Hence, below we have explained some factors that can help you choose the best bedside lamps, living room lamps, and decorative table lamps for different areas of your house.

Factors to Consider while buying table lamp

1.      Décor

The living room lamps are more formal and elegant in nature. With subtle design and average height, these lamps are made to give a statement look to your living area. On the contrary, bedroom lamps are casual. But, these unique table lamps should still match the furniture in the bedroom.

Another major reason for having such a lamp size preference for both living and bedroom is the furniture. The bedroom furniture is often less in height. Hence, the bedside lamp should complement the furnishing around. In the living room, we have centerpieces, hangings, and other elements giving a high-rising look. Here, lamps with more height can be utilized.

3.      Color

The color actually includes the design of the table lamp. The lamps should match the wall colors. If you have wallpapers on the bedside wall, then the lamp can have soothing prints as well. For plain, light colored walls, choose a bright, printed or hand-painted lamp for a contrasting look.
