If you’re getting ready to restyle the decor of your home, don’t forget to consider your lighting fixtures! Your home’s lighting styles and options are very important to the ambiance but also functionality of your room. Here are some interesting home lighting trends for you to consider:
We mean this term in two ways. First, lighting that is efficient is part of that, like using LED or CFL bulbs or using dimmer switches to use less energy. Dimmer switches are also useful for rooms where different levels of light might be required like the dining room or entertainment room. Ceiling fans are also continuing to be popular by saving air cooling energy. Second, “green” fixtures can refer to a growing trend of home decor out of organic materials like bamboo or wood.
Diversity of Lighting Options
It’s likely you carry out a variety of activities in the same room, whether it’s watching TV or reading or entertaining. Each of these situations require a different type of lighting, whether to set the mood or to be functional. When reading, you want a lamp close by to provide direct light. For watching TV, you’d want the lights off, dimmed or at least overhead to diminish glare. Entertaining guests may require a certain combination that sets a mood of warmth or comfort. We recommend having a few different types of lights in these rooms to meet all the lighting demands you might have.
White And Glass
White light fixtures are highly recommended by interior designers and stylists because they look clean and match every decor style. Glass lights are popular today because of how well they too can complement any room design yet have a more modern, edgy look. These types of fixtures are a great choice because they can become an accent piece all their own.
