Where should I use table lamp?
Table lamp can be used in any space, though they are most often found in bedrooms, living rooms and home offices next to sofas, chairs or beds. Although they can act as a primary light fixture, they are most often used as supplemental lighting for more detail-oriented tasks. They also work well in hallways, stairwells and near doorways since they ensure no one trips and falls while walking. In the end, lamp placement is a personal preference: They can and should be placed wherever you need extra light.
How many bedside table lamp do I need?
Typically, most rooms need two table lamp, but a larger, open concept space may need many more. To test out your table lamp requirements, turn off your overhead light and turn on all your current lights. Walk around the room and see which corners lack light, and determine whether or not those spaces need coverage. It’s great to have different levels of light, so even if your main fixture covers good ground, you might want an additional just-in-case options too.
How do I determine the right size table lamp?
Pay attention to the height and shade width of potential table lamps: You want it to be both functional and proportional to the room’s decor. When sitting on a table, be sure that the lamp is tall enough to cast light over your shoulder for reading. If it’s more of a decorative piece, you want the height to complement its surrounding furnishings. As for the shade, remember that a narrow brim will cast direct light while a wider one will allow the light to shine on a larger area. Determine where you want the light to reach to decide what’s right for you. In addition, be sure the shade contains the lamp’s bulb and socket since these should not be visible.
What style lamp should I buy?
Since table lights are merely accessories, they should complement your already-there furniture pieces and overall style. Tiffany lamps and pieces with gold or glass bases are often more traditional, while sleek metal or uniquely shaped fixtures are often more trendy and contemporary. If you’re looking for a cheap fix, try swapping out the lamp shade for a bright, patterned alternative. For those that love a mismatched look, use two different options, but be careful: Although it’s great to have variety, they also might clash.
