Read all of our top tips on how to create the perfect relaxing mood in your bedroom with lighting.
Best Lighting for the Bedroom
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary of calm and relaxation, a place where you can sit back and relax after a long day and sink into a tranquil slumber. When decorating the bedroom, the lighting you choose plays a vital role in setting the mood of the space and helps ensure you get a good night’s sleep. You don’t want to be spending your evenings in a room full of harsh light so it’s important to get it right to reduce any strain on your eyes.
If you’re keen to find out what lighting is best recommended for the bedroom, we’ve pulled together our top picks that will make your decision process a little easier.
Make it Cosy
The lighting in our homes will affect us in various ways, including physically. Melatonin, the hormone that helps us fall asleep, is a crucial part of our body clock and is commonly affected by the light settings that we’re in.
White and blue lights have a particularly strong effect on our melatonin levels, therefore it’s important to opt for warmer, red-toned lights as they generally have a similar colour temperature to candlelight which helps ease our bodies into a natural sleeping cycle. For this type of light, the Tower Table Lamp is a beautiful addition for any bedside, its graphic frame in matt black with copper detailing brings style to the space and works wonderfully with a warmer bulb.
Choose Lighting Based on the Room’s Size
The size of your room and the lighting you choose will have an impact on the overall look of the space. If you’re updating a smaller room for example, wall lights will be preferable as it will allow for more space for other items in the bedroom. Across our range you can get beautiful traditional and contemporary designs that will perfectly complement the interior scheme. In dark corners or if your bedroom has little natural light, you can even use a mirror to bounce the light further into the room.
If your bedroom is on the slightly larger side, your options will be more broad as the space will allow for larger lamps such as a floor-standing design that will sit beautifully into corners, illuminating the room with a warming glow.
Make a Statement with a Pendant Light
If you’re keen to go bold and create real wow-factor in your bedroom, why not make the most of your space and incorporate a pendant light? Not only will it create a feature point in your bedroom, it will also fill out the space to make the room feel cosy and comforting.
There are beautiful rattan options available or designs such as our Umage White Pendant with Rosette Suspension, this unique lampshade made from all natural white goose feathers gives a soft, warm light whilst adding a sophisticated and elegant touch to any interior space.
Here at Amos Lighting we believe with any bedroom renovation project that getting the lighting right is essential to making it a comfortable place to rest.
