4 Custom Picture Framing Trends For Framing Companies


Interior design never stops moving; new trends are always catching. This is very much the case for custom picture framing trends as homeowners look for fresh and creative ways to add to the aesthetics of their space.

Photographs and art help to preserve important memories and associations for us. Where we choose to hang them in our homes and the frames that we use are just as important as the pictures that we are choosing.

In this blog post, we will take a look at four exciting picture framing trends that are already proving to be popular in 2021. Keep reading to learn more about what you should know going forward.


1. Shadow-Box

Simply put, a shadow-box is an enclosed glass-front display case that contains an object, typically with personal or artistic significance. Shadow-boxes are highly versatile, and they are becoming increasingly popular as custom picture frames.

Shadow-boxes have an aesthetic beauty that truly highlights important memorabilia or images. As they are generally deeper than traditional frames, they tend to draw a person deeper into the photograph or art piece held within.

The amount of white space within the frame is very versatile with shadow-boxes, as is the actual size of the shadow-box frame itself.

2. Float Frames

As the name suggests, float frames create the appearance of the artwork floating within the frame. This can create the feeling of three-dimensional depth for the viewer and really add to the beauty of a room or space.

Float frames usually pair with canvas artwork, and the frame plays an integral part in the overall visual appeal. The ability to be creative and incorporate the wall color behind the frame into the effect makes this an increasingly popular trend in modern homes.

3. Leather Frames

Leather frames are durable and versatile, given the different colors and textures possible.

High-quality leather frames are a timeless addition to any home or office and make for a wonderful birthday or anniversary gift. Leather frames are proving popular again in 2021, combining a vintage and natural feel that is also truly artistic.

4. Corner Frames

Corner picture frames add incredible visual depth to spaces by fitting into the corners of rooms or wrapping around the angles of walls. They can make an excellent focal point for any space.

Corner frames are more intricate than traditional ‘flat’ frames but create stunning visual effects that add to the feel of any room. We expect that this exciting trend will continue in 2021.
