When it comes to decorating your home, thinking about lights may not be very high on the list of things you want to change. However, the right light can make a big difference in how a room looks and functions. With so many new lighting trends to choose from, you are sure to find the right lights to brighten up your home's interior.
Focal point lighting
Big and bold lights in a unique design or style are getting a lot of attention in interior lighting. If you find a light you cannot resist, just make it the focal point of the room. Whether you fall in love with an antique chandelier at a flea market or cannot resist an unusual geometric light in the home improvement store, focal point lighting lets you get creative with your home décor.
Brass finish lighting
Warm and earthy tones are hot in interior design and continue to grow in popularity. Residential lighting with brass finishes and fixtures is a perfect fit with the nature-inspired colors in furnishings and home accents. Choosing lights with a brass finish is a great fit for any decorating style.
Large pendant lighting
If you have looked through a decorating magazine recently, you have probably seen large pendant lights hanging above kitchen island bars. Replacing the once-popular track lighting in kitchens with pendant lights will make an impact in your kitchen. They also look amazing when used above a dining room table.
Small pendant lighting
Bathrooms and small pendant lighting are the new normal. Installed above the bathroom vanity, small pendant lights will provide you with plenty of light for personal grooming tasks. Pendant lights will also provide aesthetic value to your bathroom and give it a modern update.
Remote controlled lighting
Being able to control your residential lighting remotely can save you money. Instead of leaving a light on all day so you do not have to come home to a dark house, you can turn your lights on with your smartphone or virtual assistant device before you get home. You can also program interior lights to work with your GPS and they will automatically turn on when you are almost home.
If it has been a while since you updated your residential lighting, you may not realize the impact it can have on the appearance of your home. Outdated lighting can make a room look drab and dreary. A well-lit room can transform a dreary room into one that exudes a positive vibe and makes your home warm and welcoming.
