New York Piano Movers’ Guide to Piano Placement in Small Rooms

If your piano playing space is doing double duty these days, you’re not alone! With many of us working and learning from home, you may be wondering how to best position your piano in a small, multipurpose space. Here are a few tips we’ve learned along the way as your go-to New York piano movers!

Prioritize placement away from the elements

When it comes to laying out furniture in a small space, your piano gets priority! This is because it is most likely to be affected by the elements, like heat or cold traveling through a drafty door or window. (The same holds true for moisture and sunlight from the outdoors.) If you don’t have many options in your small space, don’t worry! A pair of block-out curtains can do the trick when it comes to protecting your piano from the sunshine, though you may want to consider more permanent options such as a window replacement down the line if they’re old and drafty.

Store your piano, if needed

Sometimes, our small spaces are temporary (for example, you might be renting an apartment before moving into your new home). If this is the case for you, feel free to enlist the help of Modern Piano’s storage services! We can keep your instrument safe in our climate-controlled facility for your peace of mind.

Consider a smaller instrument

If you don’t already have an instrument, or are considering switching, a smaller-profiled option like a baby grand or upright might be just what you need to enjoy music in a smaller space.

Keep it simple

When it comes to décor and additional furniture, try to keep it simple! You might consider removing furniture or décor that doesn’t serve a key purpose in your space—in fact, we especially love furniture that doesn’t do one job but two. For example, a piano playing bench that doubles as hidden storage is sure to simplify cleanup in your multipurpose room.

We hope that these tips help you achieve a harmonious space in your home—for piano playing, play time, study time and whatever else the day may bring!

Baggett's in Arkansas  Arkansas, US

Dear Sir/Madam: From my first telephone contact with agent Lisa Harrison, to our piano's final delivery, we have experienced nothing but excellent service all the way. Lisa was extremely helpful and responsive to our questions, and concerns, and was very prompt in returning our calls when we left her voice mail messages. The driver, Jared. and his helper, Erick received rave reviews from our daughter-in-law at the pickup address, and contacted us about an hour before delivery, which we had been notified by Modern Piano Movers dispatch, several days ago. They arrived when they said they would, were very courteous and professional from start to finish. Jared and Erick really know what they are doing! We are completely satisfied with Modern Piano Movers service from start to finish. At some point we will be returning this piano to our daughter-in-law in San Antonio, and will definitely use Modern Piano Movers, and hopefully will get Jared and Erick back again. Thanks to all the people at Modern for your great service. Exceeding our expectations is really an under statement. Respectfully, Doug Baggett Hot Springs Village, Arkansas
