Lampshades: For general purpose lighting, it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric, weave, or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand, a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger, more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp.
Before you start shopping for table lamps, make sure you know what you need to get out of them. Are you just looking for a lamp that will look pretty on a table, or is there a practical use for this lamp. It's important that the lamp you choose will do the lighting job you require of it. If it's to be a reading aid, you need to make sure it casts enough light to help you read, not cause you to squint. For many, the best option is to select a lamp that will support a three-way bulb, so you will have a trio of illumination options and can set the wattage to the strength that will best suit individual situations.
Next you need to note the height of the lamp. You don't want it to be so short that it isn't able to appropriately light the area. At the same time, you don't want to have the light so tall that the bulb blinds those sitting near it every time they look towards it. A general rule of thumb is to measure where your ear level would be when sitting or standing by the lamp (whichever would be appropriate). That is the right height for the lamp.
These kinds of lamps can be put anywhere. They can be placed on top of any kind of table, whether an end table or a night stand. Aside from being a source of lighting, wrought iron lamps serve as decorative pieces on any kind of table or shelf. Similarly, rustic lamps have the decor element in them especially over antique wooden tables. With these kinds of lamps around, there is an impression of elegance, style and sophistication that can be easily created. These are kinds of lamps that will not match modern room motif. They are more appropriate for the older and traditional themes that highlight high-priced accessories and room decors.
Decorative lighting is fun too! Just think of the choice you have: table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, sconces to name just a few. And will you choose traditional lighting, all polished brass and Tiffany shades, or contemporary lighting with its glass lamps and polished chrome poised to dethrone the brass and acanthus leaves?
