bed against wall or in right direction?!
I should have asked this weeks ago as I have to decide FINAL lighting early tomorrow morning.
We are having a new house built and I am on my final lighting for the electricians.
I am having trouble telling them where to put the bedroom lighting because I don't know where to put the bed.
The house is well designed, and there is a clear wall in the room for the bed that has perfect feng shu with the door and the closets and enough room, and is clearly the place to put the bed. The problem is, my husband and I both prefer to sleep with our heads to the north. The way the master bedroom is, with our bed that way our heads would face south/southwest. Husband and I both feel strange in that sleeping position almost like we are upside down . . . .
So we had thought it would be okay anyway so we told them a nice lighting design based on our bed top being where the house was designed for it to go and not more north.
But now we are really thinking we want our head north (it will be northeast but more comfortable than the southwest way)
so anyway- if we put our brd north, because there is the closet behind it and then the door, our head will not be against the wall. We would have a headboard, and then a space then the closet then the door above our heads. And we would be looking straight out the two front windows in our bedroom. (no other windows in it).
So now we have to tell the elctricians tomorrow early morning the final lighting plan for the room.
I know I don't want a light over the bed so don't want to cnter the light. I wanted it over head just past the foot of the bed, and two sconces on the side walls.
Now if we design our head to go north, the light will have to go between the two windows and generally if we add sconces it will be choppy.
And then the main other thing is our head won't be against the wall!
So how do I design it?
There is also an extra bedroom which we could alternately use (smaller though) which I have now designed with a center overhead light as I was gonna use it as a yoga room/ quiet room. not sleeping room.
We could use that for sleeping and have our head on a wall and somewhat north.
But to allow for that possibility I would have to move the light from the center of the ceiling.
So basically I have two rooms I have to say by tomorrow by and I still don't know how they will be used and if I should design them to be flexible or just decide now and choose something?
