Appropriate Frame Width

Many people assume that narrow frame moldings are for small pictures and larger works of art should be paired with wider frame moldings. That isn’t always the case. Wider frames can benefit smaller pieces of art by calling attention to them. The width of a frame can also be used to relate the framed art to the scale of your room or furnishings – don’t overpower a room with a frame that’s too large for the space or under-power the artwork with too petite a frame.
