Choose the right lighting for your bedroom

24/09/2011
Lighting for the bedroom requires careful thought as it is important that your bedroom provides you with a haven from the stresses of life.

Your choice of lighting will allow you to create the right mood for your bedroom.

In selecting the right fixtures, consider the décor. Brightly-coloured walls will require less light than darker colours.

Fixtures to choose from include wall lights, lamps, chandeliers, lights with fans, recessed lights and decorative track lighting. Your choice will be affected by whether you use your bedroom simply to relax and sleep or whether it is a multi—functional room where you also need to study or work. Task lighting will be required for a desk and a good choice would be a swing arm wall lamp that allows you to direct the light where you require it.

Swing arm lamps are also useful for bedside lighting, particularly if you do not want to disturb a partner whilst reading.

Ensure that dressing areas are well lit and consider dimmer switches if you want the option of altering the ambience of your bedroom.
