When you renovate a room, you likely have ideas of what your ideal space will look like. Dreaming of the finished product is exciting and fun — but having a vision of what you’d like is critical. Why? Renovations and home upgrades are typically an investment of time and money. So it’s always a good idea to give every element extensive consideration. Planning the details is wise, since you’ll want the space to be just right!

Good lighting encompasses both form and function. Having the right lighting can completely change a room’s appearance, and make your space more efficient for daily living. If you’re considering updating your home’s lighting, explore these trends as you choose the lighting fixtures for your space. 


Brilliant Lighting Trends for 2023

1. Integrated Lighting

Adding lighting to your cabinets, or installing under-cabinet lighting in your kitchen or bathroom, can upgrade the look of your space and make it more practical. You can also use integrated lighting to improve the room’s overall aesthetic. For example, if your cabinets have glass doors, you can place decor pieces with in-cabinet lighting to create a beautiful showcase. By integrating different types of lighting, you can instantly add layers and the right amount of complexity to your space.

2. Wall Lighting

Although most fixtures are hung from the ceiling, wall lighting is becoming increasingly popular. Wall-mounted fixtures are trendy, especially in smaller spaces that could use a bit of brightness. Wall sconces can augment any lighting design, giving you the ultimate flexibility with your interior decor.

3. Bright and Colorful Lighting

A great way to make a statement with your lighting is to add a pop of color to your space! Lighting fixtures with blown glass or bright pendants can create a unique twist to your interior design without breaking your budget. Today’s light fixtures are available in various colors and finishes to suit your tastes and lighting preferences. Even neutral decor (another popular 2023 trend!) can be elevated with a fun pop of color through lighting!

4. Sparkle

Your design aesthetic may lean more simple or minimalistic, but a little sparkle is becoming popular in luxury homes. Not looking to spend a lot of money on renovations? You can instantly upgrade the look of your space with premium lighting. A crystal chandelier in your dining room or over your kitchen island (or even in your primary bathroom!) can take your area to the next level and give you that high-end, finished look without going over budget.

5. Layered Lighting

Layered lighting is becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason! Aside from the stylish aesthetic, layered lighting also provides many functional benefits. Each lighting layer creates a different feel, with its own illumination scheme to suit specific needs. With various layers of light, you can make a room feel cozy and warm or bright and welcoming. Different levels of lighting are needed to devise a perfectly lit interior.
