The Top Five Bedroom Lighting Ideas For Winter

Baby, it’s cold outside! As the weather cools down it’s time to make our space hibernation-ready, and one of the easiest ways to make your bedrooms feel warm and cosy is by making some adjustments to our indoor lighting.

 

1. Get your glow on with a dreamy bedroom light scheme

Our bedrooms are a place to rest our weary heads after a long day, a sanctuary from the outside world and a place to recharge. As a baseline plan, the following elements are the foundation of a bedroom lighting plan. Bedside table lamps are the stalwarts of the bedroom lighting world and although they have traditionally been styled as a matching pair, why not get creative and mix up the styles on either side? Next, make the most of dark spaces by installing a floor lamp to cast a soft pool of light and create a decorative moody ambience that’s conducive to getting good quality R ‘n’ R. If your aim is a cohesive overall look, match the look or colour to your table lamps.

2. Natural lighting is the Best Lighting

Winter is the time to maximise any precious winter sun coming into your bedroom. Use a sheer window dressing during the day to allow for light to filter in and close heavier curtains or blinds at nightfall. Try hanging a mirror opposite windows to multiply the available light.

3. Increase Illumination with Floor Lamps & Reading Lamps

It’s a case of the more, the merrier when it comes to your winter illumination plans. An overhead light in the bedroom can be a show-stopping moment, but keeping the light sources varied is the key to creating a warm and welcoming bedroom sanctuary. A combo that includes floor lamps and reading lamps is the key to achieving a gentle lighting scheme that is both beautiful and functional.

4. Set the mood to snooze with dimmers

The right light at the right brightness is a game-changer, while the wrong lighting can feel disorientating and even make the whole space feel a little bit uncomfortable. This is especially true in our bedrooms - no one needs an overhead light giving business meeting vibes at bedtime. Use a dimmer to set the mood to dream-worthy to create a snooze-space that feels intimate, peaceful, soft and cosy. There is no replacement for sleep and lighting plays a key role in making sure we drift off.

5. Create Warmth with the Right Light Globe

It is worth noting the power of a ‘warm white’ light globe when creating a dream-worthy lighting scheme for your bedroom. To understand the science behind choosing a globe, we need to understand the concept of ‘colour temperature’. Colour temperature is measured in degrees of ‘Kelvin’ on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000. The warmer a globe’s light is, the lower its temperature will be, while a cooler globe temperature will have a higher Kelvin value. As a general rule, warm globes make a good pick for ambience and a cool globe is better for task lighting.
