Interior design is like a three-dimensional game of chess: you have to think about space both vertically and horizontally. In some cases, the space feels too small or large enough that you have enough space to swing dance in the living room. You must break down these rooms and create spaces with scale. An expansive room needs different sized artwork. Creating separate spaces with large art panels is always a beautiful option.
Installation art ranges from the very simple to the very complex. It can be gallery based, computer-based, electronic-based, web-based - the possibilities are limitless and depend entirely upon the artist's concept and aims. Almost any type of material or media can be utilized, including natural or man-made objects, painting and sculpture. Artwork installation is much more than knocking a few nails in the wall.
Where to Hang
Installing artwork at the right height is of paramount importance. We follow a museum guideline of 156cm from the floor to the center of the image. This may have to adjust depending on the size of your wall space. Should be lower.
Care should be taken to hang your art piece in an area where it will not become damaged by heat, ultraviolet (UV) light rays or humidity. Try not to hang your framed artwork or photographs in direct sunlight. Choose subdued lighting effects that will not reflect into the glass, especially when you are not using non-reflective glass.
Create a Safe Space
Conserve your fine art by hanging it at a safe distance from damp areas such as bathrooms, spaces with poor ventilation and steamy kitchen areas. Moisture and humidity can damage artwork significantly over time, potentially ruining pieces of financial, cultural or personal value.
Protect your fine art by installing it at a safe distance from direct heat sources such as radiators and electric heaters. Fluctuations in heat can cause long-term damage to an artwork which can lead to costly art restoration treatments!
