Styling Difficult Walls With 3 Panel Art Prints
Without walls, there'd be nowhere to hang your favourite art!
But not all walls are created equal, sometimes there's a space where you'd like to hang some art, but the shape or size of the wall is a bit tricky.
Here's some ideas & possible solutions using triptych prints for styling those difficult spaces.
Triptych prints can consist of different sized panels as well as being displayed at varying heights. This makes them an ideal style of wall art for those awkward wall spaces.
Large & Empty Boring Walls
Probably one of the most common concerns when it comes to decorating a space is a large wall that's looking somewhat uninspiring.
Big empty walls can make a room seem uninviting, but you may not want to make it appear too busy either.
Instead of finding a number of separate artworks to fill the wall space, a single large triptych can serve the purpose.
Although a gallery wall layout could be a wonderful solution as well, a triptych fills the space whilst not being too visually busy.
A single image can create a fabulous impact.
A single large triptych made from an impactful image can be a simple but effective solution for filling a large & uninviting wall space.
Add a couple of pot plants or lamps to create a more welcoming feel.

Narrow Wall Spaces
The opposite of too much empty wall space are those narrow & tall areas, such as between windows & doors.
Not a large enough area to hang a single print, but still in need of some décor.
Triptych art can also be 3 images consisting of a common theme.
Because triptychs can also be used vertically, they're ideal for adequate coverage whilst again, not becoming visually noisy.
Smaller sized prints are really effective in decorating tall & narrow wall spaces where a single print simply wouldn't be well proportioned or look balanced.
Not all walls are flat, they can have features built into them.
Protrusions, ledges & just awkward areas that are built out from the wall.
In the image above, the wall was built to act as a shelf.
A panoramic single print would also look good, but a split panel print adds that extra dynamic.
In this instance, a shelf is created by a small recess.
But the area above is another wall space perfect for a triptych art piece.
This leads us on to the next awkward space ..

A wonderful way to break up an otherwise large or uninteresting wall space.
Small recesses are best for ornaments, but larger ones can be utilized for shelving & storage solutions or creating a defined space in a room.
Sometimes a bed, sofa or cabinet can be positioned within the recess.
This doesn't leave enough wall area for a large art print, but a triptych is ideal.
The furniture may not be positioned central within the recess either, but hanging a triptych central to the furniture creates balance.
Even the office can benefit from triptych art.
That awkward or empty recess by the water cooler or coffee machine can be a more interesting space to take a break & chat with your fellow workers.

But there's also those awkward wall spaces on the landing, at the base of the stairs & even under the staircase.
Staircases can be of various designs & this creates unique opportunities for triptych art to be displayed on those awkward wall areas.
Angled & Sloping Walls
These walls are often found in attics & loft apartments.
Because triptych panels can be of different sizes, this allows the artwork to be staggered, similar to how you'd display a triptych on a staircase wall.
Providing the image lines up, the 3 panels can be arranged in any manner that the angle or slope of the ceiling allows.
Hanging the individual panels at varying heights can look really good & displaying a triptych in this way can be used for any wall space for a unique appeal.
Creating A Nook
Sometimes in open plan living spaces, separate areas can be created by arranging furniture & other items to give that portion of the room a sense of purpose.
Placing a kitchen table with chairs against the wall for instance, defines the space for eating.
Having a split panel print above the table will further define the space.
Using chairs, a coffee table or other incidental furniture can create a cosy nook or reading area.
Triptych art will also help to define the space, but it can also be used if you already have a small corner of a room.
You may enjoy reading by the window light & a single chair may look lost.
A vertical triptych will create a boundary, characterising a distinct area.
Hallway, Mudrooms & Entrance Walls
Depending on the size of your hallway or entrance, it can be tricky to decorate the walls.
Hallways can be long & narrow, but a triptych displayed down the longest wall is a wonderful way to lead your guests through the house.
Placing interesting or colourful triptych art at the end of a hallway leads the eye through the space.
