Bespoke Frame Trends for 2019


Bespoke frames never go out of fashion: if you find the right bespoke frame provider, your frame will last for many years and serve as a lasting testament to your sense of taste and an object that you adore.

What are the hottest bespoke frame trends for 2019 though? Here’s a closer look at exactly why you should choose a bespoke picture frame and the trends that you should look out for.


Why to Choose a Bespoke Frame

Here’s a closer look at exactly why bespoke frames remain so popular today.


Total control

If you decide to commission a bespoke frame, you’ll have total control over the process. This means that you can choose key options like the material, the colour, the size, shape and much more.

This gives you a sense of unparalleled control that is simply not offered with ready-made picture frames. If you have a particularly beautiful or meaningful object that you want to put in the perfect frame, you’ll want to go for a bespoke option.


Ultimate protection

There are lots of important items that people choose to frame for a wide range of reasons. These items are often irreplaceable and they need to be stored in a safe way that gives those items the protection that they need.

Bespoke frames offer incredible amounts of protection against damage and harm from UV rays. They are much more effective than ready-made frames – if you have an important item that needs to be protected, you should choose a bespoke frame.


Express yourself

Everybody loves to express themselves, their tastes and their preferences. The places where we live are canvases upon which we can really paint a picture of who we are and what we love.

Bespoke frames give you total control and this means that you can fully express yourself. Choosing a bespoke frame is also a sign that you value the piece you’ve chosen to frame and it can really elevate the status of your home.



Ready-made picture frames are often made from poor-quality materials. Those poor materials reduce the longevity of your frame and often fail to give your prized possession the protection that it deserves.

Bespoke picture frames last much longer while offering you the protection that you need. If you want to get a better value for money in the long term, you really can’t beat a bespoke picture frame.


Key Bespoke Frame Trends

Now that we have a better understanding of why you might want to choose a bespoke picture frame, let’s dive a little deeper into some of the key trends that we have seen for 2019 and beyond.
