Reflective vs. Non-Reflective Frames: Creating the Perfect Interior Scheme for Your Wall Art

Welcome to Oblong Shop, where every corner tells a story through the lens of travel photographer Seus Ku. As you delve into the world of transforming your living space into a gallery of memories, one crucial decision arises: Should you opt for reflective or non-reflective frames for your precious prints?

In today's blog post, we'll explore the merits of each option and how they can complement your interior design scheme, drawing from the expertise of our seasoned photographers and framers.

Reflective Frames: Adding Depth and Light

Reflective frames, particularly those using plexiglass, hold a unique allure in interior design. Beyond merely housing your cherished prints, these frames can serve a dual purpose by occasionally acting as mirrors, amplifying light and creating an illusion of spaciousness within your home.

Imagine the gentle glow of the morning sun cascading through your windows, only to be captured and dispersed by the reflective surface of your framed print, casting warm, inviting light into every nook and cranny. This play of light not only enhances the ambiance but also breathes life into your space, making it feel more vibrant and dynamic.

Furthermore, plexiglass offers several practical advantages over traditional glass. Its lightweight nature makes it easier to handle and hang, reducing the risk of accidents during installation. Its shatter-proof properties provide peace of mind, especially in households with children or pets. Additionally, plexiglass boasts superior UV protection, safeguarding your prints against the harmful effects of prolonged exposure to sunlight, ensuring their longevity for years to come.

Non-Reflective Wall Art: Embracing Timeless Elegance

On the other hand, non-reflective wall art, often presented on canvas in stretched or float frame options, exudes a timeless elegance that effortlessly complements a variety of interior styles. These pieces offer a subtler presence, allowing the focus to remain squarely on the captivating imagery they encapsulate.

Canvas prints, with their textured surface and matte finish, add depth and dimension to your walls, inviting closer inspection and fostering a sense of intimacy with the subject matter. Whether it's a sweeping landscape captured at sunset or a candid portrait frozen in time, non-reflective wall art draws viewers in, encouraging contemplation and reflection.

For those seeking a cohesive look that seamlessly integrates reflective and non-reflective elements into their home decor, a balanced combination of both styles offers endless possibilities. By strategically placing reflective frames to harness natural light and incorporating non-reflective canvas prints for their understated allure, you can achieve a harmonious balance that elevates your space to new heights.
