Choosing The Right Table Lamps

The lamps are a detail that can not miss on your side tables, but it can be difficult to find the right ones. Although many are nice, they must also be the right size and provide the kind of light you need for your activities. When choosing table lamps keep these tips in mind.

Choosing The Right Table Lamps


First choose the style you want for your lamps, since it must be combined with the rest of the decor. While some are more elegant, others are funny. How many lamps do you need? You can use different databases in the same environment if you use the same color and shape on the screen. If the lamp base is colorful, you should include this tone in other details, such as pillows or curtain. Bases wood and metal are more traditional, while the glass are more sophisticated.



You must have several sizes into account when choosing vintage lamp. First, the high total should be the same as the height of the table.

This will make the light this the right level when you’re sitting. Also create balance in space. Take the measurement from the ground to the surface of the table and the lamp is not measured (see screen on more than 1.5 times this number. As for the width, this should be around two smaller than the table surface inches. The lamp should never be wider than the table. If you have children or pets, pick a heavy not easily fall. Before shopping sit on the sofa or chair beside the table, and take measures to ensure that the base of the screen is not at eye level. This way you will not have direct light on your face.

The screen

The screen is another important decision. Many lamps come with their own piece, but you can exchange them if the style or size is not right. The drum – shaped screens combine with most decorating styles and modern look. If the space where you will use needs more lighting , choose a transparent screen that pass light. As for decorative lamps, choose thick screens, where light wrath against the ceiling and floor. Choose the right size if you want to buy a separate. The diameter should not be more or less than two inches high from the base. The top of the screen should be ¾ the height of the base.



Now it is time to choose the right bulbs. Think about the use of the lamp. Will you need to add more light to the environment? To read or work? Is it only is a decorative detail? Although the screen influence the type of light bulbs should be adequate. If you need enough light I recommend the LED bulbs, as they last years and provide a white light. In case of decorative lamps you can use regular bulbs, but always keep several extra home because the turn on and off the lamps will need to replace them more often.
