Do you know the number one complaint about choosing lights for a bedroom? Buyers say that if they had known then what they know now, they would have selected bedroom wall lights rather than overhead illumination. Citing the glare that frequently comes with multi-bulb overhead lights, these shoppers are ready for a change. It is possible to select the type of bedroom wall sconce that allows for dressing, reading, relaxing, and the occasional task lighting. However, you need to consider the room’s size and the bed’s placement.
How to Choose Bedroom Wall Lights
The most common placement of a larger bedroom sconce is one on each side of the bed. As a general rule of thumb, consider a matching set for the aesthetics. Bedroom sconce lights can be either functional – you see the ones with movable arms – or for ambient illumination. If you want the best of both worlds, choose multi-bulb sconces with a dimmer switch. In this way, bedside sconces can take over the tasks you would have typically assigned to an overhead light.
Which bedroom illumination would be suitable for a contemporary or mid-century modern interior décor? Pendant lights for bedside tables are hugely popular because they create fantastic looks. Moreover, you can control the length of the chain with which you suspend them from the ceiling. Other types of more muted bedroom lighting include flush-mount ceiling fixtures and track lighting.
