When it comes to lights in your homes, overheads might not be enough. A beautiful lamp in your home can be stunning and extremely helpful when it comes to shedding a little more light in an otherwise dim room. But with so many different lamp styles out there, you have a lot to choose from! Here are just a few of our favorite lamp styles for your home.
Table lamps are those small enough to sit on a tabletop. These are generally used as reading lights or accent lights. There are several versions of table lamps, including a piano lamp (more commonly seen on desks these days) and a buffet lamp (a taller, more slender version.) There’s also the Aladdin lamp, which you can read all about here.
Table lamps are great because they’re compact and small. They make great decor pieces as well as small spot lights for your home. You can match them to your home effortlessly by choosing a fun base or neutral shade.
Floor lamps, of course, sit on the floor. These are usually very tall and cast more light than table lamps. These can come in various styles, including a tree (with multiple bulbs going up the base) and torchiere (that has the shade sitting upward to project more light.)
Floor lamps are perfect when you need extra light or have a space to fill. Becuase these take up a much larger area than table lamps, they can end up being statement pieces or the item that brings the rest of your room together.
Depending on your home’s setup and where you might want a little more light, either lamp style could be right for you. The best part is that these are only basic designs and each type has many more styles to choose from.
