Second ask yourself where you plan to use the lamp. If you plan to light a big room with an undecorated wall a small lamp may feel unnecessarily tiny. A tall lamp may be more appropriate. Of course if you would like to place a lamp on top of a bookcase in your study a small lamp may work perfectly. Third ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However oddly-shaped or with protruding angles some lamps` unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
If you have a room where you want to promote a feeling of tranquility a carefully-selected table lamp can achieve this. If you have a game room where you want a lot of lamp-cast light to shine on various sports memorabilia on the walls choosing the right table lamp can easily accomplish this.
Location: The table lamp should not block a view in get in the way of conversation. If a lamp is on a table between a sofa and a chair consider a thin or transparent base so sight lines and conversation flow freely. Height: Most living rooms can handle a lamp that is 26 to 34 inches tall. The hardware should not be visible to someone sitting in a chair. The bottom of the shade should be about even with a person`s cheekbone when sitting on a chair and the light`s beam should fall on the page when reading.
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.
