Are you having trouble deciding which lamp to choose for your bedroom design, or simply which would be the best lighting design for you? Well, then today’s your lucky day because we’re about to give you four incredible tips on how to choose the perfect lighting for your bedroom!
1. CHOOSE THE TYPE OF LAMP THAT BETTER FITS YOUR NEEDS
Bedside lamps are a must in pretty much any bedroom. However, sometimes that’s not enough, so you should take your take to consider how many clearly enlightened spots you’re going to need to have in your bedroom.

You can go with a different approach and choose to use little wall sconces or even suspension lamps as your bedside light. The important thing is to choose the solution that best suits your needs whether their space or aesthetics related.
2. DECIDE HOW YOU’LL BE USING YOUR LAMPS
It’s important to decide why that specific lamp will be put here and not there. So make sure to plan ahead and decide how and why you’ll be using a particular type of light. Is it supposed to light the whole room? Is it to highlight a dark corner? Is it going to be used only as a reading or ambiance light?

3. CONSIDER HOW MUCH LIGHT YOU WANT IN YOUR BEDROOM
This comes hand in hand with the previous tip because sometimes bedrooms can also become spaces for watching TV, reading, exercising and even working. If you have a workspace in your bedroom, be sure to include a table or floor lamp nearby to help with reading and late-night study sessions.

And, of course, if you have a worthy walk-in closet, make sure to consider that space into your calculations of how much light you’re going to need in your bedroom…

4. DON’T FORGET YOUR BEDROOM’S STYLE AND YOUR PERSONALITY!
Lighting is a huge part of your bedroom’s style, so you don’t want to go messing around with everything you’d already put together just by choosing the wrong lamp… Really think about the look you’re trying to achieve, and carry that theme through in your lighting. If you went with a mid-century design, then choose a mid-century lamp. The same goes for all the other styles, such as industrial, contemporary, scandinavian…
