Bedside Table Lamps
We have a huge range of bedside table lamps available to buy now from Socket Store.
When you're choosing a bedside lamp it helps to consider a few things before you decide what you're going to buy.
Size of the Bedside Lamp
It's important to consider the proportions of the lamp. If your lamp is too large it will overwhelm the room, if it's too small it will get lost within the room.
Proportions of Bedside Light to Bedside Table
As well as the lamp size within the proportions of the room it's important to consider the size of the lamp compared to the size of the bedside table. Sometimes you want to go with an oversized lamp as a statement piece, but often it's about getting the proportion just right for table.
Types of Light Switch
There are a few types of light switch. Some people have a strong preference for one of the other, so don't forget to think about it before purchasing.
An inline switch is a switch within the cable. It is normally a rocker switch that is fixed part-way down the cable.
A rocker switch is a switch that sits at the top of the base of the lamps (just below the light bulb). It is normally hidden underneath the lamp shade.
Certain bedside lamps are touch lamps. These are bedside table lamps, normally metal, that have three stage touch dimming. Each touch of the base of the lamp makes the light slightly brighter. The final touch turns the lamp off.
Lamp and Shade Colours
This is where the fun starts! There are plenty of styles, colours and finishes to choose from, so it's time to dig into the various options to see which would suit your room.
Lamps can be made of many different materials, from glass and metal finishes to porcelain lamps hand made in Portugal.
