It’s one thing to add some soft lighting to your room at night. It’s another thing to add a glow so different from typical LED plug-in night lights that your room embodies a whole new world. Enter fancy night lights: Their gorgeous yet unobtrusive touches transform your nighttime sanctuary into a room full of subtle glamor. These designs go a step beyond the standard little white light, embracing unique fixtures, smart features, and even color-changing functions for a dreamy ambiance. Find some great fancy night light starting points below.
Fancy night lights perfect for a total room transformation
Whether you use fancy night lights in your bedroom, bathroom, or living room, you’ll see your space in a light equally opulent and soothing. Fancy night lights are also ideal for kids’ rooms, where they quell fears of the dark and set a royal vibe. The below fancy night lights are all perfect examples.
1. Wall night lights with built-in aromatherapy
Some night lights plugged into your wall can also spread a pleasant fragrance through your room. With a simple plug-in, you get both a soft glow and an aroma that instantly transports you to glorious lands far away. Use these fancy night lights in a bedroom, nursery, or bathroom to imbue your space with a low-key yet immersive sense of luxury.
2. Dimmable table lamp with remote control
Although table lamps are perhaps most closely associated with task lighting, dimmable table lamps are great for nighttime as well. They’re also among the fanciest of the models on this list: A big table lamp is a much more sumptuous touch than a tiny LED night light. To properly use a table lamp as a night light, make sure it’s dimmable and remote-controllable. This way, you get the right amount of light (as in, very little) and the ability to adjust it without interrupting your relaxation.
Think about your average night light. You’re probably imagining a tiny lamp glowing in a soft white or yellow hue hovering over a power outlet. These lights can be just what you need for your kids or baby, but as an adult, “fancy” might mean “effects-heavy” or “multi-colored.” BlissLights projectors check these boxes, and you can control their effects and colors right from your phone.
For starters, there’s the Sky Lite 2.0, which washes your room in two-color nebula clouds and glimmering laser stars. The BlissRadia is a great alternative for monochrome lighting in one of millions of colors. It can also emulate how the sky looks from dusk to dawn. You can control both these lights from your phone, giving you full, seamless control of how your room not just looks, but feels.

4. Wall plug light
Picture it: A small wall fixture; a clear, dim Edison bulb; a wire oriented at an artistic, geometric angle. That’s the appeal of using a minimal wall plug light as a fancy night light. The fixture itself makes for great home decor, and the warm glow of the Edison bulb is ideal for nighttime use. Plus, the fixture is a supplement to, not a focal point of, your space, keeping both the decor and the lighting minimal.
5. Wall-mounted charger and night light
Wall sconces, wall lamps, USB-powered devices – they all work great as fancy night lights if you have the right power sources. To keep your setup simple, go for devices that you just plug in rather than wiring directly into your walls. Set them up flanking your bed or at your room’s corners to recast your space as something out of a home decor magazine. And then, use bulbs so dim they give off an after-dark sense of comfort and calm.
6. Themed night lights
Any night light can be fancy if it fits your room or event’s theme. Looking for Christmas-friendly night lights? Then the moving snowmen and Santas of the HolidayPort USB Christmas Light are a low-key, fancy touch like no other. Adding a nocturnal layer to a vintage-themed room? Go thrifting or vintage shopping for night lights that look several decades old. You’ll get just the lighting you need – and no more – while staying on theme.

7. Himalayan salt lamp
Himalayan salt lamps are a beloved light fixture as known for their rocky shape as their modest lighting. Keep one at your bedside to elevate your room with a tiny touch of light that helps your body get ready for sleep. Alternatively, place your salt lamp at the corner of your desk if the nighttime urge to work on crafting projects unexpectedly strikes. No matter where or how you use your salt lamp, one thing’s for sure: It takes your room beyond the everyday to the upscale.
8. Fairy lights
A fairy light display can add a magical touch to your space that helps it transcend the everyday and reach the truly classy. Think about it: What says glamor more than your favorite decor piece surrounded in dreamy lighting? That’s the power of fairy lights as fancy night lighting. They’re both excellent accent lights and just soft enough to peacefully illuminate rooms with all the blinds drawn and doors closed.
9. Motion-activated night light
“Fancy” can apply to both how a night light looks and how it works. A night light can be fancy because it looks like it belongs in the royal palace or because its technology is unlike any other.
The BlissEmber is a great example.
More than an illumination source, the BlissEmber contains a light sensor that emits a gentle glow when it detects motion. This way, you know you’ll make it from your room to the bathroom in the middle of the night without bumping into anything. And as you get ready for bed, you can control the light from your phone or with voice control. With just one touch, you can change your night light’s color and personality – and see your surroundings in a whole new light.
BlissEmber Smart Multicolor Night Light
A guiding light, a source of comfort, a way to transform your space.
Upgrade your night light
Fancy night lights are aesthetically opulent, technologically advanced, or both. They can help you relax or make your way around, and they can give your room a soft glow-up. BlissLights are great examples: You can control their brightness and colors from your phone to easily transform your surroundings at all times of day.
