If you are a fan of NFT art, then you know how beautiful and unique these pieces can be. However, if you are not sure how to display digital art in your home or office, you may be wondering what the best way to showcase your collection is.
In this blog post, I will discuss several different ways that you can show off your NFT art with style and sophistication.
So, whether you are just starting out with NFT art or have been collecting for years, check out these fabulous ideas.
Why Invest in NFT Art?
NFT art is all the rage these days. But what is it, exactly? Well, put simply, it’s art that takes on a digital form, from pictures, graphics, videos, and more. That’s right, all of those amazing pieces you see online or in galleries are created using digital tools and imagination. Sometimes they can be accompanied by a physical piece, but today we’re focusing on the digital versions.
Now, if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering how on earth this is even possible. And trust me, I was once in your shoes. But after exploring the world of NFT art for myself, I can say with certainty that it’s a fascinating and unique medium that offers endless possibilities for creativity and expression.
When you start browsing these ideas, you’re instantly going to think about how home decor is going to change in fifty years from now with NFT art.
Digital art has the ability to completely transform a space with the touch of a button. No more taking a photo down, storing it, switching out the picture. Your NFT display can really create a living space.
How Do you Display Your Digital Art?
I had an NFT art piece that I wasn’t sure how to display. I mean, it was a great piece of art, but where the heck do you put something like that (mine was a video NFT).
I started thinking about all of the different ways you could display NFTs and then traveled down the internet rabbit hole of all the cool ways to show off my new conversation starter.
And lucky for you, I took note of the coolest ideas so you can turn your home or office into a digital one of the coolest art galleries.

NFT’s are digital assets, so surely a digital frame could do the trick.
Digital frames have come a long way from the small 8×7 sim card frame rotating family photos that you bought for your Grandma at a CVS for Christmas. They have modernized for the 2020’s. You can display videos, NFT artworks, digital images, and just about anything you can think of. Some of them with just a few clicks to connect your digital wallet to the frame.
Here are some of my favorite digital frames.
Now, TokenFrame in my opinion is the Rolex of the digital frame market. I remember as a kid wishing our photos looked like the moving pictures in Harry Potter. Well, ladies and gentlemen, they’re here. TokenFrame has nailed it as you just sign in with your crypto wallet, connect the wi-fi, and in a few seconds have your NFT collection on full display for your guests to have another reason to hate you. This company really took digital frames to the next level.
I’m really excited to get mine and to update my stairwell to look like the art galleries.
Not a ton of space? Make your TV and NFT frame the same with a frame tv like the Samsung TV Frame. Have your digital artwork on display before you turn on the big game on. Plus, it’s a bonus way to hide your TV when it’s not in use. This is one of the best ways to make a digital frame have multiple uses.
Infinite Objects has created an amazing video print. Yes you read that right, video prints.
Instead of a still photo, get your NBA TopShot on an endless video loop sent to you. The Infinite Objects frame can display NFTs in a digital picture frame for all of your guests to admire. This NFT display is great for video NFTS, or as a unique gift to friends. They also specialize in printed NFTs if you have a still life photo.
How you can place an order is simply upload your video file on the website. You can then edit it with your creator tool, and that it! The video will be printed and shipped to you in no time.
Meural Canvas II
The Netgear’s Meural Canvas II is great for NFT gallery wannabe’s. The way it works is you can download the Meural app and access the public Async Art playlist. This is a curation of 200+ NFT pieces thats open to the public for use.
Now, if you don’t have that much Ethereum to splurge, this is a great option.
Canvia has the look and feel of a real life photograph with many wood colors to choose from Cherry, Black, or White, but then interfaces with a gorgeous digital picture. I think these digital photo frames would look great in a more contemporary or traditional decor home. What’s unique about this digital frame is it has technology to auto adjust to things like light, and can be easily set up with your NFT wallet or loaded with photos. It’s a beautiful way to display our NFT art.
Tokensee is one of the newest frames on the market. It comes in multiple styles, with a more modern, slim picture frame. It boasts multiple features for your NFT display such as an infrared remote control to change the photos, ninety degree rotation, and anti-glare with their screens. But this is definitely a more costly option to show off your NFT collection.
BlackDove Digital Canvas
BlackDove is another company competing in the luxury NFT display space. They have one of the most options in terms of sizes, including one up to 98″. They are gorgeous screens with 4K technology that will really let your NFT art shine. For some peace of mind when spending this much money, it comes with a 3 year warranty.
This one works differently in that you connect to their suite of apps to display your work.
Did you know there are apps to display your NFT’s?
More properly known as an online art gallery, these apps allow you to display NFT art on an app to share with your friends and family.
Think of this LIKE THE Instagram of NFT’s, where you show off your NFT collection instead of what you ate that day.
