I love the sense of style that a lamp brings to a room. An elegant floor lamp adds class to a room giving it a welcoming vibe and a sense of rest. Stylish lamp shades also add color and vigour to the ambience of a room lifting it out of its beige funk. I also love the variety that lamps and their shades bring to a house. It's simply amazing the range of lamps and lamp shades you can buy today. It appears to me to be an explosion of creativity.
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.
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.
