Light Wood Picture Frames

Light Wood Picture Frames Made to Measure

The Scandinavian influence on interior design revolutionised homes in the mid-20th Century, and it remains one of the most enduring trends. One reason for this is its simplicity, elegance and beauty, especially the use of a range of lighter wood tones.

Selecting a light wood picture frame allows you to take advantage of all these positive elements of classic Nordic design, as well as showcasing your artwork in a way which really allows it to shine.

Some Inspiration for Your Light Wood Picture Frames

If your vision is of bright, open spaces and cool stylishness, then complementing caned, blonde wood furniture with a light wood frame is ideal for a picture which really captures that vibe.

Light wood frames are perfect for images containing the cooler blue, green or lavender tones often found in pictures of nature, especially water. Ash and pine frames can work especially well in interiors such as these. But don’t feel that you can only hang a light wood picture frame in a minimalist penthouse apartment; the growing trend for lighter décor in rustic farmhouse settings means that light wood frames can work equally as well there.

A light wood frame is also a great choice for casual, candid photos. A lighter frame emphasises the darkness in the image, so black and white photos, displayed in a light wood frame, hung upon a white, or off-white wall, look stunning. If you have a favourite impromptu family shot which deserves a place on the wall, then a light wood frame can help to perfectly capture the moment.

By using our online frame builder tool, you are in control of the design process from the beginning. We will be available to offer advice, should you need it, making use of our three decades of frame building experience.

We will then craft your made to measure picture frame to your exact specifications in one of our own workshops (we have one in Lancashire and one in Manchester).

All the materials we use are of the highest quality. We never mass-produce anything, and we never compromise on quality: as a family owned and run business, our reputation for excellence is important to us. This goes as far as the care we take in packing your frame, ensuring that it arrives with you in the same perfect condition it left our workshop. We are passionate about the frames we make, and we are sure you will be too.

Our light wood frames are custom made to your exact specifications.

Please see our measuring guide for frames and mountboard.

Most of our light wood picture frames are made of solid oak, ayous wood, or marant wood.



Yes.  We use clear Perspex as standard, but you have the option to upgrade to anti-reflective Perspex or 2mm acrylic if required.

Due to courier restrictions and the high risk of breakage we do not use glass in online frame orders, unless you wish to collect your order in person from our workshop in Middleton, Manchester.

You can add a custom mount to your custom light wood frame order too if you wish.

We offer a wide range of mount colours.

We use whitecore and blackcore mountboard.

The aperture of the mount will have a bevelled cut with a white or black core which creates a subtle border line.

A light wood frame is a very popular choice for framing  photos, quotes, artwork or memorabilia and looks stylish in any room.  Light wood frames look stylish alongside other frame colour too.

A light wood frame is a timeless choice suitable for a wide range of artwork, colour and size variations.
