When you want to add a bit of pop to a room in your home, an easy way to do so is with a statement light. Whether you choose from a selection of dining room chandeliers or ceiling fans, this statement fixture can be in a different style or color than the rest of your room. The key is to have it be different in some way, drawing the eye and creating an interesting contrast.
Mix and Match Styles
One of the easiest ways to create a statement is to mix and match styles. While it can be within the same family of styles, such as adding a modern farmhouse-style ceiling fan to a primarily rustic room, you can also switch it up and mix styles. If the room is mostly modern, but you find chandeliers for sale in an industrial aesthetic, you might mix the two to make the chandelier stand out. You may not want to try to add too many different styles into the same room, but a little variation can be striking. There’s a difference between mixing styles and having too many styles, giving the room a confusing aesthetic that does not read as cohesive with a statement piece.
Make the Color Pop
Another way to have a statement light or fan stand out is to have a contrasting color. If the room is mostly light or neutral colors, keep the style in the same aesthetic family but go with a dark color. Black-colored fixtures, from ceiling lights to ceiling fans, are trendy and would work very well in a lighter room. For example, the Artemis from Minka Aire fans is finished in black and has a contemporary look. It will contrast with a modern, light-colored room without looking out of place. Instead, it will create a cohesive look with a color pop.
Go Big and Bold
You can also create a statement piece by having a fixture that dominates the space. For example, you could use the massive Quorum Windmill or Savoy House Farmhouse, both of which are large fans suitable for larger rooms, such as living rooms. They will both dominate the room and can be conversation starters. If you want a chandelier for your dining room that will wow guests, try the Maxim Orbit. Crystals join with a whimsical, free-spirited cage to draw every eye in the room. For something a bit more traditional, try the glamorous and luxurious Savoy House Claiborne by Brian Thomas, which would look at home both in a French mansion and in your dining room.
