We’re all on the lookout for ways to brighten and enhance our home without spending the kid’s college fund. Sometimes a sense of creativity and a simple change can produce dramatic results. One easy idea? Re-think the lighting in your home. Iron light fixtures can alter the entire look of a room by employing iron table lamps, iron floor lamps and iron pendant lamps in ways that ramp up the wattage and adjust the atmosphere. Iron light fixtures can create an elegant oasis or be entirely task focused.
Wrought iron light fixtures mix well with most decorative styles and colors. Wrought iron chandeliers thought to be heavy and rustic by most homeowners, can actually be found in a light and airy form that lends itself well to a more artful, bohemian feel. Iron floor lamps once a staple of Southwestern and Mission decors, are now welcomed across all interior venues.
Iron table lamps retain their appeal due to the hand forged design of the fixture. Open spaces with specific uses benefit from iron pendant lamps…over a kitchen island, for example, or to down light a bathroom mirror. And don’t neglect outdoor spaces where iron light fixtures add ambiance to porches, patios and pool areas. These bold expressions are a perfect lighting option when properly sealed or protected.
Many “artists” can help create a custom piece at a fairly reasonable price. Work with a professional designer when purchasing a large lighting item such as a chandelier – their knowledge of mounting heights and radiance will help create the perfect iron light fixture “artwork” you desire in your home. Expressive, personal and one-of-a-kind.
