Remember there is a good chance that you will be keeping the statues a very long time, so choose wisely.Take time and look at the room where you want to add the piece. What are the colors in the room, is the room more feminine or masculine? If the room is in light colored tones, putting a black statue of a Greek god won’t look good to the eye. The statue will really stick out.

After you have decided where you want to place the statue, you need to measure the space and take in consideration where the wall and the furniture is placed. One very important tip: write down your observations on paper and bring a measuring tape with you when you go to the store to shop. This will save you time ,effort and risk. You don’t want to buy a piece and bring it home just to realize it doesn’t quite fit in.

If you have children who are active or pets or both children and pets, a floor statue can easily get knocked over. The children and animals could get hurt and the statue can get broken. You want peace of mind and spirit with children, animals and statues all getting along under the same roof.
