Multi-dimensional room lighting is staying. This includes using different types of lighting to address various functional and visual effects. These lighting combinations include ambient, task and accent lighting. Hidden track lighting is in and recessed lighting is out. Pendant lighting continues to be hot.
Dimmer switches, automated lighting controls, and low energy conserving light bulbs are viable such as CFL and LED. Using renewable and recycled material are catching on, such as bamboo. Energy savings lamps became a hot topic with the prevalence of global energy trends.
Real materials are in and faux materials are out. Deep metal tones with rustic look will be seen in 2010 lighting trends. Going vintage or high tech in wall sconces is the trend.
Lighting fixtures with elaborate designs and antique hues to them are the trends of 2010. It's all about the rich, yet chic styles chosen to complement a room decor.
