Let The Light Shine At The Window.

Installing three (or more) 4-inch LED downlight fixtures on the ceiling will provide a subtle grazing effect on the curtains in front of the bedroom window. Choosing faux silk, velvet, or linen curtains in a color palette that complements your bedroom will get you better results. Also, if you plan to experiment with downlight installations above the window, consider dimmable fixtures that provide a warm-white correlated color temperature (CCT).

Keep It In The Closet!  

Whether considering a wardrobe or walk-in closet, downlight fixtures are the ideal lighting solution, as they serve dual-purpose. The first reason for installing a series of downlights in front of your wardrobe or inside the walk-in closet is bright illumination! Downlight installations will allow you to see clothes and other things in the wardrobe/ closet. The second reason is beautification. Adding a few ambient lights will enhance the looks of your wardrobe area or walk-in closet! The only thing to consider here is that when choosing the downlights for general/task lighting, go for a daylight white or cool white CCT. If you wish to install the fixtures for ambient lighting purposes, choose a warm-white color tone. 

Edge To Edge.

Installing downlight fixtures on the edges of your bedroom’s ceiling will allow you to enjoy a minimum level of illumination while keeping the blinding-lights effect in check! However, you might want to look for eye ball-style downlights or baffle lights for the corner-position installation.

No-Regret Under Bed Lighting!

If your bed allows some space between the base and floor, consider installing a warm-white LED tape lighting. While installing the self-sticking strip lights, make sure to face the LED-lit side towards the floor, as doing so will offer a reflected lighting effect. Installing LED lights under your bed will also ensure that your slippers will always be in sight! 

Flaunting The Baseboard Space.

Often, people do not pay attention to the baseboards that cover the walls. Line the baseboard of your bedroom with a hot pink or purple LED light strip, and you’ll love the pop-color effect! However, if crazy colors are not for you, choosing white strip lights is a safe choice. 

Precision Backlights For Telivision!

Do you have a TV in your bedroom? If you do, think about eye-pleasing illumination coming from the rear end of your television. Looks fantastic, right! Take an LED strip light in the color of choice and measure how much you’ll need. Stick the strip onto the rear side of your TV and make sure the LED side faces the wall. 

Trace That Display Case.

If you own a display case that holds the prized travel souvenirs and antique brass artifacts, feel free to highlight it by throwing-in an LEd strip. Choose between warm, daylight, and cool-while CCTs and pick the right color tone for your precious display case!
