When you think of updating your home, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it remodeling the kitchen? Updating the bathroom? Many of us shy away from making changes to our home décor because we simply aren’t ready to renovate, or even paint. That doesn’t mean that you can’t update your space–it’s amazing how making one small change in your home décor can have such a huge impact!

Replacing your hardware and adding new accessories is the easiest way to make a beautiful and cost effective design update in your home. See your home in a new light by replacing your old light fixtures. These days, lighting isn’t just lighting, anymore. It can be used as artwork, a statement piece, a focal point or for that fabulous piece that brings the whole room together. A new light fixture could be the WOW factor your space is missing!

Here are some of the latest styles and lighting designs that caught our eye at Design Connection, Inc. All of the pieces we are sharing today are available through our design studio here in Overland Park. If you would like to browse lighting options that are not available at national stores or if you need help picking out the perfect piece, we invite you to stop by! If you see something you love, let us know!

Brass and Gold

Brass and gold elements have shifted from an interior design trend into an interior design movement. Incorporating these features into your lighting choices will give your space an updated look for many years to come.

Pendant lights are moving beyond the kitchen island and into bathrooms and bedrooms. Using pendant lighting in place of an overhead vanity in the bathroom, or in place of table lamps at your bedside, will give your space an elegant, sophisticated look.

Once reserved for entryways and formal dining rooms, chandeliers are becoming the shining design in rooms that you’d least expect. From kitchens and bathrooms to guest bedrooms and walk-in closets, chandeliers can be used in any room that needs a touch of glamor.
