If you’re dealing with a small bedroom, you might not have the space for a bedside table. Wall sconces are a major space saver because they remove the need for a bedside table lamp. Wall sconces reduce clutter and free up space for other uses. Two wall sconces on each side of the bed create balance and allow your bed to be the focal point of the room. They are also great sources of task lighting for reading or working in bed.

Sometimes wall sconces aren’t suitable for certain purposes. Desk lamps that offer flexibility and additional features are great for maximizing space. The Pablo Designs Pixo desk lamp has a USB charging port and 360 degree arm and shade rotation.  Other great space savers are desk lamps that clamps right on to the end of a table or desk.

Light colors and soft hues make a room feel brighter and more spacious. White walls create a visual of barely there walls, so the space seems more open and airy.
