Right from the beginning of civilization, lamps and lights have played a significant role when it came to household affairs. With the advent of time, lamps have undergone a sea change in their designing patterns and use. Lamps have traveled a long way in beyond just their utility and contributed significantly in adorning the ambience of the room and reflecting individual taste of beauty and perception. Just as all the other decorative products, lamps have also represented the time and taste of the periods in which they were made. Thus, contemporary lamps also reflect the taste and trends of the present age and generations.
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.
There are some interior decorating rules when selecting the right size of lamp shades for your lighting fixtures. Here are some tips when shopping for your lampshades. First, the shade must be no smaller than one-third of the height of the light fixture. Most people tend to buy a lamp shades that are too large for the base thinking bigger is better. Just keep tip number one in mind when you are shopping. Second, the lamp shade must cover the fixture's hardware and should come just up to the top of the lamp base. The best part about buying new lamps is that you can coordinate them throughout your home or you can choose different lamps to create a different look and feel in every room. The selection of floor lamps, table lamps, chandeliers, antique lamps, Tiffany style lamps is simply amazing. Remember to have fun when picking out the perfect fixtures for your home because home decorating should be fun and adventuresome.
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.
