10 Top Tips To Make Your Art Look More Expensive

One of the most simple ways to make your artwork look pricier and more expensive is to focus on the framing. Choosing the right picture frame can make all the difference. 

In this guide, our experts have put together the best tips to elevate your art and help you reveal which type of frames would work best for your picture.

Did you hear about the Salvator Mundi original painting by Leonardo da Vinci which sold for $450 million at a Christie's auction in 2017? With original one-of-a-kind paintings fetching unparalleled new heights, art prints are a more budget-conscious option as they are much more affordable than an original piece of art.

If you are fortunate enough to own a piece of collectable art, such as limited edition or signed original artwork, discover how to make your art look even more expensive with our simple guide. 

It's All In The Frame

Dreaming of luxury hotel interiors and high-end designer spaces? No problem. It's easy to achieve these looks with art, but it's absolutely all in the detail.

Choosing a frame to preserve and display your masterpiece must be a thoughtful process so you can elevate your design while making it look picture perfect in your chosen room.

PRO TIP: By selecting a frame with a large mat, you can enlarge your art and make it look even more luxurious.

1. Choose A Classic Black Frame

2. Opt For Custom Wide Mounting

Our signature frames come with a 5 cm wide bevelled mount so your picture will be positioned within a uniform mount, which is the gold standard for framing and perfect for displaying art and pictures. However, if you want to go one step further, you can opt for a bespoke mount which is much wider, making sure your premium artwork is the pinnacle focus in the frame.

At Abstract House, we cut all of our mounts in-house, so we have the benefit of offering bespoke sized mounts at a fraction of the price of high street framers.
