Your Guide to Buying The Best Table Lamps

May 16, 2018 12:30:57 PM EDT

Table lamps are a much-needed fixture in any home. The best part is they are versatile and serve multiple purposes such as a bright (or dim if you prefer) source of light while reading or working, enjoying a quiet drink, or simply relaxing as you listen to music.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="380"]PLC Lighting 2 Light Table Lamp PLC Lighting 2 Light Table Lamp with Satin Nickel Finish[/caption]However, buying the best table lamps isn’t that simple – you need to choose the light fixture so it illuminates the surroundings and looks good with the décor as well. There are several factors to be taken into account – here goes:Lamp HeightOne of the most important aspects, pay attention to it, or else you might end up regretting your choice. Taller table lamps are placed in living areas, while shorter ones are used in bedrooms. The bottom of the shade should be at eye level when you sit next to the lamp, so you can read without having to see the glaring light bulbs.Lamp WidthIf the lamp is going on an end table in the living room or a bedside table, measure the table top and compare it to the diameter of the widest part of the shade. Ideally, the lamp shade shouldn’t be wider than the table it is placed on. Don’t forget to consider the footprint of the base and other items (cup of coffee, water bottle, glasses, etc.) you might want to place on the table.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="349"]2 light table lamp PLC Lighting 2 Light Table Lamp[/caption]Selecting the ShadeWhether you are buying a new shade or replacing an old one, you have to ensure it fits the base and enhances aesthetics too. The width of the shade should be about twice the width of the widest part of the base. Vertically, the shade needs to cover the switch but let a little bit of the neck part of the base show. If you wish to get ambient light in a room, along with bright reading light, it is best to get table lamps that have white or light-colored fabric shades. This is done so diffused light seeps in through the sides, while bright light moves up and bounces off the ceiling for ambient light and light is available from the bottom for reading. If you are going for a darker effect with a dramatic flair, get opaque shades instead. You will generally spot these shades in libraries where the light is focused on a book or work being done near the lamp, but light is not spraying everywhere.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="324"]dainolite 2 light table lamp Dainolite 2 Light Table Lamp[/caption]

Getting More than One Lamp

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="564"] via Pinterest[/caption]This situation might be viewed as a problem, but it is assuredly not so. Creating a unified ambience with multiple lamps is extremely “in” these days. So if there is more than one table lamp in a big room, it is best to opt for different types of bases instead of getting lamps with similar bases. The former invokes more interest and appeal. For better cohesion, you can use shades in same shapes. If you wish to place a couple of lamps on a longer cabinet or table, it is advisable to keep them separated by 2 to 3 feet so the light is distributed in a better way. This arrangement also prevents the lamps from looking clustered.

Decorative

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="450"]8 light table lamp PLC 8 Light Table Lamp[/caption]There is absolutely no doubt about the fact that table lamps serve a decorative purpose as well apart from providing light. Choose a lamp that blends in beautifully with the surroundings of the room, or creates a fascinating contrast. The lamp can be used as a unifier of the room design too by picking up on that color with other décor elements like pillows, drapes, pictures, or furniture.Sprucing Up Your Old Table LampFunctional and decorative elements should definitely be changed if you feel the overall look has become dull and boring. Try installing a new shade for a different look, but don’t forget to check the old shade and see how it sits on the base. This is done so you get a shade that works perfectly with your lamp.  A lot of shades have a spider fitting, which is a little hole in the middle that sits on the top of a harp (the wire piece that goes around the bulb), while another kind of fitting is a shade that sits on hardware attached to the bulb's base. Some smaller lamps have clip-on shades that sit right on the bulb.Select the Right Bulb[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="387"] via pinterest[/caption]Last but not the least, it is best to install an LED bulb that is comparable to a 60 watt regular incandescent, as it produces sufficient lumens output and saves energy at the same time. For better flexibility, opt for a dimmable LED bulb.Ready to go shopping for the best table lamps out there?

The statement 'kitchen is the heart of the home' is absolutely true because it acts as a multi-functional space for many households. Even though the primary purpose of kitchen is cooking and serving foods, the kitchen is the only space where families gather, so proper lighting on this space becomes very imperative to carry out daily tasks and also show-off your kitchen design and culinary creations.If your kitchen doesn't have sufficient lighting, you can use simple methods to bring the much needed natural lighting in the kitchen or consult an architect or interior designer to give you the lighting makeover your kitchen needs.bright kitchen with natural lighting

Ventilation

Proper ventilation is a must for the kitchen and since the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, the ventilation should be good both in the night and as well as in the day. You can install an exhaust fan, a range hood and a ventilation hood.  Ventilation needs to be at least half the amount of natural lighting in a house.

To maximize morning sun rays

The position and size of the windows in the kitchen play a role in the amount of sun rays you get inside. You can place the sink next to a large window so that you can get all the rays when you clean your kitchen items. You also need to build your house in a way that lots of sunrays get into it.

