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.
Lamps have been an integral part of households from the beginning. Over the course of time, the use of lamps have not just been limited to lighting up the interiors of the house but also have a significant contribution in enhancing the décor of the rooms. Lamps have been one of the most important focal points in arresting the attention of the guests, by their intricate designs and patterns. The lighting materials have also evolved with time, from candles to gas and now electricity. However, there have always been certain unique features attached with every period, reflecting the typical life style of people and the use of lamps. Antique lamps are those, which have gone through the test of time and remind us of the bygone days. These lamps are highly valued and in demand for their vintage appeal.
Antique kerosene lamps are wonderful for decorating your kitchen, especially if you have a country style design. You can put them on your desk or hang one up in the bathroom. They are great for the front porch or to light up the back yard as well. The flicker of a flame adds to the beauty of an antique kerosene lamp, which makes it an excellent choice. These days, this type of lamp is primarily used for camping trips, and you can certainly use it for that. It is nice to add it to your home, however.
For table lamps, a lampshade should be two thirds the height of the base. For floor lamps, follow a four to one ratio. The widest part of the shade should be half an inch wider than the widest part of the base on each side. It should modestly cover the lamps' harp and bulb socket.
