What makes a good bedside lamp?

What lamps are good for a bedroom?

The best light bulb for a bedroom is one that sends out around 800 lumens. This is the same as an older lightbulb (incandescent, not LED) of 60 watts. At 800 lumens, the light will be bright enough to read by but won’t be so bright that it makes you too alert that you’ll have a hard time falling asleep.

What size should bedside lamps be?

Assuming that your nightstand is the same height as your mattress (or within a couple of inches), look for a lamp the same height as your nightstand plus an extra 2 or 3 inches. So if your nightstand is 24 inches high, a lamp that is around 27 inches tall will look best.

Are LED lights good for bedrooms?

LED lighting has the ability to cast different tones of light, so you can create more bespoke lighting schemes. This is really useful in the bedroom, as you may need areas where a focused shade of light is required, and other areas where a warmer, welcoming shade of light is more befitting.

How tall should lamps be?

A good rule of thumb when buying a table lamp for an end table is that the combined height of both the lamp and table should not be more or less than 58 to 64 inches high. This rule holds true for all table lamps, floor lamps, or buffet lamps in a room. It helps give the room a cohesive look.
