Do you collect a lot of musical instruments, but you do not just want them to be stored away? Or rather, you have a lot of musical instruments that it are hard to store? You could also be a music lover and wants to show it off. Whatever the reason may be, there is always a good reason to decorate a room that has a lot of musical instruments. It is not that hard as you may think and you really do not need a professional interior designer to have that. All you need a good eye and some keen ideas.
The first thing you have to do is choose a theme for your room. It does not have to be always musical, it could also be travel-themed with the instruments inspired around the world or an artistic one or rustic looking. After deciding on a theme, what would be involved next is to decide on the color scheme of your room and that will likely depend on your theme.
Once you have that decided, it is time to place your instruments. A tip for this is that you want to place or store them where you can also conveniently play them. Instruments are bought for exactly that reason, they are not only for display. A very good example of this would be the piano. A piano is certainly a very good display, but it is also a good source of entertainment among guests. Pianos are not simply to be placed anywhere you want though. It would be wise to have them away from windows or any direct sunlight because it can affect your piano’s finish and sound. Another reason is that they are sensitive to climate and temperature changes. The best placement for them would be around corners away from windows and even vents.
You may be also a person who collects guitars and bass guitars. Surely, there are a lot of great guitars out there that you cannot just choose one or have only one. You may have your preferred brand. You could also be a person who likes to experiment and discover different guitars with different styles. This recent article from Pickup Plug about an Oscar Schmidt guitar illustrates exactly why you might want to have so many different types. But how are you going to store that many guitars? You could have them in a guitar case. There are two kinds of cases, the hardshell case and the gig bag. Putting your guitar in a hard case is a great way to store it for the long term. It is heavy to travel with, but it will surely provide plenty of protection.
Gig bags are a good alternative, and though they do not offer as much protection as a hard case, they still do a decent job. With these types of cases, you can also bring your guitar with you o short trips. If you are into showing off your collection, it is nice to be able to display your guitar. You can do this by having guitar stands. Another way is having wall mounts which have a bigger advantage because they also save space. Guitars on wall stands are also less likely to be knocked over.
Another tip to remember about a room having a lot of instruments is to always keep it clean. Instruments have lots of detailed features, and are likely prone to collecting dust. Keeping things clean does not only make your room look good, but it will also help maintain the sound quality of your musical instruments.
It is not bad to have a lot of instruments in your home especially if it is your passion. The important thing is that knowing how to take care of them. Hopefully displaying your instruments prominently will be an inspiration not only for others but for you to be motivated to play more as well.
