Unique lamps can add additional lighting, character, and style to a room’s decor as well as enhance the beauty of a home. Lamps are offered in a wide selection of unique styles, forms, shapes, and sizes that complement a variety of decor styles and themes. If you would like to spice up a room’s decor without spending a great deal of money, you might want to consider adding unique lamps to your decor space. You can find all sorts of unusual styles that can add definition and style to a room, and will not empty your wallet in the process. By choosing a lamp as a decorative accent, you will not only add functional mood lighting to your room, but will also add character and charm at the same time.
An option you may want to consider when looking for unique lamps to add to your home decor are lamps with an unusual base or lamp shade that complement your home decor style. This is a great option for a room with an overall themed decor that you would like to perk up or add dimension to. For example, if you have a room with a beach feel or theme, you might want to add a light fixture or lamp that has more of a nautical look to it. You could choose a table lamp featuring a ship’s wheel, an over sized piece of coral, or even a giant seashell as the base. Any one of these base styles ties in perfectly to a beach themed room and will also give you the extra lighting you may need. Today, there are all sorts of unique lamps to choose from that complement a multitude of decor styles that can be found at great prices.
Although there are numerous styles and designs to choose from, finding unique lamps that suit your personal style or needs is not always an easy task. If you find yourself in this situation there is another option you may want to consider. You can easily make your own lamp using a lamp kit purchased at a hardware or an arts and crafts store. A home decor accessory that complements your decor theme, such as a figurine or vase, can be used as the base of the lamp. You can then purchase a lamp shade in the color of your choice and embellish it with accents and trim if desired, making a one of a kind lamp and shade sure to empress all.
A detailed or colorful lamp shade is a great opportunity to show off a little of your personality and style. Although you may want the shade to allow the right amount of light into the room, there is nothing that says you have to stick with a basic white or off-white toned lamp shade. You may want to go with something totally different to bring a little interest or color into your home decor. Whether you choose a shade with a pattern, a vibrant color, or decorative accents such as fancy braids and beaded trims dangling form the bottom of the shade, it is all about adding a little bit of uniqueness to your space.
Modern lighting fixtures have come a long way since the time of the humble light bulb. Contemporary lighting needs to be functional as well as stylish. You can find lighting options that add beauty to your decor and also provide good lighting. For contemporary decor, choose lighting fixtures that have clean lines and sleek designs. Pendant lights and table lamps are available in numerous sizes, shapes, finishes, and colors, so you can choose according to your preferences.
Pendant lights are smart lighting accessories that are space-saving and visually appealing. You can hang them individually on a chain or a cord from the ceiling or place some together on a track that is suspended from the ceiling. You can use pendant lamps fitted on a track as task lighting above a table or a desk, or hang them together in differing sizes and colors for stylish accent lighting.
The most common type of pendant lamps is the industrial pendant, which has a bell-shaped shade and is available in glass, and metal. These pendant lights give focused light and provide a better option for task lighting. Pendant lights encased in blown glass shades can add a sense of spaciousness and brightness to a room. You can also choose pendant lighting that complements themed decor. Pendant lights encased in metallic cage coverings suit a vintage theme, whereas for a sea-side or beach theme, opt for pendant lamps that have tiers of seashells or capiz shells.
Another modern lighting option that can illuminate, as well as add style to your home, is the table lamp. Found in myriad of designs, shapes, and styles, table lamps provide beautiful lighting that can transform the appearance of a room. Depending on the amount of lighting needed, the size of the table, and the decor of the room, you can choose a suitable table lamp. Choose table lamps with shades in vibrant colors to brighten up a minimalist-styled entryway, foyer, desk or nightstand.
Modern table lamps can be made of ceramic, wood, metal, glass, or even terracotta. Regardless of the material, you can find these lamps in an incredible range of contemporary designs and shapes. Contemporary decor can be made more luminous and colorful with well chosen pendant lighting and table lamps.
