Home lamps can be a great way to accessorize your home and provide lighting at the same time. The physical appearance of the lamp, the type of light the lamp casts, and where the light is cast, all contribute in creating the room's ambiance. There are many different types of lamps for the home, such as: Table Lamps, Bedside Table Lamps, Buffet Table Lamps, Desk Lamps, Floor Lamps, and Accent Lamps. Regardless of the type, when choosing a lamp, keep in mind location, style, and type of lighting needed.
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.
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.
