A Bright Shining New Year ~ The Right Light for a Bedroom

Happy New Year! What better time to rearrange our home, making room for the new and throwing out the old! When changing out pillows or rearranging furniture, take a look around at the lighting. When the lighting is the correct choice in a room, you never even think about the effectiveness of the lighting. However, it is very apparent that it is not right if lighting is too dim, or is casting shadows.

When we think of our bedrooms, maybe we think of escape, quiet, soft surroundings with meaningful items that personalize our space. We spend time in our bedrooms sleeping, reading, or even just plain daydreaming! It should reflect our personalities and be the most comfortable room in our house. It should be the place we go to truly be still and relax.

The lighting in our bedrooms should be consistent with "rest". While we prefer dark to sleep, there should be an overhead light, a beautiful chandelier or stunning ceiling fan. A Lutron dimmer on the overhead light is an excellent idea for softer glow when bright light is not necessary.

Task lighting is essential for reading or needlework. A small chandelier over a nightstand, gorgeous wall sconces or lovely table lamps are options. Soft light at face level is more comfortable than direct light from overhead. Remote lighting controls are available for more convenience. 

Closets need good light for matching colors when dressing. Have you ever left the closet with mismatched shoes? Remember to keep bulbs 12 inches from the rod or upper shelf ensuring safety.
