Interior lighting can make a huge impact on the look and feel of your home. Not enough light, and your home will feel dark and gloomy. Too much, and it will be hard to relax in the constant glare. Lighting should be attractive as well as functional, and it must be chosen with that intended function in mind. That being said, lighting design is constantly changing. Here are some of the newest trends that should be taken into consideration before making any lighting changes.
Statement Pendant Lights
Gone are unobtrusive kitchen pendant lights. Statement pendants have taken their place! These fixtures tend to be large and give a modern twist to classical shapes through the use of unexpected materials, such as the combination of metal and wood. Popular pendant styles include clear orbs, mini chandeliers and dome-shaped industrial pendants. While most often used in kitchens, pendant lights are also popular in foyers and dining rooms.
One way to bring a modern touch to your home is through the use of geometrically-shaped light fixtures. They are works of art in and of themselves, and also display intriguing light patterns. The unexpected contrast in shape and material makes geometric light fixtures perfect counterbalances for rooms with a more rustic feel.
LED lights have been around for years, but recent innovations have made them even more popular. The main attractions are still their energy-saving properties and the fact that they are the most environmentally-friendly lighting option out there. New technologies have provided consumers with an even greater array of styles, colors and levels of brightness to choose from. They can also be easily integrated with smart home technology.
