Home decor and lighting trends have evolved a lot in recent years. The whole idea of “less is more” has changed our perception of interior design and decorating. Even in smaller homes, you can now enjoy more square footage with ample sunshine and fresh air.
The trend of open plans, which basically means a wall- or partition-less living space, is quite trending in the modern world. You’d also come across minimal interiors with fewer walls and spacious living areas and rooms in larger abodes as well.
This evolution of home decor trends has subsequently impacted the way we furnish and light up our living space. Although some would still prefer vintage home decor, a majority of people now go with installing modern-looking furnishings and lighting.
Keeping in view the growing popularity, we have decided to discuss track lighting in this piece. It is a lighting trend that is stylish and innovative. Track lights come with fixtures available in various shapes and sizes so that you can find a perfect fit for your space.
Now, without further ado, let’s get started!
Would Track Lighting Be Appropriate for Your Home?
The trend of track lighting is actually based on a track with lighting fixtures lined on it. Over the course of years, track lighting has evolved a lot. These lighting fixtures have become more contemporary and stylish with time.
It is ideal to install track lights in a newly constructed project or in a space that is recently renovated. They are basically designed to complement modern interiors as well as exteriors. With track lighting, you can aim the light anywhere you want. It would help you highlight the piece of artwork or a decorative painting in your home.

Modern kitchens, living rooms and other high-traffic areas in your home are ideal places to install track lights. They might also look good in your hallways or corridors, depending on the layout of your home.
All About Installation and Placement of Track Lighting

No matter the design of your kitchen, you can shape your track lighting arrangement the way you want. A U-shaped track would be ideal. It would work for different types of kitchen setups. You can easily aim the light towards your cabinets, sink area and countertops. More light would mean increased functionality.
Where to install the light? Well, its track should have enough distance from the wall for proper lighting effect, at least 20- to 40-inches away. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions between track lighting heads and their aiming spot, so the illumination effect is not hindered.
