Effective lighting, particularly table lamps, can make such a difference to your home. Changing the atmosphere in your space can be as simple as flicking the switch and turning on a lamp.
A well-placed table lamp can raise the décor of any room. But how do you know which one to choose? And are there any decorating rules to adhere to? A table lamp is a unique décor piece that can enhance the light in the space, as well as create a feeling of intimacy.
Fashion or Function?
Firstly you need to decide on the function of the lamp. Is it going to be used for “task lighting” – something to read or sew by? Or is it more of an accent piece, designed to give a dark corner a warm glow. It’s also important to consider the placement of the lamp and the height of the shade. If your lamp is placed on a table next to a couch or chair, the bottom of the shade should ideally be at eye level.
Time to Make A Statement
One of our favourites is the BIKKI Blue Table Lamp, perfect for the bedside table in a light room with a coastal vibe. If you’re looking to create a luxury feel in a bedroom with light-coloured linen and blue accents then this might be the one for you.
The lampshade has to be just right as well, and it’s best to choose a shade for your table lamp that is not too wide. Just a few centimetres wider than the base is a good idea. And a neutral colour like white or ivory will allow the most light to shine through. Of course if you’re hoping to make a real statement, there’s nothing better than a colourful lampshade. We have a range of bright colours including bonfire, olive, seafoam, and sundial as well as a number of printed designs.
Less is More
You’re not trying to light up the sky or completely light the room – that’s what your ceiling lights are for. Use just one designer lamp if you’re looking to brighten a dark corner and add a cosy glow to the space. If you’re going for a formal look, two matching lamps at either end of a console table is a stylish option. This ensures the lamps are also a feature of the room.
