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.
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 for home office: Just like in your workplace office, you need to have an uncluttered office space for you to work effectively. To have plenty of working space you should place only one lamp on your office table. To maintain a simple look go with lamps that have a simple style. You should also ensure that the lamp compliments the home décor. This is to create a less obstructive and distracting look.