Residential tubular Skylights

This concept works completely on sunlight. In this method, no wiring or stitches are used and you get unlimited sunlight during the day time.  These also don’t contribute to heat loss or gain and there are many models and price ranges available for you to choose from.

Install solar tubes

You can remodel your kitchen by installing solar tubes to bring more natural light .This is one of the most affordable ways to do it and is best suited for homes that have many floors in the house.

Repaint in light colours

You can repaint your kitchen in white or lighter colours. Adding lighting fixtures such as chandeliers, pendants, etc is also good for the kitchen. Use white, grey, blue for better and warmer atmosphere and white is considered the best colour for both lighting and mood.

High windows

Windows placed in the rafters bring a lot of light into the kitchen and are also an architectural delight. Clerestory windows are apt for great lighting and also maintain the privacy needed for the room.

Check wall space

The kitchen needs to have enough wall space for both the storage of materials and for building the kind of windows you desire for your room.

Light shelves

Light shelves are environmental friendly as it reduces the amount of artificial light used. Though light shelves are not suitable for all climates, using it divides the windows between the view-able portion and the part that lets in additional light making the light bounce upward making it easier for daylight to penetrate into the floor plates.

Remove drapery

If you have heavy materials, you can change your window treatment and use lighter materials for allowing sunlight to get into the room. Using materials like cotton and linen are good for better sunlight.  If privacy is not one of your major problems, consider removing all the drapery in your room for better natural lighting in kitchen. Make it a point to open out your curtains for the light to get inside. Small windows are not good enough for natural lighting in kitchens.Even though you have options available to bring in natural lighting into your kitchen , the climate of the place you are living in plays a major role in determining whether it is possible to get the natural lighting in the kitchen. Other factors that decide the natural lighting in the kitchen is also the cost you are willing to spend. You also have to understand that some rooms may remain quite dark even after the re-modelling because of the way it the house is designed.If you need help in kitchen lighting, contact our knowledgeable staff @ (305) 333-8295 (or) Visit our showroom @ 13611 Biscayne Blvd, North Miami Beach, FL 33181 Read More

There is a lot of stir regarding LED lights and how great they are, with thousands of homeowners opting to switch to LED from regular lights. If you have decided to hop on that bandwagon, bear in mind that it will cost you quite a bit, but that is just the initial stage, because over time LED’s are more pocket-friendly as compared to conventional lighting solutions. Moreover, they are versatile – LED lights can be used as replacements for tube lights, bulbs, and outdoor fixtures too.But before you go ahead with the purchase, there are a few LED lighting tips that will help you in this regard:Lumens (not Watts)A common misconception associated with lighting is that wattage indicates how bright the light will be. But wattage is actually a measurement of the energy drawn by the bulb. For traditional incandescent bulbs, the concepts of watts drawn and brightness are often used interchangeably and somewhat accepted, but the same can’t be said so for LEDs.For instance, an LED bulb with comparable brightness to a 60W incandescent is only 8 to 12 watts. To be honest, there isn’t any way to convert incandescent watts to LED watts, which is why lumens is used instead. While shopping for an LED light, always look out for the lumens it produces.ColorYou have really lucked out here because LED bulbs can display a fabulous color range from purple to red, to a spectrum of whites and yellows. Color temperatures are measured in Kelvin (K). Homeowners usually choose between warm white, natural white, and cool white. The first two produces yellowish hues, which resemble those from incandescents, while cool or bright white gives a whiter light that is closer to daylight.The lower the measurement in Kelvin, the yellower the light, so a conventional incandescent is somewhere between 2,700 and 3,500K. A warm yellow light with a color temperature of 3000K is said to be the most comfortable. Cool blue light offers a higher color temperature with a value of around 5000K, which is touted to be more vibrant.Dimmable and Non-Dimmable LEDsThe circuitry of LEDs is slightly different, so they aren’t always compatible with traditional dimming switches. Most of the dimmers that are installed are designed in a way to work with incandescent bulbs. They operate by cutting off the amount of electricity channeled to the bulb – the lesser the electricity that is drawn, the dimmer is the light.This concept won’t work for an LED – in fact, they will flicker, buzz, or simply not function properly. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this issue – buy lights that are compatible with conventional dimmers, or remove your present dimming switch and replace it with an LED compatible dimmer. While dimming the lights is done for mood and ambience, it also saves power consumption and extends the lifespan of the LED.Not Every LED is SameBeware of this very troubling issue! Ever since the awareness regarding energy efficient lighting solutions have grown, LED companies have practically sprung up overnight. They promise the same thing – replacing incandescent bulbs with lights that provide the same level of brightness while using less power. The performance of an LED bulb depends majorly on LED chip. Needless to say, premium grade chips will last longer and tend to deteriorate less over time, when it comes to light output and quality.And therein lies the problem – not all LED bulbs are created equal as you might have noticed. There are loads of LED bulb manufacturers on the market that make tall claims and entice with ridiculously cheap prices, so steer clear from them as you are most likely purchasing an inferior quality product. Always buy from a reputed dealer or manufacturer.Know When to ReplaceJust because you wish to get LED lights for your home, doesn’t mean you go on a shopping frenzy and buy haphazard stuff that ends up being a waste of time and money. It is important to know where or when to replace a light with an equivalent LED – it ensures that lighting needs and aesthetic appeal is maintained. For instance, if you exchange a blown downlight in your living room with an LED, ad leave the rest of the lights as incandescent, it would totally spoil the ambience and look odd. If you are upgrading, then don’t do it in parts – it should be completed as a unit. In case you don’t have the budget for an entire upgrade at once, save up and then do it.LifespanBefore buying an LED bulb, don’t forget to check the lifespan, which is usually denoted in hours. For instance, if the lifespan is marked at 50,000 hours and you use the bulb regularly for 8 hours, it might last for 17 years.These LED buying tips will come in handy – keep them close by so you can consult when purchasing LEDs.Read More

