“Layering your lighting is the key to creating the perfect look and feel in your home. This is particularly important in a bedroom, as you will need a combination of task and ambient lighting solutions. Use a matching pair of bedside lamps to provide an elegant tailored feel to the bedroom. If you invest in neutral bases you can experiment with shade options using brighter colours for more neutral schemes to add interest.”

"Ceiling lights provide an opportunity to be more creative. Choose a colourful or ornate piece to provide a focal point in the room. A dimmer switch offers flexibility, providing
brighter lighting for when you are getting dressed and softer mood lighting for bedtimes. Using a master dimmer switch to control ceiling and wall lights means that you can switch
them all on or off with minimum fuss and use bedside or reading lamps before bed".

Reading lights above the headboard are a nice touch and will really make you feel at home – whether you are catching up on a favourite novel or surfing on a tablet.”
