How often have you stumbled across a side table or a chair at night while going to the washroom due to no night light? Perhaps even more times than you can count!

Nighttime illumination is important for many reasons. Firstly, it is a secure practice to resist the envying eyes of thieves towards your house, secondly, it helps you navigate around the house at night and thirdly, if someone is scared of dark, it keeps them reassured. General night fixtures such as LED Net Circle Suspension to contemporary LED pieces all can be used for the said purpose.

Starting with the general

Bedside lamps are possibly the most ancient fixtures that are used as nighttime illumination. Traditionally, large lamps with diffused and weak light were used but modern bedroom utilize smaller lamps that are aesthetically more pleasing to the eye.

Wattage ratings in the range of 15-25 watts can give just the right amount of light to ease you in to gentle sleep. Modern fixtures such as Champagne Wands 3-Light LED Round Pendant Light give diffused light through their tinted lamp shades which conveniently provides enough luminescence to amble towards the washroom or pick up a jug of water to quench your thirst. We recommend you choose blue, green or pale yellow as the light’s color for bedside lamps because they are cooler thus soothing.
