Buying a Photo Frame
When buying a photo frame there are a number of factors to take into consideration:
Size - is it for a photo you already have? If so check the size of the aperture of the frame to make sure your photo will fit or can be cut to size without taking out too much. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Grey-Beaded-Antiqued-Distressed-Photo-Frame-Square-Rectangle-Vintage-/222039340871?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT
Occasion - is it for a special occasion, eg wedding, christening, new baby? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Baby-Photo-Frame-Rustic-Whitewashed-Our-Baby-Country-Charm-6-x-4-Photo-/321968389212?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT If so, add this to your search criteria to view relevant frames.
Placement - where is the frame to go? If you want to hang it on the wall then check that there are relevant fixings on the back. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Heart-Wooden-Photo-Frame-Red-Hanging-Heart-Shabby-Chic-Gisela-Graham-/322064013823?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT
Portrait or Landscape - check the frame will stand the way you want it to. Some frames will stand either way, others have a central stand and can therefore only stand in one position. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Grey-Beaded-Antiqued-Distressed-Photo-Frame-Square-Rectangle-Vintage-/222039340871?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT
Room - is there a particular room you want the frame for? If so make sure it will fit in with your decorative style - shabby chic, antique, vintage/retro, contemporary. All these words can be added to your search to narrow your choice down.
Photo frames are a great way of updating an area of your home and make wonderful gifts, with or without a photo.
