There’s one problem with being an avid art lover – one day, you might just run out of wall space to display and enjoy your latest purchase. If you have minimal wall space or you’ve already filled your available space, perhaps it’s time to get a little creative with placement.
Have you ever thought about hanging art in a large, walk-in closet? Or, even behind a bookcase? Placing art in an unexpected room or neglected nook in your home can add a surprising and intimate vibe to the space. Remember to be mindful of conditions such as sunlight and wind when deciding where to place original artwork. And it’s never a bad idea to consult with a designer if you’re unsure of which direction your art decoration should go in.
Here are five off the wall ideas on where you can hang your next piece:
1. BEHIND YOUR BOOKCASE
Where do you hang art when you have a wall-to-wall bookcase? Behind the bookcase, of course! Shelby, a Havenly designer, loved the idea of featuring Cathy’s beloved retro car print within her bookcase. It’s unexpected and adds a bit of color to the white Ikea bookcase.
2. IN FRONT OF A BOOKCASE
We love the idea of featuring a statement piece in front of a fully-stacked bookcase to create a dramatic ambiance. This look adds a level of sophistication to any library or den.
Consider hanging your favorite print on a covered porch, patio, or sunroom! This is an ideal place to let your creativity shine–not to mention, it’ll create a lasting impression for those passing by on the sidewalk!
It’s not the car that makes this garage so striking–it’s the art hanging on the wall behind it! A garage may not be the best place for original artwork, but a large print or framed poster, or a more sturdy piece of art made from reclaimed wood or metal would be a lovely greeting after a long day at work.
What better place to hang artwork than in a large or walk-in closet? Not only does it make the space more glamorous, but it also helps spark some inspiration when deciding what to wear for the day.
