IKEA Bright ideas: How to light your bedroom


Hello my name is Ray. I work for IKEA as an interior designer. And today I want to talk to you about how to create a warm, cosy, functional bedroom with a combination of lighting. So, let’s start with general lighting. A ceiling light provides us with a good general light so we can… … find things… … or, to get enough light while we’re cleaning. Besides good general light, we need task lighting, to help us perform specific activities… …like reading. The light should be directed to give our eyes the best possible light. The adjustable heads also keep the light away from our partner. Another activity we do in the bedroom, is getting dressed. In this wardrobe, we‘ve used integrated task lighting, with LED lighting, so we can see our clothes, we can get dressed and not disturb other people in the room. By combining light above the mirror and lamps either side of it, you get an even light and are able to see yourself without any shadows. Finally, we have the last lights that will turn our bedroom into a homey, cosy and inviting room – mood lights. A cosy ambience helps us unwind after a hard day at work. Remember that ceiling lamp? The possibility to dim its light makes it work as a mood lamp too. So there you have it, when we combine lighting and different functions we create a bedroom that is a practical room and an inviting room for rest.
