Mount Size

Hello,
I’m going to frame some of my pictures and have been searching for information with regard to the border left around the print.

I know that a print should (ideally) be weighted towards the top of the frame, meaning that the space at the bottom should be larger than the space at the top.

I.E. the same amount of space between the frame and the pint on the left, right and top but a larger space at the bottom.

Do you have any idea what the ratio of space around a print should be for framing a print for any given size of frame?

Any help would be very much appreciated.
