Floating Picture Frames Overview

If you’re looking to truly make an impact with your photography, try a modern floating picture frame to offer the professionalism and style you need to truly enhance your photographs. Minimalist yet striking, our revolutionary float mount option comes in a variety of mouldings including our original Classic Large moulding, as well as our Appleton and Baroque ranges to give you the ultimate flexibility. Choose your ideal frame moulding to begin your creation, select any template within the online designer, single image or multi-aperture, and finally select “Float Mount” at the checkout.

With our modern float mount option, your images will be raised from the back panel, suspended away from the thick ultra-clear acrylic glass to create a floating effect. This creates the illusion of your picture floating within the frame; your image showcased in the centre while elevated from the backdrop to establish a subtle and stunning drop shadow. Float mount picture frames are the perfect finishing touch for your professional portraits, beloved wedding photos, and baby shoots.

Moulding options for float mounts

Our float mount photo frames are available in a range of moulding options and colours to give professional photographers the flexibility to offer stunning bespoke floating picture frames. Simply click on your chosen moulding to visit its individual page, then select your size to go through to the online designer. Then once you’ve uploaded your image, you can select “Float Mount” at the checkout. Although we have a broad range of mouldings available in a float mount, this is not available on all of our frames. You can browse our float mount mouldings below to choose your favourite and begin designing.


The Appleton moulding is a modern wooden photo frame available in 3 neutral colours, perfect for any environment and lighting condition. Choose from a finish in grey, chestnut or charcoal all of which compliment each other to make your floating illusion frame come to life. While exhibiting a distinguishable wooden grain, the finish of the appleton moulding is smooth, making it ideal for modern framing. This moulding is a very popular option due to its natural wooden finish in three subtle colours, sure to complement any environment. Appleton frames look great individually, but also work well as a combination set mixing the different frame colours or mount options.


Available in two distressed metallic finishes, our Baroque picture frame showcases a strong decorative look, certain to draw attention. Choose from gold or silver to create the ultimate float mount combination of a vintage moulding with a modern floating twist. Both colours are created using a textured layered paint effect with a defined brush stroke for a truly individual finish every time. These ornate wooden frames are made from premium-grade materials which offer an additional aesthetic touch to the image you wish to showcase. If you’re looking to recreate a vintage frame or antique photo frame look, our Baroque frame might be the perfect option for you.

Classic Large

With a perfect variety of 6 colours to choose from, our Classic Large moulding is ideal for modern photographers. You can opt for satin black or satin white classic large moulding to recreate our original floating picture frame range for a modern and contemporary feel. Both the black and white are finished with a satin seal to create a truly stunning final piece, perfect for all types of home decor styles. If you’re looking for something different from the standard monochrome finish, we have the perfect range of complimentary colour choices including a natural wood and walnut wood, as well as a metallic gold and silver.

Multiple picture float mounts

Modern technology and traditional framing methods are combined to offer the ultimate personalised frame display. With a multi-aperture floating finish now available, you can create your float mount with more than a single image to complete your design. Simply select from any of our templates in the online designer available with layouts to include up to 9 images, and select “Float Mount” at the checkout. Each image will then be individually raised from the back panel in the layout you have designed to create a stunning multi-aperture seamless floating effect. This means you can select more than 1 image from any shoot or event to showcase within a frame and truly wow your clients.

Our floating picture frames offer a completely new flexibility for modern boutique framing to create a truly personalised and artistic piece. You can now design your float mount with a broad range of mouldings, as well as an impressive choice of layouts and designs to accommodate your images.

Choose to display a single image as a centerpiece, or select a multi-aperture template in the online designer to have between 2 and 9 images individually float mounted within one single frame. The sleek modern illusion puts your photography at the centre stage, creating a stunning focal point in any room.

How to hang your float mount frame

Floating Picture Frame Fixings

Every one of our frames, both traditionally mounted or float mounted, arrive with pre-positioned hangers on the reverse ready to be hung straight on your wall. These sturdy hangers are 10mm in width, which allows for valuable wiggle room when hanging your frame on the wall to adjust positioning left to right and are designed to distribute the weight evenly once erected.

Simply measure the space inbetween the hangers to plot your holes on your desired wall and safely administer screws / wall plugs of your choice into position. Then once you’re satisfied that the screws are secure, lift your frame and rest the inside of the hangers over the screws to hold in place on the wall. As each bespoke frame is supplied ready to hang and with a presentation box included, handing over a beautifully finished product to a client has never been easier.
