There are a variety of lighting options to consider while designing your bedroom. The amount of accessible natural light and the placement of light switches are both important factors to think about when designing a room's lighting scheme. Scented candles are another option for setting the mood in a space.
Install Switches for the Lights Beside the Entryway and the Bed
Having the right illumination in your bedroom requires careful placement of light switches, both by the entrance and by the bed. The appropriate light switches can aid in nighttime navigation and wardrobe selection.
Care must be taken to maintain the integrity of the wiring while relocating light switches. Wrapping the white wire with black electrician's tape at both ends of the switch may be necessary.
It is been recommended that you provide yourself at least 8 inches between the door frame and the light switch. As a result, the switch plate won't be in the way of the door's structure.
Three-way switches for the room's primary lighting and accent lighting can be installed conveniently next to the bed. Accent lighting in the bedroom can also be provided by pendant lights hung from the ceiling.
Coordinate Your Bedroom Decor by Pairing a Light with a Decorative Accent
The bedside light is a common piece of bedroom decor. The lamp not only illuminates the room, but also serves as a showpiece. Having a matching bedside table with the light enhances this effect. Thankfully, you don't have to get out of bed to turn the light on or off. Getting the correct sized light is the challenge. You want one, but it shouldn't be so enormous that it takes up the whole room. Think about the bedroom's overall color palette as well. White or an off-white color is a good choice for a contemporary style. On the other hand, a lighter wood or oak finish can be just what you need to get that rural or rustic appearance. The lamp has the potential to serve as the room's focal point, depending on personal preference and available funds.
A wide variety of fixtures are available for use as nightlights. The floor lamp and the bedside table lamp are two of the most common types of lighting fixtures used in homes today. The latter are flexible enough to be used on either side of the mattress. They are wonderful for people who need a nap in the middle of the night.
