Creative Places To Hang Art You Might Have Missed In Your Home

We love a good gallery wall as much as the next person, but sometimes we like to think outside the box in terms of home décor. The next time you pick up a new piece of art or frame a family photograph, try to get creative with your placement. We’re sharing some of our favorite creative places to hang art in your home that you may have missed.

In front of the fireplace

Taylor doesn’t use her fireplace often, so instead she uses it as a platform to display some of her favorite framed prints and stacks of books.

Framed on the fridge

We stick everything else on our fridge, why not use the space intentionally for a mini gallery wall? You can make your own or buy magnetic mini frames in a ton of different styles.

Inside the bookcase

Sure, we use artwork to style our shelves and bookcases all the time, but what about those behind the glass? If you have a hutch or enclosed bookcase, incorporate some of your favorite smaller pieces for a fun twist.

Leaning casually

You can lean artwork in a lot of different ways in a lot of different spaces, but we’re big fans of utilizing your entryway bench as a styling platform. Make it the first thing people see when they come into your home!

In the corner

Corners often get neglected when it comes to décor, but you can create a really cool focal spot by grouping artwork together in the corner.

In the shower

You don’t often see artwork in the actual shower area, but if you’re someone who only uses your bathtub or have a cool piece of waterproof art like a metal print, go for it!
