Become An Expert In Art Storage

Every house, office or studio you visit, one thing will always be there for sure – an art piece! It tells you a lot about the owner of the said painting. Sometimes it is more expensive than the house itself. Fast forward to movies where art or set design is the mainstay on which storytellers pay a lot of attention, when creating a masterpiece.
To jog your memory, Wes Anderson a renowned director known for his outlandish set designs, has his move filled with art décor. The latest among them – The Grand Budapest Hotel. So how do you take care of such priceless piece of artifacts? You don’t need to rob it or put it in a glass casing. It takes proper wrapping and transporting and a safe warehouse storage in Mumbai in place.

Here are some of the storing tips on hand:

Wrap it up

It is not rocket science to preserve a painting. A three layered wrapping method will suffice. First, you need to slowly wrap the painting in transparent plastic foil which is easily available in the market. Secondly, a layer of bubble wrap to protect the edges from being chipped off. Thirdly, a brown paper to seal the deal.
Additionally, when you are transporting the art, thermocol sheets are of great use. See how the packaging guys get your products. Just like that! You can also use confetti so there is a layer of buffer when you hit a bump on the road.

Rack it up

When storing your paintings, always remember to make use of a rack in a warehouse storage. You can create one by cutting 2 x 4 wooden planks and placing it flat on to it. This way you avoid the water from dampening or any other insect from entering the artifact.

Temperature sensitive

A painting or a relic does not like fluctuating temperatures. The paints and the canvas all get damaged because of a sudden change in temperature. Keep paintings covered with an acid-free cloth. So whatever the temperature, no harm is done to it.

Professional packing services

The big players like UPS, FedEx and TPCIndia all have their own ways of handling fragile goods. Depending on the weight, size and storage material used, you can get assistance to transport your goods from point A to B.

Move to a Storage Unit

The final option for you is a warehouse storage in Mumbai, if you plan to keep your art in storage for an extended period of time.

Organising The Perfect Library In Pune

Novels and story books take you out of reality and let you dream with your eyes wide open. There is something so calming yet exhilarating when one reads an engrossing novel. Each novel has a memory attached to it, but also takes space in your bedroom or living room. So how do you keep your favourite novels intact and yet make space for more?

In this week’s article, we will give you some simple home library organisation tips and tricks that will appeal to your aesthetic as well as emotional senses all at one go.

So before you pick on a strategy to organise your library in Pune, one must get down to the nitty gritty of the task.

Follow this simple checklist:
a) How many books there are that need to be organized?
b) How much shelf space there is for all of the books?
c) How often will you make a purchase of new books?

Once these answers get clear in your head, you can go forward with the planning of your library.

The reason behind doing this exercise is that, you will get a sense of how to organise, whether you need an extra shelf to be built and so on. More so when you’re half way done, you will start making changes.

So now on to the different methods of storing your books.

Go ABCD route

The first thing we learn in school is the ABCD i.e. the English alphabets. This strategy is commonly employed by many across the globe. It is an easy and efficient way to organize your books so you don’t need to waste time looking for it. But one must decide which way to organise; either auhor’s name or in terms of the book name. Putting books in alphabetical order based on the last letter of an author’s name in a title helps make a shelf look more oddly arranged. Now if you do use this method, you must have a good memory you can rely on. Imagine having placed books where the author’s name starts with a T or a P and is silent. Instant hara-kiri. This method of book organisation is very reliable and as simple as A for apple.

Title is important

When we say title, we do not mean British Royalty like “Sir”, “Madame” et al, in fact we show respect to the author’s title. Yes, many readers remember the book titles easier than their author’s name. Go do a quick survey and you won’t be disappointed. Approach your bookshelves as if they are a table you are arranging for a large gathering – you would be a bad host indeed if you purposely placed foes next to each other and ex-lovers right across the table from one another. Books are also paired like a good wine and a little bit of cheese.

Colour me silly

Sometimes a book/novel can be boring and story just redundant; but one buys the book because of the cover page. Colour in psychology terms plays a vital role when reading a book. In fact many a times, if a reader wants to read something soothing, she will pick a blue coloured novel, just to release the stress. This type of book organisation in Pune, appeals to the aesthetic side of your brain. It will look pleasing to the eye, even though the books are placed in a chaos. One will find a romantic novel beside a murder mystery, (hey wouldn’t that be an excellent movie). You can create your very own man made rainbow in the living room.
The other sub method in this type is to group them by weight or size, where one keeps the heavier books at the foot of the bookshelf and lighter and easily accessible books at arm’s length.

There are other several ways one can make a library look neat and welcoming. We would love to hear your ideas as well. Post your ideas in the comment section below and maybe you could win an award! (Yes, we do give out awards too)

Helping you unlock hidden warehouse space

Label

Signage

People laugh off when you ask them if their warehouse has the proper signage. The little eyebrow slowly rises when you fail to address this issue. Make your warehouse a safe for your workers with the right placement of signs. Safety signs keep workers aware of hazards, and other safety precautions. India is a vast country with diverse culture and languages. Simple graphs or signs will also suffice.

