Since choosing a lamp is not something you often do, it can sometimes be a daunting task when there are so many options on offer. Here are a few tips on how to choose a lamp for any room.
Living room – Look for options like floor lamps, table lamps, and accent lighting. Start off by choosing floor lamps for your main form of ambient light. If you have art or photos on the wall, you can look at accent lighting like wall sconces or spotlights. Ensure you don’t obstruct the line of sight between seats.
Bedroom – Look for options like floor lamps and table lamps. If you don’t have overhead lighting, floor lamps are a great way to provide overall lighting for a bedroom. Bedside lamps are a great way to add soft lighting to a bedroom but remember not to overwhelm your night stand with your lamp. Use accent colors to compliment the bedroom and avoid blending.
Dining room – Look for options like buffet lamps, accent lighting, chandeliers and pendant lights. To add extra light to a dining room consider adding a couple of buffet lamps on either side of your dining space. Look at blending colors and avoid making your lamps the focal point of the room. Your main focus should be the meal on the table and the company around it. Remember that if your lighting is too low from the table, it will be a distraction to those seating at the table.
