Bedroom Lighting Design Guide

Bedroom lighting can be quite tricky. Why? As there are certain areas in the bedroom where light and shine are needed such as the areas where a study desk and vanity set are located. The area where the bed is placed needs to have a dimmer light as well. See, the different intensity is needed to a certain room such as the bedroom is needed. Designer must consider these before installing a bedroom lighting system.
Aside from concentrating on the intensity, designer's seems to forget that the position and the arrangement of switches should not be overlooked. Isn't it convenient turning on and off the lights while on bed?.

 

The same holds true while one enter the room and with just one switch certain lights turns on. Furniture positions play a big role for lighting system as the position of switches is dependent to it.
A bedside lamp is an example of essential bedroom lighting. Assuming that the designer choose the perfect bedside height; its light will directly shine to the reading material and not to the eyes. They give enough light for background lighting as well as for reading. Some designer's opt not to put bedside tables or cabinets for space considerations, in the absence of those furniture wall mounted lamps on swings arms are great alternatives. This also prevents the room from having barren design. Installing wall lights can be quite tricky, make sure that sure they are fitted at the right height.
Lighting near the vanity sets needs a balance luminance to both sides. Strategically placing the lights will prevent the glare from bouncing in the mirror making the face look too light creating an eerie illusion in the mirror. One of the best solutions is to have a lamp placed either side of the mirror.
