Bedroom Lighting Ideas

adminUncategorized0 Comments


Artificial illumination is one way to make your house comfortable and safe.  It also highlights specific designs inside your home. For the personalization and privacy of your bedroom it is important to find the right balance and creativity.

Substitute Table Lamps with Wall Sconces

Table lamps are typical for the bedroom and look great but why not update and create more style and make it easier to read in bed with wall sconces.  They’re space-saving, softly illuminating and look gorgeous. They don’t get in the way and there’s no chance of knocking them over.

Dimmable Pendant Lights

Pendant lights are usually found in living rooms and dining rooms but if you choose a dimmable pendant light for the bedroom it can clear up space on your nightstand as well as free up space on the walls which can be decorated with pictures and mirrors instead.

Dimmable lights are a bonus because they negate the need to use additional dimmer illumination. They’re also convenient especially if controllable through a remote control.

Create Depth With Less Light

If bright light isn’t to your liking or you just have no use for it, opt for task lighting in the form of two or three table lamps. This is great for people who use their bedrooms for reading or their beds for finishing up pending paperwork. If, however, you spend a lot of time in the bedroom and use it for activities other than work, this lighting idea won’t suffice.

Cove Lighting

Cove lighting is usually used in commercial buildings and hospitals but if you are looking for a unique look this may be for you.  Like recessed lighting, the fixture is kept out of sight but the amount of illumination is more.

Cove lighting lights the room uniformly and is not as harsh as other forms of lighting. You can have it installed on the ceiling or even stream down the wall for a very dramatic effect.

If in doubt, remember to settle for overall illumination or ambient light first. Follow it up with task lighting which is the second layer and one which gives background light some texture. Accent light, the third layer, is more form than function but shouldn’t be missed because it highlights key design elements. It can also be used to break up a wall devoid of wall hangings.
