4 lighting trends set to be big in 2021

If you've got big plans to give your home an overhaul in 2021, don't miss out on the opportunity to illuminate your stylish new look with some incredible lighting.

From modern looks with an industrial twist to vintage aesthetics suitable for period properties and more, there are plenty of lighting styles available to suit any style or budget, regardless of the size or nature of your space.


Lamps and lights made using reclaimed materials are set to be big in 2021, with the trend for upcycling gaining in popularity once more as we all start to think more carefully about waste and sustainability.

Materials such as wood and metals can be repurposed in a series of clever ways to give an upcycled eco-style look. To maximise your eco appeal, don’t forget to choose an LED lightbulb to save energy and boost your green credentials to complete the look.

Geometric shapes

We simply can't get enough of geometric patterns and shapes rights now, and this is one trend that we'll be taking with us well into 2021.

If you want to give the geometric style a try without splashing out on pricy light fittings, opt for a patterned lampshade at first as this is a cheaper option than a shaped light fitting but still allow you to add a touch of this trend to your home if you’re undecided about going all in on this style.

Collection of antique lamps

We love vintage!

Vintage is back, with many savvy homeowners trawling antiques fayres and charity shops on the lookout for quirky retro pieces to create a unique look in their homes.

Many older style lamps can be converted to accept modern bulbs. The super stylish with their finger firmly on the trend barometer are also choosing to forego the lampshade entirely to show off their latest find.

For the perfect finishing touch, why not check out our range of vintage lightbulbs complete with an exposed filament for a stylish bulb to superbly match your retro treasure?

Horizontal arrangements for industrial chic

For those with a love of minimalist modern styles, industrial chic is hard to resist. As a result, horizontal lighting is now popular in homes as well as office blocks and commercial premises.

From bright LED battens that offer incredible energy-saving capabilities at a pocket-friendly cost to coloured fluorescent tubes that offer pops of colour in playrooms and home offices, there are plenty of ways to replicate this lighting look without blowing your home décor budget.
