Most Americans are ready for a change for the better. A great place to start is the home — especially since we’ve spent quite a bit of time there the past year. Here are a few lighting trends homeowners should consider if remodeling their home in 2021.
1. Carefully crafted ceiling lighting
Most homeowners think of lighting in terms of providing light and serving a functional purpose. But lighting can also be used to create a relaxed ambience and transform a room into a cozy space during winter.
In 2021, elegant and extravagant light fittings will be available in a wide range of styles, from contemporary to cottagecore. Artful lighting with metallic details will reflect and bounce light around the room, creating a dazzling effect.
2. Sculptural table and floor lamps
Lamps can also be used as works of art that can be admired even when the light is turned off. A pair of table lamps placed on either side of a sideboard or console table can be used to accentuate the furniture.
Floor lamps placed next to an armchair or sofa can create a comfortable reading spot. Floor lamps can also be used to light up a hallway corner.
3. Bold statement lighting
Bold lighting pieces in unique sculptural shapes, unusual textures or colored glass can make a style statement even when the light is turned off. No need to spend thousands of dollars on a painting or sculpture if the lamp reflects a homeowner’s style.
4. Brushed and polished brass
Warm tones of brushed and polished brass will be popular in 2021. Homeowners should pair lighting with an elegant yet subtle shine or matte finish with furniture made of natural materials, including marble and wood, and some man made materials, such as concrete, to create a more contemporary effect.
5. Eye-catching bedroom lighting
With Americans spending more time in their homes and bedrooms, lighting in these living spaces will play a key role in setting the mood and atmosphere.
6. Thoughtful home office lighting
Remote workers looking for a change in their work environment should consider lighting that exemplifies workmanship and carefully-curated style. Lighting can also be used to create an environment that supports focus and productivity.
