Or another alternative of turning the lamps on is leaving the television on but minus the sound. Some people will find it hard to sleep with a light on but not me. Somehow, I find it reassuring if there's a faint light in our room. Good thing that hubby can sleep with that kind of setup because as far as I know, he doesn't want any form of light present when he sleeps.
Even in my grandma's house they too lit up a small desk lamp just to have a light if someone wants to go to the restroom in the middle of the night. Maybe I can give them floor lamps as a present when my aunt finally renovates the house. I'm sure my aunt will love that since she's very particular with the furniture and accessories inside the house.
