The darker is better when it comes to sleeping time.

It is one of the busiest places in your home in waking hours and you can do all these activities when your bedroom is well lit. A well-lit bedroom has more than one lighting source. Here are some useful steps that can help you make your bedroom brighter:
Get Flush-Mount Ceiling Fixtures
Flush-Mount Fixtures are usually a decorative light bulb, which has a plastic or decorative glass bowl-shaped cover. They are one of the most usual sources of overhead light in a bedroom. Such a light can cater to your lighting needs if you have a small to mid sized bedroom. Before moving ahead in the installation process, you should look for the fixture that could match the decorating style of your bedroom.
Opt for a Floor Lamp
There are times when your wall light or ceiling bulb doesn’t help you to highlight or find an object placed on the floor. For highlighting a floor space in your bedroom, you can opt for installing wooden floor lamps. Such lights are available in the height of a side table or a bed with several different designs such as leaf, flower, Christmas, and honeycomb.
Hang Pendant Lights
With a long rod or chain, you can hang down 2-4 pendant lights from the ceiling to have enough light all around your bedroom. While hanging, ensure that the light is just above you after sitting on your bed. You should opt for hanging such a light from the ceiling if your bedroom ceiling is more than 10 feet from the floor. Hang them just over your bed or the furniture item that you use for sitting in your bedroom.
Think of Hanging a Chandelier
Chandeliers, a type of formal ceiling fixture, add unbeatable elegance, glamour, and drama to a room. Although a big and formal chandelier belongs to a large room or hall, a small fixture is an excellent choice for a bedroom adorned with an extensive array of the bedroom styles such as romantic, traditional, and art deco. Selecting a streamlined design can work wonder for your contemporary sleeping space. Hang it on the second half of your bed instead of hanging over your head or in the middle. Think of hanging it when you have a high ceiling.
Look for a Light Attached Ceiling Fan
Every ceiling fan has not a light kit attachment. However, some of you want for a light attached ceiling fan. For enough light during the wake hours. To fulfill this wish, you can attach a bowl-covered bulb to the base of your ceiling fan if your bedroom ceiling is abundantly high.
Consider Recessed Lighting

However, in the contemporary world, people are opting for such lights for their bedrooms too. Such lights work better with other ceiling and wall lights. Go for such lighting if you have a big bedroom with a bed and other furniture items such as a sofa set, and side table. You can hang such lights from the ceiling of any height.
Install Wall Sconces
Whether your bedroom has a sleek contemporary or rustic country style, you will find the best wall sconces for your home lighting. Installed on the bedside, wall sconces are a great choice for lighting a bedroom to make it brighter.
