1. Style a floor lamp in place of a nightstand
2. Hang minimalist sconces
The wall sconces in this bedroom from Chris Loves Julia manage to feel industrial yet sleek and sophisticated all at once. The minimalist design strikes a balance between simple and elegant thanks to the low-profile shade and clean black finish. Recreate this bedroom lighting idea in your own home with traditional nightstands and layered pillows for a dose of warmth and texture.
3. Add a touch of tradition with a globe chandelier
4. Style a task lamp for bedside reading
5. Install pendants over nightstands
6. Adorn walls with globe string lights
Fairy lights might seem at first like boho decor, but these larger, globe string lights lend a decidedly industrial vibe, all while allowing you to keep a touch of whimsy. Take inspiration from this bedroom lighting idea by Lights 4 U and drape a strand in a billowy style above your nightstand and windows.
7. Opt for exposed-bulb fixtures
This bare bones wall sconce from Schoolhouse Electric is as simple as they come, yet the polished gold finish lends a slightly glamorous note to this sunny and cheerful bedroom. Pro Tip: There are plenty of amazing plug-in wall sconces out there to choose from (including this one!), so don't let lack of access to hardwired fixtures become your excuse. Hang yours above your headboard, above your nightstand, or in a quiet reading nook for extra illumination and ambiance.
