You can achieve a whole load of things with the right lighting design. By positioning the lights and fixtures, you can easily manipulate the atmosphere of any space. Lighting design also differs from room to room. What works in the bedroom or the kitchen will not necessarily work in the living room. We may not notice many radical changes in the 2018 project lighting trends but there are multiple notable trends and upgrades that everyone should pay heed to.
1. SOFT GOLD IS THE NEW BLACK
Lately, we are seeing a lot of love towards soft colors. Some of the best interior homes use finishes in greige (grey and beige) and grey. Soft gold is under this spectrum of the soft colors which is a top choice for contemporary decors. When choosing overhead lighting, go for those fixtures that are designed to accentuate the gold. You can also choose fixtures which complement soft gold with other similar soft colors like matte silver or grey.
2. REFINED INDUSTRIAL AND RETRO STYLES
Industrial and retro styles have made a comeback but they are more refined now. Industrial styles have always been centered around colors like neutral colors, rustic finishes and emphasizes a lot on the metal. Give a unique twist to a space with modern retro lighting. It is best suited for wall lighting, dining area and kitchen space. The fixture itself can also be used as a centerpiece to a room or a piece of art placed on the wall.
3. EDISON STYLE VINTAGE BULBS
You can enhance an industrial or retro style with Edison style vintage bulbs. They will give a space that soft beauty and warmth to harsh industrial elements. Using a row of connected Edison bulbs or chandelier lighted with Edison bulbs will give a soft introduction if you want to use retro style. Since they are not extremely industrial, they will give that comfortable touch and give any space a modern touch.
4. ART DECO AND MID-CENTURY MODERN ARE BACK
Art Deco and Mid-century Modern designs in lighting emphasizes unique designs, clean lines and a balance between art and form. Art Deco lighting projects are all about attractive geometric designs and sharp lines. If you love natural shapes that offer both aesthetics and function, then opt for mid century modern day lighting. Add strong geometric touch to a space with overhead Art Deco lighting fixtures. For a slightly informal and artful feel to any room, go for Mid-century project lighting.
5. CLEANER LINES FOR LESS CLUTTER
Modern clean lighting can be easily worked into any space whether it is the bedroom, the kitchen or the living room. Use it as a piece of statement especially as an overhead lighting which will create that simple but bold look. Avoid crowding by other lighting fixtures and let it stand on its own. It will pop out in the form of an accent piece, an overhead light or even a reading lamp.
There are so many options to choose from and your job is to make sure you are not pressured into following every trend out there in the market. Choose one that fits your style perfectly or the atmosphere you want to set in a given space or a room. Trends are there to give you fresh new ideas.
