Transform Appearance of Your Room
You can use sculptures to change the look of the inside of your home as well. A lot of the same elements
that you can use in the garden to make it more reflective of your personal taste can also be used indoors to make
your home feel more comfortable and cozy for you. If you want your home to express your own personal style or if
you just want to change the look of your home without spending a fortune you can do it with some great
Here are ten easy ways that you can use sculpture to change the look of your home.
Nothing changes the look of a room like a high quality lamp. Aside from giving light lamps are great focal
pieces that can really center a room. Add an accent lamp or a pair of lamps that are made from unique sculptures
and your old furniture and décor will suddenly look brand new and different.
Mirrors brighten a room and give the illusion of more space. Using a mirror that has a unique sculpted
base or frame can also add a unique touch of personality to the room. Mirrors sent into wrought iron frames are a
very popular way to change the look of a particular room.
Sculpted clocks are a great focal point for a room, especially hand carved grandfather clocks or small
decorative folk art clocks. The more unique the clock is the more you will change the look of the room. Just make
sure the clock isn’t so unique that it doesn’t go with anything else in the room.
Room diving screens are an elegant way to fix a space problem and add a touch of artistic flair to a room.
Hand carved wooden screens or screens that are hand painted are very popular. So are wrought iron screens that have
photo sculptures or photo collages in the center.
There are hundreds of different kinds of wall sculptures that you can use to make your home more
comfortable and more unique. Metal sculptures, wall sconces, hand carved shelves, photo installations and other
types of wall art can be functional and beautiful at the same time. Custom wall art is a great option if you want
to make sure that you have a one of a kind piece of sculpture for your home.
Choose classical pieces like wrought iron Victorian style sculptures or modern sculptural pieces that take
up an entire wall or anything in between. The possibilities are practically limitless when it comes to changing the
look of your home using sculptural wall art.
Just like in the garden you can use architectural elements like sculpted arches, brackets, columns and
pedestals to define a space or to add visual interest. These architectural elements are fabulous in studio
apartments or open houses to define set spaces and make the space feel more structured.
Nothing will change the room as fast as a large sculpted coffee table or a few sculpted end tables. The
type of art that you use in a room really sets the tone for the rest of the room and using sculpted elements adds
artistic flair and personality to a room.
You probably don’t want an eight foot tall reproduction of Michelangelo’s “David” statue in your living
room, however some cute, small concrete or stone statutes can add a lot of personality to a room.
If you have a love of frogs then placing a concrete frog statute on a bookcase or peeking out from behind
the closet door can add some fun to the room. Do you love rabbits, deer, or other animals? Add some statues of them
to the room. Would you love to have a dog or cat but can’t have a pet in your home? Get sculpted pets so that your
home feels more comfortable.
Fountains are beautiful sculptures to bring indoors. If you love modern art you can choose a simple
fountain that has a slab of sculpted marble or other stone. If you like something a little more ornate you can
choose a more classical design that has some statues or other classical design elements.
Fountains aren’t just beautiful to look at it, they can really help you relax and make your home more
peaceful. Studies have shown that having a fountain in your bedroom can help you sleep better. Replace the TV in
the bedroom with a wall size fountain and chances are good that you’ll notice a definite increase in the amount and
quality of sleep that you get.
While most people don’t really consider aquariums to be sculptural pieces they definitely can be. If you
have a large aquarium with a Greek style stone, hand carved base that will definitely change the look of a room.
Or, commission a local artist to create a beautiful hand carved wooden base for an aquarium that you can use as
additional storage too. Love a more modern look? Have an aquarium set into a modern art piece or even into one of
your walls to create a fantastic modern sculptural look in any room.
These are just a few ideas that you can use as a starting point to bring sculpture into your home and make
the time you spend at home more relaxing and more peaceful. If you want truly unique pieces to decorate your home
and garden, of if you want to help other people find that perfect sculpture for their homes and gardens you can
learn how to make your own sculptures.
