If small-scale furniture was considered to be the right solution for tight spaces, new rules suggest that few oversized pieces would work better and make the room look stately and ultimately bigger. The view that small rooms should be painted in conventional neutrals is also outdated, new rules suggest embracing “the darker side of decorating” and using bolder colour palettes.

Whether you retire to a small alcove or grand master suite, you probably use your bedroom for more than simply slumber. Dark bedrooms are great for sleeping, but too little light hinders other activities taking place there. Bedroom lighting ranges from basic to bold; dimmed to dramatic. To help you properly light your bedroom, the American Lighting Association offers the following tips:
Be Size Wise
Before buying bedroom lighting, first determine the size of room, says Artcraft vice president Howard Bernstein. Take your room measurements, along with outlet locations and furniture placement to a lighting showroom. The experts there can help you fill in with just the right light.
Consider scale. Bedrooms typically have lower 8 or 9 ft. tall ceilings. Avoid fixtures with longer bodies in favor of shorter or flush-mounted fixtures. “You want a certain level for reading and enough lighting for dressing,” says Bernstein. “You also need light to be high enough to reach all the areas.”
Room to Glow
Decide what you want to do in the room, then choose appropriate lighting. Home computers, sewing machines and reading nooks in the bedroom need directed lighting. Sitting areas beg for softer, shaded fixtures. Vanities demand brighter light.
The Lighter Side
Avoid shades on lamps or lights that are too opaque, otherwise your bedroom will be too dark, say the ALA experts. The fixtures may look nice, but the light will not be as functional. “When buying a table lamp, opt for one with a softly diffused shade,” says Dan Blitzer, ALA continuing education instructor. “Spend a moment to see how you turn it on and off to make sure it is not going to be too difficult to manage when you are in bed.
Location, Location, Location
Don’t install lights directly over the bed. You will tend to look up at them while you are laying in bed. Direct light from overhead is less comfortable than soft light at face level.
More is More
No single source of light is as visually comfortable as a combination of portable lamps and installed lighting. “Too much light in one place is unpleasant and glaring,” says Blitzer. “It’s better to use more light sources of lower wattage.”
In the Mood
“A strong dose of ambience is also important in the bedroom,” says Blitzer, who suggests installing dimmers on lights for altering effect. Softer or colored light bulbs can also change a room’s mood.
Few things are more frustrating that dark closets. “Closets need good light,” says Blitzer. “But be careful not to put a hot light bulb too near delicate clothes.” Attach a closet light 12-inches from the edge of the rod or upper-shelf. Lighting experts favor fluorescent lights because they provide lots of light, are cooler, save energy and can be concealed behind the header of door. If you use a good color tube, you will be better able to tell the color of your clothing.
Portable reading lights set on nightstands offer book lovers flexibility. “The guiding principle in buying reading lamps should be the ability to adjust the light to your taste, either by swiveling or moving its arm,” says Blitzer.” They should also be well-shielded so you don’t see the bulb and you are able to read without bothering your sleeping partner.” Lighting controls located at the middle of the headboard allow you to turn off a snoozing partner’s reading light without disturbing him.
Imagine pushing a bedside button and turning the lights off or on. No problem with high tech lighting controls. “There are gadgets to turn off lights with an infrared remote like you use for your TV,” says Blitzer. “Lighting professionals can help you install these.”
Bedroom Lighting Checklist
To make sure you have proper lighting in your bedroom or master suite, the American Lighting Association suggests asking the following questions. (Tip: You want to be able to answer “yes” to all!)
1. Can I see well enough to get dressed?
2. Is there a light in the closet?
3. Are there individual reading lights on each side of the bed?
4. Is there an overhead light source?
5. Do I have enough light to determine the colors of clothing in my drawers?
6. Do I have a light source near the door?
7. Have I installed outlets in convenient locations while building/renovating my bedroom?
8. Can I fill dark corners with portable lighting sources?
9. Do I have a dimmer installed on the overhead light source?
10. Are there lights at the dressing table to help with makeup?

In accordance with Chinese Horoscope this year is the Year of a Golden, White or Metal Tiger. What are furniture trends for the year of a Tiger?
Metal Tiger likes everything that sparkle. Metallics are hot this year, furniture with metal finishes, mirrored surfaces and metallic accessories are very fashionable this season. Metallic Gray is this year popular neutral colour to showcase the bright furniture. “Do go grey. It is a fabulous neutral that works well with every colour,” says Tamara Robbins Griffith, public relations specialist, IKEA Canada.
Tiger is an Asian animal. Asian style is making a comeback from the oblivion. Japanese Art inspired fabrics, oriental patterns of Kashmiri carpets in contrast with contemporary beds, Asian prints and handiworks are in vogue this year.
Tiger likes clean environment. Eco Friendly furniture and decor is not only fashion, but the need of our times. For nature lovers there are plenty of furniture and decor made of recycled materials available on the market.
Although a solitary animal, Tiger shares his habitat with other animals. Urban modern has African and tribal influences and is clean, natural, and organic. The colours are dark and rich, with hardwoods and faux croc embossing and other safari animal details.
Tiger is an ancient animal and likes luxury. Reinterpreting the past – traditional with a twist will be hot in furniture. The antique furniture of the olden days upholstered in fabric with modern patterns, antique lighting and other accessories are in fashion this year.

Staging of small apartments and houses often present a challenge. Quite often people who live in small condos make rooms to serve double duty – it is customary to place exercise bike in the bedroom or create a home office in the dining area. Although it works well for the homeowners while they live there, it is definitely confusing for prospective buyers who want to see cozy, bright place with well defined living areas and plenty of space to put their own furniture and possessions. In order to present your property in the best possible way, you might need to transform your living space. If your own furniture is not in a top-notch condition and makes your small space look cramped, it is better to rent pieces of appropriate scale and style. At Rent WOW!!! we have an excellent selection of apartment size modern furniture which is stylish and have neutral palette to ensure that it wouldn’t overpower the space. Why not to rent a loveseat and matching armless chairs instead of your own tired large couch that makes your room look outdated? Our glass top coffee and end tables visually occupy less space and work well in a small space – rent them for your living room, add a nice area rug to define conversation area, compact dining set to show potential buyers where to have dinner and entertain their guests and you are all set. Don’t forget about accessories – although it is important for a small space to keep them to a minimum, you still might need an artwork and a plant to help defining a dining space, a nice lamp for a reading area, or a presentable bedding set. You can find these items and much more at our Showroom located at 25 Lesmill Rd. in Toronto; our professional staff will help you to make the right choice. Please visit our website at www.rentwow.ca for more information about our company and to see what we have available for rent.
