Popular Interior Design Trends: Did You Know You Can Buy an Industrial Aged Bronze Ceiling Fan with Light and Be Under Budget?
We all want to have a beautiful home reflecting some of the popular design trends we see featured in interior design magazines and those hit shows on HGTV. The problem is that most specialty decorative items and furnishings are costly and fail to fit into most budgets.
Lighting is a critical element to any interior design scheme. The lights must be functional, and if a ceiling fan with light is the product you intend to install in your home, then it must provide the right amount of airflow, be perfectly sized to fit the space, and be aesthetically pleasing while fulfilling one’s design requirements.
Industrial decor really came into popularity about a decade ago, and it continues to dominate the world of interior design. The problem is that authentic pieces from salvage companies only fit into limitless budgets, and even high-quality reproductions from most boutique shops are outside of most people’s price range.
The trick is to find a ceiling fan or other industrial lighting fixture that’s the right size, has the right finish, and won’t blow your budget.
Interior designers and savvy homeowners are starting to discover the value of industrial lighting outside of an industrial setting. The Jaxon low-profile industrial charred iron ceiling fan with light from Arranmore Lighting is a masterful example of modern industrial lighting design. This upscale ceiling fan is extremely affordable, with a sticker price of under $300.
An Overview of Industrial Lighting
The word “industrial” makes it sound like this type of lighting is only meant for industrial settings, but it’s actually a design style that can be used anywhere.
The style did get its start in the industrial world, however, inspired by the minimal fixtures seen in places like warehouses and manufacturing plants. These kinds of lights are still used in industrial buildings today, of course, but the chic look has become a hot trend for all kinds of spaces.
One of the reasons industrial lights are so well loved is that they capture the nostalgia of yesteryear without all the embellishments and patterns of other vintage styles. This makes vintage industrial lighting perfect for combining with today’s other modern, minimalist trends.
Common Characteristics of Industrial Lighting
Industrial lights come in all shapes and sizes, but they have a distinct, identifiable style. Even those with no knowledge of interior design can recognize industrial lighting fairly easily.
Some typical characteristics of industrial lighting include:
- Minimal, utility-centered design. In an actual industrial setting, the fixtures are designed only to meet a need and function well in that environment. This means there are no decorative details or artistic flourishes. Industrial lights for homes and other spaces follow that same kind of design, even though they’re being used mostly for their looks.
- Practical industrial materials like metal and glass. Industrial spaces are designed to be as safe and durable as possible. Fabric shades and other materials are less resilient than glass and metal, and could pose a fire risk in certain settings. Industrial lights used as decor have more freedom to incorporate other materials like aged wood, but metal is usually still a primary material.
- Vintage aesthetic elements. Many industrial lighting designs are inspired by the early history of electricity. Bare bulbs, visible filaments and light-directing metal shades bring to mind the laboratories of inventors like Edison and Tesla. Various brushed metal finishes can also give the light an antique style.
The Variety and Flexibility of Industrial Lighting Design
The industrial style is a versatile one that allows for a lot of freedom when designing lighting. An industrial light fixture can be as simple as a single hanging bulb or as complex as an intricate chandelier.
Examples of different industrial lighting designs include:
- Pendant style lamps. These hanging ceiling lights might feature metal or glass shades of varying size, or a cage-like metal enclosure around the bulb.
- Wall sconces. Wall-mounted lights might look a bit like a streetlight, with a metal shade suspended by an arm. They can also be more like a kerosene sconce, with a bulb enclosed in a glass cylinder.
- Industrial chandeliers feature multiple bulbs suspended in various ways. Bulbs might be attached to a single downrod, dangled and draped across hooks, or mounted like candles in circular tiers.
- Ceiling fans with lights. These combination fixtures can incorporate various industrial style fans and light bulb arrangements. Industrial fans often feature a metal cage around the fan blades, which gives it an authentic, stylish look.
When It Comes to Finishes, a Charred Iron Ceiling Fan with Light Is Among the Very Best
There are several reasons why interior designers and homeowners might choose a charred iron ceiling fan with light for industrial lights indoors.
First, charred iron is nostalgic, and it resides in the recesses of our imaginations. Charred iron has been around since medieval times, and it instantly makes one think of brute strength. Yet, when adding elements of charred iron to a room with lighter shades and a feminine design, it can help balance the “gender appeal” in the room, which is why it is a popular finish option for both men and women.
A charred iron ceiling fan with light can easily fit into any room. If you have a living room with wood beams on the ceiling, a charred iron light (especially a ceiling fan) in the industrial style, will make the room’s presence pop, as charred iron and wood look beautiful together, and the historic look of ceiling beams in all their rustic charm will pair nicely with the charred iron light.
A charred iron ceiling fan with light also pairs well with most contemporary kitchen designs. White subway tiles are still the most common backsplash material and option for feature walls used by kitchen designers today, and a small, flush-mount charred iron ceiling fan looks amazing in such a space. In addition, the charred iron components of a stove will play nicely with the ceiling fan, and if one displays their cast iron cookware, the charred iron light will also pair nicely with those decorative and functional pieces.
The Best Charred Iron Ceiling Fan with Light Will Have Attention to Detail
One reason why the Jaxon charred iron ceiling fan with light is a top seller is due to the fact it has a striking wood grain finished base.
