Wall mounted bedside lights are becoming more and more popular among people who enjoy reading in bed. These wall mounted bedroom reading lights have advantages that lights that sit on a bedside table simply don’t have.
Why Use Wall Mounted Bedside Lights
First of all, a wall mounted bedside light that is mounted over the headboard of your bed allows the beam of light to shine over your shoulder allowing you to sit up in bed read. A light that sits on the table makes it difficult to see the pages of a book without leaning over or contorting your body in uncomfortable position to clearly see your pages.
Even if that bedside table light is a flexible arm reading light it is difficult to adjust the light so that the beam falls over shoulder, which is the best lighting for reading.
Wall mounted reading lights are mounted higher on the wall, making it possible for the light to shine downward. If you choose wall mounted movable head or flexible arm reading lights you can further adjust the light so that the beam of light highlights the pages of your books exactly where you want it too.
Wall mounted bedside lights come in variety of styles and materials and have a variety of bases including some wooden bases. These lights are designed to fit almost any décor and are perfect for both single beds as well as double, queen or king size beds.
