When you move to a new home, there is a host of pictures and art to hang. For you, it could take weeks and is likely not to be on your priority of list of things that need to be done right away.
An art installer can handle whole home installations in one to two days and offer some significant benefits asides from convenience.
- Get large or oversized wood frames hung safely
Oversized frames are definitely statement pieces. These are the type of art installations that instantly add a statement piece to your new home, making it feel like yours. It is your stamp.
Naturally, given the weight of large wood frames, they need extra care to make sure they are attached to their fixings properly, hang safely with no risk of falling, yet be anchored to studs in the wall to avoid a heavy wall hanging art display from destroying plasterboard.
- Professional assistance in creating bespoke gallery wall displays
There is a difference between hiring a handyman service to install a picture frame and hiring an art installation team. The latter are creatives and labourers. They assist in the design aspects, provide you with a range of photo and art display options and initially work with you to create a design that you like and one that works in the space that you have available.
- Attach art to difficult to drill into walls and décor items
Hanging artwork is a relatively easy installation process for standard sizes of picture frames on standard walls. For the solid concrete or brick walls, things become trickier.
Every hole should be done with precision to maintain the integrity of the building structure. Not to mention, if you are lucky enough to have a decorative and traditional brick backdrop for your display, such as an industrial complex that has been transformed into modern apartments, you will want to maintain that look. Not be drilling holes all over a good backdrop only to fill them up with patching compound materials.
Even more difficult surfaces that would likely necessitate a professional installer would be hanging large mirrors in aluminium frames in a bathroom, or canvas prints on kitchen wall tiles or marble walls. These are delicate surfaces that are extremely difficult to drill into and require specialist tools and a pair of experienced hands powering them to minimise the risk of damage.
- Benefit from the contacts of an art installer
This has to be priceless. The advice you can get from anyone who is part of the art industry, and an experienced professional will work with a range of partners.
From picture restorers, frame restorers, gilt repairers, lighting specialists, and local art fabricators that could be commissioned for a custom piece that could add a perfect finesse to a professional artwork installation with a difference.
The advice and contacts you can tap into are going to be particularly beneficial for art collectors and artists when they move to a new area. A local art installer or art technician can put you in the know of who is who in your local art community.
