Top 5 lighting trends for 2020

Are you looking for new and exciting ways to illuminate your home in 2020? Then look no further as the team at BLT Direct has been examining some of the top trends to hit the world of decorative lighting this year.

From big and bold shades to mood-enhancing wall lights, let's take a look at 5 of the best that we expect to see taking pride of place in on-trend residences over the next 10 months…

1. Big & Bold

Statement lamps are set to be big once more in 2020, with oversized shades in a plethora of finishes available set to add a pop of contrasting colour to any room. Bigger is most definitely better when it comes to lamps this year, so don’t be afraid to go a little larger. Bigger doesn’t always mean more expense either and there are plenty of great budget options to be found which still bring that sense of drama.


2. Wall lights

The bedside lamp has taken a backseat to wall lights in bedrooms this year in order to offer extra surface space on drawers and tables.

From modern, contemporary styles to traditionally inspired vintage lights that offer a touch of class, our selection of wall lights is an easy way to recreate this trend in your own bedroom and save vital space on those surfaces.

3 Nature-inspired chandeliers

Chandeliers have always been a popular statement lighting choice for those that want to create an aura of elegance indoors. This year we are seeing natural materials such as wood and recycled glass creep into some of the newest designs to hit the market.

Candle lightbulbs are still as popular as ever and compliment this lighting type beautifully, so if you are thinking of purchasing a statement chandelier, be sure to check out our range of candle light bulbs here.


4. Clear pendants

Glass pendants are making a comeback too with a multitude of designs featuring glass covers to leave the lightbulb within exposed.

Many people worry that an LED lightbulb might spoil the appearance of their attractive new clear pendant light fitting. Fear not! Our range of vintage-inspired exposed filament LED bulbs can actually enhance the light fitting and give it that antique appeal.

5. Glorious gold

The rose gold trend has given way to the return of more traditional golds. Expect to see the soft hues of yellow gold used in the most stylish spaces. This is an especially attractive option for floor and table lamps but don’t write off wall lights featuring a splash of metallic glitz either. The good thing about this trend is that it can be used with pretty much any style of décor so it’s incredibly flexible.

To really embrace the bling, why not select a gold-tinted lightbulb to give off a gorgeously soft glow and compliment your new gold light feature?
