A Gold bedside lamp adds a touch of class and opulence to any room. Golden lamps are especially popular in formal rooms like dining halls and living rooms because they’re a statement piece that’ll brighten up the space. They also work well in bedrooms and home offices because they’re stylish and easy to add to your decor.
Style & Color: Get the right lamp for your bedroom
When choosing a gold lamp, keep in mind that it’s best to select one that matches the rest of the room. If the lamp’s color doesn’t match the color of the rest of the room, it will make the room look a bit unfinished and drab. Try to find a lamp that’s in a neutral shade so it will blend in with the rest of the room, but don’t hesitate to have some fun with the shape or style of the lamp itself.
Size: A small gold table lamp is perfect for snug spaces, like along a shelf or small bedside table. If the lamp will be in a large space, such as a living room corner, consider an IKEA decorative table lamp in a larger decorative globe.
Height: For a nightstand lamp to be functional, it should be the right height to allow you to turn the lamp on or off without stepping out of bed or risking injury. It should be about two or three inches higher than your mattress and at a level that won’t cause you to squint.
Lamps with USB charging hubs are a convenient way to charge your phone, tablet or laptop when you’re on the go. Some even have a power outlet so you can charge your alarm clock as well.
The ideal lighting for your bedroom is a mix of overhead and bedside lamps. This can help you balance the amount of light that you need in the room and prevent you from getting too much or too little light. If you have a large mattress, you may want to have two nightstands and choose bedside lamps that are about the same width as the nightstands.
If you have a smaller nightstand, choose a lamp that is slightly wider than the nightstand and the same height as your mattress. This allows you to easily turn the lampshade on or off, but it also gives you better balance when reading in bed or relaxing in front of the television.
Dimmable: When it’s just you reading or going to sleep, it’s a good idea to choose a lamp that isn’t too bright. Many table lamps come with a switch that can be turned to dimmer settings, so you can control the brightness.
Design: A gold table lamp should stand out from the rest of the furniture in your home. It should also have a unique texture or bold lines. Having an industrial or shabby chic design will give it an eye-catching appeal, while a traditional, country style home may benefit from a ginger jar lamp.
