There are plenty of options to consider with task lighting at the bedside, all of which make reading, working and eating breakfast in bed more manageable.
1. Table lamp
A great option for renters or those not wishing to make any electrical adjustments, the perfect bedside lamp can not only brighten your page, but your decorating scheme. A touch of metallic, a shade upholstered to match your bedlinen or an heirloom piece will all add a touch of décor delight.
2. Pendant lighting
We’ve certainly cottoned on to these for task lighting in the kitchen and dining areas, but have you considered the merits of a pendant suspended over each bedside table for a subtle overhead glow? Depending on your ceiling access, this is usually a simple job for an electrician; add a dimmer and you can adjust the mood to suit.
3. Wall sconces
Enjoying a resurgence in all parts of the home, a wall sconce needs an electrician to install the wiring before the walls are finished and painted, so ideally need to be planned ahead or installed as part of a larger makeover. There are more coming on the market all the time and styles range from delicate fabric shades through brass, porcelain and glass. Tip: measure carefully before installation – for best results position in relation to the bedhead and outside of the immediate bed area.
