To this day, I can’t sleep in total darkness – that childhood fear of monsters has persisted well into my adulting days. If you’re anything like me, you need the security of a bedside lamp or a night light before you can snooze peacefully. That and the fact that they are now available in some wonderfully quirky designs have made shopping for night lamps a fun experience that I look forward to.
It’s vital that night lamps are soft and soothing and promote sound sleep in the bedroom. Make sure to avoid bright, harsh colors like blue light – it will keep you awake longer, and you are going to be tired and cranky the next day. What you need is a soothing lamp that provides enough light to be aware of your surroundings in the dark, but not so bright as to disturb sleep.
Here are five restful night lamps that you can use in your bedroom. They also have aesthetic appeal and help lend a charming vibe to your personal spaces. Take a look below!
1. Quace LED Moon Lamp
This lovely lamp is designed to look like the moon and will emit a soft glow when the lights are off. The lamp is created using innovative 3D printing technology and poly-lactic acid material. PLA is an environment-friendly and non-toxic plastic used as ink in 3D printing. Here it has been expertly crafted to lend authenticity and replicate the moon’s surface and all its dents and craters. Talk about attention to detail! This moon lamp also has a matte finish on the outer surface, so the light it emits is neither too dark nor too bright.
The lamp offers two levels of brightness – a cool white lumens of 6000K and a warm white lumens of 3000K. You can use the inbuilt touch control settings to switch the color ambiance according to your preference. The package also includes a USB charging cable for this rechargeable lamp. It takes 3 hours to reach full charge, and it lasts 12 hours on low brightness, and 4 hours on a complete brightness setting. The aesthetic appeal of this gorgeous lamp makes it suitable not just for the bedroom but also as a decorative piece for your living room, or study.
2. Himalayan Pink Rock Salt Lamp
Himalayan pink salt has been gaining attention for its possible health benefits, and lamps made of pink rock salt are quite popular today. Not to mention, they make a stunning statement piece for your home decor. For authentic Himalayan pink rock salt lamps, the salt is sourced from Khewra salt mines at the foothills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. These lamps work on the theory that salt crystal lamps boost wellness and keep the surrounding air clean, healthy, energetic, and naturally ionized. Now that you’re all caught up let’s talk about this particular piece. It is hand-carved by artisans using Himalayan rock salt that is 250 million years old.
It weighs between 4-5 kgs and is ideal for large bedrooms up to 12 sq meters in size. A cord and two 25-watt Philips bulbs are included in the package. The pink Himalayan rock salt makes the lamp emit soft pink and orange hues – a beautiful effect caused by the inherent concentration of minerals in the salt. The soft light makes this lamp ideal for use even outside the bedroom – in meditation rooms, living rooms, and office spaces. It is also available in smaller sizes for smaller bedrooms and cozier living spaces.
3. Romantic Night Sky Projector Lamp
This romantic night lamp adds a soothing vibe to your bedroom at night. Designed to mimic a starry night sky, the projector lamp floods your room with moonlight, stars, and a crescent moon. You can drift off to dreamland feeling as if you are sleeping in the open, under the sky with twinkling stars shining above you. The lamp works perfectly for kids’ bedrooms, especially if your children are afraid of the dark. It also familiarizes them with knowledge of the universe and astronomy. As for adults, the lamp is equally useful for setting a romantic mood in the bedroom to surprise your beloved.
There are four led bulbs inside the lamp which emit different color lights such as blue, green, red, and warm white. The light emitted is soft and cozy, not harsh or dazzling. Turn your bedroom into a beautiful galaxy with the 360-degree panoramic projection and enjoy a restful night’s sleep. Kids especially will enjoy the effect created on the walls and the ceiling by vivid green, red, blue, and white stars twinkling and swirling all around. The white dome is removable – keep it on for dim lighting when sleeping, or take it off for the clear starry light display, according to your preference.
