When it comes to art, we just love to get as much in our home as possible, but if your home is anything like ours, you’re a little short on space. While traditional art hanging methods, like a single row or even gallery style, can take up all your wall space, so we asked Chrissy and Matt Droessler of framed & matted to find out what our options are. Here are five alternative ways to save on space and display your art:
1. On or In Bookshelves“This is a great alternative to filling your bookshelves with books, especially if you have a lot of shelf space and not so many books,” says Droessler. We think it gives a nice airy feeling. So, how can you integrate your frames and shelves? The experts say, “Hang a frame on the face of the bookshelf for an interesting look that breaks up the visual lines. Alternatively, you can hang a frame on the back of the bookshelf (or the wall if the shelf has no back.” The Droesslers also suggest lean your frames on a shelf and display with other objects—almost like a cool area of curiosities!
