Bedroom ceiling lights brighten bedrooms, save space, and spruce up style. Choose the best ceiling lights for your house here.

Bedroom ceiling lights do more than just illuminate your room. They can save you space, add style, and can even be transferred to other areas in your home. When choosing the right ones, it’s best to choose bedroom ceiling lights that cover all corners of your room.

 

Benefits of Bedroom Ceiling Lights

 

Space-Efficient

 

Bedroom ceiling lights, when powerful and dimmable, can save your room space. There will be no need for clunky floor lamps or bedside lamps that take up room for other things like tables, books, and more.

 

Saves Electricity

 

Most bedroom ceiling lights run on LED light fixtures. No matter how many bulbs they require, these LEDs will definitely help you save a buck or two when it comes to your electricity bill. Moreover, they are eco-friendly too. LED lights are low maintenance and can last for more than a decade without ever needing a replacement. A word of caution though: these lights are bright. Thus, if you want to buy these, make sure they have dimmable settings (or at least a frosted glass casing).

 

Equal Illumination

 

Compared to traditional lamps, bedroom ceiling lights have more equal illumination. Since they sit above the entire room, these lights can brighten up more than one space at one go. 

 

What Color Should My Bedroom Ceiling Lights Be?

Planning a bedroom includes deciding on the best bedroom colors, bedroom storage shelves, and more. However, a factor that is often overlooked pertains to color. Which color fits which aesthetic and what colors complement each other?

 

 

Lights are often a footnote in room planning, but they can actually command the entire space of the room. Harsh white lights can make it seem sickly, while overly dim lights can make your rooms look eerie. Ceiling lights have to coordinate with every single item in the bedroom.

 

 

So, what color should your bedroom ceiling lights be? The answer is simple: it depends. However, there are ways to gauge what lights go with your bedroom. First, recognize your aesthetic because bedroom ceiling lights can change that right away. Is your room farmhouse-style? Glam-Luxe? Modern? Retro? A bit of everything jumbled in one? 

 

 

Choose a light that has finishes that complement your hardware. Lights with black and bronze detailing fit dark furniture, while silver and steel go with light browns, and sometimes blacks. 

 

 

The best bedroom ceiling lights are dimmable and adjustable. These features make it easy for the lights to fit any room they are in. When push comes to shove and you’re not sure what lights to get, just buy bedroom ceiling lights with range and high customization.

 

What is “Too Bright” For Your Bedroom?

Bedrooms should be a space for comfort and peace. Thus, direct light might be too harsh for such a place. In the same vein, too many lights can cause headaches and migraines, which is why many interior designers agree that bedrooms should only have one main light source. 

 

 

If you’re wondering what can make your bedroom too bright? Then the answer is once again, “it depends.” Smaller bedrooms can benefit from a singular medium-lit light source, whereas larger bedrooms may need a main light source with many LED bulbs for even illumination. In both of these choices, a ‘dimmer’ lighting option is always a green flag. 

 

 

To be more specific, you can calculate how bright a light should be depending on the room you plan to put it in. Multiply your room’s length with its width to get your room’s square feet. Once you’re done with this, you can decide on the lumens (brightness) of your bedroom ceiling lights. 

 

 

As a rule of thumb, bedrooms need 20 lumens per square foot. From here, multiply the required lumens per square foot. The answer you get can also help you choose the light wattage of your room. Four hundred fifty lumens is equal to 40 watts. One thousand one hundred lumens is equal to 75 (watts), so on and so forth. 

 

 

For this question, it is always best to check your light’s packaging. Usually, these can be answered by a simple glance at its features.

 

What Lights To Put in a Bedroom With a Ceiling Fan?

Another common question for people buying bedroom ceiling lights is whether or not they can still use lights in the presence of a ceiling fan. While some are lucky to buy ceiling fans with lights built-in, others simply have ceiling fans, with manufacturers hoping natural light pierces through its room. 

 

 

Bedroom ceiling lights have many benefits, so why let a ceiling fan stop you? The easy answer to “What lights to put in a bedroom with a ceiling fan?” is that you can modify the fans yourself. Often, ceiling fans have optional lighting sockets. Light kits are an easy fix for this—purchase one, a light bulb, and bring your screwdriver with you for a DIY afternoon. 

 

 

Should you want to get rid of your ceiling fan altogether, you can opt for this too. Bedroom ceiling lights are worth the swap, and most rooms are powered by air conditioning nowadays anyway. 

 

Types of Ceiling Lights

 

Flush Mount Ceiling Lights

These lights are the standard bedroom ceiling lights you think of when you are asked to imagine what they look like. Usually dome-shaped and stuck onto the ceiling, these lights blend in. They do their job—illuminate a room, nothing more and nothing less. 

 

 

For decorative and loud rooms, these may be a perfect fit.  They can brighten a space without attracting too much attention to themselves. These also work best for rooms with a ceiling of at least 8 feet tall. 

 

 

Still, more quiet rooms can benefit from these too. Sometimes all you need is a light that does its job well, without all the fuss. If that sounds like something you prefer, then consider getting a flush mount ceiling light instead. 

 

Semi-Flush Mount Ceiling Lights

Compared to flush mount ceiling lights, semi-flush mount lights are more decorative and use up more space. To tell one from the other, you just have to check how far the light extends: a semi-flush will dangle a bit below the ceiling while a flush is stuck on the right to it. 

 

 

These semi-flush mount ceiling lights come in different forms: glass, fabric, metal, and crystal are some of the most popular. The best bedroom ceiling lights are often made with fabric and (frosted) glass—this cushions the brightness of one’s light. 

 

 

Still, bedroom ceiling lights made of glass often also double as decorative pieces. Thus, glass ceiling lights join metal and crystal in exuding elegance and style that can fit any room they are in.
