Floating Glass Frames - An Exciting Alternative For Picture Frames

In framing photos or pictures, it is not only the protection that it provides that is important. It is also quality and the enhancement of the picture or the photo that should be considered - Glass Picture frames provide this enhancement. Frames are like crowning glories of photographs and art materials. Even how beautiful, intricate and nice these materials are, but if their framing are not that good, they will just sink in and become worthless. Also, most of these picture or artworks are priceless, thus, a proper and appropriate presentation of them should be done.

A number of considerations have to be taken in choosing the right photo frame for your piece of work or memory. These include the size, color, dimensions, and the matte. The borders, their color and design are significant in enhancing or ruining the beauty of your material. The problem with frames is that, they sometimes become more eye-catching than the picture, which creates a problem in attention capturing. Also, there are pictures or pieces of art material that we want to frame which do not really need borders. And when borders are not appropriately chosen, the pictures become unnoticeable and unpleasing to the visual sense.

Furthermore, some pictures need a three dimensional view in order to have the full picture of it. In these cases, the use of glasses and a floating effect come into play. Glass panes are very flexible and easy to be set-up especially in use for framing. One advantage of using glass is it adapts to any material that you will frame in it. It also adds elegance to artwork and provides an excellent protection to the picture.

Because photos that are displayed are very much prone to damages, by touching breathing on them and others, they should be thoroughly protected without compromising the displaying quality of the material. The glass fully protects the material but also fully covers them, thus protecting and keeping it safely. Also, glasses are not prone to hazing, degradation, insect infestation, moisture absorption as long as they are kept hanging in the wall.

The benefits of using glass become better and more beneficial when combined it with floating frames. In this modern framing method, both the panes (front and backdrop which sandwich the picture) are made of glass but are separated by small panels. The picture inside the frames is given depth as the third dimension thus enhancing their visual impact. In addition, floating glass frames or floating glass picture frames are a way of giving dignity to a piece of picture or artwork. These methods are commonly used in art exhibits and museums because in this way, frames are complementary to the picture and/or the artwork. Also, in this way, you are concentrating the attention of the observer to the picture or artwork and to the picture frame. Thus, floating glass picture frames are an exciting alternative to picture frames.
