Bedroom Table Lamps
Bedroom Lamps or Bedside table lamps only need minimal space, but have incredible effects on the look and mood. Most table surfaces of a bedroom are more narrow in depth – somewhere between 16″ and 18″. It’s very important when you are choosing table lamps for your bedroom that the diameter of that lampshade is smaller than the narrowest part of the table on which it is set – so the lampshade doesn’t hang over the tables edge. For 16″ deep tables, you should not have the shade any deeper than 15″. Oval and rectangular shaped shades work best for bedside lamps. You can also find the shade dimensions of the below section of on each one of our product pages.
Tips To Choose A Bedroom Lamp
Most rooms benefit from many sources of light, and most bedrooms are no exception. Sometimes the light is necessary for general light, sometimes it is needed for reading, and often times to create a mood that is romantic. There are several types of light for a bedroom such as dresser lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps bedside lamps, , sconces, and chandeliers. Below are a some tips for choosing different types of lamps for your bedroom.
Bedside Lamps Size
Bedside lamps are generally placed on both sides of your bed. Often times, these lamps match, but they don’t absolutely have to match. Bedside tables are typically 16” to 20” deep, it’s essential to check on the depth of the shade of a lamp that is to be placed there. You should not want a lampshade to extend too far beyond the depth of the table. In many cases you’ll be searching for shades that are somewhere between 10” and 18” in depth – it depends on the depth of your bedside table.
Rectangular or Oval Table lamps often make great bedside lamps because they’re wider and provide the visual needed to balance each side of the bed – but they are sufficiently narrow to comfortably sit on ta bedside table.
Bedside Lamp Height: Another very important point to consider in choosing a bedside lamp is the lamp’s height. If the lamp is too high, you may be looking at a light bulb while you are laying in bed – and that would be a glaring experience. Many bedside tables are approximately 28” to 30” tall. And a bed is usually between 24” and 30” tall. A good height for a bedside lamp typically ranges between 24” to 33” (top of finial).
Sometimes, it is desirable to think taller if you have higher ceilings or lower bedside tables. And, if you have a shade with vertical sides known as a (drum shade), the lamp can be taller because it may hide the light bulb more effectively than a lampshade that has a wider more slanted side (cone shape) – when you’re in a low position looking up at the lampshade.
Like a bedside table, bedroom dressers are generally more narrow. The deepness of the bottom of the shade should generally be a few inches more narrow than the deepness of the dresser. Typically, the tallness of a dresser lamp should be around 27” (top of finial) or less. Lamps that have more narrow bases (body) should be taller and lamps with a wider base would be in a shorter range.
Chandeliers for the Bedroom
You might want to consider looking at our chandeliers for the bedroom. Here are easy rules of thumb for determining the chandelier diameter for the room. Compute the width and length of the room together in feet and then use the inches: For a better example, if you have a bedroom that’s 14′ wide + 16′ deep = 30′. The chandelier diameter would be approximately 30”. Although, for a bedroom, you might want to go smaller. Also, the bedroom chandelier should hang no lower than 6′-8” from the floors surface, if you will be walking under it. If you hang a chandelier over a table, then the height should be lower – and the overall diameter more narrow.
