If you have ever shopped for photo frames then you know it can be a little overwhelming. There are so many picture frames to choose from in a large variety of styles, colors, sizes and price ranges. So where do you begin? In order to save yourself some frustration, start off asking yourself these three questions:
* Who is the frame for?
* How much do you want to spend?
* Where will it be displayed?
These basic questions are often overlooked when shopping for that perfect picture frame. Answering them before you begin will speed up your search and result in the perfect gift or frame for yourself.
The first question to ask yourself is: Who is the picture frame for?
Are you looking for a frame for yourself or for a special friend or loved one? Are you getting the frame for a special occasion? Are you buying the frame to display a group of photos or keepsakes or just a single photo?
Purchasing a frame for someone you know can be easier than choosing that perfect frame for yourself. Online retailers often have categories of frames to look at like wedding photo frames, baby frames, graduation frames, oval picture frames and more. Using these categories to find the right frame will make your search easier.
When shopping for yourself, it's good to know what picture you want to display and the decorative style that you want the frame to complement. You can also narrow down your search even further by knowing the shape, color, material and the frame size you want. By knowing these few questions, it will make your search easier and help you save time in finding the right frame more quickly.
The next step is to determine what your budget is.
Most online picture frame retailers have a large selection of frames to fit any price range. You can find picture frames for less than $10 or more than several hundred dollars. Knowing your budget will help you select the perfect frame in the price range you want.
Last, but no less important, you should ask yourself: Where will the picture frame be used?
To get the most out of your photo frame purchase, you should know where it will be displayed. You may like the frame and how your picture looks in it, but if your frame clashes with your decor or doesn't fit where you want to display it, you have wasted your time and money. You don't need to have an exact spot selected but you should know if it will be placed on a tabletop or hung on a wall.
If the frame is a gift, it may not be possible to know where it will be displayed, but it will help to have a sense of whether it might be displayed on a tabletop or hung on a wall. If you're not sure, then choose a picture frame that includes both an easel back stand and hanging hardware.
Before you buy your next picture frame, answer these three questions and you will save yourself time and energy in finding the perfect picture frame quickly and easily.
