FATG Enhanced LogoWhat are the Five Levels of Framing? 

These are set out in the UK by the Fine Art Trade Guild and act as a framework and a set of guidelines for choosing the appropriate materials and methods suitable for framing your items.

When having something framed it is worth thinking about the standard you want the item framed to. This may not have crossed your mind, but there is a wide range of framing material available to the bespoke framer and it is our job to select the correct material for the job. While nobody is compelled to use these guidelines It does make sense for us to use them as reference when considering having something framed.

Framing in black and white

 Interest in interior design continues to grow and art is increasingly being used to complement the colour and theme of a room’s décor.  

The correct choice of artwork and frames can add important finishing touches to the interior design of your home.  But with colours and themes going out as soon as they come in, it’s hard to know what’s hot and what’s not. 

Despite ever changing interior design trends, black and white images and photographs continue to be a popular & timeless choice.

The ability of black and white images to fit many decorating styles has contributed to its increased popularity, and customers have become more open to alternative, more sophisticated framing designs for these items.

FramesChoosing the right picture frame and mount for your pictures, photographs and treasured memories can be a real challenge.

Getting the right proportions helps create balance and harmony, after all a framed picture is the finishing touch to your room and should complement the decor perfectly and impress your family and friends too. But, most importantly, it should make your art or picture the main focus of attention.

For those items that are precious to you, either sentimentally or financially, it's important to consider protecting them. Opting for quality conservation materials at the outset is a wise choice and will ensure that future generations can enjoy them too.
