Check Out These Hot Lighting Trends for 2021

The world’s first indoor electric lamps made their way into homes in the 17th century. More than 50 years later, scientists developed the fluorescent bulb, and the incandescent light bulb we still use today was created by Thomas Edison in 1879. Interior lighting has come a long way in modern history, and these days it’s less about the magic of delivering light to an interior space than it is about making a statement in a room with one of these hot lighting trends.  

A light at the center of attention

A well-designed light can carry the interior design of an entire room if done right. Aside from serving as an important function in your dining room, consider making a statement with the ceiling light that you choose. Go big, be dramatic, take a risk with this lighting trend. There’s a good chance it will pay off in a big way. 

Have fun with lamps

Lamps are the most flexible and versatile indoor lighting option on the market. And the real beauty is if you tire of them, they aren’t prohibitively expensive to replace. So have fun when you’re considering lamps for a space. Consider interesting shapes. Incorporate unusual material choices or color. With any luck they’ll look more like pieces of art in the room than a regular old lamp. 

Go with color and patterns

There’s nothing to fear about incorporating bright colors and patterns in a space. And if you do so with removable objects like lamps and pendant lighting, you can always redesign in a few years if your tastes change. Choose the lamps and lighting in your room like you would the accessories you wear with any given outfit. Eclectic is all the rage in 2021, and bold colors and patterns fall right within that design realm. 

Consider glass

Blowing glass is one of the oldest art forms known to the modern world. To watch a master at work is captivating. Consider incorporating blown glass into your spaces via lighting. The bottom line is that lighting is equally about how pleasing it is to the eye as how useful it is to your life. Have fun with it.
