There are many cheap wooden frames samples to choose from when you frame a picture. The hardwoods are more expensive but not by as much as one would think.
Hardwood mouldings are beautiful – fact! The Oak frame we stock is supplied in several widths for all sized artworks. It does not need any further treatment, and just looks simply great on all types of framed pictures from photographs to fine art abstract paintings and sketches.
The cheaper and softer wood mouldings can be treated with a stain to darken their colour or limed to give a subtle off-white finish. These are produced in several depths and thicknesses.
