Collection: Bedroom Lights and Shades

Choosing the right lights for your bedroom can be challenging. Choosing the right type of bulbs will affect the mood and ambiance of your room, and you should choose your light bulb based on its lumen rating. Bedroom lighting bulbs can vary between 2,000 and 4,000 lumens, depending on the desired ambiance. In addition, you can find smart bulbs that allow you to select the right tone depending on your preferences.

If you're planning to read in bed, you'll want a light shade. Avoid dark shades because they won't produce enough light. If you're a serious reader, you might want to purchase a task light with a swing arm. These lights can be adjusted horizontally and vertically, ensuring that they're directed directly at your eyes. If you're not a serious reader, you may want to opt for sculptural lighting, such as blown-glass fixtures.

Whether you're a traditionalist or a modern-day hipster, accent lighting is crucial to achieving the ambiance and mood you're after in a bedroom. You can choose between general and task lighting, as well as picture lights to highlight favorite artwork or family photos. You can also choose between recessed lighting and tape lights, as well as creative repurposing of fixtures. A good idea is to experiment with different shades and colours in the bedroom.

Bedroom lighting needs to match the size of the room. If the room is small, you can hang a pendant over the bedside table. The pendants provide sufficient illumination for reading and mood-setting. You must remember that many people make the mistake of installing overhead cans only. It flattens the room and makes you appear older than you are. To avoid this mistake, you should hang a few hanging sconces in your bedroom.
