What should bedroom lighting consist of, then?
Top of the light is Ambient Lighting. This is important for doing stuff before retiring for the night. However, ambient lighting should be provided by frosted or soft-light bulbs. The soft light from these bulbs will give the bedroom a soft glow, preparing homeowners for a good night’s sleep.
Aside from ambient lighting, a bedroom can also benefit from carefully placed track lighting. Light fixtures like decorative spotlights can be used to highlight wall art light paintings and framed photographs. Further, track lighting can also focus light on preferred areas and darken others.
Recessed lighting will also do a bedroom some good. With recessed lighting, homeowners can make their bedrooms more spacious as they get rid of the need to get table lamps or floor lamps. Plus, because this type of lighting is set inside the ceiling, the light produced does not create glare which hurts the eyes.
Lastly, bedroom lights should have dimmer switches. These switches are not the regular kinds. With a dimmer switch, the owner of the room can control the amount of light produced by the light fixture. This means that the homeowner’s preference for the kind of light is taken into consideration. Dimmer switches are perfect for children’s rooms and for creating a romantic atmosphere.
The bottom line
Bedroom lighting should be carefully picked for the benefit of the person staying in it. With the right kind of lighting fixture providing the right amount of illumination, the bedroom will surely serve its purpose of being the place of rest and relaxation.
