The following advice has largely dealt with table lamps but what if you want to install a hanging lamp or chandelier, say, in your dining room? Make sure that, whichever style you select, the lamp itself hangs two feet or more above your dining room table or other surface. The last thing you want is your guests to be distracted by a bright beacon during dinner.
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.
Also I do love the relaxed atmosphere our bedside table lamps bring to the room where like everyone else I spend hours every night. Once again it's the ambient light that gets me! When I'm heading to bed after a long day I don't need bright lights glaring at me. I need rest, peace and calm. A well designed bedside lamp gives me that.
