Master Bedroom Lighting for Your Style
Are you someone who likes to change your decor and paint color regularly? If so, it might be wise to choose neutral master bedroom ceiling lights rather than a statement piece or chandelier. A classic semi-flush with drum shade or a neutral ceiling fan will match your decor through all the new bedding, statement ceilings and Pantone’s color picks from one year to the next.
Is your style distinctly your own? Is your decor a permanent and expanding collection of favorite pieces carefully selected throughout the years? Go for the statement piece, the extravagant beaded chandelier, the unique, contemporary LED wall sconce. This strategy lets your style shine bright with master bedroom lighting ideas that complement your carefully curated pieces.
If you like to be up on the latest trends and you aren’t worried about changing your fixtures as often as you change your sheet sets, now is your time to go wild! There are so many beautiful and innovative bedroom light fixtures waiting to be discovered among our name brands. Chandeliers, ceiling fans, semi-flush, pendants and wall sconces are all great choices for master bedroom lighting. In fact, you may want to include most of these options in your master bedroom lighting ideas to achieve the layered look we’ll discuss in a moment.

The Best Bedroom Lighting? Layers of Light
It is advisable to incorporate the three basic layers of lighting (ambient, task and accent lighting) into your design plan for maximum versatility in your master bedroom lighting. However, the most important layers for the master bedroom are ambient and task lighting.
Ambient lighting is the base layer of lighting for a room that produces general illumination while creating atmosphere and glow. Traditionally, a semi-flush fixture or a ceiling fan is used to provide ambient lighting for the master bedroom.

To up the master bedroom glamour, a chandelier makes a brilliant centerpiece and an effective source of ambient lighting. One of our favorite master bedroom lighting ideas is to add a mini-chandelier to your walk-in closet or dressing room for a surprisingly sumptuous touch.
Task Lighting illuminates specific areas dedicated to activities and provides bright light that makes it easier to see small details. Table lamps, wall sconces, and even carefully placed mini-pendants can serve as task lighting in the bedroom. These master bedroom light fixtures are best used in pairs, flanking the head of your bed frame. A switched sconce or table lamp will allow a smooth transition from reading to dreaming; just make sure to turn off the overhead light before you cozy up with a good book.
