Reframing & Restoring Pictures and Frames

Over time, your favorite items can start to look dated or worn. With a  little TLC, your favorite artwork, photos and frames can look fresh again. All you have to do is think about the frames.

Giving New Life to Old Favorites

We all know what a frame is. But think about the other ways we use the word “frame” in conversation; how something is framed can impact how individuals see it. The same goes for changing the frames on your artwork or photographs. You can help control what details are more prominent in the artwork and how the art interacts with other aspects of your décor through the selection of a proper frame.

One thing that often surprises people is how changing a frame can completely update a work of art. While some framing styles reflect trends and techniques that were popular during a certain time, the artwork itself really is timeless. Even art that embodies a particular era can be used in almost any decorating scheme, if it is presented properly.

Frames can help bridge the feel of the artwork and the feel of the room, and can make a piece of art that seemed dated suddenly seem new and relevant once more. Reframing with custom frames can also help preserve your art. Make sure you select each element of your new frame carefully. Our framing experts can help you with acid-free mats and UV protection glass to help ensure your art is preserved for as long as possible.

Maybe the current frame is perfect for your art and decor, but has sustained some damage over time. You can bring your old picture frames back to life with picture frame restoration. Giving new life to old frames can be cost-effective, and preserving the original frame is rewarding as well.

Many people have accumulated family photographs in their original frames that look great separately, but not when they are grouped together on a wall. Reframing allows you to coordinate your frames, use mats to create the size displays you want, and even use color to highlight elements in the photos. The use of frame color to highlight elements of photographs is especially remarkable when combined with some of the old-fashioned color techniques or sepia-tinted photos.

Your old artwork, frames and photos have so much potential. New or restored frames can help you refresh your collection of baby pictures, diploma framing, framed needlework, and so much more. Carefully select perfect new frames for your precious mementos with the help of the framing experts at our custom framing shop in Boca Raton.
