In the world of art, photography and picture framing, the different variations of frames and what they are used for can get a bit confusing. To the untrained eye. picture frames can all look the same and seemingly be interchangeable. In reality, that is not the case. Based on the material, style and size, each picture frame is chosen for a different reason. Due to this, a common question we often encounter is; what exactly is a floater frame?
Floater Frames are used for works of art that are painted or printed on a canvas. This style of frame is particularly popular among photographers and painters. A Floater Frame provides extra space around the canvas and can make is seem like the artwork is floating, hence the name. The floater frame provides a very safe space for the picture housed inside it and often compliments the artwork by adding a three-dimensional feel.
