It’s hard to believe how soon 2022 is coming up. While we continue to process the last two years, we can also begin to gear up to the next year and what design styles and trends are going to come alongside it. One of the most fun and attractive pieces of interior design is lighting. Lighting is, indeed, the brightest decoration in every house and there are countless ways to incorporate it into your home’s style. This upcoming year is bound to be a fun one when it comes to lighting styles, and we’re more than excited to see how designers incorporate these trends into their projects. Here are a few lighting trends to try out in 2022.
Trends that lighting designers have begun to incorporate into their styles are matte fixtures. Instead of the normal shiny or metallic coatings, lighting styles with matte finishes are becoming increasingly popular.
We’ve been seeing colors like black, white, and pewter as some of the more popular colors, but people have also been having some fun with their color choices. This style is popular among those who have a more modern-looking home, but the style can truly be incorporated anywhere due to its simplicity. Try out a matte chandelier for your dining room or some white sconces in the hallways!
Art Deco Shapes
The roaring 20s are back, and they’ve brought art deco along for the ride! These bold and gold geometric shapes have been taking over the lighting world, and there are so many reasons to be excited. Not only are they fun and creative, but they also have a timeless appearance that won’t go out of style.
Two fixtures that have caught our eyes are chandeliers and pendants, both of which have shown us some very unique looks. Try them out in kitchens, dining rooms, studies, and living rooms!
Long, Linear Pendants
Sleek and elegant, linear pendants have a way of captivating a room. They’ve been very popular, especially recently, and for good reasons! This style is a good way to add balance to certain rooms, including kitchens. Designers have been using them over kitchen islands as a way to add a useful lighting source in a very fashionable way.
While pendants have always been a favorite in kitchens, people have also been incorporating them in hallways, living rooms, and entryways. If you are thinking of selling your home as is, but want to make some staging updates, this style of pendant is sure to wow buyers and make your home appear more valuable!
What’s great about “vintage” being in style is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on decorations. Vintage is a catch-all description for a look that is anything from retro to antique, and you can really make it whatever you want it to be.
Some vintage looks we’ve encountered include older-style chandeliers with candles and bronze finishes to industrial ceiling pendants. While many lighting retailers carry these styles, you can also try your luck at antique malls and markets to find items that are truly vintage.
Gold and Silver Lamps
Whether you want to sell your home fast or you’re just looking for ways to spruce up certain rooms in the home, floor lamps are a great place to start.
Gold and silver floor lamps with decorative shapes and features have been popping up left and right. They’re an easy way to add necessary lighting to a room while also giving it a little bit of edge in the style department.
These silver or gold floor lamps are normally paired with an opaque, single-colored lampshade, but designers have been switching up the style with some unique shapes and colors. The options are endless.
In our opinion, sconces are oftentimes an overlooked and underappreciated lighting fixture. However, in 2022, that’s going to change. Sconces are wall lights used to add extra levels of light to ceiling lights. We’ve been seeing a lot of retailers selling fixtures that have a wide variety of styles, many of which are unique and creative. From basket-styled shades to metallic finishes, to neon shapes, there truly is a look for everyone. Keep a special eye out for these styles this year and let your creativity soar!
When we say “handmade,” we’re talking handmade by some pretty craftsy people. Many artists have been putting forth some impressive designs for lighting, and they’re taking the lighting world by storm. Some of these styles include weaved chandeliers, paper-star pendants, and fun fabric-style sconces. The creativity seen in some of these pieces is beyond unique, and both homeowners and business owners alike are using these fixtures in their setups! Looking for some inspiration? Etsy is a good place to start!
