Two things to consider when choosing a suitable table lamp for your bedroom are design and quality of lighting. There's a vast range of lamp designs to choose from to suit any look and feel. If you were to place table lamps into two categories, you would put them under either antique style table lamps and modern style table lamps. Let's now take a look at how you can choose the best table lamps for bedroom decoration.
Antique Style Lamps
Quite commonly, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of 'antique style' table lamps is an old, rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920's. That couldn't be further from the truth as these 'old school' lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right, antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn't leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended). You can feature antique lamps in modern homes but in this case, the lamp would need to be carefully hand picked; The lamp has to work well with the other furniture and the color scheme of the bedroom. Some of the popular types of antique table lamps for bedroom decoration include Japanese, Chinese, English and French styles, with each style dating back to early 19th and 18th centuries. The biggest characteristic of these lamps are that they convey the history and culture of where they came from, which adds personality and elegance to the bedroom.
Modern Style Lamps
While antique style lamps are considered works of art with lots of practicality, the same can be said about a number of modern style lamps out there. Modern style lamps are available everywhere (especially online) but you have to look in the right place for the best ones. Antique lamps may be classy and vintage but modern lamps have developed into very unique works of art and engineering. The design aesthetics can be quite unorthodox yet simple. And the functions and technology that go with it have advanced greatly for ease of use. Whether they're custom-made and manufactured, modern style table lamps have incorporated the use of new materials and new technology. Some of the innovations include the use of different glass materials, metal surfaces and other materials that gives them a unique look. With the inclusion of new technology, they can be leaps and bounds ahead of traditional and antique style lamps in terms of practicality. An example of this is the simple kinesthetic touch technology used in some lamps where a person can simply turn it on and off by tapping anywhere on it's body.
