Bedroom Lighting Ideas

At Sherwood Lighting we believe you’re never too old for a night light! Bedroom lighting may not seem like a big deal but we think differently - your bedroom isn't just a place for sleeping. Your bedroom should be a place where you wake up and get ready for the day ahead, where you relax and unwind after a long day, where you can read your favourite book... You get the idea. We think that a bedroom should be ambient, comforting and tranquil, and one way to achieve this atmosphere is through your choice of bedroom lighting.

There are a number of options you can choose from when buying bedroom lighting, and many things you need to consider. For example, how big is the bedroom? You may think that a larger bedroom will need more lights than a smaller one, but this isn’t always the case. Smaller rooms will benefit from more lighting because light creates the illusion of space. A few clever lighting features can transform a pokey room into a light, bright space.

Low lighting and ambient lighting can make a bedroom feeling welcoming, cosy and romantic. Harsh white lighting tends not to work as well in a bedroom as it can feel quite clinical and unnatural. Leave this style of lighting to your kitchen or utility room, and opt for more yellow, soft lighting in the bedroom.

Lighting can be a decorative feature in your bedroom. A grand, luxurious chandelier or some modern, eye-catching wall lights can add so much to a space. Think about what kind of style you are trying to achieve and what theme you are going for with your room and work your lighting choices around that style. For example if you have a vintage, shabby-chic style room, using modern wall lighting may look out of place. Instead opt for some vintage style table lamps, Click here to view our suggested lighting for bedrooms.
