Chandeliers are the kind of style stars that have the power to guide a room's design. However, all those crystals come at a cost and take up valuable air space in homes with low ceilings. Fear not, small space dwellers, you can have your chandelier and hang it, too. The bright idea: Shop for mini, small-scale fixtures (often found in the kid's section) that cost less than the full-size version, yet shine every bit as bright.
Less than $150
This tiny chandelier may only measure 8 inches across, but its three tiers of crystals deliver a big dose of glam. On sale for $60, it's tempting to get one for every room.
The secret to finding reasonably priced lighting is to shop the children's section. This mini crystal chandelier from Pottery Barn Kids imitates the look of larger fixtures, but comes at a fraction of the price, and with only an 8-inch diameter, takes up much less space.
