If you read my blog last week you’ll remember that I curated fun ways to get creative with bookshelves, one of them being hanging art on them. That got me thinking about all the different ways to display art in the home, so I decided to devote this week’s blog to that. Here are five innovative ways to hang your art:

1 – Room Divider

Break up two rooms with a beautiful piece of art. Rather than putting up a wall, an art serves as a divider as well as something beautiful to feast your eyes on, keeping the room open and spacious.

2 – Ceiling Art

This last image here isn’t exactly ceiling art, but it may as well be since it’s so high on the wall. Take advantage of tall walls and low ceilings (like the first image), as they are great places to hang art that are generally left blank and empty.

3 – Unused Doors

Don’t let an unused door get in the way of your art! If you run out of space on the walls, a door is a perfect place to spread out onto. I love the way the door frames the art frame. It’s so geometric and is exceptionally unique.

4 – Easel & Light

I typically like to provide at least a couple examples for each trend, but this is a tough one to find good images of! Maybe it’s hasn’t quite taken root yet, but isn’t it classy? Having a light for the sole purpose of showcasing the art really ups the ante!

5 – Above Kitchen Cabinets

There is generally a lot of empty space above kitchen cabinets and I think art is the perfect filler. It brings the eyes upwards and creates an illusion of space. And it looks lovely, too.

What innovative ways to hang art have you seen? I’d love to hear!
