Bedroom Lighting Design Ideas

"Bedroom Lighting Design Ideas"

Let me give you some bedroom lighting tips as an electrical contractor with more than 20 years in the field . Yes we do lighting design as well as electrical alterations to existing homes . When you're looking for lighting ideas for bedrooms as a standard homeowner or even an interior designer you may be tempted to limit your train of thought only to different types of fixtures . By this I mean that you may try to take the existing wiring in the home and make that work for you in spite of what you would really want . If you're considering buying fixtures for your master bedroom or kids bedroom and you want something that looks nice , chances are the cost of the fixture is going to be greater than the amount it would cost to make alterations to the wiring . my point is this . You may be tempted to spend a lot of money on a really nice fixture to go in the center of the room because that is the only place you have wiring . For the same price you could put a less expensive bedroom light in the center and have the existing wiring altered to accommodate wall sconces Or table lamps on a switch or recessed lighting . Wall sconces on dimmers also make for a very romantic addition to your master bedroom lighting . Having various different light sources in your bedroom is a great way to set the mood at certain times and have the task lighting that is necessary at other times . In addition with every area that you place a light fixture in your bedroom there is an opportunity to decorate . By tying the different types of fixtures together in a theme you can dramatically change or enhance the decor of your bedroom . Yes there are different types of light fixtures that are made for the different parts of your home . Most websites that have light fixture examples on them will break them down by room . You can simply go to the bedroom area and see unique lighting that is made for your bedroom . Don"t limit your lighting ideas or design based on the existing wiring !

Cool lighting for bedrooms and the wiring necessary to make it work .

So what is the cost to add lighting to these different areas in your bedroom ? While it is true that you will see this on no other website anywhere in the country . I will be happy to share with you some standard ballpark pricing for adding lighting and wiring to areas where there currently is nothing but a wall .For bedroom sconce lighting adding the wiring is fairly straightforward . Typically the master bedroom is on the second floor of the home . This allows for attic access above the room . But even without attic access we are able to install the wiring in the walls for sconce lighting . The typical price that we charge to add a sconce light to a bedroom location is $125.00 . So if you had two sconce lights that she wanted installed on your master bedroom wall the cost of the $250.00 . Now if you're looking at nice sconce lights chances are the fixtures themselves are at least $125.00 . Many of the fixtures that we hang our 3 to 4 times that amount . So when you compare what we do to the price of bedroom light fixtures you can see how you could change the entire layout of your bedroom lighting to whatever design or ideas you may have without breaking the bank . I will give you some other prices as well . If you have no overhead light and you would like to add a light fixture to the center of the bedroom this typically costs about $225.00 . If you have three or more bedrooms we can discount that to $195.00 . If you have a ceiling fan that you want installed the center of the bedroom the average cost is about $225.00 . This includes running a wire from the existing switch in the bedroom through the attic to a location in the center of the room for the light or ceiling fan . Typically the existing light switch is controlling a wall outlet . That can be left to control the wall outlet for lamps which I recommend . Or you can simply use the existing switch to control the light or the ceiling fan in the center of the bedroom . Another commonly requested item in bedrooms is recessed lighting . Recessed lighting is typically $110.00 per fixture . In a master bedroom the typical idea for recessed lighting is for that surround a ceiling fan and the final pattern of all five fixtures is like a five on a dice . I should add that the $110.00 price does include the light fixture , the trim , the light bulb , installation , and all wiring necessary . It is a turnkey price . well there it is . You now know exactly what it should cost to add any type of unique bedroom lighting you may think of . I really can't think of any other types of lighting possible . Well I can , as far as recessed lighting is concerned for bedrooms . You can also use what are called mini recessed lights . these are 4 inches in diameter rather than 6 inches in diameter . You can also use different styles of trams on the recessed lighting . Both for mini and regular six-inch . For minis most times people use an eyeball type directional trim that illuminates some sort of wall art or family pictures . For the six-inch people typically use a white baffle trim but you can also use a white wall washer trim . This does as its name suggests and washes the wall with light . If you have any artwork or photographs or just a great painting or textured wallpaper on the wall this is a really cool bedroom lighting idea .

Minka Group Lighting , Great Bedroom Lighting Design

The pictures on this page are light fixtures from a company that I ran across several years ago . As you can see this company has some really cool lighting fixtures and I thought that it would be very helpful for people who are looking for bedroom lighting ideas and pictures online . If you contact us at Providence electric I can personally help you order these fixtures and even provide installation . You can also contact the store directly that carries them . It is a lighting store here in Charlotte near downtown . The name of the stores lighting and bulbs unlimited . I don't like to put outgoing links on my site so I will leave it at that but they are located On try on st . When it comes to kids bedroom lighting , most of the time what we install is recessed lighting . People are not so much concerned about design when it comes to their children's bedroom , typically speaking . What they are concerned about is having an adequate amount of light so that the children can do their homework . I know that when my kid is doing his homework he is focused on the homework and not on the lighting . Sometimes I catch him in a dark corner huddled with the book or candle and can barely read it . Recessed lighting is a great solution for this type of problem . Recessed lighting is very bright directly below the light fixture . This is because recessed lighting directs all of the light lumens downward . When I'm thinking about bedroom lighting tips to give my customers one of the things that I emphasize on a regular basis is the fact that surface mount lighting fixtures broadcast their light horizontally . Recessed lighting broadcasts its light directly down . The interior of the recessed light is intentionally reflective . As a light travels out horizontally from the light bulb it hits the side of the recessed light and is directed downwards .So in the average children's bedroom we would install four recessed lights or even five in a larger bedroom . Recessed lighting offers a very uniform and even distribution of the light . As I've stated many other places on our website while we're on the subject of recessed lighting . Please use incandescent bulbs in your recessed lighting . While florescent lighting is great for the environment it is a terrible lighting source for your home . In large office buildings a government has mandated that we install florescent lighting . However there are many downfalls to this . On the color rendering index florescent lighting is only 20% of natural daylight . Incandescent light has 99% of the colors of natural daylight .

What is the difference between bedroom lighting fixtures and fixtures made for other parts of your home ?

Well as you might imagine bedroom lighting fixtures are medium in size comparative to other fixtures . The wall sconces that are made for bedrooms are made with the idea in mind that you're going to be using them for reading . While sconce lights for different rooms of your house usually have arms or light bulb sockets that point upwards , typically speaking bedroom sconce lighting will emit the light horizontally for the best possible lighting output . When it comes to hanging chandeliers for a bedroom the same system holds true as far as size is concerned . Bedroom light fixtures are smaller than light fixtures that are made to accommodate a foyer or a living space . The smaller the bedroom the smaller the light fixtures should be , obviously . You don't want to get a larger type light fixture that is made for living room and try and cram it into your bedroom . It will be obvious that it was made for some other purpose . All the light fixtures on this page are presented with the idea in mind that this is exactly what you are looking for . If you're looking for unique bedroom lighting and cool bedroom lighting ideas the company that is shown in the images above is a great bet .

Bedroom Electrical Outlets

Many homes don’t have the proper amount of outlets installed in the bedroom areas. Prior to 1979 and even later in some houses the electrician was not required to install outlets in as many locations as today . The National Electrical Code requires that there be an outlet six feet from every break in the wall and then every 12 feet . Older homes were not subject to this regulation . This causes home owners to run potentially hazardous cords to supply household appliances . We can remedy this problem and add as many as needed, whether for necessity or convenience.
