The perfect mood. The perfect lighting. Your bedroom. Could it get any better? The best get away for a peaceful transition into sleep or just relaxation. There is no place like home and the best part is you can do it all, with the touch of a switch!!
The lighting in a room can set the atmosphere. Let’s talk bedroom lighting.
Traditionally, Bedroom lighting has always been a set of attractive table lamps .Sometimes, even better, some recessed lighting or cove lights for your false ceiling. Times with chandeliers and scones also existed. Now, without leaving out the rustic touch of the old style and a with a mix of modernity, we have the contemporary hanging lights!
Hanging lights give a unique look of their own! These hanging lights include pendants (lights with a cord or chain system for hanging) of various types like bowl pendants, mini pendants, bell pendants and linear pendants. Chandeliers are also decorative hanging lights having more number of arms. The chandeliers are of various types mainly on the basis of their size and sometimes shape.
Here are few examples:

Why always the bedside or even above the bed? Because hanging lights are often placed above the main element in a room – bed, in the case of a bedroom. But it needn’t always be like that. Take a look at the following example, the lights are widespread. They create a dazzling charm to the space and set a romantic mood. Maybe not your everyday bedroom style, but your holiday getaway?! Yes!
When you place a chandelier or a pendant above the bed, it creates a focal point. Few such cases are given below:
In this example, a variety of lighting is used. There is a chandelier, a sconce, a tableside lamp and a ceiling mounted light. This is a methodology to coordinate hanging lights with other forms of lighting. A single glare or source of light is boring and monotonous.
