If you ever shied away from sculptures for your home because you feel it takes up too much floor space, think again. There is a wide variety of hanging wall sculptures made from a range of materials and mediums. A wall sculpture will add depth and texture that 2 dimensional paintings cannot.

When choosing a wall sculpture 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 sculptures are a wonderful choice. Think of a wall sculpture as a painting that delivers so much more.
