When planning to renovate your home or beginning to plan the build, lighting isn’t always at the forefront of your mind. While it might not be your highest priority of design choices, it can arguably be the most important! Picture an empty room and all of the ways that only lighting could be used to evoke a feeling, project a design theme, or set a mood. Whether you want to install lights under the cabinet to tone down the overhead in the kitchen, or strategically place the right light to illuminate your favorite piece of art, lighting has the ability to personify every space, as you see fit. Here are some of the lighting trends we are seeing lately!

Indirect Lighting

Indirect lighting is used in place of overhead lighting with fixtures that direct the light upward to bounce off of the walls and surrounding space. When you reduce the strong overhead lighting and replace it with lighting behind the mirror or up-lighting a wall, you create a calming atmosphere- allowing the space to be gently lit with a diffused look. 

Sculptural Lighting

There is no limit to what you can create with sculptural lighting. From overhead fixtures to nightstand lamps to extravagant chandeliers- the possibilities are endless and the restrictions are few to none. Artists, architects, and designers are supporting this trend by creating art and light in unison. These pieces are typically meant to be a statement in the room, giving you a simpler decision in furniture and details. 

Linear Ceiling Fixtures

Typically used to illuminate your formal dining table or kitchen island, linear ceiling fixtures are sleek and elegant pieces with a variety of designs. They stretch further out into the space of the room versus the traditional single cluster of lights. These lengthy and elongated pieces help to create a modern feel to the area, with several options to select from for light bulbs including the energy-efficient LED bulb.

Marble Based Lamp Fixtures

Elegant and eye-catching, marble has made a huge comeback. Whether it is a tall standing lamp or a shorter table lamp, having a marble base invokes a more intimate and appealing mood as opposed to the standard nightstand or iron base lamp. Having a marble accent is a timeless appeal!
