Optimizing Your Bedroom Lighting


Your bedroom is where you relax after a long day, perhaps read in bed before falling asleep, and get a good night’s rest. It’s a personal and private space, and while guests don’t see it, you want your bedroom to be comfortable and inviting. The main component of proper aesthetic and functionality is, of course, the lighting. Bedroom lighting can be simple or complex, but above all, it should be what the homeowner wants. A room that is too dark can affect your mood as much as a bright space can, and not having the right lighting controls can impact your enjoyment of the room. At Lighting One of Cincinnati, we can help you find new bedroom fixtures that will let you optimize your lighting.

Ambient, or general, lighting plays an important role in your bedroom, but it doesn’t have to be the only light source. Depending on the height of your ceiling, a flush or semi-flush mount fixture can suffice, and if the ceilings are higher, a small chandelier can be a great option. If you want a ceiling fan with a light fixture that can both illuminate and cool the room during the summer, we can help you find the ideal choice. The main fixture will provide light for the majority of the room, but it’s important not to forget about accent and task lighting

Accent And Task Lighting

Many homeowners like to display artwork or photographs in their bedroom, and track and rail fixtures can provide the accent lighting each piece needs. Rails placed along the edges of the room, along with adjustable track lights, allow you to position your lighting how you want and provides outstanding versatility.

For task lighting, lamps are an essential part of any bedroom. Bedside lamps are a must, and you can choose from table lamps, wall lights, and more. Lighting is also a key component of vanity and dressing areas, and you can’t forget about fixtures for your walk-in closet. You need to be able to see the clothes and shoes you’re picking out, and we can show you a number of outstanding lighting options!

Once you’ve decided to update your bedroom lighting, it’s important to think about how often you’re in your bedroom, what times of the day you’re in there, and what you’re doing. If you love to read before bed, consider adding new table lamps. If you’re only in there in the morning while getting ready for work or at the end of the day getting ready for bed, focus on your closet lighting. If the ceiling fixture looks outdated or doesn’t provide enough general light for the space, pick out a new ambient fixture and brighten up the room.
