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.
Intelligently selected and installed lamps are capable of do wonders with any bathroom. Lamps in combination with additional lights can create a quiet corner of the room for board games. lamps in the shape of a woman or a flower vase will make room in the bedroom of Princess, and lamps unique form of musical motifs can be used to create colorful and unusual living for a family of musicians.
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.
