What’s The Best Way To Display Sculptures At Home?

Think about it, the moment you walk into your house, there is a good chance that your eyes are drawn to the sculpture. It’s an instant focal point and can be used in any room of the home. Whether you place it on a shelf or on a table, it will make an impact. These sculptures are not just for interior designers; they’re for every homeowner who appreciates great design and wants their home to look its best!

It’s a well-known fact that sculptures are expensive, but not everyone knows how to display them. It’s all about finding the right spot for the art in your home and it can be tricky! Luckily, we’re here with some tips on where you should put them to get the most out of your investment. Read more below!

Look for the Ideal Location

There are many considerations when placing sculptures. Consider where people will be able to view the sculpture from various angles, and how much space is available in a given location. If possible, place it on a pedestal or somewhere that has clear views of all sides; if not then experiment with different spots before settling on one spot for the best display area. 

It’s also important to consider whether there are other activities happening nearby that may obstruct viewing time such as walking by while watching TV – these should take priority over placement decisions made solely based on aesthetic factors like size and shape alone!

Make Use of Themes

Asian-inspired sculptures add an element of classical beauty to a living room or bedroom. Angel sculptures give lightness and brightness to any space they are used in. They work nicely with candles, flowers, heart-shaped objects–or for love-themed events by adding votive candles or floral arrangements. 

If you want your hallway to have a strong presence then use candleholders alongside figurines on the shelf that complement them well; also big paired sculptures positioned in foyer spaces will make it look timelessly elegant and chic!

Arrange Sculptures in Groups

Create a cohesive sculpture group by using sculptures that are related to the same topic, era, or kind. For example: if you’re arranging sculptures for an animal-themed zoo exhibit then display animals of different types in one area; geometric forms and shapes would make good additions to a modern design space while historical themed pieces might go well with some figures from ancient Roman times. 

Remember not all spaces will work well depending on your desired aesthetic so it’s important to consider how each piece blends into the surrounding environment before purchasing or arranging them!

Bring Your Sculptures to Life

Creating the perfect ambiance for your sculptures is a carefully handled process. If you’re looking to add some light, make sure that it’s from more than one source and be mindful of where those sources are positioned in relation to the sculpture itself: too much or too little lighting can obscure what makes them so beautiful. To accentuate translucent pieces, position lights such as pedestal lamps under their base or behind them; however, avoid positioning any direct illumination near delicate features like faces since this will give off an unsettling horror movie glow!

The Right Pedestal Matters

Make sure the pedestal is big enough to accommodate the sculpture in its center. The foundation should also be tall enough for an average-sized individual to see your artwork from a distance, without it being blocked by other obstacles such as columns or furniture.

Sculptures can be pricey, so it’s important to find the best spot for them in your home. The key is finding a place that enhances their beauty and draws attention to their details. If you’re looking for help with buying or displaying sculptural pieces, don’t hesitate to contact us today.
