A simple switch
When considering lighting options, remember to keep in mind the scale of the room and the height of the ceiling. Evenly spaced, recessed lights can offer a feeling of being in a luxury resort. They also provide complete control over the amount of light required and the spotlit points of the room.

A side order
A great way to clear up bedside table space and get those precious moments of night time reading in is by removing your bedside lamp altogether. The trick is to add a pendant light directly overhead, that will give just the right amount of light you need while you race through the latest best seller!

Turn up the romance
When it comes to getting in the mood, nothing offers the best and most flattering lighting than subtle wall sconces. They offer a glow that looks like candlelight, which should be a must-have for any bedroom!
Discern Tip: Try mirrored sconces to add a sleek and simple decorative element to the room. If you change the bulb to a colored one, the resulting light will be softer on the eyes.
A ceiling of diamonds
"Chandeliers are the jewellery of your home; whether small or large, they add drama to any room," says Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home. If there is one place in your home where you should be allowed to go decadent, it's your bedroom. Indulge yourself and pick a chandelier that doesn't overwhelm the available space, but which will add a touch of immediate elegance. Try to get one that works on a dimmer, so you can modulate the lighting as you see fit.
