First, ask yourself if you are only person that will be using the lamp on a daily basis and if you will use it often. A lamp must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. If you plan to do a lot of reading at a table in your home office, you may need a stronger light from a short lamp. Alternatively, if you want to create a warm mood in your living room, a softer light from a tall lamp will be more effective. Further, your office may need a lamp that is short, casts a lot of light and doesnt attract unnecessary attention to itself.
One part lighting and one part sculpture, the table lamp is an important design element in any room. Table lamps can affect the entire tone of a room, from bright and cheery to dimly-lit and mysterious. Lighting can change the entire ambiance of a room. Following are a few tips to think about when choosing a table lamp for your home or office.
Questions To Consider When Choosing A Table Lamp. Table lamps are available in all shapes and sizes. Some cast more light than others. Some cast softer light than others. Some are tall while others are short. This variety allows you complete flexibility when choosing a lamp for your home or office. Much of your decision will depend upon who will use the table lamp, what mood you would like to promote and your personal decorative tastes.
Bulk: If the table lamp needs to assist in visually anchoring an area - then a lamp with more bulk or visual weight such as a pottery jar lamp may be the most appropriate. Table lamps should not compete with the overall design of the room - rather compliment it.
Making The Right Decision. There are many lamps of every style that will perform whatever function you need them to perform. Often when decorating, you will feel an impulse to buy an item that you think would look perfect. However, you will live with your purchase for many years. Take your time in selecting a good lamp. Consider who will it on a daily basis. If your family will see it, get their input. Know what you need the lamp to do for you. Know where you plan to use it. Consider the materials out of which the lamp is constructed.
