Do you enjoy reading before you go to bed? What should you do for lighting? We all know that overhead lighting in the bedroom seems harsh and does not provide an inviting glow. And please do not tell me you use the light attached to the fan! For reading, nothing beats a swing arm lamp. You are able to read well into the night without disturbing your partner and you are able to adjust the lamp to your comfort.
Cheap lamps do not swing well and will not last long, so do not even bother. Invest in a decently priced lamp ($150 and up per lamp). Dimmer switches or 3-way switches make them even better. The Classic swing arm lamp has a diffuser (an acrylic disc that sits at the bottom of the shade) which provides soft light that is very comfortable to read by.
For installation swing arm lamp, you have a couple of choices when it comes to installation. You can hire an electrician to hard wire the lamp into the wall at your chosen height. The lamp will appear to float on the wall and you will not see the cord. The other choice is to mount it on the wall with hardware that is usually provided. The cord will hang down and you can hide it by buying a cord cover. They usually have them in the basic finishes (Black, White, and Brass) or you can finish them yourself. If you buy a lamp with a very special finish, you will want to seriously consider hiring an electrician or the effect will be lost with the ugly cord hanging down or a finish on the cover that does not quite match.
