General Lamp / January 15, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd
First, ask yourself if you are only person that will be using the lamp on a daily basis and if you will use it often. A lamp must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. If you plan to do a lot of reading at a table in your home office, you may need a stronger light from a short lamp. Alternatively, if you want to create a warm mood in your living room, a softer light from a tall lamp will be more effective. Further, your office may need a lamp that is short, casts a lot of light and doesn't attract unnecessary attention to itself.
Second, ask yourself where you plan to use the lamp. If you plan to light a big room with an undecorated wall, a small lamp may feel unnecessarily tiny. A tall lamp may be more appropriate. Of course, if you would like to place a lamp on top of a bookcase in your study, a small lamp may work perfectly.
