Do you plan on placing the lamp on the floor or on a table? Answering these questions will help you narrow down the kind of lamp you should buy.

The basic function of a lamp is to illuminate its surroundings. However, there are different levels of illumination for different types of lamps.

Lamps - FAQ’s
How do I choose a lamp for my bedroom?
When choosing a lamp for your bedroom, you should first decide whether you are buying a lamp to enhance the ambience of your room or to perform a task like reading before bedtime. The lamp style and lighting will depend on this. If it is simply to enhance the ambience of the room, dim warm lights in small table lamps that can be kept on your bedside table is the best solution. For a more modern look, you can even find simple, low hanging ceiling lamps or wall mounted lamps. If you are someone who enjoys reading before bedtime, you will need a lamp that allows you to read without having to strain your eyes. You can look for lamps with adjustable necks or adjustable wall mounted lamp options that emit enough light to read. You also have the option of layering lights and adding mood lighting as well as reading lights provided you plan and have enough power connections by your bed.
What kind of lamps are in style?
Choosing a lamp is usually based on personal preferences and style, however there are a few lamp models that work beautifully with the décor of most homes while making a stunning style statement.
The tripod lamp: The tripod lamp is one that has been a favorite among interior designers and customers alike. The tripod floor lamp makes a great addition to homes that feature décor that is modern, contemporary, minimal and even industrial inspired. The tripod lamp comes in both floor and table lamp models and the iconic feature of the design is that it is a single lamp shade supported on three legs.
The tree lamp: The tree lamp is a lamp that features a central stand that branches out into multiple lamp shades in different directions. This kind of lamp is a great accent piece to have in any home whether it is as a floor lamp or as a table lamp. It is a décor piece in itself.
The adjustable lamp: These kinds of lamps feature a swing arm design that allows the neck of the lamp to be adjusted to suit your lighting needs. They may be floor lamps or table or desk lamps. This is great as a spot lighting solution.
What lamps give the most light?
The amount of light that a lamp emits depends on the color of the lamp shade, the shape of the lamp shade, the material of the lamp shade and the kind of bulb that can be used in the lamp. If the lamp shade is made of clear glass, it will disperse more light than a lamp that has a tinted black glass shade or one that features a colored or printed linen shade. Similarly, lamp shades with cutwork detailing will disperse light in certain patterns across the room. When it comes to kinds of lighting the most common lights used are either white light or warm light. Warm light is usually used to enhance the ambience of a room while white light is the closest thing to natural light. A floor lamp like a tripod lamp or torch lamp with the shade pointing upwards in a light colored room will light up most of the room due to the reflection of light from the ceiling. Usually, one kind of lamp is not sufficient to illuminate an entire room properly. You will have to opt for different kinds of lamps that are a mix of ambient lighting and task lighting in order to provide sufficient lighting across the room.
What is the best lamp for study room?
The best lamp for a study room should be compact with a neat design that will sit on your table without taking up too much space or compromising your work flow. Be sure to look out for the following when choosing a desk lamp for your study room:
- Quality of light: A desk lamp should provide bright and clear light. Look for LED’s with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) between 85 and 100 in order to see contrast better and true-to-life colors which are especially important if you are into a creative profession. Also pay attention to the warm or cool look of the light. A color temperature of 2700k to 4500k will be ideal.
- Adjustable neck: A desk lamp with an adjustable neck that can be adjusted to direct lighting to where you want without any glare is ideal for a study desk.
- Size: The right size of lamp ensures that you have ample light while working while preventing shadows. A clip on lamp will be best for a small desk and a larger desk should have a lamp with a longer arm that emits light in a wider area.
- The on/off switch: For ease of use and convenience, be mindful of how accessible the on and off switch of your lamp is.
The above tips will help you choose the best lamp for your study room.
