Chances are you have several lamps throughout your house; they may be in the bedroom, the living room, or the game room, and you most likely use them on a regular basis. You may use one while you’re reading before bed, or you might turn one on in your office while you’re paying bills or balancing the checkbook. At Masterpiece Lighting in Atlanta, we love helping customers find new lamp options, and in this post, we’ll look at some ways you can improve your home with new fixtures.
The Living Room
Everyone has seen the traditional lamp on the end table next to the couch, and while this mainstay is a perfectly acceptable form of lighting design, it might seem a bit tired and outdated to your particular tastes. If you’ve divided your living room into zones, such as one for sitting, one for watching TV, and one for playing games, you can incorporate lamps into each of these areas. A corner or nook that holds your favorite chair can be enhanced with a floor lamp that casts light over your shoulder, making the chair a perfect spot for reading.
What comes to mind when you think of bedroom lamps – fixtures on nightstands on either side of the bed? This tried and true method doesn’t have to be done away with, but it’s good to think about where else you could place lamps in the bedroom. A small table or desk lamp could work perfectly on top of a dresser, and a floor lamp in the corner of the room could eliminate unwanted shadows.
Another spot to consider adding a lamp or two is in the closet. You may have one or two overhead fixtures in the space already, but how much better would the ambiance be with a small lamp on one shelf? If you have a walk-in closet that’s of average size, a well-placed lamp can help you pick out the right color of shoes, or aid you when picking a tie for work.
The Front Hallway
Your front hallway may be small and only need a bit of light, or it may be large and require a chandelier and a few wall sconces. Whatever the case may be, it can be greatly improved with the addition of a lamp on a small library table or credenza. Pairing a lamp with a mirror can help brighten the space, and putting the fixture on a timer will ensure that it comes on at the same time each evening. This will provide adequate light when you get home from work, and you won’t have to turn on every light in order to take off your coat or deposit your keys into the bowl on the hall table.
