Home decoration, we need to configure lamps for each space. Living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen, study, there are various styles and styles of lamps to choose from.

Except for some workaholics and overtime dogs, it is possible that most of our time is spent at home, and nearly one-third of our time is spent in the bedroom. So, let’s talk about some lighting principles for bedroom lamps and bedside lamps.


For bedroom lighting, what we need is the light to bring us a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Of course, we also hope that the bedside lamp can integrate functional lighting and decorative lighting.

Too bright light can make you irritable, make it difficult to fall asleep, and affect sleep quality. Therefore, the light of the bedside lamp should be soft and moderately bright, which not only meets the needs of reading and playing mobile phones, but also creates a good bedtime environment.

Therefore, the lighting effect of the bedside lamp should be bright and soft, which can create a warm style. We require the light of the bedside lamp to be soft, in order to meet our psychological needs before going to bed at night and help us to enter a better sleep state.

When choosing a table lamp or wall lamp, be sure to pay attention to the material of the lampshade. We recommend choosing lampshades made of frosted glass, parchment, PVC materials, fabrics, etc., which will make the bedroom space appear quiet and calm.

color temperature

Usually, in terms of color tone, bedside lamps are suitable for warm colors or neutral lights, such as light yellow, orange, milky white, etc. But don’t worry, the light is too dim. Warm light and dark light are two different things. Dim lighting can make people feel insecure and can damage eyesight.

Room size

When choosing a bedside lamp, we refer to the size of the room, the placement and overall style of the furniture, as well as personal habits. Usually, we recommend table lamps and wall lamps. First, it is flexible and easy to adjust and replace the light source. Second, the decorative effect is very good.

Among them, the size and number of table lamps can be selected according to the size, style, texture or personal preference of the bedside table. One can be placed alone or two can be placed symmetrically.

The choice of wall lamps depends on the size of the bed. If the bed is large, install one lamp on the walls on both sides of the head of the bed; if the bed is small, install only one double-headed wall lamp above the center of the head of the bed. If you have the habit of reading before going to bed, it is recommended to choose a style with a telescopic handle and an adjustable lamp head.

Lighting design is not about choosing lights, it is a job that is both technical and artistic. If you really don’t have the time and expertise to DIY lighting design, you might as well find a lighting designer!
