What is Picture Frame Molding?

Picture frame molding comes in a large variety of shapes and sizes, and in many cases, you can even customize the molding per your own specifications. Once the picture frame molding has been handcrafted according to your requirements and with the wood of your choice, you can choose what kind of staining or finish you would like to apply over it. Therefore, you can ensure that your frames are consistent and coordinate with the rest of your home. Picture frame molding is made from many different types of wood. Some of the most common species include red oak, poplar, birch, hard maple, cherry, pine, or walnut.

From creating custom frames for family photographs to creative art projects, picture frame molding has many uses. For example:

  • Picture frame molding can be used to create custom frames for large art pieces and treasured art work. Picture frame moldings can be simple to allow the beauty of a piece to show through or more intricate to complement more detailed wall art and paintings.
  • Picture frame moldings can also come in simpler forms so as to accommodate family photographs or portraits. While family photos will typically have a simple picture frame molding that does not take attention away from the photograph itself, individual portraits may call for a grand frame to accentuate the subject of the portrait.
  • Adding picture frame molding to a personal bedroom mirror is also a commonly used technique to add richness and style to your home. Mirrors with beautifully designed picture frame moldings add an element of grace and elegance to dining rooms and bathrooms as well.
