Tips for Finding the Best Bedside Lamp

Placing a new bedside lamp should be one really effective way to brighten up your bedroom. While only suitable one can do this thus we need check something before purchasing.
First determine what their purpose is:
Reading – Task lighting enhances bedtime reading and journal writing. When sitting up in bed, the bottom of the lamp shade should reach eye level, with the light shining on your lap, not your eyes.
Decoration – Not everyone reads in bed so if illumination is decorative, an accent lamp of any height that looks harmonious in scale to the bedside table or bed will be appropriate.
Having determined the purpose here are a few things to consider:
Balance: remember that to achieve balance in a large bedroom you need to use a large bedside lamp. The opposite applies in smaller rooms; a small lamp will give a cosy, warm feel whereas a large lamp will overwhelm the room.
Height – The height of the lamp is as important as where the light shines. If your bedside table is 22 to 26 inches tall, choose a bedside lamp 24 to 28 inches tall; while bedside tables around 18 to 20 inches will require a taller lamp to compensate.
Lamps can provide extra lights and will improve the overall appearance and atmosphere of your room. Be creative and carefully when shopping.
