whole gamut of gold frames, champagne toned silver frames (like Newport or Bowery), antique silver frames, unfinished wood frames in a variety of materials (from ash to walnut), black frames, sleek or distressed white frames - basically whatever you want.

Tip #5: Don't be afraid of some color.

You're drawn to color. Whether it's color to complement the already vibrant shades of your wallpaper, or color that shines with the gleaming white backdrop of your white walls, you want your frames to pop. We say go for it. Whatever your style, palate or aesthetic, you'll find what you're looking for in our Travel Collection—a colorful collection inspired by the most Framebridged places in the world. Perfect for travel photography, any photography, or items whose colors you want to accent.

Tip #6: Don’t worry about matching your art to your walls.

Some people might spend ages looking for the perfect art piece for a specific spot in their home, like the perfect blue-toned abstract art print for the guest bedroom. That’s a perfectly good way to approach decorating, but we suggest always choosing art you really love, even if it doesn’t “match” the rest of your interior style because (hint hint) the framing can bridge the gap between art and wall. A frame with the right color undertones can tie together a wall, and the whole room. It’s kind of magical.
