Modern Bedroom Lighting - Q&A

 
1. What are the current interior and lighting trends in bedroom interiors and which role does lighting play?

Today’s bedrooms are trending toward a mix of soft, neutral pastels mixed with natural elements such as furry deer hide throws, large pieces of branches with bark intact and reclaimed wood shaped into chevrons for full-wall headboards. Even when traditional floral wallpaper designs are used, they have a new twist to soften them such as using a grey-toned background or using the pattern sparingly by framing it with trim to create large-scale picture frames. However, the way that bedroom lighting fits in is by being extremely practical while blending in with the other colors and themes being used in the room but giving a subtle bit of drama. 

For example, you may have noticed that bedside lights in interior design magazines over the past year are often slightly different than the traditional use of bedside lamps because pendant lights are used instead. Adding to this, the pendant lights are mounted to the ceiling several feet above the bedside table with rigid piping or free-hanging, rope-style options. This creates a kind of framing for the bed area to create a boxed-in and subtle, yet dramatic, effect while still being efficient lighting. 

2. How much wattage do I need when reading in bed?

When you are attempting to avoid eyestrain but want to read in bed as much as possible, the usual advice is 40 to 60 watts for a traditional Light bulb. It is also recommended that the lamp is between your head and the page. Finally, to cut glare, a non-transparent shade on the lamp can be helpful. Alternatively, for using computers or devices in bed, the ideal is 60 watts. Of course, if you are having problems with the lighting when you are reading in bed, switching between halogen, LED or incandescent light bulbs may provide solutions.

3. How many lumens do I need in my bedroom?

Determining the number of lumens you will need for a bedroom depends on how it is being used. For bedrooms that include a computer desk area, separate lighting in the form of a chandelier, desk lamp or wall mounted moveable arm lamp can be used. Otherwise, the total lumens required for a room exclusively used for sleeping is usually 20 to 30 lumens per square foot. Interestingly, some studies have shown that brighter lights can interfere with the circadian rhythms that help you get a sound night’s sleep. To create the sleepiest environment, stick to the lower end of the lumen level.

4. What types of bedroom lighting fixtures are there?

When interior designers are hired for a renovation project, it pays to know the industry lingo. For bedrooms, lights are grouped around key areas or an idea. For example, a mood light for the floor is specifically designed to create a psychological effect. Regardless, most bedroom lighting is categorized around the practical area of the room it illuminates. 

Bedside lighting - In addition to lamps, there are several swing-arm models that mount to the wall. Ceiling-mounted, low-hanging pendant lights are also a popular trend for bedside lighting.

Lights for dressers and sideboards - These lights are practical for creating a degree of luxury in the bedroom, but they can also be used by the early riser that gets up before their bedroom partner. Along with mounted sconces, track or recessed lighting is common for dressers and sideboards.

Lighting for window board - When you have a large windowsill, decorating it with the right lighting can produce exquisite results. In addition to tabletop lamps, recessed lighting can produce soft lighting in lieu of sunlight.

Moonlight for the floor - Although most lighting is practical or decorative, some lighting is more like a piece of free-standing artwork. In other words, to create a splash in a bedroom that needs one extra bit of flair, a carefully selected moonlight is ideal.

5. Why should I use LED lighting in my bedroom?

One of the main reasons that LED lighting is promoted is due to the environmentally friendly advantages. The other advantage is LED light bulbs do not produce a lot of residual heat. Despite this, not all LED light bulbs are one-size-fits-all. Instead, choosing the correct wattage and working with the interior designer on a number of lumens you are comfortable with are extremely important to create the effects you desire.

6. What are some recommended products for modern bedroom lighting?

When you are considering a renovation or an update, there are a few ideas that are trending for bedroom lighting. Despite this, there are several standards that all of the trends evolve out of. Below, a few of the trending products are listed with their particular advantages and practical applications for usage in the bedroom.

Mini wall sconces - New designs in this area of bedroom lighting include using the swinging-arm desk lamp mounted on the wall for use as a mini wall sconce. For example, the Tolomeo design from Artemide is common as a free-standing desk lamp, but also comes wired to be used as a wall sconce. 

Shaded table lamp - This classic has been through so many eras of interior design because it is incredibly practical. Nevertheless, there are a few twists on this style of lamp that are found in the Tolomeo shaded table lamp design from Artemide. In particular, the choices of parchment or soft gray shades are the latest colors, but the articulated swing-arm is detailed in a way that makes it stand out from mass-produced models.

Pendant Lighting - Traditional pendant lights were often composed of similar cords, rope wires, and shades, but today’s pendant lighting looks more like a free-hanging lampshade. For example, the Formosa C1 pendant light from Anton Angeli has soft, flowing shapes to the shade and the colors allow for an artistic look in a bedroom.
