A wall reading lamp is a convenient form of task lighting designed to provide adequate lighting for reading. A wall mounted reading lamp usually has an adjustable neck or head so that you can direct the light to a more specific area so that the light can best meet your reading needs.
A wall reading lamp can be placed over the head board of your bed, so you can easily read in bed or it can be placed on the wall over a chair you like to read in.
Experts recommend that when reading that the light fall on the pages of your book from over your left shoulder. Lighting the book pages in this way provides you a way to read that reduces the chances of undue eye strain from reading without proper lighting.
Are Wall Reading Lamps Better than Bedside Reading Lights?
Many people wonder whether they should purchase a wall reading lamp or a beside reading lamp. If you do a lot of reading in bed than a wall mounted reading light is probably your best option for the following reasons.
- If you like to sit up in bed while reading, a bedside reading light even one with an adjustable head or neck won’t be able to adjust enough for the light to fall over your shoulder onto your book. A wall mounted reading lamp can be placed so that the light easily falls in the way experts recommend.
- Most bedside tables are relatively small and beside lamps take up a good deal of space on your beside table. By choosing a wall reading light over a bedside light you leave your bedside table clear to place other items such a box of facial tissues, a water glass and other items you need during or use during the night.
- Many wall mounting lights are wired directly into your electric main and doesn’t require you to have a outlet to plug the light into while most bedside lamps plug into an outlet so you need to have one near your bed.
