4 Easy Steps: Lighting Up The Bedroom | UK Lifestyle Blog

Here is a brilliant 4 step guide to ensuring your bedroom is lit to perfection.

Size

The most important thing to consider when lighting up your bedroom is the size and space you have. You need to pick fixtures that emit enough light to illuminate every corner of the room in the desired fashion. People try to lift the lighting higher in a room to make more of a space, but this isn’t going to work miracles.

Think about the space you have and work with that. Remember, lighting a room is fun and challenging. There are endless choices of design, installations, hues and ways to use them. Choosing lighting for your bedroom is all about understanding the basics, so start by being honest with yourself about size and you can only go up from there.

The Statement

The lighting in your bedroom needs to enhance the design theme of your room. This includes the colour scheme. You have put a lot of time into choosing these colours so be meticulous when it comes to lighting. If you have a room that is glamorous then a gorgeous cascading chandelier is the perfect centrepiece. You could also consider including antique lighting which could bring in a cool hotel room vibe especially if you have found some old sconces that have a more traditional appearance.

Bedrooms are your personal haven so you need to ensure it is dramatic and soothing, romantic and functional. Obviously your demand on this room will change depending on the time of day. Create a statement which can shout something different at your guests, depending on the time of day.

Layer it Up!

This may sound strange, but just like you can layer your bed with many fabrics you can also incorporate several layers of lighting. Ambient light defines the general aura of the room, task lighting offers focused illumination for specific nooks.Β Accent lighting allows you to highlight the feature that you feel is the focal point of the room. Don’t just go for one style, combine all three and you will have a truly incredible bedroom which will feel like a modern show home.

The Bedside Element

The bedside lamp is an incredibly important piece of furniture. Not only must it be perfectly functional it must also be effortlessly beautiful. No longer are you restricted to simple table lamps. You can now choose between pendant lights or sconces. Suspended additions are fantastic as they give you even more space and a feeling of simplistic design.

The traditional bedside lamp is now cooler than ever. Firstly you no longer need wires. We have clap technology, voice technology and we even have timed lighting which can slowly dim itself off as you drop off. You can also buy some quirky and fun lamps such as these by designer Abigail Ahern.

Bedroom lighting should be fun, complex, indulgent and beautiful. Make sure you put as much thought into it as you do your colour schemes, then sleep tight!
