When you are out there with numerous choices of lamps in front of you, make sure that you compare and contrast all the important aspects, to make the bests selection. The profile of the design that you choose will also influence the effect that the lamp creates. You can opt for arc design for contemporary home, or an antique shade for traditional homes. You can also search online and can compare the features easily to select the best one. Some of the common styles that will come your way while browsing include Tiffany, Seventies Retro, Mission, Arts & Crafts, and Late Victorian etc. You can also locate some modern Swedish lamps.
For table lamps, people need to measure the table height and circumference. The lamp should not be more than one and a half times the height of the furnishing it sits on and the lampshade should not overlap the table. Consider the weight of the lamp. Lighter is better for less-travelled spots while heavier and stable is better for high traffic areas and small children.
The following advice has largely dealt with table lamps but what if you want to install a hanging lamp or chandelier, say, in your dining room? Make sure that, whichever style you select, the lamp itself hangs two feet or more above your dining room table or other surface. The last thing you want is your guests to be distracted by a bright beacon during dinner.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
