 Table lamps: Guide to choosing the right one

Looking for a lamp for your bedside table? Do you want a designer atollo replica lamp for your home office? Would you like to create a special atmosphere in your living room by playing with lighting?

Here is a short guide to help you choose the right table lamp for you.

What function does your lamp have?

Table lamps can cover different functions: each of them meets specific needs and it is important to know what you want to achieve in order to choose the right lamp for you.

Bedside table lamps

If you happen to be looking for a reading lamp for your bedside table, you will have to pay attention to some details: the color of the light, the intensity of the light and the risk of glare.

How to do it? To illuminate pages and devices without tiring your eyes, choose a warm-toned bulb, with a color temperature no higher than 3500 Kelvin and a medium light intensity, better if it does not exceed 500 Lumen, to read and relax at the same time.

Last but not least, you will be able to avoid putting glare protection for the source of light: a glass bulb with porcelain effect or display lamp will be the perfect options to complete your table lamp safely for your view.

Desk lamps

If you are looking for a table lamp for your home office, or you want to improve the lighting of your children’s desk, it will be important to choose a lamp that allows concentration and minimizes distractions.

Whether you will be needing to work with the computer or study with books and notebooks, it will be very important to choose a bulb that does not tire your eyes: a warm or neutral light, preferably white, will be the best choice.

It happens to maximize concentration by creating a diffuse and uniform light on the desk, avoiding, as much as possible, the sharp contrasts of light and shadows that is able to create annoying reflections on the screens and strain the view more than necessary.
