Where Should You Put Your New Piano In Your House?

You have purchased a new piano and scheduled delivery a few days from now. The only problem is that you don’t know where to put it in your home. However, there’s no need to panic. Our Bay area piano sales company is happy to help you figure out the perfect location for your big investment.

Consider the Acoustics of Your Home

The location of your piano in the home affects how it sounds when you play it. For example, placing the piano in a carpeted room will result in a softer, muted sound. This can be a good option if you share your home with several people. They can enjoy listening to you play, but it won’t present a huge distraction to them. On the other hand, a room with a tiled floor will allow your piano to produce more robust sounds that reverberate throughout your home.

Avoid Exposing the Piano to Sun

Whether you’re interested in Bay Area piano rentals or you buy a piano outright, we encourage you to avoid placing it near an open window. Although it might look attractive in this location, it also exposes the piano to sunlight that can damage it. The rays of the sun can contribute to peeling of paint and varnish in addition to accelerating the process of rusting.

Consider Fluctuations of Indoor Temperature

Think about how the temperature in your kitchen changes throughout the day when someone cooks a meal or opens the refrigerator. Now consider what would happen to your piano when placed in a room near the kitchen. Just as when placing it next to a window, positioning a piano near a kitchen exposes it to temperature extremes that could cause extensive damage.

Other areas of your home can have huge differences in temperature as well. You don’t want to place the piano anywhere near the furnace, air conditioner, vents, or radiators. Finally, avoid placing the piano near the bathroom, laundry room, or any other room that experiences a lot of humidity.
