In addition to ensuring that lamp compliments the look of your house, you also need to consider other factors. One of the factors to consider is the color of the base and broad shade. The two should have the same color or be of complimentary colors.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
When using the lamps remember that you are dealing with electricity; therefore, you should exercise caution. To protect the lampshade from getting burnt ensure that the lampshade is a good distance from the light bulb. Also, ensure that the switch isn't in contact with the bulb. The shape of the lamp is of great importance. For a great look ensure that the shape compliments the look of your house.
