2023 Lighting Trends with Detail Lighting

Playing a vital role in all homes, lighting helps to set the mood and ambience in each and every room. As we head into 2023, homeowners and designers are taking more time to consider the finer details; ensuring that each and every element of a home’s design is thought out and considered. Here, Piero de Marchis, Director at Detail Lighting, talks through the key trends set to prevail throughout 2023 and beyond.

Ambience is key
Ambient lighting allows you to set the mood and change the ambience in a room. A key part of planning a design scheme, homeowners are paying far more attention to the way spaces in the home make us feel, as well as their function. From dim-to-warm technology to discreetly hidden accent and spotlighting, mood-enhancing lighting is set to continue to be a key consideration for 2023 and beyond, in particular in bathrooms, bedrooms and multifunctional spaces such as open-plan kitchens.”

Multifunctional lighting
Our homes are having to work harder for us than ever before, with an increase in spaces having multiple functions. From open-plan living areas to kitchen-dining zones, the trend for installing multifunctional lighting that can be adapted to suit the room as it’s being used is set to continue to rise. Dining rooms are very often multifunctional spaces; different circuits will allow you to provide different lighting effects and light levels. Perimeter lighting, separated from central lighting, can also help to separate the central focus on a kitchen island for example, and change the overall mood to go from functional to inviting.”

Hidden and discreet lighting
We have noticed a considerable move away from downlighting to LED and hidden lighting and believe this will continue to be a prevalent trend throughout next year. Track lighting is also becoming an increasingly popular choice, enabling homeowners to adapt and discreetly move their lighting scheme from one area to the next with ease.”

Softer lighting
When it comes to bathroom lighting in particular, there has been a shift towards softer, more considered lighting solutions. With the trend for spa bathrooms set to remain prevalent for many years, we will continue to see more low-level lighting on either side of WCs and also behind freestanding baths. This kind of well-placed and considered lighting allows homeowners to achieve the perfect balance between practicality and the desired spa sanctuary feel.”
