How To Prep Your Home for Fine Art Installation

fine art installationWith the holiday season looming, it’s crucial to get your house in order for your fine art installation. Between holiday meals, get-togethers, and seasonal decorating, the stress of securing your favorite art pieces in your home can be overwhelming. Here are some tricks to get your home prepped for your art and how expert handlers can make the installation process smooth.

Finding the Right Pieces

The first step in getting ready for your home art installation is deciding what art you want to display. Every piece of art evokes a different emotion. This season, you’re likely looking for pieces that make your home truly feel like the holidays. When choosing the piece that puts you in the seasonal mood, also consider its size when it comes to installation. Will the piece fit through a door? Will it be placed in a stairway and need additional tools, like lifts or rigging? Find a piece that can easily be installed and that you will happily enjoy for the next several months.

Deciding on Location

Location is another important aspect of installation to keep in mind. If you’re considering an outdoor piece, does your home traditionally experience heavy wind or stormy weather during the winter season? Will your location require a special mount, security hardware, or UV protection as well? It’s important that you keep these additional securities in mind when choosing your installation location. The Art Work team can assist in both design and site preparation.

When thinking about location, you should also consider the people and pets that will be near the art you choose. It’s crucial that your piece and your family are safe and secure. Ideally, you will want to select an area where your pieces are secured to the wall and will be free of any interference.
