    We have few mural paintings in our home which is done by my cousin. Since the house we currently live in does not have a proper wall where these can be hanged so they are kept in the attic for now. So shall I keep the paintings in the box. Will they stay undamaged in the box?

    As i have search "Never store paintings in the basement or attic as they are usually dry or damp. If you do store in those places, make sure you have adequate and consistent temperature and a dehumidifier."

    Hey.

    IMO, First you need to cover this painting with laminated paper (through the poly-bag) and then keep it under the box. With the procedure you can safely store your lovely painting without any damage.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I am going to have them covered and I have ordered for a storage box from Major Move in Toronto so that the humidity and moisture doesn't damage the painting.
    Once again thanks for helping!
