Now is the perfect time to replace your interior lighting fixtures. Handyman Connection of Boise is here to install those new fixtures for you, but to find out what’s trending in interior lighting, we turn to the experts at Progress Lighting.
Handcrafted elements add authenticity to a variety of rooms including kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and even home offices. Homeowners can achieve this look by merging recycled materials and vintage accents with modern undertones for a fresh, new design. Fixtures that showcase painted finishes, antique mirrored glass, modernized scrollwork or hand-bent arching forms fall into the artisanal category.
Lighting fixtures that make a bold statement and serve as the focal point of a room are trending. You don’t have to have a large home to take part in this trend – a statement pendant in a kitchen nook or above a dining room table can make for a beautiful style accent. Homes with tall ceilings or a large foyer can also benefit from the increased sizes of today’s most popular lights.
Back in Brass
Warmer metals are expected to gain momentum in 2016. From appliances to hardware to light fixtures – bronze, brass and gold tones are making their mark. Not only are finishes “heating up”, but the freedom to mix metals is gaining in popularity. Gone are the days where one finish characterizes the entire house, or even a single room. Mix and match your favorite metallic tones.
Sail away with nautical home accents. With navy being a top color trend for 2016, complement your look with new fixture designs that incorporate nautical twists. Most popular in homes close to the shore, fixtures sealed with beveled or seeded glass are another sign of nautical influence.
The industrial trend is growing as more homes incorporate vintage eclectic design elements. Pair industrial designs with rustic-inspired interiors as a way to warm up this popular trend. For lighting, fixtures that incorporate steely accents, knob and strap details and mixed metals contribute to the industrial phenomena.
A surge in furniture, textiles, colors and fixtures that were prevalent in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s indicates homeowners’ growing nostalgia reminiscent of “simpler times.” Prismatic glass and fabric shades, brass accents and traditional forms are making a comeback in lighting design.
