Springtime is always a great time to change the look of your home’s interior.  You’re already spring cleaning, so why not change the look of your home with some great new lighting!  Some changes are as simple as swapping out your lamp or fixture.  Others might require some help from experts like Blue Collar Electricians.  Here are some great trends for 2018 that are sure to improve the way your home looks this spring:

    LED lighting is cheaper than ever and looks great.
    LED lighting used to be a far more expensive alternative to traditional incandescent light, but that is not the case any longer.  LED lighting is more efficient and safer for the environment, and it looks great!  The fixtures themselves cost a little more, but the money you save over time will more than make up for the difference!

    Retro and industrial style fixtures are back.
    Big fixtures with metal finishes are all the rage right now and can enhance the look of your home.  You can often find fixtures to refurbish that have intricate details and unique features that make them look more like works of art than lighting fixtures.  They work particularly well in kitchen and dining areas.

    Don’t forget the Edison bulbs.
    If you really want to complete the retro-look, Edison bulbs complement your fixture.  You can also get LED versions of the classic style if you are looking to complete the look. These bulbs are great for adding warmth and a soft beauty to your lighting.

    Bigger is better.
    When it comes to large spaces in your house, go big or go, well, home. Large pendant fixtures are great over islands, tables, in the foyer, and so on and can become a focal point for the décor of your room.
