Not only does the new year mean new opportunities, resolutions, and beginnings, but it also brings forth new trends in interior decor, lighting included. The coming year brings exciting new updates to the standard lighting setup, and many of these options will make their way into showrooms and living rooms across the country. Learn more from the BlissLights blog about the seven lighting trends we’re expecting to see in 2021 and how to incorporate them into your home.
7 lighting trends to bring into your home
Whether you’re looking to take a minimalist approach to redecorating and want simple lighting to match, or fawning over cool geometric designs to make the room pop, there is a lighting trend out there that fits your style. Make sure you are keeping up-to-date with these anticipated 2021 lighting trends:
1) Task lighting for home office
Prior to 2020, you may never have imagined working from home, but now that nearly 42 percent of the U.S. workforce is working from home full time, you may be reimagining your work from home space. With remote work becoming the norm (and even the permanent future) for many businesses, you should create a space that’s comfortable and practical for a home office, lighting included.
Your current lighting might be great for everyday activity, but you are probably noticing it isn’t sufficient for work tasks. Consider adding desk lamps and table lamps to your work area to give you just the right amount of light for those long days on the job. You may also want to consider lighting that works well for video calls.
2) Floor lamps
If you’re searching for a lighting fixture that will brighten things up while also adding some decorative flair to the room, floor lamps have got you covered. These fixtures can act as additional functional lighting, or can be used alone to present a warm glow. Place them in your living room, bedroom, or work area to enhance the entire design of the space.
With floor lamps, the bulb can be switched to offer simple or speciality lighting. Screw in the BlissLight BlissBulb to transform your room into a starry night sky, or enjoy the benefits of a relaxing red or energizing green!

Transforming your world is as easy as changing a lightbulb.
3) Hidden light fixtures
Many modern lighting styles nowadays include hidden and recessed lighting because of their sleek design. Installing recessed lighting in a living room, kitchen, or basement can make the space feel bigger and more open. Hidden light fixtures won’t take the attention away from any artwork or decor you are trying to show off, either. Regardless of where you put them, recessed lighting will accentuate detail in architecture and highlight the best parts of the room in which you install them.
4) Natural design
Spending an increased amount of time at home can make you yearn for the feeling of being outside. Why not add some nature to your design for that peaceful and quaint sensation? Natural materials will not only bring a refreshing new look into your home, but they bring a unique twist to the standard metal you often see in lighting fixtures.
“Having more natural elements in your home makes you [feel like you] have closer contact with the outside world,” said Aya Bradley, home design expert and editor at The Golden. “Indoor lighting with materials like wood, cork, straw, and the like will be big trends in 2021.”
5) Colored glass
Mix art and lighting for beautiful statement pieces or pendant fixtures with colored glass. If your room is focused on natural tones such as whites or grays, a splash of color from a decorative glass fixture can make the space pop. Going for that stained glass effect? Geometric design on glass lights will shine a pleasant, soft glow of colors around your home.
Wanting colored light without having to install anything? Achieve a similar effect with the BlissLights Ark Ambient Aurora Light: create a peaceful mood with drifting blue clouds and a moving green laser aurora for a different, yet still charming color lighting effect.

6) Pendant chandeliers
Add aesthetically pleasing yet highly functional lighting with pendant chandeliers. Great for kitchen lighting, bedrooms, and dining rooms-these fixtures create a send of depth to really pull the room together.
“Pendant chandeliers are the hit of the season for bedroom design,” said Luciana Fragali, owner of Design Solutions. “Exquisite frosted glass lamps on both sides of the bed emphasize the design idea in the loft or modern interior, perfectly fit into the spirit of minimalism in the living room or kitchen.”
7) Smart lighting
Touchless control from a distance is on the rise. Driven by COVID-19, the demand to keep hands off common touch points like light switches has made its way into the decor world.
“Because of COVID-19, and the additional time being spent at home, we see the implementation and use of smart lighting systems in high demand,” Fragali said. “There are many ways to control a light: smart LED bulbs contain software that connects to an app, smart home assistant, or other smart accessories to automate lights or control them remotely, thereby eliminating the need for traditional wall switches.”
Decorative lighting never goes out of style!
No matter the time of year, fun and colorful lighting is always trending. Use it in any room of the house, at any time of day. Whatever your dream, BlissLights can make it happen!
