10 ways to amp up your bedroom lighting

1. Choose a nice lampshade

Lampshades, unlike many other decorative lights, are a good source to light up a room. More light would be distributed into the room if you use a light lampshade, while darker shades will control the light making it shine above and below the lamp. So if you want the lamp to be a big source of light in your room then you can choose the traditionally lighter lampshades but if you only want the lamp to contribute to the overall look and aesthetic of the space then you can choose darker lampshades.

2. Introduce pendant lights to your room

Pendant lights are a great way to save some floor space and can be a very stylish addition to your room. You can use pendant lights next to your bed instead of bedside lamps which not only looks great but also saves some space while doing that.
