Remodeling Trends: Lighting & Design Meet in New Fixtures
Updating a home’s lighting can increase its value and refresh a tired room, so lighting shouldn’t be an afterthought in your home remodel. Of course lights serve a utilitarian purpose – illuminating kitchen counters, dining spaces, the living room and so on – but lighting doesn’t have to be boring. Decorative lighting can be a stylish and fun way to dress up any area of your home. Here are some current trends from Team Hatfield (now Alair Homes- Plano).
LED. With energy efficiency and sustainability ever at the forefront of homeowners’ minds, the demand for LED lighting continues to be huge. LED bulbs last up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, use less electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since they last so long. LED technology is advancing rapidly, with many new bulb styles available for a lower cost than just a few years ago.
Hatfield (now Alair Homes- Plano) designers frequently use LED lighting to create eye-catching effects in unexpected places, such as illuminating the toe kicks under cabinetry, and adding light accents behind mirrors, in stairs and in ceilings.
Clean lines and geometric shapes. Many homeowners are leaning toward modern lighting with clean, geometric lines and contemporary materials, following the trend in contemporary and transitional design in the kitchen and bath. Look for bold fixtures illuminating workspaces and islands.
Exposed bulbs. No longer hidden, bulbs are now on full display with fixtures opening up to showcase their inner beauty. The nostalgic Edison bulb isn’t a favorite of environmentalists due to its energy-hogging tendencies, but there’s nothing like the warm glow from a filament bulb for creating ambiance.
Nature-inspired designs. Green isn’t just about efficiency anymore. Au naturel lighting is on the rise, incorporating organic elements from nature such as stone, wood, glass and leather. These elements create interesting shapes that contrast nicely with the current trend toward minimalism in interiors.
