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.
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. Color: The color or material of the lamp can also affect a table lamp`s dominance in a room. When there is greater contrast in the color of the lamp to the color of the walls or room setting the lamp will be a stronger design element.
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.
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.
