The design and prices of new table lamps are various. If you are going to buy a new table lamp, you could purchase a high quality table lamp that goes well with the bill or you could end up purchasing a defective lamp. That will all boil down to how clever a buyer you are. If you think you are not good enough or clever enough as a buyer, here are some tips on how to buy a new table lamp.
It is important to measure the height of the lighting fixture to recognize whether it is tall enough to cast light over the shoulder or not. This is vital especially for lamps that are to be located on chair-side table. The bottom edge of the lamp shade should be just even with the cheek bone when sitting and the light should cast obviously on the page when reading.
It is very vital to decide on the table lamp’s maximum wattage. A lamp for normal lighting purposes should come with more or less 50 watts. But for reading lamps, it should offer at least 150 watts. Clever buyers even go for a tri-light lamp that offers 50 watts, 100 watts and 150 watts for versatility.
It is very important as well to check if the bottom edge of the lamp shade hides the bulb socket when it is a feet away. If the bulb socket is exposed, then that’s a bad lamp to purchase since the eyes will be exposed to much glare which can cause eye damage.
It is also very vital to inspect the lamp shade to notice if it has the qualities that the clever buyer desires. The lamp shade could either decrease or make the most of light output. A white fabric shade allows the highest light output while a darker shade can limit it. A lamp that emits bright light is good for study areas for maximum lighting while a less bright lamp is good for entry ways. And so, a clever buyer always takes note of that.
It is very wise to request to switch lamp shades to gratify what you need in a lamp. You would go to the lamp store manager to do that. Then, it becomes very essential to bring the lighting fixture home and turn it on at different times of the day to check how it works under different lighting conditions. If a clever buyer is not pleased, you go back to the lamp store and to ask for a full refund or for a product exchange. You will also ask for repayment or switch over when the table lamp is too tall, too bulky, too bright or too dark.
And the last is that after buying the high quality lamp you are looking for, a clever settle on your chair reading a book on their hand while sipping a cup of coffee under the glowing light of her newly-bought table lamp. So, when you are buying new tall table lamps, do what a clever buyer does and you’ll be fine.
