Lamp Buyer's Guide - Pick a Right Lamp

Decorating your house or apartment is exciting, but it can also be a challenge. There are many decisions to make: design styles, colors and price points, from furniture, carpets and accents to lighting. Choosing a light is an important step in creating a beautiful and livable home. But which kind of lamp should you buy? There are many options.


One way to simplify the number of choices is to determine the function and form of the bulb. What kind of lighting do you need? Will it be placed on the floor or on the table, or on the wall? Once you have the answers to these questions, it will be easier to choose the right lights.

Five basic types of lighting

Natural light - this is the light naturally produced in space during the day. It can produce positive psychological and emotional effects by improving attitudes and reducing stress.


Ambient Lighting - This form of lighting is often referred to as "general lighting" and is intended to provide a uniform overall illumination of the room. In general, when we enter a space, turn on a light switch, we will think of this problem. Ambient lights are usually chandeliers or wall lights, but they can also be hand or wall lights.


Task Lighting - This type of lighting can be thought of as lighting that is specific to performing a particular activity. For example, reading in the living room, doing paperwork in the home office, or preparing food on the kitchen counter is an activity that gains extra brightness through task lighting.


Key lighting (that is, focus lighting) - This light creates an atmosphere or is used to draw your attention to a particular object or aspect of your home's building or landscape. Maybe you have a special sculpture or artwork that you want to stand out.


Decorative lighting - this lighting is purely for aesthetic purposes. Think of it as a jewel in architecture - decorative lighting attracts attention, reflecting personal style or wealth.
