Bedroom is a private room where homeowners unwind after a long day of work. Convenience is of course an essential factor for a bedroom. Aside from the furniture that supports the need for a comfortable resting, light is equally important. Atmosphere that is built by light can improve the quality of your rest in the bedroom.
Generally, bedroom lighting can be divided into three, namely general lighting, reading lighting, and a light sleeper. General lighting can be obtained from downlights that are placed on the ceiling or through indirect lighting from behind the drop ceiling. This light’s glow provide romantic atmosphere within the bedroom. Pick a yellow light to bring warmth into the room.
Since the main function of a bedroom is to take a rest, you do not need to provide lighting that is too strong. Do not leave out any activity that is also usually done in the bedroom such as the habit of reading before going to bed for some people. To make the reading activity remain comfortable, you can put a reading lamp on the bedside.
Light for sleeping tends to be dim. You can make it one with a reading light or general lighting. Just add a dimmer switch. You can also adjust the brightness of the light. It can also cope with a new couple of different habits, e.g. when the husband prefer a dark room while the wife doesn’t, the use of dimmer can help them set the brightness of the light more flexibly.
Also pay attention to the placement of switch in the bedroom. You can use the SPDT (single pole double throw) switch or change over switch. The use of this switch lets you turn off or turn on the lights from two places, e.g. near the door and near the headboard.
It certainly eases you if you want to turn the lights on when entering the room and to turn off the lights when going to sleep. No need to go far enough to reach the switch at the bedside. The switch is usually installed in the hotel room. The system uses three core cable.
A proper bedroom lighting layout will help you get a better sleep quality. When you wake up in the following morning, you will feel fresh and ready to do your routine.
