Hanging Art Unconventionally: Tips and Tricks for a Perfect Display

Art placement has the power to transform the atmosphere of any space from ordinary to extraordinary. By finding unique areas to hang artwork, one can create an innovative and intriguing environment that captivates guests and visitors alike. 

Find a Unique Location

Find high foot traffic areas where artwork can be viewed often and by many. These can be places where one typically wouldn’t hang artwork such as around doorways, by staircases, or on high-quality surfaces like wood or marble. 

Unconventional placements of artwork can create a visually stunning and differentiated display that reflects the personality and flair of its surroundings. By finding creative areas for art, you can transform typically underutilized spaces into visually stimulating environments. 

Displaying Your Art

Hanging artwork in unconventional places can often be difficult to execute without damaging walls or surfaces. Drilling into the walls of rental spaces or high-quality surfaces may not be feasible and can be expensive to repair. Consider other methods of hanging art that go above and beyond drilling, protecting the integrity of your space. 
One such alternative is STAS picture hanging systems, which, as seen above in the diagram and below in use, provide a drill-free and nail-free solution for hanging artwork and wall decorations with easy-to-install picture rails. These protective systems allow for those unique placements and groupings to be executed with ease. STAS makes it possible to add a unique flair to your home or business without the anxiety of damaging your walls.
