To accomplish everything you want to do such as optimizing your space, dressing, relaxing, reading, and more, your bedroom deserves to be lit well regardless the style of décor or size of the room. The fact is your bedroom is your sanctuary. Utilizing the various layers of lighting is critical since some bedrooms use one flush mount light that does the work of many – many bedrooms aren’t lit properly. This year, look for modern lighting options that run the gamut of styles.
Overhead Ambient Lighting
One thing you definitely need in the bedroom is ambient light of some sort, and typically this comes in the form of an overhead lighting option. The type will vary depending on bedroom décor and personal style but includes a chandelier, semi-flush mount, drum pendant, ceiling pendant, or a ceiling fan with a light kit. The trend is for fixtures that offer quality general illumination and give off a soft, soothing glow. Dimmers are also trending as they allow you to control the glow emitted.
While simple table lamps may do the trick, there are plenty of other options that are currently popular for bedside task lighting. To reduce the chances of tripping over cords and a smaller footprint, wall lamps are the perfect option. Those that include swing arms to direct lighting wherever you need it are best. Another popular choice is to hang matching mini pendants, making sure they’re at optimal sigh level.
Sconces and Lamps
Have a dressing table or vanity? Use these in-trend lighting options. Many people don’t provide enough lighting in these areas and they certainly need it. To put your best face forward, try placing sconces on both sides of a vanity mirror, or even an eye-catching, unique lamp as a decoration and to light the dressing table.
