We have another guest post today from Easy Move about best practices for hanging pictures.
Displaying paintings is easier than ever with modern art hanging systems. These systems are often used by art galleries and museums because of their convenience and ability to reduce the number of wall repairs.
If you want to streamline your art, we recommend a picture hanging system! Below are some of the benefits.
Many museum curators test placement and layout for artwork by laying them on the floor or putting them against a wall. Unfortunately, these techniques do not offer a real idea of how the artwork will look on the wall. Pictures look different when they are hung up.
With a picture hanging system, it is easy to adjust height and position. Also, you can check several picture combinations and make a good decision based on how it really looks on your wall. These systems allow you to make rows straight and picture groupings perfectly spaced out.
The best picture hanging systems have security hooks so you know if someone tampers with a piece of art. These are helpful devices that ease the minds of gallery and art curators. Security hooks stop tampering and theft of valuable paintings. Also, they offer safety so that an artwork is never knocked off the wall.
Modern picture hanging systems have LED lights so that you can light up your artwork to look its best. The great thing about LED is they convert 80% of energy to light. Regular lightbulbs generate more heat than light. Heat and UV light will harm your artwork, so LED lights are a great choice.
A picture hanging system usually have lights built into the system so the light looks natural close to the artwork.
A picture hanging system also helps you economically. Your gallery does not have to spend money year after year on redecorating, cleaning, and plastering. Also, you do not need to pay staff to do these things. Once you buy the system, there is no maintenance cost and no effect on the walls after the system is set up.
In addition, you do not need to check with maintenance to see if a wall has wires and pipes running through it. Plus, you never have to think about any type of hanging hardware ever again!
Art hanging systems have many benefits that you are certain to enjoy, so give one a try today.
