Lighting is an important and impactful part of any room that can make all the difference in your home design. You may be looking for a lamp that will provide the lighting you need for your bedroom as well as compliment your personality and lifestyle. Choosing the right lamp can seem daunting at first but can be quite fun with a few key guidelines. This article discusses what to consider when picking a lamp and provides some information on different types of lamps available today. Let’s take a look at some of the things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect bedroom floor lamp


The height of the lamp should be matched to the dimensions of the room and your needs. It is a good idea to measure the distance between your bed and any table nearby and see what height will suit you best. It’s important to find a lamp that is not overwhelming for your space and existing furniture in terms of height. A good rule of thumb is to choose a floor lamp that is taller than your bed and dressers nearby, but does not go all the way to the ceiling. The height of your floor lamp will impact the overall look as well as the light distribution in your room. Keeping your floor lamp proportional is the key to a seamless and stylish look. 


Style is a major factor in bedroom design and should not be overlooked. Floor lamps provide both accent lighting and personal style, so you want this to be clear in your mind before buying or it could hinder your overall design plan. It is important to find a lamp that fits into your style preferences and is timeless enough that it can adapt as the décor changes over time. While there are many styles for lamp design, some of the most popular floor lamp styles are modern and industrial. It’s important to match the lamp’s style to the rest of your home. If your home is largely inspired by farmhouse and country décor, you’ll want to avoid an industrial style lamp as this will clash styles. 


Lampshades are an important and beautiful part of any lamp. Choosing the perfect shade for your lamp can be a difficult task as there are so many options available to you. The material, color, and shape of your lampshade will impact the overall look of your room in addition to providing soft lighting. If you have been on the search for a specific style lamp but haven’t been able to find one that meets your requirements, consider buying a lampshade separately. Dark lamp shades will let out less light and generally provide a darker look in your room. If your floor lamp will be used as a sole source of light in your room, you may want to opt for a lighter shade to let more light through and better illuminate your room. 


As with any home décor installment, budget can be a main concern when choosing night lamps for bedroom. Size and design matter but it’s important to take your budget into consideration as well. It is highly recommended to shop around and compare prices so you can find the perfect match at the best value for your home. Lamps are also a great way to incorporate DIY design ideas if you are on a budget and looking to get creative. As mentioned before, you can play around with mixing and matching different lamp stands and shades that may not have been paired together before.
