Lighting plays an important role in your interior space. When decorating, however, homeowners usually focus on their furniture, walls and carpentry choices, with lighting as an afterthought. Since lighting helps set the mood, emphasizes certain features and visually manipulates the space, it’s important that you choose the best set of fixtures for every room at home. Handyman Connection® of Eden Prairie shares four stylish lighting trends you can try:
Simple Wall Plates. While wall plates are traditionally utilitarian in nature, the right choice in design can dramatically embolden the style of your interior. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each emitting different intensities of light. For modern homes, we recommend choosing minimal yet eye-catching design plates in sophisticated neutral and metallic shades.
Iconic Mid-Century Modern. The Mid-century Modern design has been around for years, and with homeowners looking for more minimalist lighting options, demand for its clean lines is on the rise. The great thing about this lighting design is that its fixtures feature a timeless quality that stays chic year after year. They make an excellent focal point or decorative feature for any home.
Modern LED. This form of lighting is less physically obtrusive than the first two. So, if you prefer a streamlined aesthetic, LED is perfect for you. This energy-saving technology offers sharp light patterns in various colors that highlight certain features seamlessly. You can install them underneath countertops or stairs to provide subtle illumination or use them to flood the room with light.
Luxurious Gold. The right gold lighting fixtures can instantly add warmth and depth to any room. Choose a style that complements the existing design of your interior for a luxurious and striking addition. Not a fan of an all-gold finish? You can try mixing it with other metals like brass and silver for a layered look.
Regardless of the lighting type you choose, improper installation won’t achieve the full effect. Our team at Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie can help you with this. We also offer a range of other home improvement services. Contact us at (952) 777-4875 to get a free estimate.
