Bedroom-Lighting-Tips

Turn your bedroom into a retreat with ambient lighting, nightstand table lamps, reading lights, night lights or wall lights. When lighting a bedroom, you want to create an overall atmosphere of quiet relaxation, while providing some bright spots for reading and other activities. A combination of general and task lighting that takes into account the age and lifestyle of the occupant(s) is needed. Remember, dimming controls give you the flexibility to vary the light to suit different moods and activities.

Wall-mounted fixtures can furnish general, task, and accent lighting. Today’s choices of wall-mounted fixtures is vast. You can select a decorative theme that can be carried throughout the home or a look designed to blend into your bedroom decor.

Semi flush or ceiling fixtures provide general lighting. They are practical in areas such as foyers, hallways, bedrooms, kitchens, baths, laundry rooms, playrooms, and dens. They are available with incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, xenon, and energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
