Every human being needs a roof on his head and once this task is accomplished, he wants to decorate the house as per his taste and the available budget. While decorating, every one likes to see the walls adorned with some kind of art work. It can be done by visiting many art galleries to find the perfect piece but this art is available online for buying too. If one gives a thought then online shopping of art is time saving with better deals , with round the clock service along with a lot of variety offered on different sites catering to the selling of different art forms. But as every coin has two sides, same is the case with buying art online. There can be frauds or fake pieces which look like absolute real and people can be taken for a ride. It is better to keep the below mentioned tips in mind before making the final deal. These are as follows.

A. Before actual buying, it is advisable to check the options available on various sites to check on the variety and the prices. Ads posted on the net and art magazines also refer some sites that can be checked too. Mostly the preferred or liked art pieces are able to form an emotional connect with the buyer and this makes the choice easy.

B. Buying eventually depends on an individual's taste and preference. But while selecting a particular piece, it is imperative to check on the real authenticity of that particular piece. This can be done by checking on the heading or the title of the piece along with the real signature of the artist, the time of the year it was made and the measurement of the piece to see whether it is appropriate for your wall!

C. One cannot ignore checking the details of the site offering the art pieces as they have to be credible enough to be relied upon. Some physical detail in terms of the people working for a particular site with an address and contact numbers is a must! Most of the art galleries which are real, have a customer care reference number for addressing any queries of the perspective buyer. Some online galleries offers a process in which the entire process of choosing, negotiating and buying is very transparent thus ruling out any chance of a blunder.

E. An individual's capacity to spend the money and choice matters a lot in the selection of a particular piece. Many a times, discounts are available but again if a third party or the broker is involved then his percentage share also has to be considered. Those pieces coming directly from the artists will have a definite price difference.

F. It is necessary to be aware of all the buying terms and rules before the actual payment. This will also include the actual price after the offered discount, if any, mode of payment, delivery charges, time for actual delivery and last but not the least the policy of return. Most online galleries offer a week's time for return if the buyer is not satisfied with the piece. This can happen when the actual piece delivered does not match up to the standard of the buyer's expectation and also looks different from the photo available on the net. It is also important to see that while making the payment online, through the bank, no credible information about the buyer's account is leaked. The checking of a quality or a trust seal is also important to see as they are provided to real companies or galleries who are doing a good job in their field and offering best and genuine pieces.

Art in todays time is of tremendous value as it is bought and sold for an unimaginable amount. It can be compared to the other family heirlooms like jewellery and property that is passed on from generation to generation. Since, it is an investment for future for many, it is important to see that the deal cracked must be worth every penny spent!!
