Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights.
