How To Choose Lighting For A Room: Bedroom
Best Lighting for Bedrooms
Choosing lighting for a bedroom should be warmer, and certainly not as bright as lighting you would select for other zones in a home. When considering how to choose lighting for a bedroom, remember that this is a quiet and calm space for relaxing, and so bedroom lighting should be cozy and inviting. Warm-toned light bulbs and diffused lighting works best in bedrooms, to create a peaceful look and feel.
- Large areas of soft lighting can be created by using wider drum shades on either ceiling lights or table lamps. Coolie or retro lamp shades are also a great choice.
- Use a ceiling light with a diffuser to soften brightness. Our collection of ceiling lights has some great examples.
- Table lights on bedside units either side of the bed can provide soft spots of light for reading by. Match with a lamp shade that compliments the color scheme of your room for a harmonious theme.
- Opt for light bulbs that are under 3500K – any higher than this will be too white and bright for a bedroom.
