Sunset lamps have been everywhere on TikTok recently, and it's easy to see why. These mesmeric lights create a calming sunset effect on your wall, perfect for a striking video backdrop or just relaxing sundown vibes even when skies are grey. Sunset lamps offer range of colours; deep red, cheerful yellow, luxurious gold, and even futuristic rainbow shades.


What is a sunset lamp?

Sunset lamps are small tabletop light projectors that produce a range of colour washes on your wall. The most popular is a golden yellow shade akin to a tropical sunset, hence the name.

As sunset lamps (or sunset projectors as they're also called) are easily transportable, you can use them in any room in your home. Why not create a spa-like bathroom with one? Or tie one into the neon decor trend? You can use them outside too, they'd make a great Love Island-style backdrop for evening drinks or a BBQ on the terrace.

Plenty of sunset lamps are affordable, making them a great housewarming gift too, or simply as a treat for yourself.

Sunset lamps may help a little with seasonal affecive disorder too, but investing in a light therapy lamp, or a SAD lamp as they're also called, is recommended.
