Table lamps are the common variety of lamps used and seen in most of the households. They are known for providing sufficient light on tables. Here are many reasons why you can buy a table lamp: you can buy it for reading or as a nightstand. You can also buy it for entertainment purposes. Knowing the reason you are buying the lamp will help you in knowing what to look for when it comes to: the lamp size, type of shade and bulb wattage. Table lamps come in all sizes. When it comes to height, most of them range from 25″ to 32″. To buy the right size you need to consider where you will be placing the lamp. For example, if you will be placing it on a delicate or narrow table you should go for a slender lamp. The height of the table also determines the height of the lamp that you should go for. If the table is short, you should go for a longer lamp; however, if the table is tall you should go for a shorter lamp.
If you want the table lamps for decorative purposes you should go for a low wattage bulb. If on the other side you want the lamp for three-way lighting you should go for a high wattage bulb that will provide you with plenty of light.You shouldn’t go for a lamp simply because it provides you with the light that you want-you should also consider the decor and style of your home. As rule of thumb you should ensure that the lamp complements the theme of your room or house.
