Book Reading Lights

Posted on June 13, 2015 by Steve Brielmaier | 0 comments

How can you enjoy a great novel when you have sketchy lighting? Book lights are designed to provide a direct source of lighting that allows you to decipher tiny print easily, minus the glare from ordinary lighting fixtures. Whether you’re reading in the living room, at your desk, or in your bed, it’s essential to get yourself a reading light that’s easy on your eyes.

Book lights are important if you want to keep your vision healthy over the years. Position your lamps and other lighting sources in such a way that it reflects directly onto the page without creating shadows. Many lighting fixtures like desk lamps and bedside table lamps are good examples of book lights, while other direct sources of lighting (like pendant lighting) can also work.

Avoid ambient or accent lighting fixtures as reading lights, because their functions are limited to highlighting certain areas of the room for visual appeal, and not so much functionality. Book lights are largely built on performance, and the lighting quality comes first before design or stylish appeal. Many reading lights incorporate LED lighting or LED Lamps, which is a more energy-efficient alternative to ordinary lighting. While these may be on the pricey end, the long-term pay off in bright lights for longer is ultimately worth it.

LampsUSA offers a great selection of book lights that will help you enjoy reading better. Browse through our wide selections and say goodbye to your reading-related headaches, because these book lighting fixtures mean business.

Buyer's Guides - Restoration Style Tips
Restoration Style was derived from Charles II after he was restored to the throne of England in 1660. During this period a big richness was noted in English design, architecture and art. Upon his return from the Netherlands and France he and his followers brought with them the latest European styles. 

Take a trip back to 1920's Venice with delicate milk glass sconces in your powder room, or the regal elegance of an embellished Victorian crystal chandelier in your staircase or foyer. Bring a taste of medieval Europe to your dining room with a dramatic round iron chandelier. Most Vintage style collections span throughout time including ceiling lights, pendants, sconces, chandeliers and bathroom fixtures, as well as floor lamps and table lamps.
