Recently a client of mine asked for help in selecting bedside lighting. Her challenges were having lighting that doesn’t interfere so much while the other person sleeping, as well as an easy turn off switch that doesn’t completely involve mauvering around to turn off the light. Looking at pictures for inspiration and concepts, like at Staunton & Henry, the following are some bedroom lighting ideas. In the picture above, a swing sconce can be manauvered to adjust the lighting and the black shade helps to spotlight.
A lamp with a cord that has the on and off switch on is easier to adjust and turn off.
Adjustable task lamps are always great, especially for reading.
Task lamps by the bedside are great for reading.
Having multiple sources of lighting helps create ambience and mood.
Lighting that keeps the glare off the eyes is ideal in a bedroom.
For some sources, I selected some of these lighting options. This World Market lamp is adjustable for reading and has a switch on the base plate.
This task lamp from West Elm has a pull chain for an easy on / off.
A swing arm sconce from Lamps Plus with the switch on the backplate.
Another swing arm sconce option with a larger shade and easy to maneuver handle.
These set of two bronze plug in sconces are a great deal.
As Kitchen Wise of Frisco points out, you can also make use of lighting to make your rooms appear less cluttered. Recessing lights, for instance, helps to take some of the harshness out of a room. You can hide them behind architectural features or simply install them atop your cabinets.
