While choosing bedroom lighting, create an atmosphere of relaxation and calm, while there are certain well-lit spots for reading or near vanities. Combining general and specific lighting is the best way to do this. Consider the age and lifestyle of those that will be using the bedroom is also important, and also remember dimmer controls are an option. Any light fixtures that are wall-mounted can provide the lighting you need. These days, wall-mounted lighting has a huge array to choose from. You can also decide to either create a look that accentuates your current bedroom design, or to make a new theme for your lighting options.
Ceiling fixtures are used for general lighting. The majority of rooms can benefit from having a ceiling light. Anywhere that needs good lighting for an entire room would need an overhead light. There are also a large number of types of bulbs, including fluorescent, xenon, energy-efficient, and incandescent. Foyers, bedrooms, kitchens, and playrooms are just a few of the rooms that need an overhead light source.
Recessed lighting can be useful. Hanging pendants next to bed is also an idea. Recessed lights can usually be directed to where they need to be facing to provide proper light for whatever activity is taking place. The best way to light the bed with recessed lighting would be to have 2 lights that are individually controlled. General lighting needs can be filled by any number of ceiling lights, including fan lights, recessed lighting, or even wall-mounted sconces. Any of these general lighting needs can be met with many light types. Just make sure you do have enough light for what you need to do, whether it be to cook, dress, or see into closets and drawers.
Children’s room lighting
Children’s rooms usually require track lights, which can be moved and changed based on the needs and what’s happening in the room. They can be directed and swiveled towards play areas or homework. When the child becomes older, the lights can be adjusted towards newer activities.
Recessed or close-to-the-ceiling fixtures
In a closet, any recessed or short fixture can be ideal, as it would give you the lighting you need without being in the way. Closets also put fluorescent bulbs to good use.
Bedroom reading lights
For reading purposes, a bedside LED reading light should be perfect. Any portable light would do, though you should opt for one that can swivel to change the angle as needed. Hanging pendants or installing recessed lighting near the bed can also provide you with the lighting you need.
Bedroom dressing table lighting
For dressing and for vanities, proper lighting with a magnifying mirror is the ideal setup. This would allow for precision when putting on makeup or grooming.
