HARD WIRED BEDSIDE LIGHTS
Sometimes you just want to put more on your bedside table than a scented candle and a photo of your nearest and dearest. Eliminating your bedside lamp by adding a built-in light is a great way to free up some space and turn your bedroom one step closer to a resort-like haven.
Adding pendant lights does mean cutting a hole in your wall, and will likely require some patching. This is a great time to pick a new paint color, or just touch up the patches with the existing color. If you don't want to touch your walls, however, two ceiling pendants look elegant and don't disturb your walls at all. Crystal gives the most flattering light.
A pair of fixed sconces always look classic flanking a bed. This timeless look is easy to achieve and will compliment almost any decor. If you are on a tight budget, look for a fixture with a switch built in. If not, one can easily be added near your bed. A fabric shade will provide more light and a hard-backed shade will give more light control. The choice is yours.
SWING ARM SCONCE
This is the perfect choice for an avid reader. A metal shade with a covered top offers excellent light control and will make the bottom beam feel brighter than from a more open shade. You will want to install this type of light below your reading eye level to avoid glare.
