The bedroom is the most used rooms of your home, so make the lighting count. I’ve created a brand new lighting guide to advise on the best lighting options. I hope it helps.

Pendant lighting

Pendant lighting is extremely trendy at the moment. These lights give a fresh, light and airy modern feel and they will fully enrich your bedroom. When they hang from your ceiling, they allow you lots of space for the rest of your room. They come in wide variety of style and design, sizes and structures. If you want to give your bedroom the WOW factor, then this is the perfect choice.

Task Lighting

Any bedroom lighting that is specifically used for tasks like reading and studying is considered task lighting. Task lighting increases illumination above ambient levels, so you will see that they’re far more brighter than the average light. Layered lighting is split between 3 lighting layers: Ambient, accent and task. Task lighting consists of smaller fixtures that offers ample lighting needed for sustained concentration.

Floor lamps

Floor lamps are defined as self-sustaining and lighting fixtures. They are the most common light sources to have in a bedroom because they’re easy to install and they provide overall brightness to the room. One of the many advantages of this variety of lighting fixtures is flexibility. A floor lamp will also create a focal point for your bedroom. There’s plenty of different types, such as swing arm floor lamps, torchiere styles, multi-way floor lamps and even task floor lamps. 

Recessed lighting

If you’re looking for the ultimate contemporary masterpiece then recessed lighting is a great way to go. This lighting has been increasing in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Recessed lighting can be used in floors and ceilings to create vertical beams of light. Because it’s sleek and easy to conceal, recessed lighting is an ideal choice for areas with limited space. The spotlight type are tiltable, allowing light to be distributed wherever it suits you.
