Have you ever walked into an otherwise put-together room and something just felt….off? There’s a good chance that it might have been the lighting. Too many homeowners add lamps as an afterthought, not realizing that they’re one of the most important elements in establishing a room’s atmosphere. Not only are they essential in providing the lighting a room needs, but they’re also important accent pieces—really putting the finishing touches on a room’s décor. Picking the right lamp for your room can be tricky, which is why we here at The RoomPlace have a few helpful tips for you.
Complement the Unique Aspects of the Room
You wouldn’t just buy any sofa and put it in your living room, so why do so with a lamp? When picking your new lamp, consider the overall atmosphere you’re going for. Is your décor modern? Elegant? Pick your lamp accordingly.
When choosing a lamp, size is doubly important. Lamp size will affect not only how much light it puts out, but also whether it complements or clashes with the space it occupies. Go too big, and the lamp might overcrowd the table you put it on. Too small, and it might not provide you with the amount of light you need.
Make A Statement
A lamp may be considered an accent piece, but it doesn’t need to be an afterthought. Don’t be afraid to pick a bold, standout lamp and build the room around it. With the right planning, your lamp could very well be the focal point of your living room!
