Bedroom Reading Lights – When all is said and done and the times challenges are at an end, its time to retreat to an area of your house that will offer peace, a time for reflection, a time to unwind and also a time to become away from the pressures which are a normal part of life.
This area may also be a place to enjoy the company of a loved one and to experience the joy of intimacy and closeness.
There are other areas but the bedroom has been the traditional place. Before considering the types of lighting used in the bedroom, keep in mind that the colour of the ceiling and the walls will affect the type and the intensity of the lighting that you will need to use. Brightly coloured walls and ceilings require less light than do.
Lighting can be an underestimated factor in determining the way we feel and the way we operate physiologically and on an unconscious level to say nothing of its influence on our emotions.
The old holds true when it comes to bedroom lighting. Some couples see the bedroom as a place to enjoy closeness where they can speak while couples and individuals see it as a multi functional area and sleep, read, watch television or engage in hobbies. Whatever functions the bedroom space functions, there’s lighting that satisfies these requirements.
Task lighting should be a consideration, when reading is a frequent action and the needs of your spouse who might not share your enthusiasm should be a substantial factor. Matching bedside tables and lighting offer a wonderful equilibrium that is decorative and practical. The colour level should be lower than your mind level to prevent glare and to reduce disturbing your spouse. Consider using opaque shades since they have a tendency to decrease the bleeding over on your spouses side of the bed and obviously dim the light. Each reading light should have its own on-off switch and a darker.
Each reading light should be corrected so that they shine away from your spouse and should be placed to get rid of shadows. Swing-arm lights are also another choice.
