A bedroom is a place of sanctuary and usually not where décor takes precedence. Simple or uncluttered is the advisable approach especially where space is limited to the bare basics. Nevertheless, there’s still some wiggle room to personalise and add ambience. An effective way to do just that is to pair your bedsides with bedside lamps. Beyond the style element, they offer mood lighting for winding down, the convenience of simply reaching over when it’s lights-out time and the functionality for when you want to read in bed. Given the ever-growing variety of bedside lamps based on size, style and materiality, you are likely to find your perfect pick.
Whether that’s vintage bedside lamps to complement your classic décor or industrial bedside lamps to create an edgy style-statement, the key to getting it right lies in sizing and proportionality. As a general rule of thumb, the shade should be no wider than the shortest side of the bedside. Moreover, the bottom of the shade shouldn’t reach eye level when sitting up in bed, as this would cause discomfort. Read our Bedside Lamps Buying Guide for more in-depth information on size, style and placement. Some modern bedside lamps come with added functional aspects such as a tiltable shade or a dimming switch to adjust lighting as desired. Be it a style-centric accent for ambience or a small bedside lamp for convenience, peruse through our collection to find one that completes your bedroom.
