Tips for Fine Art Decorating for DIY Business Owners
Most upscale hotels and restaurants, as well as large corporations can afford to hire designers and decorators to go out and find the right paintings to display in their place of business. It’s important for their companies to have the right ambiance or stimulating decor that will appeal to the majority of their clients and employees. If you have decided to do the interior decorations for your place of business, do keep in mind that art can make people feel deeply; so whether it’s a bright, calming or inspiring image, it can make all the emotional difference for those who see those paintings daily.
In addition to the right image, the right presentation of the fine art reproduction is also necessary. If you are decorating your own business, and you want to give it what’s called a “high end” look, you’ll have consider investing just a little bit more to make it perfect. You must remember to consider the proper frame for your painted canvas and the correct lighting needed to enhance the art piece. Take a walk into a high class hotel lobby, or visit a “fancy” restaurant, and you’ll see what I mean. You may want to tour a museum or two also, and see if any of the artists’ works there seem like a right fit for you, as well as how the museums have displayed their paintings. Really, you don’t have to pay an interior decorator to do the work for you because it just takes a little footwork and attention to detail.
Now, to stay within your budget is very important to most art buyers, but shopping around in order to get the best value is also key. You’ll find that the best art reproduction companies will offer you guarantees, have testimonials from happy customers, and have large images (not just thumbnails) to show just what kind of work that their professional artists can do. One mistake that some buyers make is to try and save money on the shipping costs. Everyone hates to pay more than they feel they should have to when it comes to shipping, but if you want your painting to arrive on time and undamaged, don’t skimp on the shipping.
You do not have to choose a painting just because it is well known or by a famous artist. Some people do, because they feel that it’s a better investment as a resale product, but that’s not always true. Art - quality art products - will always be appreciated and therefore they will maintain their value whether you choose to keep it or want to sell it in the future. Meanwhile, the painting that suits your company’s image best and improves the business environment is the one that will be worth more to you as a final choice.
Finally, don’t think of artwork as a last minute addition, to come after the new furniture and flooring go in. Start planning your wall decorations as soon as possible because a museum quality hand painted oil reproduction can take a few weeks to be completed, especially if it’s a custom piece. If you want your painting(s) in time for your grand opening or special event, leave plenty of time for delivery and then for framing by a professional frame maker. If you choose a frame company outside of your area, you’ll need to account for more shipping time. The walls of your business place are very important, and the masterfully reproduced oil paintings hanging there will be an amazing entertainment to the hearts and minds of your clientele. Don’t disappoint them.
