 Your bedroom is your own personal sanctuary; it’s the most personal and private space we own, so it’s important that we get it right. The bedroom should be an expression of who you are as a person, as well as a place that you feel comfortable and safe from the stresses of the outside world.

 How the room is lit will play a large part in defining the ambiance of the space, so it’s an important design feature that perhaps doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. As well as setting the mood, light fixtures can be used as defining decorative elements in the décor too. With this in mind, today we’re looking at a few of the ways we can light our bedrooms. Let’s get started…

1. Spectacular strip lighting

2. Amazingly modern

3. Classic refinement

 Classic, elegant light fixtures like those pictured above are perfect for those aiming for a more traditional aesthetic.

4. Classic meets contemporary

 This breathtaking bedroom combines classic and contemporary design elements to create a cool modern room with an air of refinement. The lighting plays a large part in shaping the design with classic light fixtures and strip lighting that accentuates the crown-moulding.

5. Focused on a feature wall

 Spotlight are great for a subtle lighting look in a modern bedroom, but they can also be used to direct attention in the room; here we have spotlights placed in such a way so as to draw attention to a fabulous feature wall.

6. Nothing beats natural light

 Nothing beats natural light, so if possible why not include a skylight in your bedroom’s design?

7. Simple and effective

 Of course aesthetics are important in the bedroom, but aside from specific mood lighting light fixtures must be practical, and nothing’s more practical than the humble reading lamp by the bedside.

8. A light fixture as an aesthetic feature

  Conversely, light fixtures can also be purely decorative, like the superb backlit skyline pictured above.

9. Sparkling spotlights

 Spotlights are a great way to evenly light the space; used in conjunction here with decorative strip lighting and an enviable amount of natural light.

10. Candles!

 Of course we couldn’t complete our list without mentioning candles; a wealth of candles scattered around the place can create a super-cosy atmosphere making them the ultimate mood lighting.
