    One of the things that makes decorating at home so much fun is that there's just so much for us to do. There are color choices to be made, furniture to select and accessories to pick out for that perfect finishing touch. But even with so many elements in our décor competing for our attention, it's important to keep an eye on those small details that we might otherwise overlook. Sometimes they make all the difference.

    Bedside lamps are such an essential part of our daily – or rather nightly – lives that they may not be our first thought when planning out our upcoming bedroom makeover. But maybe they should be. If you're planning a bedroom update that won't require you to renovate the entire room, small accessories like bedside tables are the best place to start. Inexpensive and easy to move, these are the perfect pieces to switch out or upgrade for a new look. Luckily, there are more than a few designers who agree with us about the power of a bedside table, so there are plenty of options when looking for a lamp that will have a big impact on your room, while still fitting on your bedside table.
