Table lamps can be a decorative and practical piece of décor accessory. They are usually placed in the living room but can bring incredible charm into your study or dining area as well. There are many different types of table lamps, including both modern and traditional designs.
However, before you buy any lamp, you may want to make sure it goes well with your décor. There are also many other factors to consider that we will cover in detail in this guide.
How to Get the Right Table Lamp Height and Width?
The height of your lamp will have a significant effect on its decorating value. The most important thing is to make sure the height is properly scaled to the room.
This will make it look better and it also ensures the light produced by the lamp is scattered evenly across the entire space. Most table lamps measure between 24 and 31 inches. As you pick the lamp, it’s advisable to consider the eye level rule. In other words, the bottom of the shade should perfectly align with your eye level. This ensures the light is not directly shining on your eyes, which makes everything comfortable.
It is also important to consider the lamp’s width. The first thing is to decide where the lamp will be placed. If you are planning to put it on an end table in the living room or a dresser in the bedroom, measure them and get the right dimensions.
Compare those dimensions to the widest part of your table lamp. The golden rule is to make sure that the lamp is not wider than the table it’s going to be placed on. Make sure there is enough space around the lamp for your glasses, coffee, or even your book.
