Bedroom dimmers and lighting controls by Lutron.

The weather is getting cooler and it’s almost time to fall back one hour. Sometimes simply resetting your alarm clock is not the same as resetting your internal clock. Your bedroom lighting plays a big part in maintaining your natural rhythm and regulating your innate alarm clock. If the lighting in your bedroom is not optimal, you may be grouchy in the morning.

For example, if your bedroom windows do not allow enough sunlight to peek into your room in the morning, you may have a more difficult time waking up, because your body won’t recognize that it’s morning.

If you’re tired of downing several cups of coffee to start your day, consider installing LED lighting that can emulate the sunrise with dimming features. By utilizing programmable dimming controls, your body can get the wake-up call it needs when natural sunlight is not available.

Visit our showrooms and speak with a Lighting Professional to learn more about Lighting Controls and LED Lighting for your home.
