Macro Trends of Lighting for the New Twenties

One of the items in our home that doesn’t get updated very often is lighting. When it is time to update your lighting what should you choose?

If you are looking to invest in a new light fitting what is the best style to buy? Getting your lighting just right when it’s time to replace the outdated ceiling fixture takes conscious consideration. Get the choice right and your new light fitting will be the pinnacle of pride in your room for decades.

We all want our homes to be on trend. Be that, a fresh take in a traditional period home or a feature in modern home, we don’t want to be old fashioned. So, what are the defining factors that shapes our choices? The fashions, the age of the home, practicality, the price?

All of the above. We all have a criteria, a tick list that hones choices based on practicality and price without much too deliberation, yet when it comes to styles this has us a little confused. What if we choose something that fashionable now but not next week?

How to choose a ceiling light that won’t date too quickly?

Ensure your next light fitting brightens your interior for years to come whilst still fresh and trendy today. To do this you’ll need to know is which trends are a flash in the pan and which are set to be iconic trends that shape the decade. Choosing a light that sits comfortably with numerous looks is key. That way when you change up the room you won’t need to change the lights too.

Lighting is inherently flexible. The chameleon of interior design, it’s a superpower we adore. One light fitting can work as an mid-century accent in a space yet look equally in keeping in a boho scheme. It has a longevity. Good lighting is to a room like a Rick Astley is to music. Lighting can reinvent itself and appeal all over again. Worth a little thought, especially given you’ll be living with the light for a decade or two. The light fitting that has you saying “ I ain’t never going to give you up” is the one you want. If you feel like this about your lighting you chose wisely.