It is easy to transform your space without spending a fortune if you go about it systematically. The right kind of lighting can work wonders and totally change the ambience of any room or area. Pendant lighting not only transforms, but also creates a sense of style in your home.What are pendant lights?Access Lighting Flux Collection 1 Light Pendant in Antique FinishDon’t get misled due to the term “pendant”, as that usually projects an image of a small and obscure fixture in our minds. However, it is nothing but a myth as pendant lights are quite noticeable and make pronounced fashion statements. They are available in various shapes, sizes, colors, and styles, so you are really spoilt for choice.This type of light fixture is mounted to the ceiling and hangs down on a rod or chain (could be more than one). The term originates from the fact that the light is suspended just like a pendant on a necklace. The most basic ones have a single light bulb mounted base up, inside a globe or under an open shade or open reflector. They can be used in kitchens, family rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and even outdoors.Here are 5 tips for a pendant lighting buying guide:Size and ShapeGetting the right size and shape is extremely important. Overly large lights can make the room seem too bright that you have to squint, while extremely dim ones can affect visibility, which is a strict no-no. Moreover, the lights need to match with the depth and character of the room as well.Heightpendant heightThe pendant light fixtures shouldn’t be hung too high as it would show the bulb, while being too low means the view is blocked. If you are installing them in the dining space or kitchen, the rule of thumb is the height should be 30-36” above the height of the counter or table. Another rule to follow is installing the fixtures 60-66” above the floor.Mix and Matchmix and match pendant At times a single light isn’t sufficient, so this is your chance to experiment by mixing different types of pendants to brighten the space. But then again, mixing doesn’t mean you randomly pick out different pendant lights and hang them together. Keep aesthetics and luminescence in mind before selecting.

Get Proper Wattage

Although there is no fixed formula for calculating the wattage of light required for a room, Kichler Lighting has come up with an interesting solution. Multiply the width by the length of the room, and keep the measurement in feet. Afterwards multiply the result by 1.5 to get a general idea about the wattage.FunctionalityWhat are you buying the pendant lighting for? Is it for a decorative purpose or do you want it to be more functional? Or would you prefer something that has both characteristics? Pendant lights can not only improve visual appeal but also provide task, general, and area lighting. How are pendant lights used?As discussed above, there are numerous ways to use pendant fixtures such as general, area, and task lighting. Take a look:

General Lighting

This type of light can be mounted as central fixture in most rooms, while some more can be used in corridors or hallways. The best part is when pendant lighting is used for general purposes; these fixtures are often designed to direct the light upwards onto the ceiling. As that light spreads across the ceiling and is reflected back down, it helps us see more of the room, so visibility is excellent. It gives you a better sense of where the edges and corners are, so you can chalk out movements accordingly.Area LightingThis type of lighting means only a certain part of the room is lit up. It is an addition to the general lighting, but don’t do the whole job themselves. For instance, if you install some fixtures in the centre of a room, along with corner lights, the latter fall into the area lighting category.

Task Lighting

The reason why pendant fixtures are popular as task lighting elements is because it essentially brings the light down from the ceiling and puts it closer to the counter, table, chair, or wherever you need it. They are used abundantly over counters and tables, but can be installed in other areas too. For example if you have limited space on your bedside table, you can get a pendant light installed, thus giving you plenty of light for reading at night. Thus you can see how useful these lights are for work areas. Needless to say, they add to the general lighting as well.So to put it in a nutshell, there is no need to tear down walls or rearrange furniture to make a statement. All you require is some fabulous pendant lighting and you will be set – just keep the pointers in mind before purchasing!Read More
