The at-home Gallery Wall is an interior trend which been growing rapidly in popularity over the years and it's no wonder - they are a striking feature in any room when executed well! Utilising a Gallery Wall is an excellent way to show off artwork and photographs and can be made as personal as desired through the addition of sentimentally valuable family items. What's more, they're relatively easy to achieve in a room with right angle corners where ceilings are parallel to the floor. However, they can be much trickier in an often-overlooked space which can have an even more remarkable impact: the stairs!
Most staircases have at least one large expanse of wall which tends to be ignored when it comes to finding a home for art. This is sometimes due to its transient nature; a staircase is a functional part of the home thought of by some as a means to an end rather than a space in its own right. It may not even enter one’s mind when visualising wall space around the home. Another reason the stairs are left unloved is accessibility. Hanging artwork requires space to move and the use of ladders and specialist equipment. It’s easy to see why the thought of attempting all of this whilst teetering on the edge of a step would put some homeowners off the idea and lead them back to the safety of the comfortably level dining room.
However, bravery pays off! And creating your own gallery wall up a staircase could end up being a real show-stopper in your home. By following these simple tips, getting it right will be a breeze. Your stairway wall will be the first place you head when you have something new to display!
