Top 4 remodeling trends influencing lighting design

In 2014, consumers are expected to gravitate towards new methods of self expression in the home, showers over tubs and multi-generational living. Explore what’s trending – and learn how these trends affect lighting design.

1. Self expression: Through bold colors and ornamentation, homeowners are predicted to openly express their unique personalities with home accessories, jeweled colors, layered textiles and more.

Pendants are a great way to cater to every homeowner’s specific design styles and tastes. Progress Lighting offers pendants in a variety of shapes, styles and finishes.

2. Showers over tubs: Homeowners are looking to enhance the shower experience by forgoing tubs in newer homes. Curb-less showers are an increasingly popular feature.

Progress Lighting’s LED recessed downlights are water compatible and ideal for shower settings.

3. Classic, modern looks: The industrial modern trend of 2013 will shift to more classic, modern decor. Products with a relaxed feel, rounded designs and raw metal finishes are predicted to be popular among homeowners.

Progress Lighting has responded to this trend with new collections that feature both traditional and contemporary elements.

Asset is one of five new collections for 2014 that features a classic, modern look in the popular Brushed Nickel finish.

4. Multi-generational living: Homes with multi-generational features that can accommodate aging parents or boomerang children are important to homebuyers.

Progress Lighting offers lighting ideal for aging-in-place design, including LED options that are gentle on aging eyes and lower energy and maintenance costs.
