Traditional Picture Frames

Traditional Style Picture Frames

A traditional picture frame is the perfect choice for those special pieces of art which you want to really emphasise. Traditional frames hang on the walls of the most prestigious art galleries, and you can create the same sense of opulent grandeur in your home with a beautifully crafted picture frame to showcase your masterpiece, whether you live in a modern city apartment or a rustic farmhouse. The question you need to ask is whether your picture creates a powerful enough impact to avoid being overshadowed by the ornate beauty of a traditional frame.

Some Inspiration for Your Traditional Picture Frames

A Traditional Frame should usually complement a conversational piece of interior design, showcasing a picture that you want people to appreciate.

These pieces are generally best placed where people will relax together, such as a living or dining room, rather than a more functional space like the kitchen or bathroom. That is not to say that a Traditional Frame can’t look fabulous in these rooms – this is not a hard and fast rule, and you should feel free to break it if your picture demands it.

Traditional Frames are also not only for large centrepiece pictures. Smaller decorative frames can be used alongside other styles as a gallery to create a sense of bohemian chic, subtly drawing attention to a smaller scale picture in your collection. We can craft traditional frames in any size, so whatever your vision for your wall, we can help you achieve it.

With a Traditional Frame you also have a range of colour and finish options. Use our online frame builder to select a lavish gold or silver leaf finish, or a classic bronze design, whatever will best suit your vision. If you have any questions about your design, we will be on-hand to use our 30 years’ framing experience to support you.

With a range of materials and colour options to choose from, there’s never been a more perfect time to hang up your memories in a custom traditional style picture frame design. Create your own personalised tailored design with our easy-to-use interface. Traditional picture frames designed to the measurements of your picture or treasured object, and built by hand by our experienced team of framers.
