Framing Guidelines

Framing Guidline 1

Neutral colored mats, such as greys and tans, are a safe and simple way to make any framed piece stand out, without drawing attention away from the art.

Framing Guideline 2

A weighted bottom adds an elegance and sophistication to any piece, while giving it a truly custom look (even with a simple white mat).

Framing Guideline 3

An oversized mat is the easiest way to make a big impact with a small piece of art.

Framing Guideline 4

Double white mat - an easy and affordable way to make your piece look more expensive and substantial.

Framing Guideline 6

A frame without a mat provides a more modern, minimalist look.

How to Use a Double Mat

Choosing mats that are two different shades of the same color is a really easy way to pick a great-looking double mat. For example, having a light blue top mat and a dark blue bottom mat.

Double Mat Example

Colors that look good together in real life (red/blue, green/blue, purple/green) will look good together as a double mat.

Neutral mat

A neutral top mat (white/grey) with a colorful bottom mat is an easy way to add a splash of color and it focuses attention in on the artwork.
