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"] 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?

VentilationProper 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 raysThe 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 SkylightsThis 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 tubesYou 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 coloursYou 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 windowsWindows 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 spaceThe 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 shelvesLight 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 draperyIf 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.
