A successful art gallery is a bustling establishment, and potential owners know that only the highest quality and most stylish flooring can truly showcase creative wares. Whether you prefer a sleek modern design scheme or favor a more traditional look, you can help make your space stand out with these helpful pointers for creating a unique and distinguished art gallery.
Sketch the Space
- Once you pick your perfect location, it’s a good idea to sketch your space to help you decide where to place installations and hang canvases. If the building has intriguing architectural features such as an exposed brick wall, open columns, or sloped ceiling, be sure to plan accordingly in order to enhance or disguise these areas. For example, it may be more difficult to drill into certain kinds of brick or stone, while columns in a space can make placing three-dimensional pieces trickier.
Plan Crowd Flow
- How many visitors do you anticipate? If you are like most gallery owners, you plan to have as many guests as possible come in to view your artists’ esteemed work. Be sure to leave an open path so people can easily browse all major works without having to move around a large desk or duck past a wall. For especially high traffic, invest in durable and versatile epoxy flooring. A work of art in itself, this flooring’s unique coating magnifies the space while the fine sheen allows light to perfectly glance off sculptures, paintings, and installations.
Select Design Scheme
- As with the individual works of art, the small aesthetic details can make or break a gallery. Select a base décor for your gallery that truly allows the artwork to shine. Consider investing in white walls so that visitors focus only on the art, keep light fixtures innocuous, and purchase high-quality and sturdy flooring to withstand the impact of constant traffic.
