The Right Way to Pick Hanging Lamp

Hanging lamp patterns and styles come in various forms and are made from a combination of materials. Price will depend on the components and material such as bronze, brass and iron. All models basically hang from the ceiling and are mounted, built-in or plugged. These can be made from metal, plastic, wood with other components like glass and ceramic.

The types of shades or sconces will also differ such as wicker and stained glass. A hanging swag lamp is a typical design which features the lamp hanging by a cord, spring or chain. Hanging Tiffany lamps are also popular featuring a very unique design with good combination of colors and patterns.

Compared to traditional models, a hanging lamp provides you with the opportunity of added space, better illumination and a centerpiece. You get to have more floor space and by placing the lighting fixture overhead, more room area is brightened up which also saves more energy. Some people find that investing in an attractive piece like a Tiffany lamp creates a nice ambiance without needing to add other large and expensive decorations. Swag lamps can be adjusted to any height and is very functional as a reading light.

Choosing the Right Hanging Lamp

You need to determine the total area of the room first to ensure that the hanging lamp’s size will be proportionate to the space. Check the shade especially traits like the transparency so that you get to illuminate important areas of the room. You may have to change the bulb wattage depending on your needs. A larger hanging lamp is recommended provided that it also has the right material, color and pattern that matches your area.

Also consider how you are going to install the lamp. Can your ceiling accommodate it properly? Some models feature several bulbs or sconces. You may want to take out a few bulbs to save more energy without compromising illumination. A good choice would be a hanging lamp that is functional, economical and aesthetic at the same time. Upon purchasing, check that all components are complete such as screws, hooks, chains, plug, wires, instruction manual, etc.
