As with any room in your house, in the bedroom, you want to use layers of lighting to provide not only a sufficient amount of light, but more flexibility within lighting zones. Lighting zones can be found in the different applications of lights; whether it is with overhead recessed or wall sconces.
The general lighting in a bedroom should provide enough light to see, but not be overbearing, as to maintain a level of relaxation. General lighting can be achieved through recessed lights, flush mounts, semi-flush mounts, chandeliers, or fan lights. Closets should be well-lit to distinguish between similar colors, and recessed, flush mounts, or semi-flush mounts, could provide the type of illumination needed in that space.
