Floor lamp, hanging lamp, or rather indirect light? The lighting in the bedroom is at least as important as that in the living room. After all, this is not only where we sleep but also where we spend time resting, reading, or getting dressed.
The Right Lighting for the Bedroom
Lighting in the bedroom should be atmospheric, useful, and functional. If you like to read, then there should be a reading lamp on your nightstand. Is your bedroom also a dressing room? Then the lighting must be aligned so that you can still determine the colors of your clothes in the evening. But that’s not all: light color also directly affects our well-being; in this respect, the temperature should ideally be adjusted for each room. But also, the value of lumens per square meter for proper illumination should be correct.
So several factors play a role in the lighting design in the house. We show you different ideas, including tips and tricks around light!
Lighting Ideas With Led Strips
So-called LED strips can be attached to walls, furniture, or decorative elements with an adhesive strip. You can even use them to stick on steps in the house to prevent tripping accidents. LEDs as a means of lighting are functional and look very aesthetically pleasing when properly installed.
Lighting Ideas With Spots
Spots are swiveling recessed lights with LED or halogen technology. The advantage when you install ceiling spots: They are dimmable, so you can adjust the lighting conditions in the bedroom to your liking, depending on the time of day and the mood.
Floor and Table Lamps for the Bedroom
Do you like variety? The floor and table lamps are ideal as lighting for your bedroom! They can be quickly rearranged and are usually also adjustable in height. Functional floor lamps cut a fine figure almost everywhere, whether on the nightstand or in the corner next to the dresser.
Indirect Lighting in the Bedroom
Lena Schaumann, lighting expert and founder of Lumizil, offers tips on lighting in the bedroom: “The more indirect the light, the cozier and more comfortable a room becomes. Here, the light does not fall directly on individual objects but is first reflected by walls and floors. The light source is hidden behind a screen or similar and thus cannot be seen directly. Thus, the light is strongly diffused, and harsh shadows are avoided. There are several variants for indirect lighting, for example, baseboards and stucco moldings with integrated LEDs, LED strips, wall lights with a screen, niches with hidden light sources, or TVs with LED backlighting. LED strips are trendy, as they are self-adhesive and only a few millimeters wide. They can be quickly attached to objects, whether under the bed or behind the cabinet.”
