All the Look - Half the Cost

Posted on March 13, 2017

In today’s social media enhanced world of fashion and design, we all have the ability to hyper analyze everything from the lighting styles present on popular television production sets to peering into the interior design choices of our favorite film and music stars via a barrage of Instagram posts. With the whirlwind popularity of “get the look” posts on social media timelines where items on a television set or a celebrity’s home are diagramed according to style and brand, your clients can easily research and share their dream designs and inspirations.

For lighting showrooms and interior designers “getting the look” for your clients can sometimes translate to breaking the bank, which often leads to a conundrum where the desired look can be diminished at the hands of cost effectiveness. Selecting the right lighting and and home decor supplier can be critical to achieving the perfect balance between style and cost, which is why the Kenroy Home Product Development Team operates with the philosophy of creating products with 99% of the desired style at 50% of the cost...without sacrificing quality.

Let’s see this philosophy in action with “Kenroy Home’s 3 Quick Tips for Great Lighting and Home Decor for the budget conscious client”        

Tip #1

When selecting a chandelier or other ceiling light, finesse the finish - not the material. Selecting a ceiling fixture with a dynamic and engaging finish and form factor is far more important than the materials used in construction. Yes, soundly crafted chandeliers (like the ones found in Kenroy Home’s extensive line) should employ high quality steel or resin construction - however, faux leather or simulated crystal accents can help rescue a budget...after all, these elements are out of reach from daily use and appear perfectly genuine when elevated on a ceiling.

Tip #2

Multiply your portable lighting savings. Consider purchasing a multipack table lamp set where two or more lamps are needed. Available in a plethora of styles and variations, Kenroy Home’s line of value based multipacks are the perfect solution of night stands and end tables.

Tip #3

Keep it all in the family. Buying lighting and home decor options that perfectly blend and meld together can turn into a tremendous hassle - while you may discover a great deal on a dynamic mid century modern table and floor lamp combination,  the perfect pendant may come at a steep price. Ranging in a plethora of styles, the Kenroy Home design team likes to create “whole home solutions” for each introduction, where families are created with a host of both portable and fixture solutions, and in many cases also includes complementary mirrors and tables.
