1. Layer upThe first thing you need to think about when you’re considering bedroom lighting ideas is the way in which you use the space, and how to vary the illumination for different tasks, such as dressing, reading, waking up and winding down. “The most comfortable spaces in the home are lit in such a way that you can vary the light output,” Neil Tomkinson says.Mike Thorpe agrees and says, “Try to achieve three levels of light – ceiling, wall and floor. This will provide both practical and atmospheric lighting.” Got a pitched or vaulted ceiling? Mike recommends using LED strip lighting, which would be easier to fit than pendants or downlights.Browse wall lights

Simple loft conversion with roof lights If, due to Planning Permission or financial constraints, it’s not possible to create dormers in a tall, narrow loft like this, consider leaving the available roof space as one, open-plan room, rather than dividing it with walls, which could make for a cramped feeling. All you need here (after installing the stairs) is to insulate, refurbish and purchase your roof lights to give yourself a very pleasing room. Where headroom is concerned, every loft will be different, but you’ll probably have good head height in the area along the ridge line in which to walk, and the rest of the space can be used for storage. The costs here are relatively small, as there are no external works required – unless you have to fix a leaking roof, too.
