The toughest part of the viewing appointment will be choosing your very favorites, so it is best to come prepared! Here’s how you can do that:
~Set a budget. It is important to have a general idea of how much you are willing to spend on custom art for your home before you see the images. This will keep you on track when it comes time to make your decisions.
~Review the product list and have a general idea of how you want to display your images. Do you want to hang photographs on your walls, create a keepsake album, or both? Think about how you’d like to view your images in the next 5, 10, or 30 years. What would you like to pass on to your children and grandchildren? If you are unsure of which direction to take, I’m more than happy to help you choose by going over some of the options with you during your appointment, but if you have a general direction or idea of how you want to view your images, it will create less worry as you’ll only have to make the difficult decision of choosing your favorite images.
~Measure and take pictures of your space. If you are considering hanging wall art, consider where the art would be hung. Measure the areas you are considering and have the measurements with you at your viewing appointment, so you will know what can and cannot fit. It is also possible to see your images in the space if you photograph the walls you are considering and send them to me*. This can help you better visualize what a specific image will look like in a specific space.
*In order to see your images on your own walls during your viewing session, you can send me pictures of the spaces you are considering for wall art and see what specific sizes look like in that space. To do this, follow these simple steps:
- Take a simple sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11) and tape it to your wall.
- Step back, to get a good view of the wall or space and simply snap a picture with your phone (be sure to hold your phone sideways!).
- Text or email the picture (or pictures) to me and I will be able to show your images on your own walls during your viewing appointment!
