Matching décor and furniture

When choosing a frame or a mount for your picture you may wish to match an existing frame in your home or possibly the décor in the room that your picture will hang. A very good way to match existing frames is to bring along your old frame to our workshop when you visit. If your picture is too big or it is not practical you can always take a digital photo of the frame and e-mail it to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . If you are in doubt you can always borrow our samples and see which is the exact or nearest match. Additionally when using stained or plain wood it is probably best to compare our samples with your furniture to ensure a good match. Another great idea suggested by a recent customer is to bring in some of your furniture to ensure a suitable match. In this case the customer bought in a pillow from her sofa. It may seem a little over the top but it is incredibly easy to think that the colour frame chosen looks the perfect match only to discover when you get home that the match wasn't quite as good as you had hoped! I am not expecting you all to bring in your oak kitchen tables for matching purposes but please feel free to use any of the above methods to ensure a good match with your décor.
