The Definitive White Picture Frames Guide

Are you looking to elevate your home or office decor? White picture frames are a sophisticated way to showcase your favorite art or photos, complimenting both modern and traditional decor while blending harmoniously with a variety of furniture and artwork. But with so many white frame options available, how do you select the best one for your needs?

Join us as we explore how to source the ideal white picture frame, plus get expert hanging tips from the pros you won’t want to miss!

White Frame Options

Before you head to your favorite big box chain decor store to pick up a white frame, be aware that not all frames are created equal, and while at first glance many frames may look the same, looks can be deceiving.

Big box options limit you to one or two sizes, plus they’re made using materials that are cheaper and tend to break down over time while offering limited to no protection for your art or photos. When you select a Frame It Easy frame, you’ll rest easy knowing your frame was hand-crafted in the USA using high-quality materials designed to protect its contents and stand the test of time! Take a look at the options below to find the perfect frame for your decor!

Derby Frame

Our most popular wood frame with a chunky, flat face, the Derby frame is a fan-favorite for a good reason! It’s a versatile frame style that comes in a variety of exciting finishes, including white and whitewash! Pair it with your best black-and-white photography for a stunning wall display!

Pairing Matboards With Your White Frame

Have you found a white picture frame that just can’t live without? Once you think you’ve narrowed it down to one or two options, you’ll need to consider if you want to add a matboard to your art. A matboard not only serves as a colorful compliment to your frame, but it acts as an additional layer of protection for your art by separating the artwork from the lens cover which prevents the buildup of moisture over time. So, while not necessary, we definitely recommend it!

Confused about where to start? You can’t go wrong with a classic white matboard. It’s a versatile selection that blends well with any kind of art or photography and helps your artwork pop. In the same way that white matboards are the go-to for designers and artists, black matboards also look striking against a white picture frame! The contrast between two opposites creates a lot of visual interest which draws the viewer’s eye to your display.

Not sure how to measure your art for framing? In this video we make sure you get the perfect fit by teaching you how to measure your art, read a ruler, and get to know some key frame-related measurements.

Ordering White Picture Frames

Once you’ve decided on your perfect frame and matboard, head over to our interactive frame designer! If you have a digital file, we can print your art for you! We use large-format, professional-grade printers with archival-quality ink for sharp, vibrant prints. Simply upload your file to our frame designer, choose your paper (either art or photo paper are available) and cover (standard acrylic or non-glare acrylic), select your frame design options, and we’ll print, frame, and send a ready-to-hang picture directly to you!

Don’t need us to print? No problem! Just enter your artwork dimensions, select your cover and design options, and we’ll ship a custom frame to your home or office.
