A new masterpiece graces the once empty wall in your home. You feel the pride and joy that often comes with adding a piece of art to your collection. You’re ready for it to be admired. But, what’s the best way to display it and show it to your friends and family?
Art lighting showcases your art like a professional.
Whether you’ve gotten your art from a high-end auction house, or you’ve painted your own pièce de résistance, you’ll want to showcase your collectible art in a way that commands attention. No doubt you’ll want your artwork to be the focus of the room.
That’s where art lighting comes in. Art lighting has the power to turn your artwork into a beautifully lit masterpiece. It makes viewing your art an illuminating experience.
And while you’d think it a simple feat to light up your art, it’s not as easy as it sounds. In fact, you could almost say it requires a certain amount of creative flair. You need to use the right kind of light in relation to the logistics of where your art is displayed. If you’re going to go the extra mile in casting your artwork in the light it deserves, you may as well do it correctly.
Whether you’re a novice collector or a seasoned pro when it comes to collecting and displaying art, you’ll want to learn more about how art lighting makes a difference.
Is it really that important to add lighting to my art?
If it was important enough to you to acquire new artwork for your collection, it’s just as important to install light. When you think about the rest of your home, light is important, is it not? It sets the mood in each room.
And while your room probably already has light, it likely doesn’t have the right kind of light. And it probably isn’t located in the right place to truly light up your artwork. The correct lighting complements your art.
Chances are, you have fluorescent or halogen bulbs lighting your home. Florescent bulbs tend to dim and change hues over time. Halogen bulbs produce infrared or ultraviolet heat that can actually damage your artwork.
The modern, appropriate solution is to light your art with LED bulbs. The beautiful, magical thing about LED lights is that they adapt to their surroundings. You don’t need to be an art designer to know how to use them.
They alter their output to recreate the light that’s needed. So, if you’re displaying a landscape, the LED light will produce light similar to outdoor lighting. LED lights provide just the right amount of light you need in all shades and tones. This can help to make your artwork more alluring.
Best of all, LED lights are long-lasting, energy-efficient, and won’t harm your artwork. LED lights will be one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
