Beautiful bedroom lighting ideas can transform a space, but who would have thought that lighting up your bedroom would be such a minefield?
When redecorating or remodelling, you need to plan bedroom lighting in advance, so everything can be wired by the electrician a long time before you start ordering those Farrow & Ball samples.
TOP EXPERT BEDROOM LIGHTING TIPS
It certainly pays to think about what you need when it comes to bedroom lighting while browsing different bedroom ideas.
For example, if you read a lot at night or don't have a lot of space, you may want to look at bedroom wall lighting ideas. Style-wise, light fittings can vary wildly and you can choose anything from vintage to industrial depending on the look you're going for.
Peter Bowles, founder and MD of Original BTC, shares his top bedroom lighting tips below.
1. Layer your lighting
Bedrooms are practical as well as relaxation spaces, so plan your lighting accordingly. Use a mixture of task, mood and accent lighting to create a layered scheme that will work at any time of day and across the seasons - cosy in winter, light and airy in summer.
2. Find the right fit
When you plan your bedroom lighting, consider different types of light fitting, not just the light they provide. Bedroom ceiling lighting ideas are great space-savers in small rooms, but in low-ceilinged rooms, wall-mounted lights are ideal and will help create a clean, boutique hotel look.
3. Hit the spot
Remember to illuminate areas such as dressing tables, wardrobes and reading nooks where more focused task lighting is required.
4. Get creative
Think creatively: floor lights with adjustable arms or even a pair of low-hanging bedroom wall lights such as pendants can make dramatic bedside lights.
