Need help - Pendant Lighting in Bedroom

Posted by raggiemom (My Page) on

I love to sit in bed and read. I have found that most lamps designed for bedside tables are too low to give good lighting to the book. (Maybe the age of my eyes has something to do with that). We stayed at a hotel with small recessed lights above the bed that would shine down perfectly for reading a book. DH was going to put two of them in our bedroom, but when he got up in the attic, for some reason that I didn't understand, he said we couldn't do it. So, I asked him about pendant lights and he said that those would work. Has anyone used or seen pendant lights used in the bedroom? I have to do something since he has already cut the hole in the wall next to the bed for the light switch. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

I've never seen pendent lights above a bed, but there's no reason you can't do it. They also make wall mounted reading lights which is another good option. Google "wall mount reading lights"
