The bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation. One of the most essential ingredients to the bedroom’s tranquil atmosphere is its lighting. Using layers of ambient, task and accent lighting with careful placement and dimming controls will have a great impact on the bedroom’s look and feel.
Begin with ambient lighting. Ambient light includes natural lighting via large windows or skylights, or artificial lighting—whatever provides a decent amount of lighting that enables general tasks like cleaning, folding clothes or making the bed. In terms of artificial lighting, ambient light is best achieved with ceiling fixtures or through portable. Both lighting types will offer a sufficient amount of lighting for activities that don’t require bright, focused light.
If you expect to do activities that require a bit more focus, like reading, working, grooming or applying makeup, then consider layering on top of your general lighting with task lights. Focused task lighting need not be confined to the traditional desk task light. Table lamps with light-colored shades are better for reading than those with dark shades, as a dark shade would dilute the light’s brightness. Swing-arm lights are good for focused reading, whereas more artistically designed table lights or even pendants create a more ambient and soothing atmosphere.
Accent lighting is typically meant to draw attention and highlight features. For the bedroom, accent lighting on its own can act as a subdued version of ambient lighting, giving off a pleasant glow and creating a cozy atmosphere.
