How to Protect your Home art Studio

Many artists have an art studio in the home or in structures on the same property. Some love to do art as a hobby and gradually it becomes a business for many people. Many people work from home as the fulfillment of a dream or out of necessity to have an art studio in the home. A painter or even sculptor studio is rarely a pristine environment. Spills and spatters do happen so it can be a messy place. Having sturdy flooring that is resistant to some stains is the best choice of flooring. An art studio is an amazing place of colourful artwork, prized possessions, expensive paintings, sculptures, expensive easels, paintbrushes, and many other items which are found in an art studio. Here are some ways to protect your art studio at home.

  • Protect your flooring with cardboard 

Before you start painting or do any other type of art in a studio it is essential to protect your flooring at all times. Place cardboard on the flooring where you are situated to do your artwork. Keep the cardboard in place with painter’s tape. You can also put carpet tacks to keep the cardboard in place and to stop anyone from tripping over the corners. To increase the strength of the cardboard you can also paint over it with house paint.

  • Cover the flooring with a leak-proof canvas drop cloth   

Canvas drop cloths are excellent for covering flooring especially carpets in the home. Unlike plastic, they are easy to spread out and you don’t need to use tape to stick them down. Place them down where they are needed all drips and splatters won’t soak through the canvas.

  • Install a home alarm system and CCTV
