How to Choose a Table Lamp for the Bedroom

The bedroom is the place where you find your solitude after a long stressful day of work. That is why it is important for the bedroom to have the correct lighting in order to create the perfect ambience that will help you to put your body and mind at peace. By following these simple tips, you can choose the right bedroom table lamp to create the same effect.

First of all, you need to look at the type of bedroom the table lighting fixture is going to be placed in. There are basically two distinctions to be made here, that is between an adult bedroom and a kid’s bedroom. This then concerns both the style of the room and the size of the bed. If your room is meant for an adult, then it will be most likely to have a larger king or queen sized bed. If this is so, you will need to get a lamp that is bigger to complement the size of your bed. On the other hand, a child’s room will usually have a single bed, so you will only need to get one that is smaller. The style of the room-modern, traditional, contemporary, etc- also affects the type of lighting fixture that should be used.

Secondly, you need to look at the size of the table lamp. You can determine the correct size by looking at the night stand where it will be placed upon. A simple rule to follow is this: get a lamp that stands just at the same level as your bed head or one that falls just below it. Also, if you are more of a reading-before-bed person, you need to get a larger lampshade so that your eyes will not have to squint. The size of the table light should not also be too big, because chances are you are going to want to place other items on the night stand too.

Lastly, you need to look at the positioning of the table light on the nightstand. Another simple rule to follow is to just place it closer to the wall so that you will have more space to put your alarm clock, photo frames and other items. You will also need to consider the movement your body will most likely make to avoid you from knocking the lamp down and breaking it. For this reason, it is also best to get a table light that has a slightly heavier base. With the right table lamp, you can create the right ambience to the peaceful sanctuary that is the bedroom.
