This is a simple lighting option especially for those who prefer basic lighting over the dramatic alternative.  A central ceiling light will cast an even glow all over the room so that you might not need extra lighting. This is also a top notch option for those on a budget. You could add a chandelier to make things interesting. As they say, chandeliers are the jewelry of a room.

Tip: A light-colored ceiling shade should go with a low-watt bulb so that it doesn’t become too harsh.

Ceiling spotlights are great if you have artwork hanging on the walls. They shouldn’t be placed too far nor too near. For example for a standard eight-foot ceiling hang the ceiling spotlights two feet in from the wall.

Suspended lights hanging from the ceiling could also work. For instance, you could try having some gold-accented pendant lights suspended above both nightstands. It gives an elegant and dramatic effect to the room. You could even have low-watt pendant light fixtures hanging from the ceiling.

They are a soothing source of light, yet they also serve decorative purposes. Height-adjustable pendants are ideal for multitasking; you can use them to read a book or adjust when using it to get dressed. Most people, especially those with small rooms, prefer suspended pendants to lighting options such as lamps as they do not take up much table space.

Most suspended lights do not light up the whole room and so you must complement them with other light sources.
You could also several ceiling fixtures depending on the size of the room and space in it. You could put them in groups or try a grid or pattern.

Lamps, Lamps and more Lamps!

Lamps can help you light up your room as they come in different varieties and designs. You can have a bedside lamp for your reading. A bedside lamp should have a light tone for easier reading so you might want to keep off bright and harsh lighting. Look for one with a relaxing glow but with just the right brightness.

Directional table lamps such as an angle poise are great if you have a desk area. Swing arm lamps are also perfect for reading especially if you are a serious reader. They offer you maximum flexibility as they are adjustable both vertically and horizontally.

You could try out clamp lamps. For one, they save a lot of space. Secondly, they look good clamped anywhere, whether on the headboard, bedside table or even the overhead shelf.

Tip: if you are buying more than one lamp buy similar models so that the room doesn’t look chaotic.

Wall sconces

A wall scone positioned next to a mirror works great for putting on makeup and blow-drying your hair. Using  a pair of sconces on both sides of your bed can make the room look more artistic.
