Bedside table lamps are a great way to provide you with extra light for reading, ambience, and mood lighting. They are very convenient to operate because they are attached to a cable with a switch. They only illuminate a certain area, which makes them perfect if you don’t want to disturb the person sleeping next to you. With a dim lightbulb, the table lamp is perfect to keep on all night.
Bedside table lamps come in a wide range of styles, colours, designs, and prices that allow you to find one that will fit in with your needs. Zest Lighting’s collection of bedside table lamps is made of premium-quality countertop lights meticulously crafted to meet the needs and demands of our clients. Browse our selection and find the ideal bedside table lamp of your dreams.
A bedside table lamp is a type of lighting fixture that is usually placed on a nightstand or a small table next to the bed. It provides illumination for reading, relaxing, or other activities in the bedroom. Some aspects to consider when selecting your next bedside table lamp are:
Design: Bedside table lamp designs incorporate different shapes and visual elements to match popular interior decor styles, such as modern, mid-century modern, industrial, rustic, etc. Moreover, we recommend that you also consider your bedroom’s current theme (and not just the current fad) to find a bedside table lamp that matches its overall atmosphere.
Structure: Traditional bedside table lamps are composed of a lampshade that covers up the glare of the light bulb and a base that supports it. Nowadays, with the creativity of artisans, many bedside table lamps have forms like tall towers similar to Bratislava Chrome Laser Cut Touch Table Lamp. Some are shaped like a balloon, having no resemblance to traditional table lamps, like the Viking Opal Matt Ribbed Glass Table Lamp or the Replica Foscarini Gregg Table Lamp. In summary, open your eyes to these fascinating yet unconventional table lamps and do not limit yourself to the standard base-and-shade lamp configurations. You’ll never know if they will fit your space unless you see them for yourself.
Size: The size of the lamp should be proportional to the size of the nightstand and the mattress. A rough rule of thumb is that the lamp should be one-third the width of the nightstand and the same height as the nightstand, plus two or three inches. This not only ensures that there are proper styling proportions between your furniture and the lamp but also serves as a safety measure to prevent from accidentally overturning your table lamp.
Shade: If you prefer the common bedside table lamp assembly that consists of a base and a shade, then you must not forget to properly inspect the part that affects the quality and direction of the light. For safety reasons, the height of the shade should be, at maximum, two-thirds the height of the lamp’s body, and the width of the shade should be twice the width of the widest part of the lamp. The shade can also have different colours, patterns, and materials to suit your preference and your bedroom’s ambience.
Switch: The switch of the bedside table lamp should be easy to reach and operate from your bed. Some lamps have switches on the cord, on the base, or on the socket. Some table lamps also have dimmers or touch sensors to adjust the brightness.
These are some of the common points to consider when buying a new bedside table lamp. Other aspects, such as added features and budget, are also noteworthy to ponder upon.
