Your bedroom is your personal sanctuary, and is meant to make you feel calm and relaxed. Your bedroom also needs to be functional, depending on your various needs and requirements, as well as the time of the day. Lighting plays a major role in setting the tone and creating the mood in any room, and the bedroom is no exception.
OUR TOP 4 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LIGHTING FOR YOUR BEDROOM SUITE
1 Size Matters
Whether it is your bedroom or any other room in your house, the size of the room with drastically influence how much light you need. Some rooms may be bigger but receive a lot of natural light, therefore they do not need as much artificially lighting, whereas a large room that is fairly dark will need more artificial lighting to open up the space.
It is important that you make use of various types of lighting fixtures to ensure that every corner of your bedroom is light up. We suggest that you opt for one grand pendant light to provide the necessary lighting from overhead, and then pair that with a large standing lamp in one of the corners of the room either by an occasional chair by a window or by your full-length mirror. Lastly, we suggest finishing off the lighting of your bedroom with a table lamp on each bedside table to provide you with the necessary light next to the bed.
2 A Brilliant Style Statement
The lighting that you select to place and style in your bedroom needs to reflect and complement the design and aesthetic of the room. If your bedroom features classic, glamourous furniture and takes inspiration from chic design trends then a cascading chandelier would be the perfect overhead centrepiece. Whereas if your bedroom features a more simple, modern or minimalistic look and feel then modern recessed dimmer lights are a great option as they are extremely functional and allow the other lighting fixtures to shine and take centre stage.
We recommend that you mix and match your lights to ensure that they do not all overpower each other. If you have a grand chandelier then it is best to opt for a more minimalist floor or table lamp. The same applies for if you have simple overhead lighting, then your floor lamp and table lamp should be bold, eye-catching pieces that add drama to the room.
3. Multiple Layers of Lighting
A big mistake that most people make is not incorporating various different types of lights to create a layered lighting look. Each interior space that is properly designed and styled features various types of lights that have been strategically placed to create a warm, inviting ambiance. Layering lighting in your bedroom is vital as it helps you create that warm, cosy feeling that everyone wants. While overhead lighting is important, accent lighting is equally as important as it creates an ambient aura in your bedroom and makes you feel calm and serene.
