Table Lamps for the Modern Home

The modern table lamp is one of the most versatile items that can be bought for the modern home. Table lamps can be simple or complex and come in a variety of styles, shapes, and colors. Able to match with any interior décor choices, the modern table lamp serves as the perfect accent light for larger rooms, a task lamp for work, or a bedside lamp to read by.

Table Lamp Buying Guide

Many rooms of the modern home can benefit from the addition of table lamps. In the bedroom, read in bed or in a nearby lounge chair before turning in for the night. In the living room, accent the lighting near the sectional or seating arrangement with side table lamps.

Table lamps can also be portable and battery-operated. Battery-operated lamps are the perfect choice for a clean look throughout the home as the unsightly view of a cord running along the floor to the wall is a thing of the past. Battery-operated and portable lamps can also be picked up and taken to different rooms whenever the need arises, including the outdoors as long as the location rating is suitable.

Table Lamps in the Bedroom

Perhaps the most common use of the table lamp in the bedroom is by the bedside. A pair of table lamps, one to either side of the bed on matching nightstands creates symmetry and a sense of flow that elevates the appeal of the entire room. A table lamp brings the ideal level of illumination to the bedroom, especially when paired with warm bulbs that help transition the brain and eyes out of sleep mode. Portable lamps are also a great addition to the bedroom because they can be taken at a moment’s notice, whether checking on something across the house or making a midnight bathroom run.

How Tall Should a Bedside Table Lamp Be?

A bedside table lamp should rest at the same height as the mattress, so picking the ideal lamp goes hand in hand with the ideal nightstand. The lamp itself should be between 18-36 inches, but the goal of getting the perfect light for the bedroom is in the shade. If the shade is too low, reading in bed can be awkward while leaning to get to the light. Conversely, a shade too tall can create glare in the eyes. As a general rule, consider table lamps that have a shade at shoulder height for the best experience.

What Size Should a Bedside Lamp Be?

The size of a bedside lamp will depend on the size and needs of the room. Table lamps can blend in with surroundings or make a statement depending on style and size, so it’s important to determine the requirements of the lamp. One way to help determine the size of the lamp is to measure the size of the mattress. A good rule is that a nightstand should be 1/3rd the width of the mattress and the table lamp should then be 1/3rd the width of the nightstand. This spacing allows the table to breathe and be used for other objects and also provides a greater sense of flow throughout the room.

Table Lamps in the Living Room

Whether the living room contains an entire sectional or a simple sofa, end tables with table lamps are important parts of completing the décor. An end table with a side table lamp can benefit as a source of accent light or task light when the other fixtures in the room don’t illuminate the entire space. These table lamps also work well as reading lights while the book is set on a lap or the arm of the couch. Following the same rules as the bedroom, the height of a table lamp on an end table should be around 18-36 inches, with the shade being about shoulder height to prevent awkward angles to read or the possibility of light getting in eyes.

Table Lamps in an Office

Perhaps one of the most common uses for a table lamp is on a desk in an office space. In this setting, table lamps are often considered task lamps because they are used to complete tasks. Whether the task is reading and studying or drawing anything intricate, a task lamp can shed a bright and even light on the task at hand. Some task lamps come with various adjustments such as swingarms, to direct the light to a particular part of the desk.

Table Lamps Outside the Home

Table lamps, like other fixtures, can be used outdoors as long as the location rating is appropriate. For use on an enclosed patio where water won’t directly affect the fixture, a damp rating is fine. For all spaces where water can come in direct contact with the table lamp, ensure it has a wet rating so it does not become damaged.

An outdoor patio or balcony is the perfect space for portable table lamps. These lamps can be battery-operated and can be brought outside and positioned as needed depending on the needs at the time.
