5 Tips For Buying A Lamp For Any Room
Lamps help to brighten up any room in your home and can also help accessorize areas. They come in many shapes, sizes, and colours to compliment your unique space. But, there are certain things you need to consider before buying one.
Here are 5 tips for buying a lamp for any room in your home.
Look At The Lamp Shade
A lamp shade tends to be the main visual aspect of a lamp. It covers the lightbulb and diffuses the light that is emitted. Make sure you look at the shape, size, material, colour and pattern of the shade. You want to make sure it is going to fit into the space and compliment your room. If you are getting a table lamp, try to make the shade come to eye level when you or guests are seated.
Choose The Right Lamp Type
Lamps come in many forms. There are floor, desk, table, and wall mounted lamps that all function differently and complement areas differently. Before you purchase one, make sure to establish why you want one in the first place. Do you need extra light in a space? Do you want to fill up extra space in a room? Or, do you simply want a different décor? Once this is established, it is easier to decide what lamp is right for you.
Pick The Right Lamp Base
If you have a neutral-toned room, it may be wise to get a glass or neutral coloured lamp base. Or, if you want a pop of colour, you can get a coloured or patterned lamp base. Pay attention to the finishes of the base as well so they complement your space. For example, if you have a wooden coffee table in your living room, you may choose to get a lamp with a wooden base.
