Tips on How to Choose Bedside Table Lamps

Picture this. You booked an accommodation and looking forward to a good night rest. You spent the whole day out and about and you need to unwind so badly. You prepare for bed and before laying on the bed, you wish to create a relaxing atmosphere by turning off the main light and turning on the bedside lamp. And then to your surprise, there was none provided. It is either the bright and glaring ceiling light or pitch black nothingness. You can no longer have your smooth transition to a restful sleep. This is certainly not something you want your guests to experience. Hence, it is imperative that you supply bedside lamps in your vacation rental’s bedroom.

Other than making the bedroom cozier at night, adding bedside lamps is the easiest way to enhance the décor and feel of the bedroom. You can pretty much choose the simplest bed and nightstands and let the bedside lamps do the talking.

Here are the top tips on how to choose bedside table lamps:

Consider the interior design of the bedroom

Will the interior décor of the room allow a beautiful table lamp shine? Or perhaps, small bedside lamps are more suitable? Before you choose a bedside lamp design, think of what aesthetic purpose you want it to serve. There is no need to splurge on a designer lamp if the design does not call for it.

Matched or mismatched?

Who says bedside lamps need to be matching all the time? Another design trick that you can employ is to choose two complimenting beautiful bedside lamps. They can have different heights or different shapes, or simply even just different colors.

How much space can the base occupy?

Are the nightstands roomy enough to allow a bedside lamp with a big base to be displayed? Bedside lamps with bold and bulky bases would be great for spacious bedside tables. However, if space is limited, opt for narrower bases and choose a wider lampshade instead.

Can you incorporate a quirky designer lamp?

If budget is not an issue and if the overall décor of the room calls for more discerning accessories, find a quirky designer lamp that will enhance the look of your bedroom a hundredfold.
