When deciding on brightness, people need to figure out what the primary purpose of the lamp will be. This could be mood lighting, reading, decoration, or safety. For decorative lighting, an opaque fabric shade can be chosen. It illuminates the space from ceiling to floor. For reading and other tasks, a translucent lampshade will diffuse light. High quality paper or fabric shades are ideal.
Small lamp shades are needed for the bedroom. Metal shades may be good for reading but can project coldness in a bedroom so the most probably choices are paper and fabric shades. Choose a fixture with a cluster of two bulbs so different wattage may be used. When reading you can use the brighter bulb and when sleeping or relaxing, the dimmer bulb is to be used.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
Most of the time, colors and art details on your furniture and decor are useless without proper lighting. Have you ever wondered why show rooms look so good, or why the bedroom designs at the mall always looked so good? It's because of proper room lighting. You can put two or more lamps in one room; play around with different lamps such as different standard lamps or artichoke lamps. They don't have to all look the same; sometimes a little variety can go a long way.
