What are the different types of lighting?
Narrow down your choices for bedroom lighting. Whether you want pendant lighting for your bedside tables or cluster lighting as your central feature, explore the various options we have available.
How to choose bedroom lighting?
Bedroom lighting should tie in with the overall decor and style of the room. For example, if you have bronze hardware on the bedside tables and door handles, why not try creating a cohesive look with a bronze bedroom light? A more traditional style room may benefit from the addition of some vintage bedroom lights, to be in keeping with the room’s overall traditional style.
Your bedroom is your space to relax and unwind, so the style of lighting you choose should ultimately be something you like, while creating the right atmosphere for you to unwind.
The size of the bedroom light fixtures is also important. Too big and they can be overwhelming within the space. Too small and they can appear lost within the room and not provide enough light.
With our handmade lighting collections you are given the flexibility to pick the preferred shade shape and size that will best fit your bedroom interior.
In order to get the most out of your lights for the bedroom, you must consider how and where you position them. Placing pendant lights on either side of the bed, above your bedside tables, provides you with more table space and a handy reading light for the evening.
A question you must ask yourself when choosing your bedroom light fixtures is ‘what will this light be used for?’. If it will be a central feature light, consider installing a cluster or chandelier to illuminate the centre of the room and create a stunning feature light.
Alternatively, the addition of table lamps beside the bed will add another layer of light to the room. Ensure these lamps can be switched off easily from the bed.
Bedroom lighting rules
Creating some simple rules throughout all bedrooms in a home or hotel means that the layout is coherent and each room will work in conjunction with the other.
When forming a bedroom lighting scheme, include three circuits to the bedroom lighting. This will be one switch upon entering the room, to switch on the hanging bedroom lights or decorative wall lights, then two switches on either side of the bed – one to control the bedroom reading lights and the other to switch the bedroom pendant lights off.
Include bulbs with a warmer colour temperature, ranging from 2200k – 2700k, to help create that sought after cosy bedroom atmosphere.
