Buying Guide

Vintage milk glass lamps make elegant additions to rooms. While a lamp is often necessary for lighting living spaces, it's better to choose the one that's capable of adding some ambiance to a room where it was previously lacking. An effortless decorating feature like a milk glass lamp can drastically change a room's look and feel. There's a wide variety of milk glass lamps available in the market today, which means you're guaranteed to get the lamp that fits your decorating needs.

Milk glass lamps, as you may already know, are similar to porcelain glass lamps. They may or may not come painted with designs like flowers which provide the vintage pieces with personality and uniqueness. A lot of us think they're out of bounds as these lamps can come with a hefty price tag. Although we won't deny the fact that they can be expensive, that doesn't mean you need to go broke just to get a single vintage milk glass lamp. As a matter of fact, you'll be able to find a lamp that's fitting for your budget, style, and personal preferences.

What you'll find below is a couple of pointers that will help you choose the best milk glass lamp for your home. Check them out!

How are you going to use your milk glass lamp?

To get the best glass lamp for you, you first need to consider how you'll be using it. For instance, you may need it to give you sufficient light when you're reading. If so, then you need a lamp that's wide enough as it'll allow enough light to get diffused over where you plan to sit, relax, and read.

Where to display a vintage milk glass lamp?

After you decide on your new lamp's use, the next thing you need to consider is where you'll place the lamp. It is important that you identify the lamp's placement as it will give you an idea on whether you'll use it as a room's focal point or a light source and accessory that will complement your room's décor.

What size of bulbs are suitable for a milk glass lamp?

If your intention is to install a high wattage bulb, then you need a larger lamp or at least a vintage lamp that comes with a wide top opening to ensure that the heat that's created within the lamp is capable of escaping.

How to measure for a vintage milk glass lamp?

Lastly, you'd have to make sure that your lamp is at the right height and width so the switch and light socket are covered. If this proves to be difficult, you'll need to add a riser or put a harp of a different size. Both will help raise a shade.

Ideally, the shade's height should measure ¾ of the base's height. This means if you have a base that measures in at 24 inches in height, then the shade's height should be 16 inches tall. The width of the shade, on the other hand, should be of the same measurement to the base's diameter.
