9 tips to ensure proper lighting in the bedroom

The solutions selected to give functional brightness to the entire room should, above all, emphasise the atmosphere of peace and intimacy that reigns within it.

Furthermore, each lamp must be in perfect stylistic agreement with the furnishing scenario.

To get a final result with great technical and aesthetic value, we decided to draw up a list containing 9 tips to illuminate the bedroom impeccably:

  1. Consider the main entry points of natural light;
  2. Opt for more lighting solutions;
  3. Select the most suitable lamps for ambient lighting;
  4. Take care of the correct positioning of lamps and switches;
  5. Choose practical and functional lamps;
  6. Take care of the accent lighting;
  7. Choose lamps suitable for spaces;
  8. Yes to coloured lights, but don't overdo it;
  9. Opt for dimmable solutions.

Let's continue in stages.

1. Consider the main entry points of natural light

Remember that natural light also plays a vital role in illuminating the bedroom.

Before selecting the solutions best suited to the client's needs, carefully evaluate the brightness of the environment without artificial lighting.

Consider the presence of large windows, balconies and terraces, as well as potential access routes to sunlight.

Natural light, together with lamps with the right colour temperature, will create a fresh and light atmosphere.

2. Opt for more lighting solutions

Choosing multiple solutions to illuminate the bedroom is the turning point for a successful lighting design project.

By introducing lamps for ambient lighting, accent lighting and task lighting, you will ensure comfort and the ability to freely carry out activities in the room.

3. Select the most suitable lamps for ambient lighting

Not all lamp models are suitable for illuminating the overall bedroom. Whether large or small, the bedroom needs direct and uniform light.

In this regard, you could opt for recessed lamps arranged around the entire perimeter of the ceiling, or install suspension lamps.

4. Take care of the correct positioning of lamps and switches

Arrange switches and light sources according to the arrangement of the furnishing elements. To illuminate the comfort zone, for example, we suggest you install lamps at the sides of the bed with controls and switches, to make them easily accessible.

5. Choose practical and functional lamps

Read a book under the covers, move around safely at night, work on the computer, undress, change clothes, etc.: these are the activities most frequently performed in the bedroom that require optimal task lighting.

In this case, you could opt for wall lamps or floor lamps, which are effective for illuminating the bed area, and introduce table lamps to be placed on the desk or dresser.

6. Take care of the accent lighting

Decorations, plants, ornamental vases, design elements, frames, paintings and photographs are small but important personal style details that give personality to the bedroom, enriching the furnishings, and for this reason, should be enhanced with the right brightness.

For this reason, we recommend that you select recessed and appliqué solutions to highlight every piece of furniture or design in the room.

7. Choose suitably sized lamps for the spaces

The size of the lamps must always be chosen according to the space available in the bedroom.

If you are dealing with a room with a small ceiling, opt for a suspension lamp or a ceiling light, while in the case of bedrooms with large ceilings, choose several solutions or install a large chandelier.

8. Yes to coloured lights but don't overdo it

Coloured lights in the bedroom? Why not, the important thing is not to overdo it because, in fact, colours amplify our perception of the space, but not all the shades satisfy the look in the same way.

We suggest you opt for warm, soft lights, so the atmosphere in the room will be light and pleasant.

9. Opt for dimmable solutions

Adjust the intensity of the light to illuminate the bedroom, using dimmable lamps. In this way, you will be the one to set the right atmosphere for all hours of the day.
