Bedroom Lamps or Bedroom Bedside table lamps take up little space, but provide an incredible ambiance effect on the look and the mood. Most table surfaces in a bedroom are more narrow in depth – between 16″ to 18″. Most importantly when you are choosing table lamps for the bedroom ~ the width or diameter of the lampshade is generally smaller than the most narrow dimension of the table on which it will sit – so the lampshade will not hang over the table edge. For a 16″ deep bedroom table, you’ll likely want the shade no deeper than 15″. For this reason, rectangle and oval shaped shades work well for bedside lamps. The dimension for each product is in the description tab on each of our product pages.
Bedside lamps set the mood for your bedroom, and choosing the best table lamps for your side tables is vital to the look and feel you are trying to convey. A bedroom lamp for your room that is just right will depend on your personal preferences. You may want to match your bedroom furniture with the lamp, or you may need one that will provide a lot of light for activities such as reading. Before you make your final choice which lamp to get, take a good look at the our list to ensure you get your bedroom lighting that you will love.
Tips for Choosing Bedroom Lamps
Most rooms can benefit from multiple sources of light, and a bedroom is certainly no exception. Sometimes general illumination lighting is needed for specific tasks such as reading, and many times to create a nice romantic mood. There are also many other types of lighting for the bedroom such as bedside lamps, bedroom table lamp sets, bedroom side table lights, bedroom side table lamps, bedroom night table lamps, bedroom end table lamps, bedroom bedside table lamps, dresser lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps, sconces, and chandeliers. Below we describe a few useful tips on how best to choose the different types of lamps for the bedroom.
Bedside Table Lamps Size
Bedside lamps are usually positioned on each sides of the bed. Often matching lamps, but they do not have to match. Since bedside tables are usually 16” to 20” deep, you should check the depth of the lampshade for any lamp that is to be placed here. You will not want a lampshade to extend out beyond the depth of the table edge. In many cases, look for lampshades that are somewhere between 10” and 18” deep – which should depend on the depth of your bedside table.
Rectangle shades on table lamps or oval shades on table lamps make good bedside lamps since they are wider and provide a nice visual needed to anchor the sides of the bed – but narrow enough so they sit comfortably on the bedside table.
Bedside Lamp Height: Another concern when choosing bedside lamps ~ is the lamp’s height. If a lamp is too tall, you may see the bulb while you are laying in bed – and that could be a source of glaring light. Many bedroom tables are about 28” to 30” in height. And beds are generally 24” and 30” in height. The height for bedside lamps will generally range from about 24” to 33” (top of finial).
Occasionally, you can go taller if you have higher ceilings or lower bedside tables. Also, if you have a vertical lampshade with vertical sides like a drum shade, the lamp can be somewhat taller since it can hide the bulb better than a shade can that has wider slanted sides (cone shape) – especially when you are in a low viewing position than that of the lampshade.
Like a bedside table, a bedroom dresser will have a narrow depth. The depth of the base of the lampshade should be a few inches more narrow than the depth of your dresser. More generally, the height of a chosen dresser lamp should be 27” (top of finial) or less. Lamps with more narrow bases (body) will be in the tall range and lamps with a wider base should be in the shorter range.
Chandeliers for the Bedroom
Consider one of our chandeliers for the bedroom. Here is a good rule of thumb for determining the proper diameter of a chandelier for any room. Add length and width of your room together ~ take the measurement of feet and switch it for inches: For example, a bedroom that is 12′ wide +14′ deep = 26′. The chandelier diameter would be approximately 26”. However, with a bedroom chandelier, you may want to choose one a little smaller. The bedroom chandelier should hang no lower than 6′-8” from the floors surface especially if you need to walk under it. If you are choosing a chandelier to hang above a table, then the height should be lower – and diameter should be more narrow.
