    what is the correct position for a bedroom light? is it as central as posible or is it slightly back or toward the window?

    There's no correct position, only the position which suits your needs. My preference is central but years ago they used to position them closer to the window to reduce shadows.

    ok cheers, going to position it central, just recall someone saying about the window so you are not illuminated

    Yeah, rewired a lot of older houses with the bedroom lights alot nearer the window than off center, back in the days when people cared about modesty!!
