Night table lamps is perfect decoration for our bedroom. In addition to being an important decorative element of the bedroom, the bedside lamps provide a necessary lighting to read in bed, to join us to drink water for example, or get up for some reason in the middle of the night without having to go groping. They do not have to be twins on both sides of the bed, nor do they have to be on the bedside table in the traditional way. Each bedside lamp should have its own switch on and off, and optionally each can be accessible from the bed and from near the bedroom door. In addition, switches can be placed to adjust the intensity of light, and sometimes the lamp itself has this function. This can be very useful for people who, due to illness, spend a lot of time in bed and, in addition to reading, also eat or watch television, for example.
In addition, although it is so obvious that it seems to be necessary to say it, it is important that the switches are close to the pillow, that they can be accessed easily, without having to juggle while half asleep. For night table lamps it is better to avoid blue light, since it has been shown to suppress the melatonin production that induces sleep, so at the head of the bed it is preferable to use energy saving incandescent lamps. To read, 40 to 60 watt bulbs are recommended.

If you are a light sleeper, it will be especially important that there is total darkness in the bedroom when the lights are off. The idea is to provide a stratification of the night table lamps, that is, a soft ambient light in the bedroom and a more important light, articulated or not but well placed, in the area of the headboard. To avoid shadows when, in the most usual case, read a book lying on the bed, the lower part of the lamp shade should be located between the head of the reader and the pages of the book, about 20 cm of height with respect to the bed, so we must take into account both the height of the bed and the height of the bedside table and the usual situation of the reader.
