The trends of interior design are fickle and always in flux. This is reflected strongly in the world of lighting. Fortunately, adding statement lights can be an effective way to make radical changes to the face of your property without breaking the bank.
Here are some of the big trends for 2018
INDUSTRIAL CHIC WITH A TOUCH OF VINTAGE
The stripped-down, hipster-inspired designs of the urban-industrial décor trend remain an ever-popular inspiration for lighting and décor as a whole. Particularly hot in the kitchen or the bathroom, here are some examples
A massive statement chandelier will never go out of style, but if your space doesn’t allow this retro comeback is a great conversation starter
RUSTICS IN THE BATHROOM
No longer to be left solely to down lighters or (worse) fluorescents; bathroom lighting is another chance to place eye catching rustic lights. Wall sconces around the mirror or even a small chandelier are big again this year
STILL GOING GREEN
Sustainability always an issue, homeowners are still looking to use energy savers in their homes, with LEDs and CFL globes between the best options, saving 25%-80% less electricity and lasting much longer than incandescent globes. Solar lighting is way to go to landscape lighting. Although most fittings these days can accommodate these globes, check with your manufacturer before purchasing
Here’s to a breathtakingly beautiful 2018!
