3 unconventional ways to display wall art
Quirky ideas are in and it’s no different with art work. I mean quirky, unconventional ways of displaying your art work to make them more eye-catching. It’s passé to just hang up your art work passively in a vertical or horizontal arrangement or closely grouped together. Take a look at some ideas that are innovative and will help you shake things up:
- I actually saw this at a friend’s house. He’s an art collector/dealer and dabbles in art himself at times too. This was my first taste of art displayed unconventionally. On entering his huge living room I saw many paintings. Paintings framed in all sizes, hung meticulously on every wall with no wall space showing at all and with apparently no symmetry. What an effect! You’re hit by this vibrant deluge on stepping into the room. My friend tells me he took almost a year to find and frame the right pictures according to the dimensions of the wall.
- Emboss a framed art set on to a large center table for a very creative look. The table should take the shape of the framed art work to look impressive. The final effect, with the heavy glass topping, has a three-dimensional look and calls for some skillful work. But the end result is fantastic.
- Another idea that’s always appealed to me is when you display art work over doorways when the place has high ceilings. Displaying a group of pictures in a step arrangement or in a straight line over doorways and windows reduces the height of the ceiling for stunning effect.
The idea is to let yourself go. Get quirky and unconventional and think out of the box to display your art work in a way that displays it for maximum effect.
