New Year’s diets may be in your plans, but a possibly more practical way to sharpen up a great new look for 2016 is to add aluminum mounted artwork to your home (or office) decor.
Wood and glass framing is elegant and perfectly suited to homes and office spaces that are decorated in a traditional style. Deep warm wood tones, elegant solid and patterned fabrics, architectural embellishments, are enhanced with a beautifully framed original artwork.
But more and more decorators are choosing a contemporary or modern eclectic approach to decor and the richness of elaborate frames sometimes overwhelm the cleaner lines of these spaces. Simpler, thinner wooden frames and substrate mounting are making their way into homes and offices in both big cities and the suburbs.
Aluminum mounted prints make a striking statement and have many advantages for decorators:
- Neutral yet sophisticated, clean lines and color
- Durable in moist rooms (bathrooms) won’t warp like framed works on paper
- Easy to mount, appears to be “floating” from the surface of the wall
- Brushed aluminum is 1/8″ thick, rigid, with artwork permanently adhered to the surface and protected from staining, scratching and light fading.
If your New Year’s plans include some redecorating, consider the clean, contemporary look that aluminum mounting can give your space.
