While appropriate lighting fixture selection and design is important in all areas of your home, the bedroom is a special location where proper lighting design can make a world of difference.

Your fixture selection should suite your tastes but also accomplish a few important goals. If you choose the wrong fixture, it is, of course, the fixture you will be stuck awake looking at during the night ruminating over your decision.

A well lit bedroom should be a serene retreat and the lighting design should include functionality, warmth, and visual interest. For the bedrooms main lighting fixture, you want something that creates an interesting and harmonious visual focal point that speaks to the traditional design of the room.

Let’s take a look at a couple of great options for a traditional setting.

A great way to soften the light from the fixture is to choose a fixture with shades. This Cohasset Chandelier by Hudson Valley does the trick.

Arteriors 'Rittenhouse' Chandelier - $840

Interior Design and Decorating

Dimming Lights 

Finally, I feel it’s important to speak about dimming. While it’s great to have light when you need it, like when folding clothes, having the flexibility to dim the lighting as your evening quiets down is essential. Consider looking at Legrand’s Adorne Collection.

Their intuitive dimming solutions and design flexibility is a no-brainer decision. Their Whisper Switches and SofTap switches make for silent operation and some of their switches are even controllable from your phone. No more getting out of a comfortable, warm, bed when the lights are still on.

On top of it all, you can coordinate their design to reflect the rest of the room. They even make Hubbardton Forge Wall plates to match your fixture. No more ugly plain white paddle switches.

Final Thoughts 

All in all, choose something that fits your taste within traditional style. Traditional styling should feel familiar, comfortable and predictably placed.

You also want something that creates an interesting and well balanced focal point that speaks to the rest of design of the room…Oh, and make sure it’s on a dimmer.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
