Hanging a Sculpture on Your Wall? Of Course You Can by Line Labrecque
If you ever shied away from sculptures for your home because you think they are just for window sills and tabletops, think again. There is a wide variety of hanging wall sculptures made from a range of materials and mediums. A wall sculpture can add dimensions and texture that 2 dimensional paintings cannot.
When choosing your piece, you need to consider its weight and size and the wall you have planned for it. Is the wall plaster, drywall or wood? Is it cement or metal? Is your piece made of lightweight materials? Depending on the medium of the sculpture, you will it need to be supported for its inherent weight? With a little research you can easily hang a lightweight or heavy sculpture on your wall. The right sculpture can transform a room. Whether you are looking for something that will relax or invigorate your living space, wall sculpture are a wonderful choice.
When looking for something to decorate your home, think of a wall sculpture as a painting that delivers just that much more.
