Choosing a Wall Lamp Over Bed

If your bedroom doesn’t have room for an expansive swing arm lamp, wall mounted lamps can be a stylish alternative. Whether you opt for a single lamp or a pair, there are plenty of styles to choose from, so finding something that’s perfect for your space is easy.

Unlike traditional floor or table lamps, which can take up precious surface area, Lamp24 wall-mounted lights are slim and compact. They’re also available in a range of colors and finishes, so you can find a design that perfectly suits your style. These designs aren’t just for bedrooms either – they’re a great option for living rooms, dining rooms, and office spaces too.

In the bedroom, wall lights add a sophisticated hotel-like feel and can be used to illuminate your favorite books for cozy reading at night or to free up space on your bedside tables for other items. They can also provide dramatic accent lighting for artwork, bookcases, and record collections.

A popular choice for a bedroom is to hang a set of dimmable sconces on either side of the bed. This creates a sense of balance and can make it easier for both people in a shared bedroom to adjust the lighting to their preferences for comfortable reading at night.

When choosing sconces, keep in mind that they should be about a foot apart. This will allow you to easily move your arms while reading and ensure that the light isn’t shining in your eyes. Additionally, make sure the sconces are positioned so that they’re facing upwards. This will create a more comfortable, soft glow, and will prevent your curtains or other surfaces from being illuminated.

If you don’t want to commit to a set of dimmable sconces, a simple plug-in LED tape lighting kit can offer an easy and budget-friendly way to add mood lighting. These strips can be cut to the desired length, and are available in a variety of colors that you can change at the touch of a button.

The best part is that you can choose a color that matches the rest of your bedroom, or go for a bolder statement with an eye-catching shade like this ceramic cylinder one. This dimmable fixture is 9.5” high and would be a beautiful addition to any modern bedroom.

This bedroom features a dainty pendant light that has been transformed into a wall lamp by mounting it to the wall and threading the cable through the tip of the pendant. This allows the pendant to be moved up and down to achieve a different height, as well as rotated to highlight other decorative elements on the wall.

If you’re not keen on having to deal with plugs and wires, or don’t have the space for a full-scale pendant light, a simpler DIY solution might be just as effective. Fix an attractive shelf bracket to your wall and drill a hole in the top to thread the cable through, as seen here. Then, simply wind the cable artfully around the bracket or knot it to suspend the pendant at a different height.
