Bedrooms are not just for sleep but can also act as a living room, a sanctuary away from communal rooms of the home, or even a home office. The lighting works best when it reflects these different functions, providing you with different moods and experiences, depending on what you feel like at the time.
More often than not, the ceiling is the first place you’ll start when planning the lighting for a room. Take the stylish route with a feature pendant, or select an uncomplicated downlight that will illuminate the room but allow additional lighting fixtures and other décor pieces to show off your style. Dimming gives you the flexibility to control the brightness of the room.
A great way to add light in a small space is to utilise the functionality of wall lamps. They provide ambient illumination and can also inject a decorative element. Lumi Lighting has a range of stylish wall lamps, such as Platze below, and practical fittings that can double as a bedside lamp like Turku. Use the Bellucci wall uplight for a minimalist fitting with a big impact as it bounces light from the wall, up to the ceiling and around the room.
Bedside lighting trends have evolved over the years. Placing pendant lights on either side of the bedhead is a modern take on the traditional lamp and also frees up space on a bedside table or desk. There’s a plethora of options available regarding shape, size and colour so you can ensure they match the design, style and colour scheme of your room.
