Bringing the Spark Back Into the Bedroom: 3 Electrical Tips That Will Help Set the Right Mood and Environment

If the spark has died in your marriage and if you and your spouse are amongst the 15% to 20% of Australian couples who have sex fewer than 10 times a year, it's time to take matters in your own hands. While there are many ways that you can bring some spark back into the marriage, one of the first places to start is in the bedroom. Set the right mood for a more romantic relationship by having the right type of lighting. Here are 3 tips you should consider.

Opt for Warm Lighting to Set the Mood

While you might want to highlight just how beautiful the furniture inside the bedroom is, white lights are not the best choice for creating a romantic environment. You want to create a more sultry type of atmosphere by replacing harsh white light bulbs with soft pink ones. Electrical contractors can help you determine which light bulbs are best suited for your home and can help you find energy efficient ones that are compatible with the electric wiring of your home.

Install Dimmers for a More Romantic Vibe

Once again, nothing kills the mood more than harsh, bright lights. Instead, you want to set an environment and atmosphere that mimics sunsets, sunrises and even cozy moments spent in front of a fireplace. You don't have to necessarily give up the bright lights that you've always loved. Instead, have an electrical contractor install dimmers in the bedroom so that you can easily control the brightness of the lights.

Create Focal Points to Highlight Different Aspects of the Bedroom

Another way to create a more sensual environment is to use lights to highlight focal points in the bedroom. This means that you might have to change up the electric wiring of the room in order to have ceiling lights or outlets in specific areas of the room. Install lights that will highlight the bed or some decorative portion of the room that incites a more romantic atmosphere.


Changing up the atmosphere and environment inside your bedroom can do wonders for your marriage and bring back the spark that you and your spouse have both been craving. You'd be surprised at just how big of a difference the right type of lighting can make. Electrical contractors can help you make the modifications necessary based on the type of wiring and circuitry that is already present and installed.
