Important things to remember before you buy
For ultimate sustainability there are quite a few factors you need to consider before you buy art. Here are the top factors to consider if you want art that will last a lifetime;
Maintenance – Wall decorations that is too hard to maintain is going to be a waste of time and money. Don’t invest in anything that is hard to clean or hard to maintain. Live wall art like succulents are a good example of art that is hard to maintain and is definitely not suitable for sustainable wall décor.
Quality – If you don’t want to replace your art soon then invest in quality. Anything that is going to break soon, get messed up easily or gather dust too easy is not worth your money.
Price – Only invest in wall decorations that you can actually afford especially if you are doing something like a collection or collage.
Scarcity – Don’t choose something that is too hard to find.
Personal value – You shouldn’t buy wall decorations just because it is popular right now. You should buy it because you personally appreciate the décor, because it matches your interior and because you have some form of sentimental value to the piece.
