Tips for Pot Lights in the Bedroom

Pot lights or recessed lighting are an affordable and easy way to add additional light to a room without having to do a major renovation. In just a few hours you can increase the functionality and value of your home with modern lighting fixtures that are simple and elegant.

Choosing the style and location of pot lights comes down to understanding the design of your home. The right pot light layout can ensure you experience maximum lighting when you need it, with the ability to dim when you want a more intimate feeling.

Check out these tips on how you can create the right pot light spacing throughout your home so you always have the right amount of light.

Think About Balance

Pot lights are designed to be subtle and never overpower a room. Deciding how many pot lights in a room is right for your home comes down to room size and the amount of light you require such as recessed lighting in the bedroom.

Think about how you use your bedroom. Is it just for sleeping or do you also enjoy reading before bed? If so, you may want additional lighting around your bed. Perhaps you have a walk-in closet or make-up area where extra lighting is required. Having the right balance of recessed lights in the bedroom can ensure that you can enjoy light when you need it, and a more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere when you don’t.

Where to Avoid Recessed Lights

You have heard the term location, location, location. Well, this is true when it comes to recessed lights. Bedrooms with recessed led lights can be warm and comfortable places to unwind at the end of the day. However, it is important to avoid putting lights in spaces that would hinder sleep such as over the bed.

Avoid putting lights over mirrors, instead install around mirrors to improve functionality and offer the most flattering light.

Put lights in spaces where they will provide the most efficient light such as a reading nook, or over a bedroom workstation.

Avoid putting them in areas of your home that are already lit by existing ceiling lights or floor lamps. Use pot lights as a way to improve lighting and eliminate dark pockets of space.

Types of Light Bulbs

Pot lights in the bedroom can be the perfect way to increase light and create a warm and comfortable space to escape. Choosing the right lighting and configuration can add to this sense of comfort.

Incandescent bulbs can provide a more classic feel in your bedroom. Offering subtle light in a yellow cast, these lights can make a space feel cosy even on the coldest days.

Halogen bulbs are more popular with homeowners who are looking for long-lasting energy-efficient lights. These bulbs create a clean, crisp feeling with a white cast that brightens up living spaces.

Bedrooms with LED lights get the best of both worlds with energy-efficient lighting that is not too bright or too soft.

Remember you can configure your pot lights to be dimmable so you can enjoy full light when you need it and more subtle light for times when you just want to relax.
