A SLANTED mir­ror or piece of art­work hung on the wall is not only frus­trat­ing to look at but a po­ten­tial dan­ger too.

If a heavy piece of decor falls un­ex­pect­edly, dam­age can be caused to the prod­uct, build­ing or even a per­son in the vicin­ity.

While work­ing in a St Ives mir­ror shop, Ben Wheal­ing recog­nised the need for an ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional to in­stall mir­rors and other items in peo­ple’s homes.

Af­ter the busi­ness closed its doors ear­lier this year, he founded Per­fectly Hung, a home decor and wall mounted TV in­stal­la­tion com­pany.

“I had a lot of cus­tomers ask­ing ‘can you in­stall my mir­rors for me’?” Mr Wheal­ing said. “It’s not just that they don’t have time to put it up but that they want the safest op­tion for them and their fam­ily.”

An av­er­age

job

might in­volve hang­ing eight pieces, rang­ing from large mir­rors to small art­work.

“We’ll dis­cuss where they’d like them in the home, what would be the best fit­ting and how to make sure they’re se­cured safely,” he said. “You’ve got to take a lot into con­sid­er­a­tion, es­pe­cially if they have kids.”

He also sells about 50 dif­fer­ent styles and sizes of mir­rors on his online store.
