Lighting Guide: Bedroom

When organising the best lights for the bedroom, you need to make sure that you don’t choose any options that contain a strong or harsh light as it will often be the same from when you wake up till when you go to sleep in the evening. You want a more ambient light to provide a more relaxing tone whilst in the bedroom. The best part about picking bedroom lights is that you don’t need to conform to one type of light, the choice is yours! Whether you want a larger very flashy piece, a simple flush fitting or a wall light there are many options to choose from. You do need to bear in mind however that the choice needs to be something that can fit everyday use.

Table or wall lights can be used to supplement your ceiling lights, allowing an ambient light with reliance on the main ceiling fixture, which you can also save electricity with by using task lights. You can also put your main lights on a dimmer switch if you want the lighting levels to be adapted. Make sure to also take in mind the general colour of your room such as the bed sheets, the metals and the sockets so you can match your fixtures to compliment the rest of your setting, and what light would suit where such as a bedside lamp while reading.

The setting of a room and the way you go about lighting it also depends on the family member you are decorating for, if you are decorating for your child we recommend focusing on bright lighting and if they are in school a good table lamp for homework and other activities. When doing this however, you must also focus on the materials used on the light, we would not suggest a fixture with a glass shade as this can cause damage when broken, having a light that is a bit more sturdier to damage is what should be focused on.

Below we have included some lights we think would suit the bedroom, please like and share with your friends!
