Bedroom Bedside table lamps or Bedroom Lamps take up just a little space, but they provide great ambiance for the look and the mood of your bedroom. Table surfaces in your bedroom are generally more narrow in depth – between 16″ to 18″. Importantly when you are choosing your table lamps for the bedroom ~ width or the diameter of the lampshade should be smaller than the most narrow portion of the table where it sits – so the lampshade should not hang over the tables edge. A 16″ deep bedroom table, the shade should be no deeper than 15″. A rectangle and oval shaped shade works well for bedside lamps. The dimension for each product in our collections are in the description tab on each of our product pages.

Tips for Choosing Bedroom Lamps
Most rooms will 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.
