Another good thing to consider is the amount of energy your lamp will use. Electricity costs are higher than ever and every thing you can do to lower your energy bill will be very beneficial. If your lamp is just for decoration and not required to light large areas than you should consider buying a lower watt light bulb to put in this lamp. The latest trend in modern floor lamps has been to have softer light bulbs that just emit a faint glow. If your are using this lamp for reading or for lighting an area than you will want to consider buying a high watt light bulb that has the power to light a large area. Usually a reading floor lamp will require a light bulb of at least 120 watts but other lamps can have bulbs well below 120. Also I recommend that your go with a compact fluorescent light bulb as these are much more energy efficient and will last much loner than a normal light bulb.
For those who are looking for a higher degree of light to be emitted from their lamp, then it is perhaps a good idea to opt for a halogen product. This is due to the fact that halogen bulbs can operate at higher temperatures than other types of bulbs, enabling a bright and attractive light to permeate through the room. Halogen bulbs also have a long life expectancy, so you could find that you get good value for money in the long-term.
While choosing a lamp shade for your table lamp, you can chose myriad options of designs, styles and size. Your convenience should be foremost in your mind while choosing the lamps and identifying the shade best suited for you. If you use too much complex material or settle for glass, you could experience frequent damage and glass is not exactly cheap to replace. If the choice of the shade is not right, it could affect the light and will not serve your purpose.
