When you have invested the time and cash by framing a piece of coveted art, a picture, or sports memorabilia, you will want it’s attributes to be on full display in your home. It wouldn’t do to have it languishing in a disused corner of your home, or accompanying art of a different motif. Your choice of location can be vital in how this piece is viewed within your castle.
As with real estate, so too does location play a huge role in the placement of your framed photo or memorabilia. The viewing distance must be able to take in the entirety of the piece, while details need both a long and short viewing distances to be properly appreciated.
Along with this, the lighting in the area of your piece must properly reflect the colours, and the detail, of the piece. It must be well-enough illuminated to grasp the intricacies of the piece. However, direct sunlight, and even indirect reflected light, can fade your coveted piece, even behind the best of frames. It pays to place them where they will not be exposed directly.
Another option for highlighting your piece is the installation of independent lighting, aimed directly at the piece, in the form of mini spotlights. These can be used only when the piece is desired to be seen, and can be turned off – to prevent fading, and save energy – when you are not around.
