Bedroom lighting is such a vital part of creating a cosy, comforting space and yet something we can tend to overlook when planning our bedroom décor. Thankfully, here at Wayfair.co.uk we have a huge selection of bedroom lighting to get your creative juices flowing and we’ll be able to inspire you to see bedroom lighting in a new, well, light! When choosing your bedroom lighting there are many factors to consider for example your own personal style preferences, the intended purpose of the light, the size and shape of your room and whether you want extra features like Energy-saving bulbs, dimmer switches, or LED compatible fixtures. Another thing to consider is whether you want a fixture to provide decorative lighting for a calming atmosphere of rest and relaxation, or task lighting for jobs that require focus, such as reading.

Ceiling Lights At Wayfair UK we have a huge selection of ceiling lights in various different styles, such as flush lights, pendants, spotlights, and chandeliers. Flush lights are one of the more typical forms of bedroom lighting due to the scope of their beautiful and varied designs and the fact that they don’t hang down from the ceiling, so are perfect for rooms with lower ceilings. Ceiling spotlights are great for a modern, minimalistic look and as many of them use LEDs, they are a long-lasting, energy-saving, environmentally-friendly option. Pendants are a trendy way of making a statement with your lighting in rooms with high-ceilings or perhaps in rooms where you wish to highlight a certain feature like a desk or dressing table. Many of our pendant lights are height-adjustable so you can tailor them to your room, making a statement that suits many décor styles. Chandeliers add an instant touch of glamour and grandeur to your bedroom, and are both stunning as an aesthetic focal point and functional in brightening a room which doesn’t get much light with ambient lighting- indirect, evenly-spread light that illuminates the whole room. Opt for a mini-chandelier if you’re on a budget or if you want a more subtle yet glam effect. While they may appear delicate, our high-quality options are incredibly sturdy. That said, we wouldn’t advise swinging from the chandelier, no matter how much you may want to!
Wall Lights Wall lighting is a somewhat underused lighting form which can however completely rejuvenate a room and add an extra element to your interior design. If your room is large and lacks natural light, you might appreciate having a wall flush light to brighten a dark corner or highlight a mirror or dressing-table if you need more light to be able to get ready in the morning, applying make-up or styling your hair. Flush lights are also great as accent lighting to show off a photo, a piece of art, or an interesting architectural feature. At Wayfair.co.uk you can also shop online for wall-mounted swing arm and reading lights which are a perfect option if you don’t have space next to your bed for a table lamp, or if you have a special reading nook in your room that needs illuminating. Turn your wall lighting from a wall-flower to the main event of your bedroom lighting!
Table Lamps If you have space for a bedside table in your bedroom, then it only makes sense to get a table lamp to go alongside. A bedside lamp is ideal if you enjoy reading in bed or if your light switch is far away and you don’t want to have to keep getting up to turn it off at night. Lamps are the best way to combine basic lighting needs with style, helping to decorate your bedroom. Table lamps come in a variety of styles, designs and colours meaning that it’s incredibly easy to find a lamp to complement your existing bedroom décor. There are other things to bear in mind when choosing a table lamp, such as whether its height will match the height of your bedside table, and what type of bulb or shade colour is best, for example, if you’re going to be using the lamp to read with, it’s best to choose white or off-white bulbs, whereas if the lamp is more to create a mood, darker bulbs and colour schemes are better for a more subtle effect. Another choice is whether you want a traditional lamp with a flick-switch and an either off or on setting, or whether you’d prefer a lamp with touch-control dimmer functions which would allow you to create both that subtle ambiance and a brighter, more functional light depending on your mood.
Floor Lamps Floor lamps are another way to really brighten up your bedroom by installing a sleek, stylish feature light. Floor lamps are one of the most versatile types of lighting, and their height leaves for a lot of room for imagination when it comes to design. More traditional types of floor lamps would consist of a straight, thin stand with a small shade giving it the appearance of an elongated table lamp. Other variations would be a straight stand with a small modern fixture at the top giving a look of sleek and subtle elegance. More contemporary floor lamps come in all sorts of sizes and shapes, be they with curved frames, multiple bulb fixtures, coloured neon tube lights, or for a touch of Hollywood-glamour, spot-light style lamps with tripod frames. Floor lamps are great for larger bedrooms, especially larger, more intricate lamps. Make sure you know the dimensions of the area you wish to put your lamp before choosing a style. Even the smallest of spaces can fit an upright tube light or thin fixture without an issue and the added benefit of floor lighting is that it requires no table to sit upon, or a wall upon which to be hung making it a quick, easy, and stylish way to add extra brightness to your bedroom.
