Lamps do more for your home than simply provide light. They can enhance a room's d?�cor, create a mood, or simply add grace and beauty to any room in your home. Today's contemporary table lamps run the gambit from highly functional to the most exquisite decorative lighting you can imagine. There are so many different styles to choose from in contemporary table lamps that making a decision on which lamp to buy may be more difficult than your think. To make that decision a little simpler here are a few tips on what to consider when choosing decorative lighting for your home.
Function, Atmosphere Or Both
Depending on where you use your contemporary table lamp you may need a lamp that is highly functional such as a curved neck lamp on the stand next to a favorite reading chair. In other cases, you may want a lamp that creates more of an atmosphere such as soft romantic glow in the bedroom while at other times you may need a lamp that serves both purposes at once. Knowing what purpose you want your contemporary table lamp to serve will help you to look for the right lamp for the purpose you need.
Look For a Lamp that enhances your room's d?�cor
As well as having a lamp that suits a set purpose your contemporary table lamp should also fit your room's d?�cor. For example, a gorgeous driftwood lamp may be perfect for that beach house a room with an ocean style d?�cor but will simply detract from the overall effect of an ultra modern living room. While a beautiful bauble chrome lamp may look perfect and even add a touch of chic drama to a modern living room, it will look out of place in a country style kitchen or Victorian dining room. So, make sure when you choose a contemporary table lamp that it going to enhance your d?�cor and not detract from it.
If your home is modern and you are simply not sure what type of contemporary lamp will most suit your home's d?�cor, choose a lamp that is simple yet elegant. Wood, glass, and metallic bases are all great choices and there are many elegant styles available including hourglass shapes, rectangle and tri pod, triangle and round. Use decorative lighting that gives off a soft homey glow for entryways, and dining rooms, and of course that romantic bedroom. If you have a particularly dark corner in a room, then a somewhat brighter light can make the area feel more welcoming and attractive. However, don't choose decorative lighting that makes your home look like an airport runway. Softer light is friendlier and more flattering making everyone feel more comfortable and look more attractive.
