The bedroom is a space in which to relax and rest. Light plays an important role in this. With a well thought-out LED lighting plan, you ensure the right light in the right places and envelop your realm of dreams in a snug atmosphere. And you certainly will not have nightmares about your next electricity bill; the latest LED technology is a highly versatile lighting solution that is also very economical.
Build your plan on these three pillars:
A new day in the bedroom and we often start the morning in the dark and return in the evening after sunset. Bright basic lighting helps you get going in the morning and provides sufficient light in the evening to help you prepare for a big night out. For new-builds, LED lighting in the bedroom ceiling is ideal: distribute individual spots over the entire low ceiling to illuminate the room evenly. Pendant lights are more suitable for higher ceilings.
Our advice: You can achieve a nice effect with a diffuser, which scatters the light from a ceiling lamp in a star-shape over the entire ceiling.
Thanks to LED in the bedroom, lighting a sloping roof has become child's play. You can install individual spots in the sloping roof, or hang a narrow light rail where the sloping roof meets the flat ceiling. In long, rather narrow attic rooms, several pendant luminaires next to each other go together very well: they visually separate the bed from the rest of the bedroom.
Additional lighting in the bedroom wardrobe is a practical idea: Often, the light from the ceiling lights falls on you from behind, so that your shadow obscures the contents of your wardrobe. Lighting via a motion detector is an ideal solution: the light switches on and off automatically when the wardrobe door is opened and closed.
1. What colour temperature is perfect for bedrooms?
Warm white light at 2,700 Kelvin is ideal for comfortable bedroom lighting.
2. How many lumens should bedroom lighting have?
Ceiling spots should illuminate easily with bright light. Plan around 730 lumen, which is equivalent to the conventional 60 watt bulb. The bedside lamp should have 350-400 lumens, so you can easily read in bed.
No matter whether you want to spend some quiet alone time in the bedroom or plan a romantic few hours for two, atmospheric bedroom lighting provides the perfect ambience. Here are some of the best tips for creating a cosy atmosphere in the bedroom:
