Despite being integral and the foundation of any home or business decor, lighting is not often talked about as much as carpets or furniture. It’s time to give the spotlight to where it is due this 2022. Here’s a look at the lighting trends that will continue to gain popularity this year.
Everything is becoming smart through the years – from phones, appliances, and vehicles – now the technology also applies to lighting. Smart lighting devices allow you to control how your space functions, feels, and looks. These devices also have layers of light, and you can integrate them with other smart home technologies for automation.
Oversized Lighting Pieces
Most homeowners in the past would try to combine their lighting or completely hide it. Minimalist and simple designs are still trendy, but many people are now adding oversized and intricate lighting pieces to their homes. Open living spaces have become more stylish, so the use of oversized pieces makes homes not only feel more welcoming but also less empty.
For instance, if you have an open and big dining area, a minimalist style won’t likely work. You need oversized lighting fixtures that will stand out. When you consider a big chandelier for this space, you can make the overall look of your dining area balanced.
Brass and Black Coating
The brass coating is popular and used in interior design, including home decorative pieces, kitchen appliances, tables, and lighting fixtures. If you want your space to have a luxurious feel, you can opt for pieces with a brass finish. You can also match this with black for contrast and exude warmth and comfort in your space. Brass and black lighting fixtures are good if you don’t want the usual gold and silver combination.
Green and sustainable products are trendy in many industries since more people are becoming more aware of making the environment better. Aside from using energy-saving bulbs, many people consider fixtures made from natural resources such as bamboo and wood.
Most people choose minimalist styles since they’re simple and practical. This will continue this year with more people choosing lighting fixtures with white, grey, and black finishes.
