    Typical mat for me is 12x16" paper (290x390mm image cutout) in 16x20" (400x500mm). With uniform edges, that would be 55mm per edge. I use 55mm sides, 60mm bottom and 50mm top and it looks quite balanced.

It's something I'm going to have to forgo if I want my mount to remain 16x20" and have a larger space at the bottom.
    Not nice to have the top smaller than the sides, but vertically centered is worse. You may have to go to larger mats to avoid these issues. I mount trimmed 11x14 paper on 18x22 mats.
