Looking to add a little flair to your dining or sitting room? Changing the lights can bring a remarkable change within your home without the price tag of heavy renovations. Here are a few fresh, fun alternatives to traditional light fixtures.
Once the domain of castles and kings, modern-day chandeliers, like the ones available from Crescent Harbor Modern, are usually made on a smaller scale for 21st century homes. What they lack in size, however, they make up for in grandeur. None of your guests will be able to pass your chandelier without a second look, so don't be afraid to splurge and buy one that looks really impressive!
Clappers have come a long way from the plain, utilitarian models that first appeared on the market in the late '80s. They now come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs, and their hardware can be fitted to almost any electrical unit, making them a easy and convenient option for everything from kids' playrooms to senior citizen bathrooms.
Unlike flush or semi-flush mounts, hanging lights dangle freely from the ceiling, bringing artistry and a certain kind of style to the rooms that they decorate. You can buy them in beaded, spiral or wind chime designs; they might be made of gold, silver or even crystal material; their sizes will range from small foyer fixtures to impressive dining room centerpieces. If you're looking for a unique way to change the atmosphere of a room, a hanging light can make all the difference.
