Book Reading Lights in Buyer's Guides

Posted on February 27, 2014 by LampsUSA Experts | 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.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
