As 2016 is coming to a close and we are looking again forwards to a new year, it’s exciting to take a look at what has been in trend this year and what is set to arrive for the upcoming year. Indeed, while trends in design are something to chuckle about in some way (after all, who decides a trend is a trend?), these are good details to bear in mind as a builder looking to stock up on lighting fixtures for the new year. Indeed, working with the team at Bold Home Supply to ensure that the fixtures you have on hand are the ones you will need is a great choice. This home lighting distributor is ready and waiting to work with you to ensure you make the most out of the trends of the new year and are ready to provide your customers with the lighting fixtures they need. To this end, learning what the new year has in stock is a great first step to take towards helping your clients get the home lighting they’ve been hoping for. Here are some trends to keep an eye out for as we approach the new year. In particular, we’re seeing a turn towards some more retro trends, and styles that are returning to us from days gone by!
- While the minimalism of recent years certainly isn’t going anywhere, we are seeing more of a move towards an “industrial chic” look, with very simple and stark fixtures that are often paired with similarly metallic and often cold looking appliances and seating. This industrial look goes well with the stainless steel appliances that are more and more often included in homes. This minimalism and turn towards the industrial look certainly hasn’t gone anywhere in recent years, but is definitely poised to make a comeback this upcoming year.
- Retro: Perhaps due to a feeling of nostalgia for days without technology and with a simpler look and feel to life, the retro look is definitely returning to us. This is seen in the use of brass in fixtures as well as the bright and almost unseemly colors that were so often seen in those days. As part of this equation, you’ll also see this coming up in the way that the lighting fixture are designed and placed in homes.
- Big and brassy: As mentioned earlier, the brass look in home lighting is certainly making a splash, especially when that brass look is used in combination with larger fixtures. Indeed, this trend of making the lighting fixture the centerpiece in the room is something that is becoming increasingly popular in home lighting.
You can see that there are many new trends arriving and still more to come. When you are a builder or are hoping to work with clients to develop the kind of home that they want to love and live in for years to come, pay close attention to these details. The better aware you are of what’s ahead, the better able you will be to anticipate their wants and needs.
