Shop Bedroom Pendant Lights at Zest Lighting
There are so many ways to light up your bedroom, you can use bright paint walls, windows, or even shiny flooring. You can also add floor lamps or bedside table lamps. But, did you know that you can use pendant lights to add some light to your room without spending too much? Yes, you can use pendant lights in your bedroom, they’re no longer just for the kitchen or dining room. Bedroom pendant lights can help brighten up your space and they come in various designs, shapes, and finishes. You can even hang them on either side of the bed to replace table lamps - this free up precious space on bedside tables.
Tips on Using Bedroom Pendant Lights
Hanging bedroom pendant lighting is best with high bedroom ceilings—10 feet or more.
You can use pendant lights as bedside lighting by dropping them down over the nightstands. Just make sure to leave enough space between the nightstand and the bottom of the pendant: at least 12 inches and up to 22 inches.
If you are hanging pendants for general room lighting, position them near the bottom of your bed, towards the center of the room.
In the bedroom, pendants look best over the bed or other furniture, rather than hanging over walkways.
Watch out for clear glass or open designs that might be too bright for bedroom comfort.
Save Space and Add Drama with Bedside Pendant Lights
Installing pendant lights on either side of the bed adds drama to a bedroom and creates a definite designer feel – but this is a bedside lighting idea that needs to be planned in early to a room revamp because, like wall lighting, it needs to be wired in professionally, rather than just plugged in like a lamp. Ensure there are separate switches either side of the bed to control each light individually, too.
That said, it creates a lovely low pool of light and saves space on the bedside table. Choose your lampshade carefully – opaque ones will direct the light downwards which will look lovely, but won't be practical if you like to read in bed. Another option for bedside lighting is the dropped pendant or a grouping of pendants. Group pendants in odd numbers and a range of sizes for best effect, perfect for a stylish hotel look.
Choosing the Right Size of Bedside Pendant Lights
One of the issues hanging bedside pendants is that the sizing is all wrong. The shade itself is either too large or too small for the room. The big thing to keep in mind when choosing pendants is that they need to be the correct scale. They need to look right in relation to the size of the bedside tables beneath them. But they also need to be in proportion to the size of the bed you have.
One thing to remember is to never hang a pendant light that is wider than the width of your bedside. It will be too overbearing in the space, and it’ll make the scale of your bedsides seem off. You might want your pendant lights to be slightly narrower than the width of the bedside. Provide a distance of 10cm or so on either side of your pendant in relation to the width of your bedside and you’re onto a winner.
