What Kind of Lamp Should You Buy?

By Martha Bieber

There are so many lamps for sale, how do you choose the best one for your needs? There are many sizes and styles to choose from, so you have to consider where you are going to put it, and what kind of lamp will look best in that space. When you are shopping for a lamp, the following secrets will help you choose the best one.

It's important for the lamp to look good but it's more important for it to light the room well. It's important to get a lamp that will work with the bulb you need to use to light your room well. There are many types of bulbs now. Incandescent bulbs may still be quite common but led and compact fluorescent bulbs are becoming the "in" thing because they are more energy efficient. Many lamps however can't accommodate the bulbs above. If you are looking for a high wattage bulb you'll need a lamp capable of handling a higher wattage bulb.

Auction sites such as Ebay are a good resource if you are looking for an antique lamp. Make sure that you check out the feedback record when buying a lamp online. Check the return policy before you buy.

You will have more success seeking out antique lamps if you try auctions or antique shops. You have many time periods and locations to choose from when seeking antique styles. If you have a house full of antique furnishings it's a great idea to match your lamps to that. Don't buy a lamp until you know it actually works. Don't buy online unless you are sure the seller has a good rating. In many cases, antique lamps have a certain value, but if you are paying a lot for one, make sure it's an authentic antique and not a reproduction.

The above principles should be considered when buying a new lamp for your home.
