A lamp for the dining room can be from 20 to 36 inches in height. Choose a lamp that is just the right height so it would not shine straightly on the diner's eyes. Place a lamp with slim base in the dining room so it will take only less space and leave enough room for food platters, tableware stacks and other stuffs. To provide a romantic glow in the room, you can use a lamp with metallic gold or nickel interior and opaque shade. Bulbs to be used in dining rooms are below 60 Watts; bulbs with silver tips can effectively reduce glare.
Colour choices in lampshades will depend on personal preference, the lamp style and colour, and the decor in the room. Multi-coloured or hand painted lamps should be paired with a muted or single colour shade. For single colour lamps, shades can range from complementary colours to crazy prints.
A lamp's maximum wattage is also important. Typically, a reading lamp should be 150 watts or more. Safety is also a prime concern. Ensure that the bottom edge of the shade hides the lamp's bulb socket when the lamp is seen a few feet away. This will reduce the potential for glare.
It is advised that you choose a lamp of appropriate size. For instance, in a narrow table a small-sized lamp would look best. On the other hand, a bulky table will need to have a larger-sized lamp. It can also help if you take the necessary measurements which can ensure that the height of the lamp will be perfect for the area you are going to place it. Also ensure that the bottom of the shade should be even with your cheekbone when you are sitting on a chair. The light should also fall on the page you are reading.
