What is the difference between a picture frame and a box frame?

Picture frames and box frames are both distinctive types of frames used for displaying a variety of items, but they have different designs and purposes.

Picture frames are the more traditional and common type of frame that you may be more familiar with. They consist of a front made of glass or acrylic panel that encases a photo, artwork or print. The frame typically has a flat design and comes in various shapes, such as rectangular, square, oval or round. Picture frames are intended for displaying images on a flat surface, such as a wall or a table. They can have a variety of styles, ranging from simple and modern to ornate and decorative.

On the other hand, a box frame is deeper and more three-dimensional. They can also be known as shadow box frames. Instead of a flat design, a box frame has depth, creating a space between the glass/acrylic front and the backing. This depth allows you to display not just flat items like photos or prints, but also three-dimensional objects such as memorabilia, keepsakes or small sculptures. Box frames are ideal for showcasing items that have both visual and sentimental value, as they provide a unique way of creating visually interesting and textured displays.

In summary, while both picture frames and box frames serve the purpose of displaying items, a picture frame is mainly used for flat images such as photos and prints, while a box frame offers the added dimensionality to accommodate objects with depth, allowing you to create more intricate and captivating displays. The choice between the two depends on the nature of the items you wish to showcase as well as the aesthetic you are aiming for.

How much bigger should a frame be than the picture?

The amount by which a frame should be bigger than a picture depends on a couple of factors, such as personal preference and the style you want to achieve. A general guideline is to have a matting or border around the picture, which helps to visually separate the image from the frame and provides a buffer between the image and the frame's edges.

Traditionally, a matting of around 5 to 7 centimetres is often added around a picture. This means that if you have a picture that's roughly 20x25 cm, you might opt for a frame that's around 30x35 cm with a matting. However, this can vary based on the size of the picture as well as the overall impact you want to create.

It's also important to keep in mind that the frames' size is a design choice that can influence the perception of the picture. A larger frame with a wider matting can add emphasis to the picture, while a smaller frame with a narrower matting may create a more intimate and focused presentation.

Ultimately the decision of how much bigger the frame should be than the picture is a matter of aesthetics and personal preference. Experimenting with a variety of different frame sizes and matting options can help you to find the perfect balance that complements your picture and enhances its visual appearance.

Do picture frames have to be exact size?

No, picture frames don't necessarily have to be the exact size of the picture they hold. Many picture frames are designed with a bit of extra space to accommodate matting or to create a visual border around the image. This space adds a layer of aesthetics and helps separate the picture from the frame's edges. However, the degree of variance depends on personal preferences as well as the desired look. It's important to choose a frame size that complements the picture and enhances its presentation, even if it's not an exact match.
