Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room, a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However, if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room, it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general, rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
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.
Color: The color or material of the lamp can also affect a table lamps dominance in a room. When there is greater contrast in the color of the lamp to the color of the walls or room setting, the lamp will be a stronger design element.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamps purpose to provide general area (also called ambient), reading, or accent lighting?
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.
