General Lighting Made Great – Alternative Ceiling Lights
With bedroom lighting, we want to achieve maximum levels of comfort. Variable levels of gentle lighting will turn your bedroom into a tranquil sanctuary. Helping you to relax and unwind, get ready for a good night’s sleep, and improve your overall wellbeing.
Ceiling lights like pendant lights and track lights are perfect for providing general lighting to illuminate the whole bedroom. Bold, industrial-inspired iron pendants are instantly warmed up with soft bedroom furnishings for a perfect balance of cosy warmth and contemporary style. Glass pendant lights are also becoming incredibly popular. Their delicate design adds a modern elegance to any style bedroom. We recommend teaming your ceiling lights with a dimmable bulb and dimmer switch to adjust the lighting as required and encourage a calming atmosphere.
Beyond Bedside Lights
Aside from the typical central light source, pendant lights can be used in the bedroom as bedside lights to frame the headboard. Reducing the need for bedside furniture to make the space feel bigger, whilst also creating a contemporary minimalist look.
Wall lights also work well as bedside lights and can be installed above a bedside table to make the room feel less cluttered. Are you a night-time reader? Position recessed ceiling spotlights over the bed to create a practical reading light.
No-Nonsense Wardrobe Lighting
LEDs are ideal for illuminating small spaces like wardrobes as they don’t produce any heat. LED strip lights are perfect for wardrobes as they feature an adhesive back to easily stick to any surface. They can also be cut to size or extended to fit any size wardrobe. Wardrobe rail lights with PIR motion sensors are particularly useful to illuminate the wardrobe as soon as the door is opened when you’re tired and bleary-eyed in the morning.
If you have a walk-in wardrobe, track lights and bar spotlights work perfectly as a central light source. Spotlight heads can be easily rotated to brighten every corner of the space. Natural white LEDs will provide an accurate description of the colour of your clothing and make the space appear bigger and brighter.
Get Ready with Mirror Lighting
LEDs are perfect for positioning beside bedroom mirrors to create a glare-free glow. Keeping the calming atmosphere whilst providing practical light for getting dressed. Wall lights like up/down lights are great beside mirrors, whilst also drawing the eye up and down the space to make the room feel bigger. Spotlights are also great positioned above bedroom mirrors for creating a stylish dressing area.
LEDs offer an excellent colour rendering index, CRI. The CRI rating is measured compared to natural daylight, with a maximum ideal value of 100. With a good CRI rating of 80 and above like LED, the light can reproduce colours realistically. This quality of light is important around the home to get the colours of your furnishings, décor, clothing and own appearance just right. So, you can leave the house with confidence knowing that you look the same inside and out.
