Artwork Safety and Conservation

Artwork Safety and Conservation

Displaying art is about much more than hanging a picture straight. The location of your artwork can ultimately determine its long-term conservation and safety. Hanging fine art in areas of extreme humidity and moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms and pool houses will lead to significant damage. Similarly, it is unwise to hang artwork next to electric heaters and radiators, as dramatic fluctuations in temperature can cause the artwork to undulate.

Protecting fine art from the harmful effects of ultra violet rays present in both natural and electric light is also of paramount importance. Hanging photographic prints in front of sunlit windows can cause the image to fade and discolour, leading to expensive and invasive restoration treatments later in life.

Our expert Design Consultants will always ask clients where and how they intend to display their art, before designing the frame.
