Top Trends in Home Lighting

Here are the top 2018 interior lighting trends you should be aware of:

LED lighting is the top home lighting trend for 2018 and for good reason! Not only do they come in a variety of styles and colors, but they have enormous benefits for Calgary homeowners, including:

  • Significantly lower energy consumption
  • Lower maintenance and replacement costs
  • The fact that they are 100% recyclable and have a longer life-cycle, which reduces their carbon footprint
  • They come in many different shapes and sizes to suit your unique preferences and tastes
  • They are cooler than incandescent bulbs, lowering their risk of combustion

Consider an LED Retrofit

Are you eager to enjoy the benefits of LED home lighting? Instead of completely replacing your existing light fixtures, why not consider an LED retrofit, which will allow you to revamp your fittings to make them compatible with LED bulbs, saving you time and money in the long run.


2. Retro Edison Bulbs

Over the last couple of years, antique lighting has begun gaining in popularity due to its creative vintage style. These eye-catching bulbs blend in well with a variety of different design aesthetics and they perfectly complement farmhouse style homes, industrial lofts and contemporary apartments.

Inspired by the look of Thomas Edison’s original invention, these bulbs can create a unique ambient glow that brings century-old charm to even the most modern designs.

Design Tips:

  • Use them with rubbed bronze fixtures for a nostalgic feel
  • Hang them in globes above stone countertops for an elegant touch
  • Put them in a chandelier in the dining or living room for a romantic, soft feel
  • Group multiple smaller Edison lights for a bold impact in areas with high ceilings


3. Pendant Lighting

While it’s never a bad idea to put a chandelier in your foyer or dining room, you don’t need to feel like your placement is restricted only to these areas. Today, more and more homeowners are moving chandeliers into other rooms including:

  • Over the bathroom tub - this will surely make those bubbles baths that much more relaxing and a whole lot more stylish
  • Over the kitchen island - not only will this give you more light when prepping meals, but it’ll also add some more personality to your kitchen
  • Over the bed - this adds a romantic, whimsical feel to your personal space
  • In the nursery - this is sophisticated and the dimming light will add an air of relaxation to the room
