When it comes to the bedroom, there are some design tips to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the right fixtures, adding new controls, and completing the finishing touches. If you’re looking for new ideas for your master bedroom or guest room, then visit our showroom today!
Where to Begin?
You might not be sure where to begin when it comes to finding new bedroom lighting, and that’s okay. Everyone has a different vision in mind for their bedroom, as well as a different budget when it comes to purchasing new light fixtures. At Hacienda, we understand that you may have some reservations about spending too much or choosing the wrong lights for your home.
Start by measuring your bedroom and taking stock of what fixtures are already in place. Make notes about where you would like new lights, as well as things like how replacing that old ceiling fan with a mini chandelier would make the space look and feel. By bringing your ideas and the general vision for your bedroom to our store, our certified experts can help guide you down the right path. If you can’t come up with any solid ideas or vision, that’s fine too! We’ll provide you with resources and examples that can get you started.
Browsing Our Selection
Browsing a lighting showroom can be overwhelming, and with our vast selection, you might not be sure where to start. A member of our staff can show you options that are ideal for the bedroom and also provide a catalog with an easy-to-follow layout of lighting manufacturers and styles. With access to quality products from the nation’s leading brands, you’ll soon find that it’s not too difficult to choose your new lighting.
We look forward to helping you start your next lighting project!
Building a New Bedroom
When building a new bedroom, you have control over where the lights go, where the switches will be, and how the space will look, feel, and function. If you’re in the beginning phases of new home construction, then lighting is likely at the top of your list, and the master bedroom is likely one of your main areas of focus.
As you’re designing your new bedroom from scratch, it’s good to keep all three types of lighting — ambient, task, and accent — in mind. Each fixture will add something different to the room, and you’ll want to be sure you have each area covered.
The ambient lighting in your bedroom will come from the main ceiling fixture. You’ll want the light to produce enough illumination to see by whenever you’re in the space, but not be so bright as to overpower the room.
A popular choice for a bedroom’s ambient light is a ceiling fan with a light kit. This can be a great fixture for those sweltering Arizona summers, but you may want something else besides a standard ceiling fan. We offer a great assortment of fan styles and sizes, but if you want a mini chandelier or a semi-flush mount fixture, we can provide that as well. Remember, your ambient fixture is the main source of light in the room, but it’s not the only one.
Task and Accent Lighting
When it comes to the other light fixtures in your bedroom, there are a few obvious choices. You’ll want to have the right bedside lamps, but what about track lighting for any artwork that you want to hang on the wall? You can also put a floor lamp in the corner that sits next to your favorite chair where you sit and read before going to bed (unless you prefer to read in bed). Wall sconces can also be a good choice for the bedroom, and we can recommend the best spots to put them.
Adding New Lighting Controls
Once you’ve chosen all of your ambient, accent, and task lighting, it’s time to select the proper lighting controls. You don’t want every fixture to be controlled by one switch, and by installing multiple switches, dimmers, and more, you can set the perfect mood in your bedroom for any time of day or night. Bedside lamps are easy to control with their own on-off switch, but having a dedicated switch for your sconces and one for the overhead light will make life much easier.
We hope you’ll let us help you build your new bedroom!
Updating Your Current Bedroom
Renovating a house presents its own challenges, and if you’re updating your current bedroom, then it’s important to have access to quality lighting options. You might be tired of seeing the same old fixtures on the ceiling and the walls, and you want to bring new life into the space. You may have just moved into the house, and the previous owners had much different tastes than you.
Adding new lighting can help you put your own touch on the bedroom. You’ve picked out the sheets and blankets, and you’ve replaced the curtains, so why not update the lighting while you’re at it?
New Styles Bring New Life
The old fixtures in your bedroom may not match your personal sense of style, and you want to take them down as soon as possible. Before you do that, however, it’s a good idea to research some new styles and see what you like. Our showroom has many lighting styles to choose from, and you can select anything from Rustic and Traditional to Industrial and Art Deco. Each style has its place in modern lighting design, and our expert staff can help you decide which one best fits your vision for your upgraded bedroom.
When considering style, it’s important to remember that your fixtures will provide both form and function within the bedroom. You want them to look great, but you also need them to work properly and provide the light you need. A certain fixture of a certain style might catch your eye and you may find it exquisite, but within the dimensions of your bedroom, it may not provide what you need.
A new bedroom lighting style should bring new life into the space. By taking everything into consideration, from the size of the room to the height of the ceiling, you can choose the right style that you’ll love looking at and using for years to come.
Adding to the Space
Perhaps you’re adding on to your bedroom so that it’s more spacious. If you’re knocking out a wall and building on to the house, then you’re going to have to do more than just update the existing light fixtures. You’ll need new lights for the space, and you’ll want to take into consideration how the room will change with its new square footage. You may need to move the ceiling fixture so that it’s in the middle of the new layout, and you may have to add more accent lighting around the perimeter of the room.
Making Your Bedroom Amazingly Comfortable
In the end, the goal of new lighting for an existing bedroom is to make it as comfortable as possible. While you’ll be asleep during most of the time you spend in the room, it’s still important to have the right lighting in the right places. With new fixtures to fill your updated bedroom, you’ll wonder how you ever lived with those old lights for so long!
Installing Your New Bedroom Lighting
When the time comes to install your new bedroom lighting, you might feel comfortable removing the old fixtures and installing the new lights. However, it’s important to remember that you’re dealing with wiring and electricity, and even a trained professional needs to be cautious. You’ll also be dealing with metal and glass, which can be dangerous if mishandled.
At Hacienda, we can recommend a certified electrician who can take care of all your lighting installation needs. If you’re building a new house, then you likely have a contractor or subcontractor who’s handling everything, but if you’re renovating, then it’s good to have a professional you can trust.
Keep in mind that it may take some time to get all of your new light fixtures in place, especially in a bedroom that you’re renovating. New wiring will have to be run in the ceiling and behind the walls, and new switches will have to be mounted. For ceiling fixtures, the electrician will have to make sure that the ceiling fan or chandelier is secured to a beam or joist. If you’re adding recessed lighting in any part of the room, then new holes will have to be cut and the light boxes will have to be installed one at a time. Patience is key, but we know that you’ll absolutely love your new lighting when it’s finished.
Improving Each Bedroom in the House
The Master Bedroom
We’ve stayed mostly focused on the master bedroom when discussing your new lighting, and for good reason. When thinking about updating bedroom lighting, most of our customers have their master suite in mind, since that’s where they spend a majority of their time. If you don’t have kids, or the kids have grown up and no longer live at home, then you may want to use your entire budget on the master bedroom. If that’s the case, then we’ll be more than happy to help.
Your Kids’ Bedrooms
If the kids are still at home, then why not let them get in on the lighting fun? After moving into a new house, you may have a son or a daughter who wants a certain room, but the lighting just isn’t up to par for what they want or what they need. A new ceiling fan or small flush-mount fixture can be ideal for a child’s room.
You’ll also want to pick out lamps and other accent lighting for the space. If your child is in school, then their desk is likely in their room. They’ll need a good desk lamp so that they can see as they do their homework and other activities. A well-placed floor lamp will also add to the space and make the room brighter and more functional.
The Guest Bedroom
The guest bedroom may not be used very often, but you want it to have the proper lighting for when friends and family do come to stay. You might be developing a new design for the guest room, just as you have with the master bedroom, and our staff is here to help you find the right fixtures. You’ll want to have an ambient fixture for the ceiling, bedside lamps for task and accent lighting, and perhaps track lighting for any artwork that you want to put up in order to make the room more inviting.
