Set The Mood Right With Perfect Lighting

August 21, 2013

Lighting is functional and transformational. Innovative lighting trends are taking luxurious home design to the future. If you are planning a kitchen renovation, or any type of home renovation make sure you explore lighting. Kirsten Sutton, reVISION’s head designer shares different types of lighting which can be used:

1. Layered Lighting For Your Kitchen Renovation- Largest lighting trend of the year. Creates flexibility through intensity, and lighting up the right areas when you need it most. slider-02Transforms the kitchen into a functional area for the entire family. Combined styles include: under cabinet LED lights, track lighting and wall sconces, etc.

2. Brass, Nickel and Chrome – Metallic accents add unique detail, texture and luxury. Light bounces and glistens off of metallic fixtures or metallic accents. Metallic window frames accents the natural light beaming into your home.

3. Abstract – Large, sculptural fixtures create an artistic statement and function. Abstract shapes and patterns bring character. Coloured lighting can evoke a mood or feeling. Get creative with uniquely shaped windows.

4. Rustic – Country meets urban; rustic finishes are combined with modern shapes and fabrics. A relaxed, but refined look for your kitchen renovation.

5. Crystal – It’s safe to say, this is a classic trend. From contemporary to transitional designs, there is something for every style and budget. DIY: Decorate existing light fixtures with crystals to transform your room.

5. Elegance – Think clean lines with luxurious materials. Simple shapes become more detailed with metallic and unique glass. Sheer or opaque metallic curtains let you play with lighting intensity. Each trend can play a design role in your home renovation.
