We asked our resident lighting experts, "What are today's lighting trends?" Mayer has the scoop; here are the top five:
1. Above Average Bulbs
There are more light bulb options today than there ever have been before. Green options are becoming popular not only because of energy savings and environmental consciousness, but because the quality of LED light has drastically improved lately. Most people assume LED means you are going to get light with a blue tint, however that's not necessarily true. LED lights come in warm color temperatures as well.
Choosing fixtures with unique finishes is the way to go to add character to your home. EllaHome and Regina Andrew are two popular lines that we carry in our showrooms. I should really just let the fixtures speak for themselves.
The more unpretentious, salvaged, repurposed, and even factory floor look of the Industrial Style has become popular in lighting and the options are limitless. Whether your style is more rustic or modern, there are options out there for you.
An increasing number of homeowners are looking for high design and style when it comes to light fixtures. Two of our most popular high design lines are Visual Comfort & Co. and Hubbarton Forge. Lighting by these designers has the ability to transcend time. What does that mean? Much like a little black dress, high design never goes out of style. These fixtures have a way of looking traditional and classic, and young and fresh at the same time.
Gone are the days of sticking to one family of lighting for your entire house. Unique light fixtures definitely aren't going to blend into the background. Instead, they can become a feature item adding personality to any room. We can help with that! The experts at any Mayer Lighting Showroom can help you find a way to say "IT" with your lighting design- whatever "it" is for you.
