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.
Among modern lamp styles, materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp's base doesn't jar with the furnishing on which it's resting.
Bedroom lamps: If you don't have overhead lights in your bedroom, use floor lamps. It's also wise that you install bedside lamps. In addition to complimenting the look of the house, also ensure that they are smaller than those in the living room. To avoid the asymmetrical look ensure that the table lamp doesn't overwhelm the nightstand that you place it on.
