Bedside Table Lamps Add Function and Style

Blue and White Table LampsNot only are bedside table lamps a great way to see at night, read at your bedside, or wake up to in the morning, they are also great for adding to the décor of a bedroom.  When you go to choose a bedside table lamp, there are few things to consider first. For example, what will you use it for?

Is it there for you to see when you get up in the mornings? Do you like to read by your bed at night before you go to sleep? Do you wake up early and journal to start your day before your partner gets up? What is the style of the room?  What you plan to use the bedside lamp for will help determine which one you choose and why. When it comes to décor, there are many things for which to look.

Functional Needs

In terms of function,  you might want to consider how much light you need and what type of illumination you want. Maybe you want a lamp with adjustable light brightness so you can choose how much light you want at any given time. Maybe you want a reading light with an adjustable head so you can adjust it to where you’re sitting.  The lamp should be positioned so that it is not necessary to get out of bed to turn it off or on.

Design Needs

In terms of decor, when it comes to bedside lamps, matching lamps on both sides of the bed were once the norm. However, many people today are employing a more modern trend of using two different lamps on either side. This is especially popular in double beds where one partner may have one theme on their side of the bed and the other may have something slightly different on their side.  Although not always true, bedside table lamps are generally smaller than the table lamps used for a living room – bedrooms are generally smaller in size and a large table lamp could be overpowering to the space.

There are bedside table lamps made to go with any décor or theme such as Western style, modern, urban, country, contemporary, Oriental and more. With so many great options  to illuminate the home today, it’s possible to find something to fit each and every need you may have. Visit
