Lighting Trends for this Upcoming Season
Interior lighting is a crucial aspect of your home’s design. You can manipulate your home’s atmosphere simply by how you place the lighting and any kind of fixtures you may select. Lighting design can also alter from room to room for example, what works in the dining room may not be right for the kitchen or the bedroom.
With this in mind, lighting has to reflect the functions and feel of each room. Like any other part of interior design, lighting design keeps changing. Technology is one reason for these changes. As manufacturers are coming up with more and more advanced fixtures and bulbs, homeowners are incorporating them into the home. Tastes and preferences also evolve with the times.
Here are a couple of recent upcoming lighting trends we believe every homeowner should take notice of.
Industrial style lighting
Industrial design has always been based around rustic finishes, neutral colors and an emphasis on dark metal. We are witnessing a vintage aesthetic coming back into popularity but in a very different way. If you look at modern industrial lighting, there are some major differences to what you know as traditional industrial. The word upgraded industrial is used a lot, unlike the warehouse-like styles that frequently come with industrial style, we are witnessing sleeker metals and more varied tones being used for lighting designs. If you are hesitant about introducing some industrial aspects to your home, there are so many subtle styles you can opt for.
Art deco vintage style lighting
For years, Art Deco and mid-century Modern styles have been household favorites.
Moreover, this style of lighting has not necessarily followed trends. It has been difficult to come across fixtures made in these vintage early century styles. However, this is changing with more and more mid-century and art deco designs flooding the market. Art Deco and Mid-century Modern follow a continuous line from the 1920s right up until the 1970s. They both highlight clean lines and unique designs. Art Deco style of lighting tends to focus on sharper lines and geometric features. With mid-century modern lighting, you will notice a recurring theme of natural shapes that combine functional form and aesthetics.
Modern clean lighting features
Modern décor is based mostly on clean and simple forms. Whether it is a modern piece of furniture or style of room – modern lighting is required. Older lighting fixtures often feature ornate metalwork. However, in a modern home, the complex designs are not always integrated so well in a clean styled space.
Frequently homeowners opt for simple and clean lighting designs which fit in suitably with modern decors. A minimalist style has certainly become popular in 2019 and will continue to do so into 2020. These fixtures tend to focus on simple geometric designs, neutral colors and a prominence of form rather than over the top details.
