Lighting Styles and Installation Ideas for 2020 Homes

Even if you are not renovating your entire home, changing up its lighting setup can help you to freshen up the space. Some modern ideas for lighting your home in 2020 include:

Industrial Styles

The industrial style has been popular for a while now, and it is only increasing in popularity. Dark metal elements with exposed bulbs make for great light fixtures, especially when used in chandeliers and pendant lights. Edison bulbs can give off a nice, warm glow while complementing the industrial fixtures, and there are many options available for LED Edison bulbs to save on energy.

Hidden Lights

Using unseen light sources is becoming a popular way of providing soft lighting to a room. Examples of this could include a series of lights hidden behind the rim of a shelf and pointing at the wall or ceiling, or a string of LED’s tucked along the edge of a vaulted ceiling, similar to a movie theatre. Lighting under cabinets has been around for a long time, and they continue to be popular as a source of hidden lighting.

Smart Lighting Technology

Smart home technology is making some differences in how light fixtures are put in. Many smart light fixtures offer various light settings, including different levels of light for different times of day, various colour settings, and the ability to control the entire home’s lighting from smartphones.
