And if you really want to add that wow factor in your room, consider getting a custom made hand-blown glass chandelier. Hand-blown glass chandeliers are definitive pieces that exude sophistication and class. Even if hand-blown glass chandeliers are known to be expensive, the smaller ones should fit right in your budget.
