CHOOSE THE PERFECT LAMP FOR ANY ROOM
It’s been said time and time again – a beautiful room can be completely undone if the lighting is done badly. Table and floor lamps normally fall under task lighting, but this is their time to shine and add some extra decorative flair to any space. We have some helpful tips for you:
- YOUR LOUNGE
We spend a lot of time in our living rooms, so a lamp needs to be functional and fit in with the décor of the space. A living room lamp is your chance to get a little creative and think out of the box.
A floor lamp can be a great source of light and it pairs well with a table lamp. Always make sure that you don’t obstruct the line of sight as a living room is a place of conversation and company.
- YOUR BEDROOM
A bedside lamp needs to be smaller than the lamps you use in your living room and they shouldn’t overwhelm your nightstand’s space. Use colours that complement the colour scheme of the room as your bedroom should be a relaxing space.
- YOUR DINING ROOM
A chandelier or a pendant light is a standard in many dining rooms, but don’t rule out a stunning lamp just yet. A lamp or a pair of lamps works beautifully on a sideboard while adding some extra light to your dining room. Try to keep the colours of your lamps as close to the colour of the space as they should not be the focal point.
- YOUR HOME OFFICE
Ditch the age-old idea that you need to have your lamp on your desk. Use a floor lamp in your office and keep your desk as uncluttered as your mind. Find a lamp that is similar in colour to that of your office. This will help keep you focused on the task at hand.
- YOUR KIDDIES BEDROOM
Your little one’s bedroom is a fun, colourful place for them to have fun in and explore their imaginations. You need to keep all of this in mind when you choose a lamp for your little one’s lair. Whether you are choosing a bedside lamp, a night lamp or a floor lamp – try to match it to the accent colours of the room, but don’t go overboard, in the end, your little one needs have fun in their space.
