Who doesn’t love a bargain? Perfection would be living in a world where you could name your price for the artful innovations and creations you select to complete your space. Unfortunately, that utopian concept doesn’t yet exist. Design, particularly good design, is usually delivered at a premium, but a skilled designer knows when to splurge and when to save!
Lighting can be an absolute game changer when it comes to the ambiance of a room. Whether it’s personality, warmth or grandeur you’re looking to showcase, chandeliers can create them all – if done correctly. The size, material, style and price of these fixtures are as varied as the people who seek them. Before you go dismissing these decorative lighting accessories as nothing more than fancy floodlights, realize that in addition to being utterly dazzling (literally and figuratively), they have the added benefit of drawing your eye upwards. Chandeliers often highlight tall ceilings and available space, and they cheat the eye into believing the expanse is greater than it actually is. Because of the numerous favorable qualities, they’re likely to grace the priorities of individuals finishing a room. So, should you splurge or save?
This is an area up for debate in many design circles, but I’ve discovered stunning chandeliers that strongly resemble more costly ones, all while staying in tune with exactly what the client desires. If I can find a gorgeous fixture for a fraction of the cost without sacrificing an ounce of beauty or glamour, it means I get to transfer even more savings to the client. Win-win!
