Stay on top of the latest in lighting for your home.
Knowing how to use lights in interior design makes all the difference. A good lighting design makes the environment more pleasant, cosy and welcoming. Check out the main home lighting trends, which involve technology and simplicity.
Residents need to think about the proper lighting for each place in the house. After all, the same kind of light that works well in the living room doesn’t always have the same effect in the master bedroom. Each division of the household has its needs and the resident must recognize this. Another important point is to know the news and trends that are taking over the market.
The simpler the better
Lighting projects abuse simplicity, that is, they are simpler in terms of lines, shapes and curves. The adornments, which were once synonymous with luxury and sophistication, have become unnecessary. This trend boils down to using lights to enhance architecture and highlight objects more smoothly.
The LED that is here to stay
For some time now, LED lighting has taken over homes in Brazil. The big news for this year, in turn, is the combination of this system with automation technologies. With the automation system acting on the lamps in social environments, bedrooms and other rooms, residents will be able to save electricity.
Colour temperature change
Lighting projects are becoming more and more modern. They are able to generate a fantastic experience for residents, such as the possibility of changing the colour temperatures of the lights. This technique not only makes the decoration more interesting but also influences people’s mood.
Did you like the idea of “playing” with colour temperature? So bet on the contrast game between warm and cool colours.
Light rips are on the rise in ambient lighting. They work well in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and any other room in the house. The project that values this trend creates an opening in the ceiling with plaster, forming a kind of drawing. In this tear, you put LED strips to light up space and make it look clean. Traditional light bulbs are being replaced by this direct lighting system.
Want to make the environment more sophisticated? So consider working with focused lighting. In this case, instead of creating a single point of light that illuminates the entire space, the resident bets on built-in lamps at strategic points. This type of light is perfect for those who want to highlight an object, frame or niche in the decoration.
When planning the diffused lighting of a particular room, remember to bet on a luminaire with a charming design that is consistent with the predominant decor style. If the room decor is classic, opt for a crystal chandelier. On the other hand, a modern environment calls for a clean and minimalist lamp.
Industrial luminaires made of copper
The industrial style is high. It influences not only furniture and decorative objects but also the lighting of homes. When assembling the project, consider the possibility of using industrial luminaires made of copper. These pieces, which make use of straight, curved and angular shapes, completely transform the look of the bedroom or living room, creating an incredible game of light and shadow.
Do you want to make your home lighting more modern, however, without spending a lot of money? Then use the spot rails. This system is inexpensive, requires no work and allows you to direct the lights wherever you want. So, if you move a piece of furniture or an object, you won’t have to change the lighting system.
Natural light input
Favouring the entry of natural light is a lighting trend. To do this, it is worth betting on large glass windows or even hollow wood.
Hot and cold lighting
In order not to suffer from fatigue and headaches, residents should make good use of hot and cold lights. Warm lighting, which has a more yellowish colour, is indicated for spaces of well-being, rest and relaxation. On the other hand, cool lighting is perfect for increasing concentration and highlighting both colour definition and textures.
