Cozy Bedroom Lights For Optimum Sleep Induction

Many homes in Metro Manila come with basic bedroom lights that are often overly bright fluorescent lights that don’t inspire a feeling of rest, relaxation or comfort. Professional designers advise that warm and soft lights are better suited for bedrooms, as they suggest the desire to sleep.

As you turn in for the night, here are a few ideas on how your room’s lighting should look like for optimum sleep induction:

Gentle Side Table Lamps

Forget harsh blue lights. Those are actually the worst. You’ll want softer lights provided by side table lamps and the beauty of it is that if you’re sharing the room with a spouse, you can control the lighting on your side, making it darker if you want to go to bed and your other half wants to stay up for a while to read, or vice versa.

Rather than having harsh fluorescent lighting, consider installing running LED lights in the folds of your ceilings or walls so that the light becomes more ambient. The trick is to hide the running LED lights rather than have it out in the open.

Chandeliers lend a touch of luxury to any room, but to create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere, opt for a modern chandelier or contemporary lights where the light source is diffused by semi-transparent means or is bounced off the ceiling.

Hipster Fairy Christmas Lights

Fairy lights, also known as Christmas lights, can be a great addition to your room. They’re affordable and they create an almost fantasy-like environment in your room, which will put you in the right frame of mind before bedtime.

Consider having smaller sources of lights scattered all over the bedroom rather than a large central source of light from the ceiling. The benefit of this is that you can control the amount of light in your room, whether you want more or less by turning each small bulb on or off.

Bedroom lighting should strike a fine balance between practicality and aesthetic values, meaning that there has to be enough light for you to function well without injuring yourself before bedtime. However, the lighting should also promote a relaxing state of mind.
