Interior Design Trends: Lighting Edition
Lighting trends such as overhead pendants, exquisite sculptural shapes and designs, and bespoke fittings are just a few of the lighting design trends we have seen this year.
Lighting is a crucial part of any design plan. While everything, including lighting, must have a purpose, it must also look good. More so as our attention has been pulled to our homes as a result of the pandemic, and we’re increasingly aware of how crucial it is for our homes to be both comfortable and beautiful.
So, with this in mind, here are some ceiling light ideas for you to evaluate and incorporate into your home.
1. Make lighting the focal point of your design
Dining and living room ceiling lighting designs have become the focal point for spaces in 2022, rather than just being about practicality. Every style, from modern to cottage-core, can be represented by elegant and extravagant light fittings!
Well-placed, ingeniously designed, and expertly constructed ceiling lights can completely change the look and feel of a space. Rather than being the final step in the design process, lighting should be the first.
Don’t be afraid to be bold with your ceiling lighting, bigger rooms may take more daring pieces, but in smaller spaces, don’t hesitate to use unique light fittings, especially if you scale down some other design aspects.
2. Go for bold statement pieces
Select bold designs with sculptural forms, fascinating texture, or colored glass to create a fashion statement even when the light is turned off.
Consider your lamp to be an art piece or a sculpture, with a design-driven finishing touch. A lamp or ceiling light is an excellent method to add a unique touch to a space and to blend modern and traditional design features.
3. Take a symmetrical approach to lighting design
Symmetry is an interior design technique for creating smart-looking spaces, and it works perfectly for lighting trends too. Take a symmetrical approach to lighting for a classic look in your home. Placing two lamps on either side of a mirror or a piece of art is an easy way to achieve this look.

4. Pay attention to bedroom lighting
With the trend for relaxing and unwinding areas in interiors becoming more prominent and vital post-pandemic, the ambiance is crucial, with lighting playing a key part in helping to establish the mood and surrounding atmosphere.
To this end, bedroom lighting is becoming increasingly significant, with eye-catching central pendants serving as a focal point in themselves (even when left unlit), and shapely bedside lamps providing the ideal low-lit atmosphere.
