Bedroom Light Fixtures
LED Lights For Your Bedroom are great options for both decoration, and beautification, and for reinforcing healthy sleep patterns. Your bedroom light fixtures are literally how you start your day. It is likely the first thing that you do is absentmindedly flick on the most convenient light you can reach, in your pre-caffeinated haze, to find your clothes and shoes. The lighting results might produce several different results, where you get brilliant lighting that helps you start the day, or you get light with a weak, sickly pallor, or the shaking rattle of that ceiling fan you have been meaning to replace for a while.
Only one of those results is what you want!
That absolute best option is full-spectrum natural daylight that gradually illuminates your bedrooms, and helps you to restore and maintain your natural circadian rhythm. Your second-best option is a solid evenly delivered light that fills your room to your preference.
LED Lights for Your Bedroom:
Remote Control Your Bedroom LED Lights:
You probably want remote control over the LED lighting that enters your bedroom!
When you install a remote-controlled LED lighting system into your bedroom, you can easily add flexibility and reliability to your sleep schedule. The beauty of the solar-powered LED system is that you can install them to wake you as the sun rises, helping improve your circadian rhythm and sleep habits. On the other hand, when you have the remote control option for your solar-powered LED lights you can literally reach over, hit a button, and turn off the sun!
Recessed LED Lights:
Recessed LED lights installed in your bedrooms are perfect for a clean, unintrusive, mature and manageable decor. You have a range of size, configuration, and shape options. And then you have your choice between either full spectrum 5000k lights or warm & relaxing 3000k lighting color options available. Because only a wire is run, not requiring a fully framed skylight or reflective tube, you can more easily position solar-powered LED lights. One fun design option allows you to quickly and easily place your light vertically on your wall! This allows you to do things like balance lighting in your bathroom mirrors. Or you can continue to be creative in your home and provide additional lighting to a workstation side-lighting your projects.
Plus you can manage the light intensity of your recessed solar-powered LED with flexible remote control.
Surface Mount LED Lights:
Surface-mounted LED lights are a great option for your bedroom. Ceiling surface-mounted LED lights are great because they require extremely small wire holes into your ceiling sheetrock. That means that you can install your surface-mounted LED lights almost anywhere you want on your ceiling. When you install a recessed LED light into your ceiling or walls you can run into trouble positioning your lights around your home’s structure. If you would like to make sure that you have precise positioning these are the way to go!
LED Light Bulbs:
A screw-in LED light bulb is a great powerful & efficient lighting solution. LED light bulbs produce light by passing electricity into light-emitting diodes. LED light bulbs are much more energy-efficient than similarly sized incandescent light bulbs. When you install an LED light bulb it is significantly more efficient than your old fluorescent lamps.
Houston Daylighting does not typically sell light bulbs, because the focus is more on installing permanent daylight-driven systems. We got out of the business of providing light bulbs for installed systems several years ago. The unfortunate conflict of your home’s bulb coloration against what technicians carried on our trucks caused multiple warranty callbacks because the colors weren’t quite right. We install your tubular skylights during the day. And the bulb color differences were not detected until later that evening when the sun was down and lights all came on. That dissatisfaction forced the evolution of our bulb policy to request that when we install tubular skylights with light kits you give us bulbs that match the rest of your room.
You can find vast selections of screw-in LED bulbs of every shape size and color in online stores like Amazon and at almost all your local grocery and home improvement stores.
Colorful Bedroom, Living Room & Kitchen LED Lights:
When you want a more youthful, entertaining, or vibrant look to your bedroom, living room, or kitchen you can choose to quickly install colorful, temporary accents to your room with colored LED light systems. Many of the systems are programmable and allow both changes in light and active strobe or scrolling functions to further adjust your mood lighting. Some systems even have smartphone apps that let you program and run your system from the palm of your hand and anywhere with your phone!
This technology is moving pretty quickly, the systems are evolving and becoming pretty bold with their creative results. Houston Daylighting typically does not carry these types of LED light systems either, but working with them is a little closer to home. They typically do not require construction work, adding solar panels, or even working in your scorching hot attic. Typically, you can customize, use and program these systems quickly.
Check a few options out here:
Bedroom Ceiling Lights:
Ceiling-mounted lights in your bedroom are by far the most common, especially in modern construction. The two most common types of ceiling-mounted lighting are either a suspended & surface-mounted ceiling and models recessed into your ceiling sheetrock. The most common bedroom ceiling-mounted lights are fans or other types of surface-mounted lighting like track lighting or flush-mounted lighting. The alternative method is recessed lighting that sits ensconced in your sheetrock.
Perfect Full Spectrum Natural Ceiling Lights:
There are highly efficient alternatives to standard bedroom ceiling lighting. One of the most amazing alternatives is a tubular skylight that allows you to capture wasted light from your roof, and pipe it through your attic and into the room of your choice.
