A good lighting plan for the bedroom is extremely essential when decorating.

Bedroom Lighting Design Tip: Layering Technique

Sometimes people often neglect the interior lighting design, even for a bedroom, your private sanctuary, proper lighting truly makes a big difference.

To start, when you are planning the lighting design for your bedroom, it is good to practice the layering technique. Layering lighting means to have different sources of light such as having lampshades at your bedside tables and another light source across the room. Layering your bedroom lights gives you the opportunity to create various moods you are trying to achieve. This allows a more balanced illumination within the room. You may also consider having a dimmer switch installed to allow you to choose and adjust the light that is dispersed into the room.

One item that is not good to have in your bedroom is a ceiling fan chandelier (the one with a light connected to it). If you need to have a ceiling fan in the room, it is okay. But having a light drooping from under a ceiling fan looks tacky. If you wish to achieve a modern yet sexy look for your bedroom avoid using the ceiling fan with a hanging light.

The use of various types of light bulbs for illuminating the room can give a totally different look. Using sunken bulbs coupled with floor and table lamps can provide the effect of washing the room with a delicate light.

A skillful lighting design can bring out the look of pure elegance which is just as important as choosing the right bedroom furniture to accomplish a perfectly decorated bedroom.
