With the turn of the New Year, we can see that once again, minimalism still reigns. 2022 lighting trends remain committed to the idea of “the simpler, the better.” The main thing to remember, is that the lighting fixtures in a space do not only act as a light source, but also as an element of decor. Even if the lights are turned off during the day, they still need to serve an aesthetic and design purpose. However, lighting trends are not just about the material, design and style; the basic element of the light source itself is also changing. Smart light bulbs are the buzz among interior designers and the lighting industry, just like environmentally friendly materials were a couple of years ago.
Although LEDs were very prominent in 2021, they will become a must-have for any modern interior in 2022. With a dramatic price drop for LED bulbs predicted for this year, this may very well be the year when most households finally switch to LED light fixtures. Don’t forget to keep in mind that LEDs have an average of 40,000-hour lifespan, are environmentally friendly and incredibly energy efficient. It should be noted that the main trend now is not just energy efficiency, but the focus is on increasing the quality characteristics of the light itself: color reproduction, reduced glare and no ripples.
