Trends in home lighting aren’t limited to light fixtures and floor lamps. Today we are going to take a look at some of our favorite trends in home lighting that have emerged in early 2016. From finishes to energy efficiency to illuminating the small spaces in our lives, homeowners have more options than ever before. Not only does the right lighting instantly upgrade the aesthetics of a room, it can also increase convenience and energy efficiency, making your home more comfortable and livable than ever before.
Cabinet and drawer lighting
Lighting interior spaces in cabinets, drawers, and freestanding cabinetry furniture continues to gain in popularity with homeowners. Not only is it a simple, elegant solution that makes everyday life more convenient, adding drawer and cabinet lighting is also an excellent way to transition to a universal, aging-in-place design that can help you stay in your home longer.
Be efficient with LED lighting
LED lighting is hugely efficient, with the potential to save the United States billions in energy costs in coming decades. Whether you are planning a new construction or a remodel, renovating with LED lighting can contribute to significant utility savings.
Reflecting a strong design aesthetic with lighting
Strong design themes—vintage, farmhouse, Danish modern—can all be enhanced with the right light fixtures. Whether you are aiming for a contemporary or a retro vibe, choosing the right finishes goes a long way toward completing the look of any room. If you love a rustic vibe think warm finishes like brass, bronze, and gold, while those seeking a more contemporary look can choose cooler finishes in pewter and silver.
Bold fixtures as statement pieces
Don’t shy away from that amazing light fixture or chandelier—create an entire room around it! Statement fixtures are very “of the moment” and can instantly transform a space, or at the very least give you an inspirational jumping off point for a renovation. Not sure where to start?
