Lighting Design Trends

August 17, 2023

There’s no better time to say it: Let there be light! In your beautiful, new McKee home, nothing sets the tone quite like optimal lighting. From your open-concept living area to your primary suite and beyond, modern lighting doesn’t just illuminate a room, it serves as a defining focal point as well.

Here is some insight into the hottest lighting design trends, and those that will last a lifetime. Read on and get inspired to turn the rooms in your home into the luminous spaces you’ve always dreamed of.

1) Oversized Pendants Over the Kitchen Island

Yes, pendants are beautiful to look at, but they actually perform a very important function, too. The kitchen island is where you do any number of things — from chopping veggies to reviewing letters. Task lighting in this space is essential, but why not jazz it up a little?

2) A Unique Fixture Over the Dining Table

Part of stunning interior design is doing the unexpected. Instead of a traditional chandelier over your dining room table, why not choose a uniquely shaped or colored pendant or a horizontal chandelier? It’s sure to be a conversation starter when guests come over to dine.

3) Industrial-Style Lighting

Industrial elements are sleek, minimal, durable, and perfect for a modern home. While large industrial items — like countertops or tables — might not lend the warm feeling we all love in a home, smaller items like pendants or sconces offer the perfect amount of interest.

4) Gold or Black Finishes

Don’t call it a comeback… gold has been here for years! We’re just taking brass finishes out of the 80’s and pairing them with matte black for a breathtakingly modern look.

5) Sconces or Pendants Over The Nightstand

If you have a large lamp crowding out everything else on your nightstand, it may be time to consider wall sconces or pendants. Not only will they free up important real estate for books and a glass of water, but you’ll also love their unique look and very practical use.

Lighting can truly make or break your home when it comes to livability. With these design choices, it will become the highlight of every space. Whether you choose a new home in the Bethany Beach, DE area or the Chester Springs, PA area, our team will guide you to the perfect design. Contact us to learn more.
