Choosing the Right Table Lamp. 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. Style: Identify the existing style of the room and determine your style objectives. Keep in mind that there is no one "right" table lamp - it is really a matter of what style or mood you want to express - but some choices are certainly better than others.
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.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp`s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient) reading or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
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 doesn`t attract unnecessary attention to itself.
