Instead of turning on lights at night for water and bathroom breaks, use a simple electric free night light. The dollar stores sell the small solar patio lights that stake into the ground for around $2.50 each. Stake one of those into some houseplants that are in sunny locations, and of an evening, after you turn the house lights off, they will provide enough light for you to be able to see your way to the kitchen without having to turn on the overhead lights that blind you and disturb others. They also work well for people to see, who come in late, after the rest of the house has gone to bed.

Since they are solar, they also work during power outages as well.

My husband got this idea during a summer storm when we lost electrical power. While I was hunting candles, he went outside and brought in a few of our solar lights. It worked wonderfully and we continue to use this idea yet.
