There are three options to consider for beside lamps. The most frequently used bedside lighting are table lamps since they can plug into outlets nearby. Wall mounted and pendant lights are less often used but the best option if budget permits.

Down-lights and halogen wall sconces can often provide ambient lighting while chandeliers, floor lamps, wall sconces and table lamps will provide accent light.