Zonal

Another simple tip to increase your productivity is to compartmentalise your warehouse. This way you improve order picker ergonomics by slotting your fastest-moving goods in the waist-to-shoulder area of your storage media. So the next time a big order comes in, you know exactly where the inventory lies in your warehouse, and you can get that out for delivery in a jiffy.

Heavy to light

This point is elementary when it comes to stacking or storing your goods. Remember to always place your heaviest items at the bottom and lighter ones on the top. If you want to prevent injuries and major product losses, you want to arrange and organise your inventory according to weight. Makes sense doesn’t it?

Fast moving goods

Another style of storing your goods/inventory is by placing highest selling products right at the front. This aids the shipping and packaging purposes with ease and delivery is always on time. So why cause confusion when you can work smarter, rather than work harder. Stay on point.

Storing your kids artwork for later.

You feel a sense of pride when you see how artistic your child is with their arts and crafts. But sometimes the school over plays the art work card and your home are overflowing with craft work. So instead, you as a parent can boost their self-esteem by framing, collecting said art work, sending them a clear message that you’re proud of their work.

Before you chuck them away, we can help you save, store and get your art work organised without losing its charm and maybe after a decade or two sell it off as masterpieces (you can see a big cheque coming in).

  1. Throw it out.

Yes, let’s begin from the bottom. We know each art work created by your genius child but let’s face it you CANNOT keep everything. Sit down, sift throw the humongous pile of art and start chucking them away. Trust me it is good for your soul. Give your kid the credit he/she deserves; you could hang it on the wall or place it on the fridge. Once it loses its essence just dump them away in the bin.

  1. Display them.

Acknowledgment is very big for your kids. It is the natural pill to boost their self-confidence. You could have a section of in their room dedicated to all their artwork. You could call this place – “My Creations”. Frame them, put a spotlight on them and before you know it, your child will start churning out really cool and imaginative stuff. They could also help in creating quirky little frames too.

  1. The monthly/annual box.

So you are not able to part away with these items. It is hard for a parent, we all agree. So instead of throwing them into a bin, you can adopt the boxing system. This way after every three month elapses; you can take down the art work and store them in a box. Once the academic year is done, your child can sit back and see the art work he/she had done over the year.

  1. Go digital.

Ah yes, we are in the age of smartphones, tablet, phablets and the list can go on. Every Tom, Dick and Harry posts his/her achievements on social media. With this method you can save a huge chunk of physical space and create your album on your laptop with ease.

5. Greetings.

Another way of storing your child’s art work is by simply sharing. Remember the age old way of keeping in touch with each other? Do greeting cards strike a chord in your mind? Then make use of your greeting cards with your kid’s art on it. What grandmother wouldn’t love to receive a special drawing or painting from her grandchild?

  1. Make it functional.

So by now you know your kid loves to create artsy stuff and they have the talent to do so too. Like having a personalised place mat in your house? All you need to do is choose one of your art work and with a few stationary supplies, you can create magic. Why skip on this opportunity?

So what are you waiting for? Get out those art supplies and let your Rembrandt create some masterpieces. You can be sitting on a gold mine.

Tune up and tune in

Musical instruments are often expensive, take up a large chunk of your living space and hence you might want to store them away safely. Sometimes your gigs are few and far between, and the people in your house have made alternative uses to it. Therefore, as a solution, pack and store it safely in a large secured warehouse.

Before you do that, here are simple steps you must follow to keep your instruments in the best condition:

  1. Know your instruments.

An extremely important aspect of storage is the know-how of your musical instruments. Most of them are made of various kinds of wood i.e. pianos, cellos, guitars etc. Also there are metal based instruments like the horn, electrical keyboards, all of which require the right safety measures. Wood and metal have varying shelf live and can be affected with humidity and heat. Therefore, protection is a must.

  1. Clean your instruments.

So you’re now educated about your instrument; the next step is to gently clean your sound machines. This goes without even saying whenever you keep anything in storage. If you just dump it in, dust will accumulate quickly and spoil the metal cords and so on. It is best to use a clean dry cloth to wipe the surface clean.

  1. Climate-control storage of instruments.

A thumb rule when storing your instruments in a storage facility is the climate. Any micro fissures will soon become giant cracks. Even metal instruments suffer since the different metal components expand and contract at different rates, putting strain on all the joints. Many a times dust gets accumulated in the nooks of your instrument thereby leading to corrosion and wastefulness.

  1. Dissemble your instruments.

It will make packing and storing a lot easier. So, your mouthpieces, need to be detached, unscrewed and kept aside. You drums and guitars should be loosened to prevent strings being snapped and your skins being warped.

  1. Case your instruments.

Store your instrument in a proper case. The case should be designed for the instrument. Drums should be stored in individual cases. Any nuts, bolts and stands should be stored separately in boxes. If you are dealing with a piano, place a tarp and a cloth over it. A tarp will ensure dust and debris doesn’t get into the delicate inner workings of the instrument.

  1. Elevate your instruments.

The best practice to store your instruments are at a height. Sometimes due to a natural calamity like storms, water might seep in or condense on the surface of the case causing damage to the instrument. Use a platform or pallet; they can help insulate the instruments in winter times from the cold concrete floor.

If you need to store musical instruments, but are unsure of where to do so, call the professionals at BoxMySpace and let them help you find a storage solution for your unique needs.
