MAY 30|4 min read

Looking for a way to wind down at night? Read our guide below to discover the benefits of modern bedside lamps and explore our range of unique lamps.

More than just decor

Lighting can really change the vibe of a room. When your main bedroom light is too bright, but it’s too dark with no light on at all, bedside lamps come in handy. But lamps don’t just have to be functional, we’ve got cool lamps in different colours, textures and sizes to suit any interior design style.

Different to light fixtures that typically hang from the ceiling, bedside lamps can be moved and transported easily, and many bedside lamps have a built-in dimmer switch, allowing you to adjust the brightness of the light output.

Discover how to choose the best bedside lamps for your home in our guide below.

How do I choose a bedside lamp?

Looking for modern bedside lamps but not sure where to start? Whether you’re styling your bedroom, the guest room or a child’s room, we’ve got unique table lamps & cool bedside lamps for every space!

Lamps come in many shapes, sizes and colours, so it can be confusing to know which lamp design is right for you. The first thing to consider is your space. Do you have a bedside table? Is the area between your bed and the wall big enough for a large lampshade?

If you have a nightstand, then a table or desk lamp is right for you. Alternatively, if your lamp is going to be placed on the floor next to your bed, a freestanding lamp design would work best.

The next step is to make sure you have the right sized bulbs for your lights. Be sure to note the differences between LED and incandescent lighting when picking out your bulbs.

Bedside lamps come in a variety of styles, including traditional, modern, and transitional. Try using your lamp as an accent piece in your space to match your bedroom furniture and colour scheme. For example, if you have mostly neutral furniture, with pops of colour around your room, pick a lamp that’s vibrant in colour to match, and let that corner of your room shine. Alternatively, if you have a colourful room, pick out a neutral lamp to add balance and softness.

Why do I need a bedside lamp?

Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night and had to walk around slowly, with your arms outstretched, trying not to run into or trip over anything? We’ve all been there. This is where a bedside lamp comes in handy! With just the flick of a switch, let your lamp light the way.

It’s recommended to avoid bright light two hours before you go to bed so that your body knows it's time for rest. A bedside lamp with a warm, golden light can create a calming and relaxing space for winding down in the evening, ideal for those practicing a nighttime routine or who have trouble sleeping.

Many modern bedside lamps have adjustable arms and swivel heads, allowing you to direct light where you need it – perfect for those who love to stay up late in bed with a good book.

Aside from being functional, lamps add a pop of personality and flair to the corner of your room. Take a look at our collection of cool lamps that’ll be sure to catch your eye.
