How To Choose A Sculpture For Your Home

September 28, 2020 10:29 pm

When it comes to interior design, it always pays to spend as much time as you can in your living spaces before making any decisions so that you know you’re choosing pieces that will work well and complement your house, and which you’ll enjoy for years to come – especially important if you plan to spend a significant amount of money on something.

Where sculptures are concerned, you’ll need to think about the size of the piece, as you don’t want something so large that it takes over the room but you also don’t want something so small that you barely notice that it’s there.

A common mistake that people often make is going for something on the small side, which means it gets missed – remember that your sculpture should serve as a focal point in the room, without being overbearing.

Also think about the overall style of the piece and how it will tie in with the rest of your home decor choices. If you’ve gone for a contemporary aesthetic, your sculpture should complement this, while traditional design would benefit from something in a similar vein.

Materials are another consideration you will need to bear in mind and do some research into before you make a decision. There are lots of options, everything from terracotta and alabaster to ceramic, marble, bronze, plaster… it’s all just a matter of sitting down and looking at your home, deciding what would look best.
