Controlling lighting is an important aspect of any bedroom interior design. You want a light source that can wake you up bright and early in the morning while at the same time be ambient enough to encourage a relaxing sleep at night. There are many ways to accomplish the dual-purpose of bedroom lighting. Unfortunately, not many homeowners are familiar them.
Let our remodeling experts at Marcela Montoya Remodeling show you a few clever ways to light up a bedroom properly.
Layers of Light
When it comes to home remodeling, lighting any room is best done with layers. There are three main types of layers: ambient, accent and task. Ambient lighting is your main light source. During the evening, this could be ceiling bulbs, lamps or any light bright enough to illuminate an entire room. During the day, the best ambient lighting is the sun. Accent lighting helps highlight specific parts of a room. Lastly, task lighting focuses on smaller tasks like reading, sewing or any other activity you expect to do in your bedroom.
The first thing you want to think about is what style of lighting you want for your room. Traditional styles make do with plenty of ambient lighting with very little use of accent and task lights. Meanwhile, modern styles give more emphasis on accents. Most homeowners prefer a mix of a little bit of both, marrying traditional and modern styles to fit their needs.
Our bedroom, bathroom and kitchen remodel professionals recommend a good balance between all three layers of light to achieve better control of a room’s mood. You may also want to make use of dimmer switches to adjust the lighting levels according to your preference.
