Finding the Right Height for a Nightstand and Lamp

Finding the Right Height for a Nightstand and Lamp First, your nightstand should be about the same height as the top of your mattress, give or take a few inches. Ideally, err on the higher side. Then, when choosing a lamp, you want the bottom of the shade to be about even with your chin level when sitting up in bed. That provides ideal reading and task light without glaring in your eyes.
