Applying LED lighting correctly can give your bedroom a more welcoming and cozy feel. The same is somewhat accurate if the lighting installation is done incorrectly. You can expect inconsistency and some tacky and contrived feel. 

How best can you apply the LED lighting for that look you are yearning for?

A few ways to do so would be placing them behind your monitor, TV, curtains, or headboards. Additionally, you can place them on your shelves in direct view and even on the floor. It all goes down to what you prefer. 

Follow through this article for some LED lights for bedroom ideas. 

Place the lights behind your TV or monitor.

If you are a person who has a workstation in your bedroom, you can create a cozy accent by placing the lighting behind your monitor. While the lighting does not take over your screen's usual light, a great ambiance is created on your workstation. 

You can recreate this look by;

If you have lighting strips cut them to the exact size of your workstation. Use tape to secure them while the back edge faces the wall. When you allow the face of the lighting tape to show, the lighting idea you are looking to get will not suffice. 

Use the LED lighting on your shelves to add some personality.

Neon lighting has been proven to add a bold personality. You can use a different or preferred color of the lights and place them on your bedroom's shelf. You will notice a different feel, like some live atmosphere, every time you access the room and have the LED lighting on. You get various options in terms of design to choose from that match your preferred style. 

One thing to keep in mind to get fantastic results is to stick to the theme of your bedroom. Find lights that go hand in hand with the color on your walls and beddings. Even themes give a more comfortable feel. 

To create this look;

Consider the theme in your bedroom and get LED lights that go hand in hand. While the lights do not have to match the entire theme, they can check your object, such as a green cactus placed on your wardrobe. Keep the lighting just next to the decorative object to enhance the look. 

Use an LED floor lamp for your reading corner.

It is undoubtedly true, and your bedroom will serve as a place for so many activities. You can use your room for work or studies. Get a floor lamp if you intend to study in your room and have an LED lighting idea. The floor lamp enhances the lighting in the specific corner intended for your studies. 

You may also use them in different corners of your room if what you are looking for is a techy and futuristic feature. 

To create this look;

Decide what color of the LED floor lamp you want as they come in different colors and at affordable prices. Some, however, can be customized so you can change them to look how you prefer them to. Purple lights are suitable for activities such as movies and gaming. Slightly brighter lights are better for studies. 

Place it next to your study chair or bed when the fixture is ready. If you do not intend to use them for studies, you can place the lights on different corners. 

Backlight the LED lights behind your curtain

The intention of placing these lights behind your curtains gives your bedroom a hotel feel. To achieve this feel, however, your room must be dark-themed. That includes your curtains to allow some balance in the natural lighting and the LED lights. 

To create this look;

Add a valance to your window that helps to hold the curtain rod. A warm-colored LED strip is an excellent place to start before installing the lights. Having bright themed curtains will easily overpower the LED lighting resulting in no effect being felt. 

Highlight your bed with indirect lighting

Using LED lighting on your bed helps enhance your reading area and gives a natural calming feel to your bedroom. Some LEd features are extraordinarily intense, and having indirect features will significantly help to contain the same. 

To create this look;

Choose fixtures that equal the width of your bed. Let the plywood panel installed beneath the fixture act as the headboard piece. The lighting should match the color of this board to help enhance the feel of your bedroom. 


You can quickly change your bedroom's look and feel by making a small investment in LED lighting. These types of lighting continue to become famous and have grown into strips, light bulbs, and light plucks. Unlike earlier times when you could attach them to furniture only, you can now also connect them to your computers and TV.
