A lamp must also fit the mood of a room and the environment. Each room must have a different from the others depending on the use of the room. A bedroom table lamp cannot be the same as an office table lamp. The colors of the two lamps must differ because one is meant for a cool sleeping mood while the other is meant for a bright office. A bedroom lamp should bear colors that will make a person feel relaxed and hence be able to unwind.
Whichever shape you settle for, the width should be adequate to serve your purpose without taking too much space on top and also taking away none of the beauty of the piece as well. Your best bet would be to identify the right height before you go shopping since this alone will narrow your choices and make it easier for you to select the right one.
Pendant lighting should be hung about 32" to 40" above the kitchen table for nice lighting for a meal. If you are going to be using it as a reading light instead of a table light, you may want to lower the hang height for more direct lighting. Attaching a dimmer control is going to be ideal for a reading light, because the light directed straight down could become very bright, and now you have the flexibility to use the same light for many different tasks.
Recessed lighting is not so much decor-oriented as it is providing ambient light to highlight the room in the way you wish. They are best put to use in the ceiling, highlighting a chair you frequently sit in to read, or even a painting on the wall. Since they are recessed, the fixtures are not as noticeable, so there are less styles of this type of lighting available. Most are painted white to fit in with traditional ceilings, but you do have stainless steel options available as well.
