For many homeowners today, modern lighting ends up being the finishing touch that brings together all the other elements of a design. That approach can be a productive one, but it is also possible to have lighting take a more central role and end up liking the results. Many people, for instance, find appropriately selected chandeliers can achieve things that no other design element could.
A Classic Touch That Can Be Surprisingly Versatile
Compared to virtually all other types of lighting fixtures, the chandelier is one that stands out in terms of its presence and stature. Many years ago, it used to be the norm to add an intricately detailed fixture like this to every formal dining room regardless of the overall design approach.
That might be less common today, but such fixtures still achieve things that would otherwise be nearly impossible to contemplate. A sufficiently ornate and truly beautiful fixture from this lighting family can draw attention in ways no other such accessory possibly could.
At the same time, opting to make such a striking statement does not need to mean being confined to a diminished set of other options. In fact, versatility has become very much the norm, with some modern fixtures like this even being at home in especially sleek, otherwise minimalistic environments.
The Right Choice Makes the Perfect Statement
Of course, selecting the most suitable type and model of fixture will make such results even more likely. While chandelier lighting can be a lot more versatile than used to be the norm, focusing on considerations like the following will make a close match easier.
Material. Most modern designs revolve around relatively simple materials, and fixtures that do the same will tend to mesh the best. Brushed
homelight or glossy enamel often make fine choices even in places where this type of fixture might not be expected to fit nicely. In some cases, a bit of adventurousness when it comes to choice of materials will add visual interest without seeming overly busy or demanding.
Detail. The sparkling, bejeweled fixtures of the past still have their places, but these are less commonly found in rooms where modern designs prevail. Fortunately, there are plenty of
wall sconces , less-intricate products to choose from that can still make productive contributions.
While many would overlook options like these when it comes to rounding out a room with a distinctively modern design, that can be a mistake. In fact, fixtures from this well-known family regularly end up being perfect for such settings.
