How to Change Up Your Bedroom’s Look With Lighting

Switching up your modern bedroom lighting for something a little less conventional can make a world of a difference in your space. Here are some unique ways to change up your bedroom’s look with great lighting:

Pendant lighting is becoming a popular alternative to the standard table lamp. Bare bulbs keep things simple, but why not add a bit of texture with a wooden shade?

Even just offsetting one side of your bed with a drum shade pendant will instantly update the look of your bedroom.

Floor lamps are another great option for changing up modern bedroom lighting. I like the look of a task light, which is perfect if you like reading in bed.

An oversized floor lamp hanging over the bed adds an understated look to a minimal space. Get one with a wide base that can slip under the bed or bedside table to maximize space.

If you’re married to the idea of a table lamp, but still want to mix things up, try an ultra modern lamp in a bright color.

Or you could consider swapping out your bedside table lamp for a desk task light. It gives your nightstand a sleeker look and the task light is optimal for some nighttime reading.

An industrial styled wall lamp adds some serious style to your bedroom. Bonus, it frees up your nightstand so you can have some extra table space.

Opting for a table lamp that’s a little more glamorous can give your bedroom that luxurious feel, like this pair of Patricia Urquiola Caboche Table Lamps.

And if you really want to take the route towards luxury, why not install a pair of cascading chandeliers on either side of your bed? It creates a dramatic and theatrical presence that’s absolutely elegant.
