The lampshade is one of those decorative pieces that, in addition to being very functional, floods the room with comfort and warmth.
In the living room, the lamp is even more inviting, as this is the ideal place in the house for that relaxed chat or that special reading.
But to be able to make the most of what this object has to offer, you need to pay attention to some details, otherwise, your intimate decor could go down the drain. In this post you will find out everything you need to buy the ideal lamp for your living room.
The word abajur, from the French abat-jour, means “to lower the light”, that is, this is the ideal object to create a diffused point of light in the room, enhancing the decoration with the creation of shadows and preventing direct contact with the light.
Maybe that’s why the table lamp has never gone out of fashion and is still so appreciated by decorators. The object exudes elegance, harmony and an extra charm for the environment.
There are different types of living room lamps. The models vary in size, color, shape of the dome and, mainly, the position in which they are in the environment. Some models are suitable to be placed on the floor, while others must be used on a small table.
The decoration of your living room will determine whether the lamp will be white or black, colored or printed, tall or low, on the floor or on the table, and so on. But some details are independent of this decorative concept.
Therefore, the tips below can (and should) be applied at the time of purchase, no matter what type of lamp you are going to buy. Check them all carefully to get the model right and take advantage of the presence of this literally illuminated object:
- When choosing a table lamp, pay attention to the size of the dome, especially if the model is a table lamp. The lampshade must have a base and shade proportionate to the size of the table. If the base is too big and the table too small, the lampshade can easily be knocked over, in addition to not offering an aesthetically favorable result;
- The lampshade needs to offer visual comfort. Therefore, the ideal is for the light to reflect at shoulder height. If the lampshade is too high, the light can get in the way and obscure the view, if it is too low, the lighting will be insufficient;
- The choice of lamp is also very important. If the main function of the table lamp is to help with reading, opt for a white light so as not to strain your eyes. If the intention is to create a more intimate climate for the room, yellow light is the most suitable, as it is warm and cozier;
- Remember to leave a socket near the lamp to avoid exposed wires in the room;
