How to Choose Bedroom Lighting

Tips for Illuminating Your Bedroom In Style

Chandelier Lighting for the Bedroom

When it comes to choosing lighting for your bedroom, it can be hard to know where to start. After all, your bedroom is the scene of so many activities, from waking, dressing, and getting ready for your busy day to winding down and resting at the end of it. How do you select versatile and functional lighting for such an important space? Fortunately, it’s possible to address all of your bedroom lighting needs by installing a few different types of lighting.

Close to Ceiling Lighting for the Bedroom?

Start by choosing your overhead lighting. This is your most general-purpose lighting, ideal for the morning as you prepare for work, for the evening as you start to wind down, or for bedroom tasks that require plenty of illumination such as tidying and making the bed. For a dramatic statement you might install a chandelier over the bed. There are seemingly endless bedroom chandelier options to suit a range of interior styles, from modern to traditional and beyond! For a more subtle effect, a flush mount or semi-flush mount light on the ceiling is a great pick as well.

Cha-Ching! Going Green and Saving Green

The Old Switch-A-Roo: Switching to Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Exchange to Save

 

At Del Mar Fans & Lighting, we are a company dedicated to providing our customers with high quality products and superior customer service. As an online ceiling fan and lighting distributor, we realize the impact our products can have on the environment. In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we want to inform our customers and community as to how going green can save you some green.

Energy Boost

The world around us seems to be suffering from an energy crisis, and as a result, we wanted to find a way to give our community a much needed boost of energy efficiency.

Bright Idea

This Fall, we are inviting locals to exchange their old, energy guzzling light bulbs with newer, more energy efficient light bulbs at our first Bulb Drive Exchange supported by ENERGY STAR. Why? Because not all light bulbs are created equal. Not only will making this small switch save you money by reducing your monthly electricity bill, but it will also help reduce overall energy waste and light pollution which are detrimental to our planet. Switching to energy efficient light bulbs such as LEDs and CFLs:

 

  • Saves you about $6 a month in electricity costs
  • Uses about 75% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last much longer
  • Produces about 75% less heat, reducing energy costs associated with home cooling and making them, overall, safer options

Compare and Save: Incandescent vs. LED

Compare Cost, Lifespan, and Wattage to Find the Right Bulb for Your Home

According to ENERGY STAR, lighting accounts for 12 percent of home energy costs. If you’re using inefficient light bulbs, this can really add up. Switching from incandescent bulbs to LED bulbs can decrease your energy use and reduce your energy costs. See how incandescent bulbs stack up against LED bulbs in the infographic below.
