We have moved into the new year, and it isn’t long before we have to bid farewell to the winter too. Winter is a lively season, but it can be harsh at times too. The days are short, and the nights are longer, and that kind of dictates the way we decorate our homes, especially when it comes to lighting. And the moment we welcome the spring season after this, we’ll have to rejig our entire lighting layout.
The lighting layout in winter usually has to add more warmth and comfort into the space, and sometimes people clutter their spaces just to achieve that. And another thing that we all do is make the lighting layout way too vibrant because of the festive season that falls in between. Springtime is all about enjoying that calm and that peace and that should reflect in the lighting too. Now take a look at everything you can do to kick out the lazy winter decor and give way for a zesty decor that preps your home for the following season.
Minimalist designs for your home
Winters are all about going with your decor. The more extravagant, the more relevant. And that happens due to the reason we mentioned earlier, the festivities that fall in between. You go all out with your decor due to Christmas and the New Year, but you won’t always need such vibrant decor.
The solution here is to go with minimalist lighting designs that are easy on the eyes and offer an unmatched functionality quotient. Minimalist designs are the best choice after the winter because of their clean lines, limited colours and absolutely no clutter. The no-clutter part is the most essential one, as it gives your beautiful abodes a break from the heavy decor and it gives everybody some breathing space too. There are minimalist designs in every category and they can beautifully exude their zesty charm into every inch of your living space.
Pick the right colours
When we say pick the right colours, we are trying to bring your attention to two important aspects. One is the colour of the lighting design itself and the other is the colour temperature they emit. Both of these elements can dictate the energy and the aura of your living space. When it comes to picking the external colours of your lighting designs, the best option is to choose a neutral colour palette. Not only are they easy to the eyes but they can be effortlessly matched with any kind of background. You can, later on, customise your decor just the way you like.
And when it comes to choosing the right colour temperature of your lighting designs, go for whiter hues than yellow, as the former can create an energetic atmosphere in your living space.
