Enter bedroom wall sconces. Affixed to the wall beside the bed, sconces take up virtually zero space while giving you plenty of illumination for reading — and they can pack quite a design punch, too. Here are eight bedroom wall lamps perfect for every style.
If you're a self-proclaimed minimalist, an IKEA light fixture might be the perfect bedroom wall sconce for you. It's teeny with clean lines, but swivels so you get optimal reading light. Best of all? It's under $30.
You have modern comforts like electricity in your bedroom. But you can still add all of the charm of a bygone era with a couple of sconces that are inspired by candle-holders — like the one in this hotel room by Workstead. For a similar look, try this brass version from Anthropologie. Or, try your hand at this hack.
Big and Bold
Lights with round, opaque glass shades are in, as demonstrated by this colorful sconce, which comes in green, pink, gray, and yellow. Hang it low next to the bed so it's well within reach, and as a bonus, there's just enough space on its metal shelf to store your phone and watch while you sleep.
Opt for a midcentury look — like the one seen in this bedroom designed by Shea from Studio McGee — with the help of a bedroom wall sconce, so you don't have to take up any room on your nightstand. Or, for a similar fixture, try this alternative from France & Son. Either way, you'll have more space on your bedside table for books.
