  2. Is there a light in the closet?
  3. Are there individual reading lights on each side of the bed?
  4. Is there an overhead light source?
  5. Do I have enough light to determine the colors of clothing in my drawers?
  6. Do I have a light source near the door?
  7. Have I installed outlets in convenient locations while building/renovating my bedroom?
  8. Can I fill dark corners with portable lighting sources?
  9. Do I have a dimmer installed on the overhead light source?
