People choose to have table lamps by their bedsides for many reasons - perhaps they like to read before going to sleep, perhaps they're prone to waking up during the night and need a source of light quickly, or perhaps they just think that the fixture look nice on their bedside tables. It is important to choose a style of lamp that is going to provide you with adequate light for your needs and that fits in with your existing d?�cor. This guide can help you to achieve just that.
There are a number of outlines that you should follow with all your table lamp purchases, regardless of their intended use once in place. The first of these is that you should choose a lamp in a colour that complements the style and d?�cor of the room. The second is that you should take into consideration the size of the room and choose a fixture the fits it accordingly (for example, tall skinny lamps are suited to narrow rooms). The third is that the fixture should complement the existing furniture and fixtures of the room.
There are, however, other outlines to follow when choosing lamps for specific purposes:
If you are choosing a lamp for a child's bedroom, you should keep the personality of your child in mind. By choosing a fixture that is themed (such as pirates or princesses), you will also succeed in adding a touch of excitement and fun to their rooms.
Once your children enter their teenage years, they will be looking for table lamps that are more trendy, whilst still having that young element of fun. In these cases, shiny finishes (like silver and gold) and even beaded shades tend to be the features of choice.
The master bedroom is said to be the heart of a couple's home. Often, these spaces are quite luxurious and are filled with attractive and expensive looking features, so you should choose a lamp accordingly (think rich colours, like browns and golds).
The guest bedroom is another important part of the home; people want to make their guests feel welcome, and should provide a table lamp that will be suitable for a number of applications, including reading, doing crosswords and getting up during the night.
If you have properly selected a table lamp for your bedside, you will find that it meets your needs without issue. If you find that the light from your lamp is too faint to read by or too bright to use in the early hours of the morning, you should look to install some different globes or even a different shade to rectify these problems.
