Decor Q&A: Bedroom Lighting?

Q.

The Nest Q&A

How do I light my bedroom for the best effect?

A.

When it comes to your bedroom, it's all about mood lighting. If you already have recessed lights or a ceiling fixture, hook it up with a dimmer so you can control how light or dark the room is. In addition, choose two side table lamps for either side of the bed that are no more than 40 watts each. You’ll want the lamps to be the same height to keep the room feeling balanced and comfortable. Avoid buying floor lamps -- they add too much of an office-like vibe and aren't easily accessible to reach from your bed.
