Did you know that hanging artwork in the office can boost staff productivity? Or that art in your home can create a calmer environment for your loved ones?
Apart from being wonderful to look at, surrounding yourself with art is great for your emotional and mental health. So it’s no surprise that there are many picture hanging systems available on the market today.
When making your choice, it rather depends on what look you’re trying to create. You can pick up packets of picture hooks at your local hardware store for a quick fix, but it’s probably better to do the job properly.
Achieving A Professional Finish
If you want a really professional look for your home or office it’s best to choose a gallery hanging system. These systems used to be very expensive and used solely by major art galleries, museums and major organisations. But now you can create that look in your home for a fraction of the cost.
Studies into the psychology of work environments show artwork not only boosts productivity but also lowers stress and boosts wellbeing. As functional as they may be, workplaces that are bare of decoration can be very depressing and not at all conducive to hard work.
Some global businesses have become famous for their use of artwork. German investment giant Deutsche Bank has the biggest collection of corporate art in the world. The bank also hosts artist talks, believing the practice inspires and innovates.
Benefits Of Artwork
In tests, subjects who worked in an ‘enriched’ office – that is, one with artwork and plants – worked around 15% faster and suffered fewer health problems.
When you look at workplaces where the Gallery Systems range of picture hanging systems is used, it makes interesting reading. The list includes Microsoft UK, NASA USA, Oxford University UK and Apple Inc USA.
Surrounding yourself with art is a great way to stimulate your brain. As Pablo Picasso said, ‘Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life’.
Reduce Depression and Anxiety
In the home, art creates a wonderful focal point and stimulates conversation. It can also reduce depression and anxiety, boost creativity and make us feel happier and more positive about life.
Having said that, the actual process of hanging art can be very frustrating if you choose the wrong picture hanging systems! Who hasn’t hit their finger with the hammer when attempting to hang a picture?
Then there are the ugly holes in the wall, the mess, not to mention the fact that your treasured artworks are likely to end up hanging crooked. Gallery hanging systems are the solution. They offer a range of sizes to suit your space and the artwork you are hanging.
Solutions That Really Work
The Gallery Systems range can hold artwork up to 30kg and even includes a solution for use with traditional picture rails. Unobtrusive, strong and affordable, they are really easy to use and will give your art display that professional finish.
These systems also ensure your pictures and other artworks stay exactly where you put them! The last thing you want is a painting falling off the wall and landing on the boss!