Showtime is an up-and-coming app doing just that. use Showtime to display your NFT’s, all you have to do is download the app, connect it with your Ethereum wallet and show off your digital art!
They let you show off your personality and contribute to the conversation in various ways like commenting and liking, similar to other social media sites. Its a great way to present your NFT display globally.
Token.art is also an emerging platform to display those NFT’s all in one place.
There are many different ways that you can display your NFT’s, but I would recommend using either of these two platforms to start. They are both easy to use and have a wide audience.
The best and easiest way to show off your NFT is with social media. Right now, the most popular social media outlets for NFT’s are Twitter & Discord.
Check out Jay Z’s Twitter profile pic: yup, it’s a CryptoPunk.
Displaying your NFT as a profile pic is equivalent to displaying your Rolex. It’s a status symbol like all luxury items are.
NFT enthusiasts love to show off their digital artworks this way to gain more recognition. Think about it. The more people that can recognize a photo, the more value it will gain. So for NFT collectors that are doing so as an investment, then you want to display your NFTs in any way that you can.
Twitter and Discord are the largest social media outlets for Non-Fungible Tokens. These platforms will give you an excellent base of viewers to show your NFT’s off.
Metaverse is an entire virtual world, and a great way to display your digital art. This takes displaying your NFTs from the physical world to the digital world. As a three-dimensional, online universe that allows users to create and share content, this seems like an obvious place to put your NFT on full display
Here are a few of the top metaverse NFT platforms:
Decentraland is one of the most popular virtual worlds. And now it’s going a step further by allowing you to show off any of your 2D NFT’s. In this virtual reality, your NFTs will show up as a frame depending on the size of your NFT on various themes. So, if you’re already an avid decentralander, this is the perfect marriage.
Just take a look at their home page and you feel like you’re walking through the Louvre. And that’s the point. They’re well on their way to becoming the most premiere virtual art gallery.
How it works is you get a Pixlr Pass which allows you to see a collection of premiere NFT’s. Now, it’s likely very difficult to get your NFT displayed at this world metaverse gallery, but it’s something you should be aware of. These virtual worlds provide a unique access to artwork no matter what part of the world you’re in physically, which makes it easier than having to travel across the globe.
NFT Marketplaces are another great way to display your NFT’s. They allow you to showcase your collection in a more user-friendly way, as well as trade and sell NFT’s with other users. There are a few different NFT marketplaces to choose from, but the name you’re most likely to recognize is OpenSea.
OpenSea is more geared towards collectors, as it has a wide variety of features that allow you to manage your collection and find new pieces to add. It also has a built-in auction system, so you can sell your pieces to other users.
Although I personally am a fan of displaying NFTs electronically, you could always go the old-fashioned way of printing and displaying your NFTs that way. There are actually some really great QR code versions as well.
Head on over to Etsy and you are going to find an endless amount of options to display your art. There are “plaque” versions where you will print an image, some information about your NFT, and a QR code. They comes in all sizes from small wooden frames to giant poster sizes. Really your imaging is the limit with this one.
4 my nft
This is another company that specialized in displaying NFTs. They specialize in magnetic frames complete with QR codes to NFT wall frames for very affordable prices. This would be a good option for someone just getting started in the virtual world.
Looking to think outside the box? Then you can consider getting your NFT printed on a T-shirt and wear your art. Or maybe a hat, or anything else you can think of. This is definitely a great conversation starter.
What is an NFT Frame?
An NFT frame is a digital frame where you can showcase your NFTs.
They typically are made with a bluetooth or wi-fi feature that allows you to sync up your crypto wallet to the frame. This allows you to change the art that’s featured, and some even include a library of curated art from the company.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How Do Purchase & Protect Your NFT’s?
You can purchase them from an NFT marketplace (like OpenSea) and you will need your NFT wallet to access it.
You can create your own art on platforms like Rarible and SuperRare and then mint it into an NFT.
No matter how you decide to get your NFTs, it’s important that you store them somewhere safe. Just like how I recommend using a hardware wallet for storing your crypto, the same is true when it comes to storing your NFTs.
No matter how you get them, displaying your NFTs is a great way to show off your collection and increase the value of your pieces. So start showing them off today!
Can you hang an NFT on the wall?
There are many ways you can hang an NFT. You could do it the old-fashioned way by printing it out and hanging it like any other canvas through many different ways not discussed (such as printing out at your local print shop). There are also specialized versions with a more “techy” style as we mentioned above on Etsy.
But I recommend a more digital way, by purchasing one of the digital frames or photo frames we discussed above to display artworks. This lets you switch your art with a few taps of a button depending on the mood or time of the year. It really will help turn your space into a living, breathing space. This is also best for your NFT display that involves video.
