When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
Decorating a home or a new room can be fun, extremely rewarding and creates a nice environment in the most important place possible, your home. Yet many people will fully decorate a house and not realize that they are missing a very important aspect, one that is very simple to include in your home decoration plans yet makes a huge difference in the style of your home. Lighting is an extremely important aspect of home decoration and one of the best ways to create a warm and comfortable house. There are millions of ways to improve the lighting in your house but from experience I can tell you that the best way to create a welcoming, well lit room is to add some modern floor lamps.
