Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps of course vary in size shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room’s interior.
Things not to overlook - Prior to buying a lamp whether it is desk lamps or table lamps you should think about the functionality of the lamps. In most of the cases people overlook or ignore the usage of energy while selecting lamps for their home. If you buy lamps with high wattage then you will have to bear the burden on huge electricity bills. Nowadays you can also find lamps that come with an adjustable wattage. Some of the other points that you should bear in mind is that oversized shades can provide diffused and a wider glow whereas swing arm lamps are suitable for reading. Keep an eye on the price tag as well.
To avoid buyer’s remorse you’ll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You’ll also want to consider where you’ll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
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.
Different Types of Lamps - 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.
