Refresh your living spaces with these latest trends in lighting fixtures

If you are looking for ways to upgrade your living room, look no further than excellent lighting to highlight your space. Lighting fixtures are a great way to rejuvenate your mood and décor. Sometimes picking the right light seems like a bigger design challenge than choosing a fixture.

The use of lighting can make or break the overall colors of a room. The illusion of space is defined by light replicated off the surfaces of the walls. Dark colors make the room feel more cramped while lighter shades open up the area. One can also use adjustable lighting to create the atmosphere they want. With options ranging from exposed materials to mood lighting and eco-friendly designs, here are a few trends you can incorporate in your living rooms |


Go green | Today, people have started embracing energy efficient ideas into their home décor. Hence, LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) will be a huge trend this season. They last longer and you can also save on power usage.


Industrial lighting | Industrial wall lights are a strong trend for 2016. Pair industrial designs with rustic-inspired interiors as a way to warm up this popular trend. From bronze to gold to black, fixtures with contrasting metals bring an industrial vibe to your room setting.


Pendant Lighting | Pendant lighting fixtures are suspended from the ceiling by a cord, chain or metal rod and can be hung in combination or alone. They have become one of the top interior trends, and are a cheaper alternative to chandeliers or elaborate light fittings.


Chandeliers | These light fixtures add luxe and opulence to your interiors. If your living room has high ceilings, then a chandelier should be the focal point of the room. Pick a piece that resonates with your personal taste.


Retro revival | Since the herald of simpler times in design trends last year, retro-inspired lighting has been huge. Prismatic glass and fabric shades, brass accents and traditional forms are making a comeback in lighting design.
