Maybe you have already taken a liking to the gallery wall trend. To really take this look up a notch though, look no further than fabric wall hangings, which add a unique, three-dimensional texture to your walls that they might be missing. In fact, many wall hangings are so stunning, they can hang on their own—and don’t have to be surrounded by tons of other pieces. Rather than fumbling with correctly aligning a picture frame or avoiding a crookedly hung poster, fabric usually makes for simpler installation when it comes to wall decor. While fabric hangings work perfectly in place of paintings and photos in living rooms, they also have the ability to spice up those hard to decorate spots like the space above your bed or a tiny, angular dining nook. They’re equally as customizable and personal as any form of artwork but are the perfect solution for when things start to feel a bit stale, and you’re not looking to spend a fortune.

To give you a starting place with wall hangings, here are 10 ideas for working these textiles into any room in your home, no matter your personal style or the size of your space.
