Bedroom Lighting Ideas

Lighting has the power of changing up a room’s atmosphere; especially bedroom lighting. Lamps, chandeliers, pendants, sconces, ceiling fans–they all have their purpose of illuminating your space. But you can’t ignore the fact that they’re elements of your space as well; therefore, they have to complement it perfectly. Every main character needs its sidekick; in this case, you’ve chosen the perfect bed, but now you need to decide which is its ideal companion.

Bedside Table Lamps

Most people place two matching bedside table lamps, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it. You can make the bedside table lamp the statement and let it steal the show or make it blend seamlessly with your color palette.


By hanging from the ceiling, they provide a more elevated look to your already beautiful bedroom, and with a significant bonus: they save up some space. By choosing this option, your bedside table will be able to hold all your jewelry, books, and midnight snacks. Pendant lights come in different shapes and sizes, they can fit your formal bedroom by choosing a glass pendant, or you can make your dream boho vibe a reality by choosing rattan as the material.

Wall Sconces

By being stuck to the wall, you achieve the hotel style that everyone loves as it looks simpler yet beautiful. In addition, this choice will provide the perfect lighting for all of those who love to read in bed, as the light will come from the ideal angle to illuminate the book’s pages.


A chandelier can be the perfect choice for you if you wish to emphasize the center of the room. You can achieve many different styles with a chandelier by choosing the suitable material. For example, a crystal chandelier can make it feel chic and glam. Still, choosing a wooden chandelier can bring a more masculine element to your room.

Ceiling Fans

They perfectly illuminate your bed, just as chandeliers do, but with the bonus of keeping you cool. In addition, there are ceiling fans with crystals, wooden ones, plastic ones, and even metal ones. So, there is undoubtedly one out there for you.

Floor Lamps

Floor lamps are the perfect companion for your seating area. They have to be part of it for it to be complete.

Combine Light Sources

Have fun with it, combine them and let the magic happen. The only rule is to not settle with the ceiling lighting in your bedroom. You deserve more.
