Recently, a problem was posted on Houzz.com under discussions:

“My room is bland.. something is missing. What can I do to spice it up?”

Here at UGallery we have a solution: Just add art!

When we say “just add art,” what do we mean exactly?

We recommend making the best of your new addition, which means finding distinctive ways to showcase your art that fits you and your space’s style. 

Here are some unique ways that we recommend:

[U]Gallery Wall

Tip: Mix and match different mediums such as photography, oil and acrylic to make a really visually-intriguing wall. 

Picture Ledge

Tip: For those afraid of “commitment,” a picture ledge gives you the chance to change art frequently. Like a gallery wall, don’t be afraid to mix with other mediums such as sculpture and photography.

Off-Centered

Tip: For a visually pleasing space, vary the size of the art. If above a mantel such as this design by Glenn Gissler, try hanging a larger piece while letting the smaller piece lean on the wall.

Tip: Don’t just stick to wire. Try cording, rope, or anything strong enough to create variety in the space. 

Easel

Tip: A great way to casually show off art while avoiding commitment to walls. Try and find an easel with unique style that will add an original artist vibe to the space.

Tip: Like Mark Dodge did in this masculine space, make sure you choose a place that is open with lots of room to avoid creating something that is too busy and crowded.
