Trends come and go. Although there is nothing wrong with jumping on a trend, it won’t be in style forever and may quickly need to be updated. On the other hand, timeless design styles are just that – not stuck in time – and are excellent options as a foundation for any room’s décor. While other elements may change, timeless styles won’t clash with other design choices.
The key to any good room design is lighting. No matter if you like to switch up your décor every few months or prefer a classic interior design that stands the test of time, timeless light fixtures help tie the room together. Finding timeless lighting may take a little more time and planning but will pay off with lighting that will transition through many design styles.
For example, ceiling lights can be a pain to replace, so consider choosing timeless ceiling light fixtures that are classic and neutral. You can easily refresh the room’s décor with movable lighting. Also, consider lights with swappable parts, such as glass or fabric shades, that can be easily updated.
