If you are moving into a new place, or just want to renovate/rejuvenate your home, your bedroom is a crucial piece of that puzzle. It all starts with the lighting, because without it good luck finding anything once the sun sets. Below are some tips and tricks to better light your place of sleep to find peace and comfort every night.

You Can Never Have Too Many Lights

Okay, maybe you can. But for this point it is good to recognize that relying on your ceiling light to light your closet usually results in fumbling to find anything in the morning. I would recommend at least two to three different kinds of lights in your room: one overhead as a ceiling light or fan, a table lamp, and one in the closet as well when you want to get dressed but don't want to wake your significant other.

Use LED lights

This one seems self-serving, and maybe it is to some extent. But really, why not spend a penny or two more to save 1,000 times that over the lifetime of the bulb? I just installed brand new LED lightings in my home, and in addition to looking much better and producing better quality light, they also save me money every month. When choosing lighting for your bedroom, treat yourself to lighting that won't burn out anytime soon.

Consider Battery Operated LED Lighting

Every year, technology continues to evolve with more advanced products making an appearance on store shelves and online listings, and battery operated LED lights are just one of the many life-improving inventions created recently. Not only are they affordable, but the ones from Mr. Beams also last up to a year on a single batch of batteries. For less than a fancy drink from Starbucks, you can light your closet, hallway, or even multiple rooms for a whole year and not use one volt of electricity!
