Chandelier and pendant lighting are very popular items at the moment. Homeowners looking to add a touch of rustic to their home can install pendant lights that draw inspiration from the past. Bowl pendants and drum pendants are both very in-demand styles. Even modern chandeliers can add a touch of classical elegance to a home. These are mostly found in entryways and hallways, but even smaller sized chandeliers can be added to kitchens and bathrooms for a touch of beauty. Mini pendants accentuate kitchen islands, bars, and kitchen tables. Surprisingly, these simple pendants can do things like add pops of color to a room or complement the rest of the design.

Energy Efficient Lighting

When it comes to 2016 lighting trends, energy efficiency is the way to go. People are becoming much more environmentally conscious and looking for options and features that will save them money while not compromising on style. Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs (CFLs) or Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) use 66% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer.LED lights come in many forms, shapes, and sizes creating amazing designs while highlighting their bright illumination. Contemporary lighting design trends reveal the lighting fixtures, giving the home a touch of class and elegance.