You can make your choice of the decorative fixtures that you see in your room and smoothly defuse your light throughout your bedroom spaces. By using natural daylight, you add many benefits to your bedroom.
- You can help alleviate insomnia by restoring your circadian rhythm with natural light.
- You can use perfect light to beautify and enjoy your bedroom more frequently.
- You can bring beautiful refreshing plants into your bedroom to purify your air.
- You can dress without fear of mismatching your colors.
- You can read and lounge without eye strain or fatigue.
For Your Weekend Sleeping In Your Daylight Dimmer:
Have you ever wanted to turn off the sun? Well, now you can!
Both systems use different types of technology to achieve the same results. The tubular daylighting system uses a butterfly baffle system that closes your mirrored reflective inner tube. That chokes off more than 95% of the daytime sunlight that your tubular skylight would deliver. The indoor solar-powered lights option does allow a single button to interrupt the low voltage lines running to your system’s lights.
Both systems allow you to select your light level by stopping the closure of your butterfly baffle or reducing the passed solar-generated electricity to your light system. Both reduce the total light delivered to your bedroom and allow you to take your well-earned break, or sleep in on the weekends!
Bedroom Ceiling Light Fixtures With Design Options:
Location & Quantity:
The most fundamental decision is how many lights and where you plan to install and use your new lights to fill your bedroom with beautiful light. The more systems you add the fuller and more evenly your light delivery. You can effectively eliminate shadows if you choose!
Square or Round:
Next, for both systems, you can choose between square and round. Both have their place in your design decisions and depend upon your own tastes and preferences. Square light fixtures are modern and clean. They stand out from your other standard fixtures and allow you to fully accent your room to your tastes. Alternatively, you can use the square shape, simply to signify that they are different types of lighting and not standard fixtures.
5000k or 3000k Lighting:
Once your positioning, quantity, and shape decisions are complete, you can choose your lighting tint. The full-spectrum daylight is effectively 5000k, delivering all light equally to make beautiful neutral white light. This lighting effectively displays the true colors of your decor and clothing. This lighting also prevents eye strain and boosts your ability to read and see because it utilizes your full vision. Or, you can choose the warming effect of 3000k lighting, which is a more calming night-time light level for some people. Most people choose the full spectrum 5000k lighting because both the tubular skylight and indoor solar-powered lights operate best during the day. The decision’s comments usually come down to the consistency of the lighting coloration between the full spectrum outdoors light and keeping that coloration to match the inside.
Skylight Diffuser Lens:
The final design decision with these systems is for your tubular skylight options. The final decision you can make is how you want to display your light through your tubular skylight’s light diffuser. These surface-mounted diffusers allow you to pick your style. You can choose your basic flat diffuser lens option, choose an upgraded flat lens, or select a stylish three-dimensional premium lens to fit your home’s decor.
Dark Bedroom Ideas:
Deep rich & dark bedroom colors can drink the lighting right out of your bedroom, making it feel dark and cramped. Small shaded windows can also deprive your bedroom of natural light making your room feel oppressively dark. You can have this effect by accident by selecting dark colors. Then you realize how they drink the light from your room. Or over time as trees grow over your windows, blotting out the sun. Once you have your deep rich colors when you run out of daylight your room can fall into extreme darkness. Colors on the grayscale, dark greens, blues, and reds can all drink the light out of your room. Without proper lighting, you are missing the details of your own color choices.
Ideas for Your Dark Bedroom:
There are a few excellent permanent solutions and several economical or temporary ideas that might help. One excellent permanent solution is to bring in more natural daylight with a tubular skylight. That will immediately brighten your dark bedroom with natural lighting showing off your full-color pallet in all its glory. Another long-term solution is to add solar-powered LED lights geared to either 5000k for perfect balance lighting or 3000k for a warming effect. There are many smaller aftermarket products, though if your decor is a dark & conservative theme, many of the colored LED lighting systems may add distracting colors away from your theme.
Cool Modern Bedroom Light Fixtures:
Unique Round & Square Skylights:
It is very rare to find a 30-year-old, proven technology that vastly improves the lives and living standards of everyone who invests in that technology. That almost no one has heard about! Tubular skylights allow you to literally pipe the wasted daylight from your roof, blocking both the harmful UV and heating IR light before they ever enter your home, and then displaying perfect full spectrum daylight. If you have ever wanted to make the sun ‘square’, now is your chance!
Natural Solar Powered Lighting:
Another cool & modern bit of bedroom lighting is using natural solar-powered lights. Everyone talks about solar, but few people do anything about it! This fast and easy investment immediately brightens and betters your room. You get all the cool convenience of off-the-grid solar panels keeping your lights on at a fraction of the investment. With the remote control, you can quickly and easily set your light levels to where you want them. You can set it anywhere between maxed out with the sun fully shining, to completely off!
