2015 is almost here, and with the new year comes a slew of new trends in lighting in Maryland. We at The Light House stay up to date on the latest lighting trends, and here are a few of our favorites for the upcoming year.
Energy Efficient Light Bulbs and LED Lighting
Energy efficiency is the name of the game these days. More and more people are becoming aware of the impact we have on Mother Nature and the environment. So energy efficient light bulbs are here to stay and are becoming more and more popular. Expect to see more people using these types of light bulbs throughout their homes – inside and outside.
LED lighting is the most energy efficient type of lighting on the market today. They generally will last you twice as long as compact fluorescent lighting bulbs, and they will emit light in a more target direction. They are also safer than other types of bulbs because they do not emit any heat.
Pendant Lighting and Mini Chandeliers
Pendant lighting is a great way to add some task lighting to a room in your home. This type of lighting comes in a huge variety of styles, sizes and colors. So you can still get light that is more focused on whatever task you are doing. For example, if you have a spot you like to read in while in your living room, you can get some pendant lighting and use that as a reading lamp.
Mini chandeliers are a great way of adding statement lighting to your home. They are a stylish addition to just about any room in your home, but they are particularly popular as overhead lighting for your bathroom or bedroom.
Bronze and Metal-Finished Lighting
People are loving the look of bronze and other metal-finished lighting more and more these days, it seems. This type of lighting goes well in rooms like your kitchen, where you have appliances that also have a metal finish to them. People want their lighting to match their appliances, which can help give your entire kitchen a more cohesive and stylish look.
