Stylish alternatives to wall art
Art and photos can certainly brighten up your walls. But if you think outside the frame, there are countless other ideas that are affordable, multifunctional and sure to impress:
Hang your hats.
Turn your hats into a wall collage. For a cohesive look, try matching neutral shades or different shades of the same color.
Install decorative hooks.
These days you can find a variety of styles and designs. Plus, they’re as fashionable as they are functional.
Hang a mirror.
When positioned just right, a mirror can really brighten up your space and make your room look larger.
Wall art doesn’t have to be “art”
Arrange various plates.
Whether they’re mismatched plates you found at a yard sale or your grandmother’s fine china, hanging them on your wall is an excellent way to show off your collection.
Mount a bicycle.
A wall-mounted bike draws attention and saves valuable storage space. And chances are, guests will talk about it as much as they would a piece of art.
Go vintage with vinyl records.
Display your favorite vinyl records in their original covers or by themselves. Frame them or create patterns across your wall.
Get creative with wall designs
Create a pattern with baskets.
Arrange artisan baskets on your wall (you can even use them as shelves)! Just make sure you have a good combination of pattern, size and color.
Bring the outside in with plants.
Hang wall planters and fill them with succulents and other durable plants. If you choose herbs in your kitchen, you can grab them while you cook!
Display travel souvenirs, lights or tapestries. Turn an old window into a picture frame. With a little imagination, you can create your very own stylish personal statement!
