Making The Right Decision. There are many lamps of every style that will perform whatever function you need them to perform. Often when decorating, you will feel an impulse to buy an item that you think would look perfect. However, you will live with your purchase for many years. Take your time in selecting a good lamp. Consider who will it on a daily basis. If your family will see it, get their input. Know what you need the lamp to do for you. Know where you plan to use it. Consider the materials out of which the lamp is constructed.
Lampshades: For general purpose lighting, it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric, weave, or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand, a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger, more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp.
Finally, consider how the table lamp is made. The materials used to build it can imply its longevity and durability. Further, certain materials look differently in the light of a store than they may look in the room or office in which you place the lamp.
Bulk: If the table lamp needs to assist in visually anchoring an area - then a lamp with more bulk or visual weight such as a pottery jar lamp may be the most appropriate. Table lamps should not compete with the overall design of the room - rather compliment it.
Weight and Stability: And finally, make sure that there is some weight or other stabilizing feature to the base of the lamp so that is cannot be easily toppled over.
