To choose the lighting for your room isn’t the easiest of the tasks: we know it and, in order to guide you, we let you with ten top bedroom lighting ideas, since vintage rooms until eclectic ones, where effectiveness takes place and the final aspect is well achieved.
1. Space saving sconces
Wall sconces, whether modern or antique-inspired, are a great way to frame a bed. The designers at Rethink Design Studio wanted to enhance the contemporary yet romantic feel of this master bedroom by focusing on the light sources.
2. Ecletic design
To create a clean, balanced look with a touch of eclectic design, symmetry is the option. Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home suggests bedside lamps, nightstands and the use of accessories in pairs.
3. Light Complements
When choosing lighting for your bedroom, remember that beyond serving an obvious function, it can also provide a stunning accent within the space. Designer Pierre Jean-Baptiste suggests choosing one primary source of lighting and then choosing smaller fixtures for soft additional lighting.
4. Mix it up
In a large bedroom with a lot of decorative eye candy, coordinating different types of lighting can enhance certain areas of the room without washing it out. To really illuminate this exotic master bedroom, designer Christopher Grubb installed various light fixtures with different tasks in mind.
5. Contemporary look
To create a modern look in your bedroom that also saves space, hang low-watt pendant light fixtures from the ceiling right above your nightstands. To add even more interest to the space, hang the fixtures at different heights.
6. Bright Whites
A separate seating area is the perfect place for an illuminating light fixture of its own. Despite the dark navy draperies and walls, this elegant lounging spot has plenty of light for reading. When natural light isn’t an option, the swing-arm floor lamp provides the perfect amount of light.
7. Serene Atmosphere
To provide a sense of ambiance and sensuality, various types of lighting were used throughout this guest bedroom and bathroom suite. Designer Amélie de Gaulle placed accent lights above the bed to enhance the Bhutanese fabric artwork and also to provide the best light source for reading.
8. At Home Getaway
Evenly spaced recessed can lights truly enhance the gold and metallic hues of this luxurious master bedroom. For additional lighting, four table lamps deliver focused task lighting around the bed and dressers.
9. Enhanced Ambiance
An advantage of installing recessed “eyeball” lights is the ease with which they can be focused on any part of the room you’re trying to draw attention. In this rich bedroom retreat, smaller recessed lights are used around the entire room, along with hidden accent lights.
10. Eucalyptus Hardwood
Eucalyptus is the most widely planted and one of the fastest-growing hardwoods, which makes it an environmentally and budget-friendly flooring choice without cutting back on style. In this modern bedroom designed by Troy Beasley, the dark eucalyptus flooring creates a stark contrast against the white and bright yellow furnishings, creating a calm, elegant ambiance.
