How To Decorate Your Bedroom With Lights! - Articles Surfing
Consider the absolute fact that the bedroom contains more than a bed, and that people need the bedroom for a variety of daily, functional tasks in addition to the obviously utility of a place to sleep. Bedroom lighting needs to compliment and facilitate these tasks to be truly effective. It must also at the same time always maintain a high level of decorative sophistication, as bedroom lighting represents a certain sense of separation from the rest of the home in terms of d'cor and atmosphere. Even smaller homes on today's market differentiate master bedrooms from guest bedrooms, so the task of residential bedroom lighting becomes even more complex when one considers that a master bedroom will have a different type of closet normally, more than likely an adjoining full bath, and even perhaps a connecting patio with a sliding glass door. All of these things influence lighting, and must be taken into careful consideration when planning a design. Guest bedrooms need lighting that is comfortable, warm, and inviting for travelers to feel comfortable and at home. The many tasks such as daily preparation for work in front of full mirrors and armoires requires glare free lighting in the bedroom, and other activities such as laundry and reading need sufficient lumens to prevent strain to the eyes.

Crystal: One simply cannot go wrong with crystal if elegance and spaciousness is the desired effect. Crystal has a unique ability to both scatter and refract light much like a prism.
