The best bedroom light fixtures will illuminate your room with a gentle, diffused glow, creating a comfortable environment at all times of day and night. Bright, harsh light exposure before bed can make it difficult to fall asleep, so it’s important to choose bedroom lamps, sconces, and bedroom ceiling lights that produce warm, soft light. Bedroom lighting, such as a bedside lamp, with a dimmer knob is a smart choice since it allows you to control the volume of light depending on the time of day and how much natural light the room receives.
Consider the functionality and practical features of your bedroom lighting, too. If you’re looking for bedside reading light, consider a convenient touch bedside lamp that can be controlled with a tap of a finger. Or choose a bedside table lamp or bedroom wall light designed with a pull chain within arm’s reach of your bed. Below, discover a range of bedroom lights that will help you select what’s right for your space.
Types of Bedroom Lighting
Depending on the size of your bedroom, aim to incorporate three to five light sources into the room. From table lamps and floor lamps to wall lamps and ceiling lights, there are many different types of light fixtures from which to choose – each suited to a different purpose in your bedroom.
For functional areas within your room, such as a reading nook, bedroom office, or sitting area, create task lighting with a bedroom floor lamp. In large bedrooms that require ample ambient light, hang a bedroom chandelier or pendant light in the center of the ceiling. Arrange matching bedside table lamps on each nightstand for additional reading light. If your nightstand is short on surface space, wall lights for bedrooms, such as wall sconces, can also be a source of reading light. Finally, illuminate a vanity or dresser top with a sculptural bedside lamp.
