Tips from Your Home Builder in Naples, Florida: Pick the Best Bedroom Lighting
There’s more to master bedroom lighting in Naples luxury homes than simply the look of the light fixture. Keep the following tips in mind when making your selection.
Choose the Right Lighting Temperature
Perhaps you’d like an amber glow for a soft, warm feel to your space. Maybe you’d like a soft white bulb that is bright without feeling sterile. Consider what tasks are done in the room besides sleeping and make sure you choose a bright enough light for them.
Have Multiple Sources of Light
Don’t rely just on an overhead light; there likely will be days when you want something dim and more localized instead of bright, general light. If two people share the room, make sure you have a bedside lamp for each. If a desk is in the room, add a lamp there, too.
Consider the Scale
If you’re looking at bedside lamps, keep them at about ⅓ of the width of the nightstand. For overhead lighting, keep it about eight feet above the floor. For the diameter of an overhead light, keep your fixture at a size that is no wider than half of the bed.
Layer Your Lighting
Have different strengths and types of lights for different reasons — task lighting, decorative lighting, and general or ambient lighting. No matter what kind of lighting you choose for your bedroom project, make sure it fits your needs as well as your tastes. You deserve lighting you love!
