What Types of Lamp Sets Should I Look for?
Although ceiling fixtures such as pendants and chandeliers save table surface, they’re not as direct, so you’ll be losing out on brightness (which can be a disadvantage if you’re looking for focus or task lighting). The benefit of living room lamp sets, for example, means you get dual lighting for all-encompassing brightness—this is especially helpful if you need concentrated illumination.
Depending on the degree of brightness and ambiance or mood lighting desired, look at the drum shades, and the wattage of bulbs required for each lamp set. From there, you’ll be able to find the right set that will add form and function to your room.
How do I Match Material and Style of Lamps to my Room?
In any room, lighting, texture, and material is pivotal to nailing style. Matching your lamps all depends on your current decor style, and whether you want the lighting to pop or blend into the space.
If you have a lot of smooth materials, such as polyester and clean finished wood, consider a lamp set with glazed ceramic, or some sort of extra texturing for eye-catching dimension. For a quirky pop of style, opt for an abstract base, with twists and even a metallic or silvertone finish. A pair of lamps against a mirror on a buffet or sideboard would look positively elegant for added dining room lighting. You can never go wrong with neutrals. Keep these points in mind, and you’ll be well on your way to a truly stylish and well-lit space!
What’s the Correct Number to Buy for Different Sized Rooms?
Typically, a rule of thumb for lighting is this: the bigger the room, the more light you need to avoid dark spots from taking over. For living room lighting, you’ll naturally want illumination focused where you might be reading, or working on crafts (often called “task lighting”). A table lamps set of 2 is naturally an ideal match on opposing end tables. Bedroom lighting, however, requires softer light since it’s considered a place of rest.
There’s no right or wrong answer for an exact number of lights! Every space is shaped differently, with varied windows and natural daylight. Take all of these aspects into account, and also evaluate your bulbs—including the watts, and type of bulb (such as warm, cool, or daylight)—to achieve that perfect, chic level of lighting that accommodates all your day-to-day needs.
