Whether you’re an artist or an avid collector, few can deny that displaying a piece of art can have a profound effect on a space. While paintings may be the first to come to mind, sculptures and other unconventional works can take up even more than wall space. As we all know, collections, seasons, preferences, and other deciding factors are all subject to change. But facilitating this change can be incredibly difficult, especially when certain pieces can be very unwieldy. Luckily- we have the solution.
Chances you may not have an original Monet or Picasso, but there are artists who are still alive whose work is already worth huge sums, and those investments in their work are only going to increase. This is why investing in art can not only be personally fulfilling, but could provide quite a payoff one day as well.
Conventional wisdom would dictate that attics and/or basements would be where you would store your extra works. However, transport, weather dust, rodents, and other factors can quickly damage and devalue your pieces. Also- a good number of us don’t have the luxury of “extra space” for these types of items, meaning they may take up valuable room in a living space while not being displayed. A good way to prevent all of this from happening is keeping these pieces at STORBOX.
A unit at STORBOX would solve these issues and more. Having a storage space can give you a clean, organized, and secure area to store your works, which can free up valuable room in your home. If you own a considerable amount of oil on canvas paintings, a climate controlled space can prolong not only the elements of the painting, but can preserve the frame as well. Other art with fragile materials may also benefit from this type of a unit as well. Not only will doing so protect the physical elements of your works (especially if it is a mixed-media piece), but it will also protect the investment of your collection as well.
Regardless if you’re an artist or collector, few can deny the priceless value of a piece of real art, which is why properly storing such items can be absolutely crucial. Contact us at (626) 407-3439 if you have any questions regarding a space!
