8 Lighting Trends That Will Be Everywhere in 2022

  • Project Details :

For something so integral to our homes, lighting is often not talked about in the same way decor or other foundational elements of a room are, and in some cases, it’s altogether neglected. The fixtures a house or apartment comes with might suffice, but it’s hard to argue that a sleek pendant or an on-theme chandelier can’t beat the infamous flush-mounted ceiling lights or basic recessed lights found in most homes.

In 2022, lighting trends are looking more brilliant than ever and there is something for everyone and every room, from flashy, in-your-face chandeliers to subtle lamps and bulbs that gently envelop a room in light. Here is how experts are visualizing these trends and key takeaways for actually incorporating them into your own space.

Fun Little Touches

Jamie King from JLK Interiors predicts that “unique and fun finishes” will be popular in terms of lighting come 2022: “My personal favorite style is a metal, whether it be bronze or gold or nickel—it adds an elegant yet industrial component to the room,” she says. “I also think having fun with the light bulbs is a great way to change the look of the fixture.”

Spiral filament, flame tip, or even colored bulbs are a fun way to spice up lighting fixtures you may not want to replace fully. This is a fantastic solution, too, for adapting the same lamp or chandelier to different rooms’ themes.
