Laser Cut vs Handmade Wall Ornaments

Posted by Pattern Cut on 11/11/2014 to Ornaments, Corbels, Medallions & More

Home is where the heart is. We love our homes, and we decorate them to feel cozy, and practical, and warm, and sometimes cold - we make our homes fit our personalities. So, when you’re in that home decoration, or redecoration, phase, and all you can think about are rugs, and paintings, and wallpapers, and different pieces of furniture, your mind might wander to wall ornaments. They can look beautiful and classy, or hip and modern - it all depends on which ones you choose. And speaking of choices, are you going with laser cut or handmade wall ornaments?

There’s a big difference between the two. Laser cut wall ornaments are generally cheaper, which is very useful if you’re on a tight budget. The whole process of laser cutting is really fast, and it makes it less likely there will be mistakes in the design or production - you really get what you choose with laser cut ornaments. Also, there are very little materials that can’t be laser cut or engraved, so you’ll have plenty of choice.

Still, if you want plaster wall ornaments, you won’t find them in the laser cut bunch. Handmade wall ornaments, even though they tend to be more expensive and take longer to make, will offer you more choices when it comes to the design. And even though they always leave some room for human error, they also allow for more artistic expression, which can increase the value of the ornaments. And then there’s the fact that laser cutting doesn’t really work that well in all three dimensions, which makes it great for cutting panels, but not so good for more substantial types of material. Handcrafting ornaments, on the other hand, are equally good for materials of any thickness.

So, it all comes down to how you want to decorate your home, and how much you want to spend on it. If you want ornamental wooden went grills with a geometric pattern, a laser cut model would be a better choice. If, on the other hand, you want a plaster piece that will be the main decoration on the wall, it’s worth the price to go for handcrafted.
