06.01.2023

Displaying art in your living room is a great way to add personality and character to the space. It can also be a fun and creative way to express your interests and tastes. However, finding the right way to display art in your living room can be challenging. 


Here are five creative ideas to help you showcase your art collection in a stylish and eye-catching way:

  1. Create a gallery wall. A gallery wall is a collection of art or other decorative items arranged together to create a cohesive display. To create a gallery wall, start by selecting a range of art pieces in different sizes and styles. Then, decide on a color scheme or theme to guide your selection. Use a mix of frames and unframed pieces to add interest and depth to the wall. Experiment with different layouts and arrangements until you find a look that you love.

  2. Use floating shelves. Floating shelves are a great way to display small art pieces or objects without taking up too much wall space. You can use a single shelf or a series of shelves to create a cohesive display. Consider using a mix of different shelf sizes and depths to add interest and variety to your display.

  3. Hang art from the ceiling. If you have high ceilings in your living room, consider hanging art from the ceiling to add visual interest and drama to the space. You can use wire, rope, or other materials to hang your art in a way that feels organic and natural.

  4. Use a ladder. A ladder can be a great alternative to traditional picture rails or hanging systems. You can use it to display a range of art pieces, including framed prints, unframed canvases, and even 3D objects. To create a ladder display, find a ladder that fits the size and style of your living room, and then hang your art from the rungs using wire or other materials. Experiment with different arrangements and heights to create a dynamic and visually interesting display.

  5. Lean art against the wall. If you don't want to commit to hanging art on your walls, consider leaning pieces against the wall instead. This is a great option for smaller pieces or for those who like to switch up their art displays frequently. You can lean art against the wall on a bookshelf, mantel, or even the floor to create a casual and relaxed display.

Overall, the key to displaying art in your living room is to have fun and experiment with different ideas. Don't be afraid to mix and match styles and mediums, and try out different layouts and arrangements until you find a look that you love. With these five creative ideas, you'll have plenty of inspiration for showcasing your art collection in style.
