Why You'll Love Contemporary Bedroom Design
A contemporary sanctuary of serenity. Pleasant dreams are so much easier to come by when you’re serenely enveloped in soothing surroundings, and you’re bedroom should reflect and facilitate that desired state of bliss. You want a bed (and bedding, natch) that you can luxuriate within, furniture pieces that are woody and warm, and - most importantly – lighting that is adjustable and ambient to support activities from reading to romance.
As long as your bedroom lighting can be controlled (via a wall dimmer or on the fixture itself), any combination of fixtures may be appropriate: a table lamp on the dresser, a floor lamp next to the dresser, wall sconces flanking the bed, and a flush ceiling light, pendant, a ceiling fan with light or even a full chandelier glowing from the center of the ceiling.
Bedroom Looks We Love
With the amount of reading and working that occurs in today’s bedrooms, task lighting has become an essential component of a good lighting plan. We like the feel and functionality of swing-arm wall sconces that allow for precise lighting placement. And taking it a step further, plug-in wall lamps are an excellent consideration, offering the same flexibility without the stress of hardwire installation.
Enhance the ambience with a striking console lamp on the dresser. This feature would be more about adding depth and potentially drama to the room rather than a source of direct light, possibly highlighting an object or personal keepsake. Again, dimmable fixtures encouraged to provide a range of lighting options.
Finishing Touches for Bedrooms
Who wants to roll out of bed and encounter a cold floor? Let’s assume nobody. Frame your unfinished floor with a modern area rug, which will be the first thing your feet hit after turning off the contemporary alarm clock that finally replaced your phone as the morning wake-up call.
