Lighting in the bedroom (17 photos): good examples of the location of lamps and spotlights

A bedroom is a room not for prying eyes. Guests do not come here, there is a cozy and peaceful atmosphere. And just as the bedroom interior should be resting, the lighting in the bedroom should perform certain functions: calm and relax in the evening, and in the morning - to invigorate and awaken.

Modern wall lights in the bedroom

The bedroom lighting options can be very diverse. If for a small attic bedroom with a low ceiling there is enough one ceiling or wall lamp at the head of the bed, then large, spacious bedrooms require a completely different approach to their lighting.

No matter how bright or dark the interior of the bedroom is, let your bedroom be even absolutely white, preferably it should have large windows. But, to meet a new day in a good mood, revival should be gradual. The location of the window behind the bed or in the side wall relative to the bed will prevent bright daylight from spoiling the pleasant exit from the night rest.

Windows in the attic bedroom

If the bedroom area does not allow you to place the bed away from the window, it is advisable to hang it overnight with dark heavy curtains, and if the bedroom is small, you can install it on the window of the blinds.

The same applies to the windows in the bedroom, located in the attic. It is better to put the bed so that the windows in the inclined planes of the ceiling are not directly above the bed. Unless you are a fan of rapid awakening and the morning light directed to the person does not affect you negatively.

Artificial lighting

If you have decided on the interior, do not forget to think about the lighting in the bedroom. The proper evening lighting of your sleeping room in the form of soft diffused light will make its interior more interesting, and depending on where the light sources are and which lights will be selected, the bedroom will look different every time.

Here are examples of different types of lighting and how the bedroom design depends on the location of artificial light sources.

Ceiling lighting

Placement of the main and, as a rule, the only light source on the ceiling - the standard lighting design of the bedroom of a small city apartment. In most cases, this is a chandelier in the center of a small bedroom, hanging directly above the bed.

In your own home, no matter how small a bedroom, you can think about the design of its lighting so that a bedroom from a small and close will visually turn into a room with a good area and height.

Different ceiling lighting in the bedroom

Installation of a small chandelier is not excluded, but it can be placed not in the center, or above the bed, but, for example, above the chest of drawers or the dressing table.

Lighting the ceiling in the bedroom can complement the spotlights placed on one of the levels of the two-level ceiling, with the chandelier remaining one of the light sources.


Illumination of the bedroom without chandelier is also possible. Moreover, the chandelier fits well with the interior of an exceptionally large bedroom, but not small at all. The volume of a small bedroom is guaranteed to fill with the light of the required intensity the fixtures located on the walls. And, of course, it is better to make a small bedroom white - this will also visually increase it.

Wall Lighting

Sconces of different shapes, different colors, designed in a variety of styles - these are the fixtures used most often for wall lighting.

The interior of the bedroom very rarely suggests wall lighting. Sometimes the lamps hanged above the bed completely replace the chandelier and other sources of ceiling lighting.

Wall lamps in the bedroom

There are also interesting options for wall lighting bedrooms, when special niches or false shelves are installed spotlights or nightlights.

Wall lighting using night lights and sconces will harmoniously fit into the design of the loft bedroom with a low ceiling. A spotlight installed in the ceiling of the bedroom, located in the attic, will fill the lack of light from the wall, if any. In addition, if you are a fan of space and freedom, then, by painting the attic bedroom ceiling with white paint, you will also add a room to the light and visually increase the height of the bedroom if the ceiling in the attic is made low.

Bedside lighting

Bedside lighting is provided by:

  • table lamps installed on bedside tables, chests, shelves;
  • floor lamps, which are placed directly beside the bed, on one or both sides;
  • nightlights or spotlights in a small niche above the bedside tables.

Combined lighting

Lighting the bedroom in most cases is just a combination, as for a comfortable stay in the bedroom, and also, in order not to get up to turn off the top light at the moment when sleep overcomes, a competent specialist will necessarily design a bedroom lighting design taking into account all possible situations.

Chandelier or spotlights on the ceiling, a lamp at the dressing table, table lamps by the bed, or night lamps above the bed - that's the full set of what we most often see in the bedrooms.

But there are creative people with non-standard thinking, using unexpected lighting for the lighting of the bedroom. Light sources can be LED tubes and even festive garlands. The design of the white bedroom, beyond recognition, changes the LED lighting installed in the false ceiling frames or behind the false partition.

LED lighting is interesting in the bedroom of a young couple, a young girl or a teenage girl, when it seems that this is no longer an ordinary bed in a bedroom with a standard low ceiling, but a boudoir in a high palace hall.

Sometimes such a small detail is enough to make the interior of a white, inconspicuous bedroom become unusual, almost fabulous. In the bedrooms, whose walls are covered with wallpaper with colored ornaments, this decision will look obtrusive. If you want to take advantage of this idea, leave the bedroom white.

Different lamps in the bedroom

Palace chic can be achieved by installing on the ceiling of the bedroom a crystal chandelier and hand-picked in the same, classic style, desktop bedside lamps. The only condition is that the entire interior of the bedroom should also correspond to the classical style, and the bedroom itself should be not small, but impressive in size, and not located in the attic with a low ceiling. Otherwise it will seem that everything around is pressing on you. What kind of full rest then will it be?
