Design trends come and go – so how do you sort the best from the rest? We asked Mirvac Design's senior lighting designer, Martin Bevz for his take on the trends currently emerging in lighting design. He shares three of his favourites below.
1. Layered lighting
“Homes are multifunctional spaces these days. Your kitchen might need to be well lit when cooking a midweek meal for the kids, but dim and relaxed for a weekend dinner party. New homes have multi-functional lighting, aka layered lighting built in. This not only not affords flexibility but better sustainability, but if installing new lighting isn’t a priority right now, a couple of lamps can make a big difference. In fact I recommend experimenting affordably first – it’s one of my top five lighting tips."
