Lamps can be used in any room in your home and can serve a variety of functions. Contemporary lamps can add both functionality and beauty to any room in your home, while enhancing your decor and your own sense of style.

Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.

For those who are into something a little more modern there are lots of styles to choose from. Whatever your style preference though, you need to consider whether or not the lamp you are getting will fit your room. For example if you are looking for a table lamp for an end table, the height of the lamp should be such that it provides ample light to the area. This is dependent on the height of the table in relation to the couch, loveseat or chair next to the table. A three inch tall lamp would not only look silly if there is a 6 inch height difference, chances are it will not light anything. Typically, you should have 18-24 inches clearance from the bottom of the lamp shade to the arm of your furniture. This doesn't flood the entire room with light, but it will insure that you light more than the magazines on the table that you won't be able to read in the dark.
The most common variety which has halogen bulbs cannot be right for everyone. These bulbs can be very bright and tire the eyes. These are definitely not recommended for the children. They cannot study for long hours without the eyes getting droopy and tired. Some times the glimmer and flicker of long use of the halogen lamp can be another strenuous factor to the eyes. This kind of light is very focused only on the text that is being read. The other areas of the desk remain dark, unless the other light is on in the room. When one is looking for desk lamps, the main issue is the bulb and the light it throws on the study material and work at hand. The design and features come second. The utility stands over the décor part.
