Spring is just around the corner and that could mean an update on your home’s decoration and design. One of the simplest and most effective ways to give your home a wonderful update without having to do anything too drastic is simply by changing up your lighting.
Lighting can make your house ooze in character and sophistication, or it could make it a drab and character-less space. It really is as easy as swapping out those old lamps with something more contemporary to give your house a whole new fresh look.
If you’re thinking about changing up the lighting in your home, these are just some of our favourite trends for Spring Summer 2019:
There has been a massive shift to sustainable, eco-friendly materials throughout the interior decorating industry and that also applies to lighting trends.
Natural textures and raw materials are the new in thing. Thanks to a growing awareness of the dire straits we have landed our planet in, green living has become an ever-popular trend and an opportunity for designers to create some truly beautiful lights.
You can give your home an organic, earthy feel using lighting fixtures made of materials such as wood, bamboo and even concrete.
The one thing that we love about the current place we find ourselves in at the moment in the interior design industry, is that sleek, minimalist trends seem to have found common ground with more contemporary looks.
There is going to be an increasing demand for signature lights or lights that really stand out in a room. These awesome designer light features are really making waves this year and are an excellent way to add something a little different to your home.
Chandeliers and pendants had a massive resurrection in 2018 and in 2019 so we only expect them to grow in popularity. Whether you put a chandelier in the bathroom, the bedroom, the kitchen or in the lounge, it’s going to look right at home.
Chandeliers come in so many materials these days, from glass and metal to beaded, natural and crystal - there’s simply something for every taste and to suit the look you want for your home.
It was always a given that even though we have embraced some of the styles of the past - a nostalgic trip back down memory lane - there was always going to be those designs looking to break the mould and cater for those looking for the ultra-modern lighting designs.
These come in shapes that are sleek, minimalistic and futuristic. Everything from floor lamps to painting lights, hanging bulbs and reading lamps has been tinkered with and these modern and mystifying representations of the new age will fit seamlessly into any modern, minimalist home.
No, we aren’t talking about lighting that is going to make your garden look spectacular, but rather lighting that is veering away from the traditional vertical hanging fixtures that we know and love.
Vertical lighting spans the width of the room and creates a contemporary, yet clean look to any room in your house. Use exposed bulbs for extra emphasis on the effect that they can have on the lighting in your home.
We seem to be pushing our creative abilities to their absolute peak at this stage of the lighting industry and some of the designs coming out are simply breath-taking. Sculptural fixtures or lamps make a statement in a room and can often be viewed more as art than as lights.
These are some of our favourite lighting trends for 2019. If you’d like to know more about how we can help you upgrade the lighting in your home, please give us a call or simply browse through the amazing ranges on our online lighting store.
