NAIL YOUR MOUNT CARE REQUIRED WHEN HANGING PIECES
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.”
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.
