5 Unexpected Ways to Display Your Art

Art is a cornerstone of personal expression, and the way we choose to display it in our homes can say a lot about who we are. Let's explore five unexpected ways to display your collection.

1. Find a Secret Spot

One way to display your art collection is by placing pieces in unexpected locations, or "secret spots". This could be inside a glass cabinet, in a walk in pantry, or leaning on top of a tall wardrobe. By doing this, you create little moments of surprise and delight in your home. It's a fun way to make the most of your space, and your guests will love discovering your pieces.

2. Use Clips or Washi Tape

If you're looking for a way to display unframed art, consider using clips or washi tape. This method adds a creative and playful touch to your space and allows for easy rotation of your unframed pieces. Simply attach the clips to the wall and secure your pieces, or line the edges or corners with washi tape and stick in place.

3. Use a Picture Ledge

Picture ledges are a great way to display your art without having to hang them. Ledges can be installed at any height and allow you to lean your art prints against the wall. Picture ledges offer versatility as you can easily change the arrangement of your collection, add other decorative objects, or layer multiple pieces.

4. Create a Floor Display

For larger art, a floor display can make a bold statement. Lean your chosen pieces against the wall, either directly on the floor or on a low shelf or console table. This method adds an unconventional and casual element to your space.

5. Showcase Your Art in a Bookcase

Bookcases aren't just for books anymore. Place smaller prints amongst your books and other objects, lean them against the back of the shelves, mount them inside a cubby, or hang along the edges of the case frame. This creates visual interest and allows you to showcase your art in a unique way.

Whether you prefer a traditional approach with frames and hanging hardware or want to try something a bit more unexpected, the key is to choose a method that reflects your personal style and complements your home. Remember, art is meant to be enjoyed, so display it in a way that brings you joy.

Experiment with different arrangements, rotate your prints, and don't be afraid to try something new.
