Functionality First: Assess Your Needs

Before considering aesthetics, first, take an inventory of how your bedside lamps will serve your needs: are they for late-night reading sessions, or perhaps setting an uplifting ambiance before sleeping?

  • Task Lighting Vs Ambient Lighting: Task lighting provides focused illumination, perfect for reading or applying makeup. Look for lamps with adjustable shades so you can direct light where it needs to be directed. Ambient lighting on the other hand helps create an ambient ambience; look for lamps with diffused shades to spread softer lighting throughout your space.

  • Dimmable Lamps: Dimmable lamps can be an incredible game-changer. Their ability to adjust brightness according to individual needs creates an ideal atmosphere for reading books or relaxing before bed.
  • Number of Lamps: Your choice as to the number and arrangement of lamps depends entirely upon yourself. Two matching lamps on nightstands create an air of harmony and equilibrium while an individual statement lamp adds character and visual interest.

Finding the Right Size Lamp

Once we understand your desired functionality, let’s address size and scale. How tall should a bedroom lamp be? – Here is where measuring nightstands comes into play – that way the perfect nightstand will come into view!

  • Nightstand Measurements: Use a measuring tape and record the dimensions of your nightstand’s height and width to find out its ideal lamp size and achieve an aesthetic balance in terms of size, scale, and style. This will enable you to select an optimal lamp that complements its surroundings perfectly.
  • Lamp Height: As a general guideline, lampshades should sit just beneath eye level when sitting up in bed; this requires lamps between 24-30 inches tall. For optimal scale with tall headboards, choose lamps that are at least 50% shorter.
  • Lamp Width: For optimal results, keep this rule of thumb in mind: lamp base width should ideally equal one-third the width of your nightstand to ensure it matches and compliments it without overwhelming it. Avoid lamps wider than your nightstand to maintain an elegant aesthetic.
