Find what you need most
Firstly, you need to decide what is the purpose of your table light. Do you need the right illumination for reading a book or are you looking for something modern and unique that might caracterise your room such as hand-made lamps?
Choose the space
Deciding where you will place your future table light will guide you in the choice of your bedroom lighting. For example, lamps with narrow bases are perfect if you want to reserve space on your bedside table also for some books, a cup of tea and maybe a clock. On the contrary, if you prefer to have more light, you can opt for a wider lamp.
Your table light should match the rest of your bedroom. Dark-coloured lamp are perfect for bedrooms with darker wood or stained wood forniture, while bright coloured lamps fit more in white bedroom, especially if they are matched with the bedding.
Think about the style you want for your bedroom. Look for modern lighting if you tend to prefer modern interiors and for wood if you have a weakness for more rustic and country furniture. Don’t forget that Victorian baroque furniture is normally in metal.
What is the lighting effect perfect for your bedroom? Keep in mind that fluorescent bulbs normally are brighter than incandescent bulbs, while soft white light bulbs have a more muted effect.
