Lighting Trends: What’s In?

Are you embarking on a home remodel in Chicago? If you answered yes, lighting is a facet of your remodel that you don’t want to ignore. Lighting is especially important if your space doesn’t have a lot of natural light to begin with. At MK Construction & Builders Inc., our team understands the importance of lighting and how much it can transform your space. Here are some lighting trends that you don’t want to miss!

Asymmetrical Arrangements

When it comes to lighting, think outside of the box. You don’t have to make your lighting arrangements perfectly symmetrical. We’ve been loving more unconventional lighting features, such as hanging pendant lights in an asymmetrical way or clustering lighting to help elongate a room.


Cord lights continue to be used in home remodeling in Chicago. Cords are a great way to show that you are willing to take a risk and you aren’t so concerned with a more eclectic look. It may sound simple, but a touch as simple as cord lights can have a big impact on your space!

Boho Chic

Bohemian accents continue to make their mark on the design and renovation world. Woven rope and bohemian light accents make the perfect addition to a white-based space. If you have a canopy bed, you can also consider hanging string lights above your bed for an extra unexpected touch.

Giant Globes

Be bold! Giant globes that resemble disco balls can help add a whimsical touch to your space. Try adding multiple globes throughout for an even bolder look.
