Choosing Bedroom Lamps and Lighting

Venezia 2-piece Table Lamp SetWhen choosing bedside table lamps, its always best to choose one that you can turn off when laying down.  We’ve all had to act as contortionist from time to time but by selecting carefully we can avoid it on a daily basis.  Its also good to buy lamps such that the light will be suitable when propped in bed with a book.  I have an overhead chandelier with a dimmer in my room, but if I didn’t, I probably would have put pendant lights in.  I chose a style similar to this Venezia 2-piece Table Lamp Set, with pretty crystal bases and classic yet modern shaped white shades.

The polished nickel is very pretty, and the tall lamps would be nice for reading in bed, and have a three way switch for when dimmer lighting is desired. These are very elegant lamps and would bring beauty to any stylish bedroom. Dimensions: 26.80″ h x 14.00″ w (shade) x 14.00″ l.

Kenroy Home Simplicity Wall Swng Arm Lamps come in Matte Black, another popular lighting trend, and make it easy for you to direct light where you want it. The multi-swivel construction allows for maximum 26-inch extension from wall for to position light where needed, while its three-way rotary socket switch allows for adjustable light output. Offering a convertible design, the Simplicity can be plugged into the wall but it also easily converts to direct wire installation. It includes a matching wall cord cover for a finished look.

chandelierA great way to update a bedroom is to add a chandelier.  It can easily replace a boring old ceiling fixture, especially if you choose one with a larger base to cover any hole left behind from the old fixture. I’ve replaced many light fixtures myself, they’re easier than you would think (just remember to turn off the main power). Sometimes spending only around $100 can make a really big impact on a room. LightInTheBox Stainless Steel 6-Light Chandelier with K9 Crystal ball Drop would do the job just great.
