How to Use Lamps to Accent a Home Lamps do much more than light a room. They create ambiance and add to the entire décor of your home. There are several different types of affordable lamps and countless designs and colors, so there is sure to be a lamp that is perfect for every room in your house. Once you learn about the different styles and ways you can use them, you will find it easy to elevate the décor in your home with these accent pieces. Types of Lamps When most people think of lamps, they think of table lamps that sit on a nightstand or end table. In reality, there are many other types that you can use to decorate and light your home. Here are just a few of the different kinds of lamps you can choose: Table lamps Floor lamps Swing-arm lamps Desk lamps Hanging lamps When you decorate your home using affordable lamps, you will want to choose a mixture of the different types to add beauty and interest to every room in your home. Matching Lamps to a Design Theme When you choose lamps to decorate your home, you will want to make sure that you choose pieces that accent your design theme. Tiffany-style stained glass lamps are perfect for antique themes, while crystal or polished stainless steel can add depth to a modern theme. Many styles of lamps are available in colors that coordinate with your furniture while blending in with your theme. Copper or bronze lamp bases work well for both antique and Southwestern themes, and you can always mix and match lampshades to get the perfect look for your home. Choosing Lamps for Each Room Some lamps work better in specific rooms in your home. Swing-out lamps—which are wall-mounted—are ideal for placement on either side of your bed for late-night reading. Similarly, a floor lamp with a swing-out arm is a great option for a living room or study, and is typically placed next to an armchair. Living rooms usually include a mix of table and floor lamps to provide accent lighting and enhance the overall décor of the room. In bathrooms and hallways, you may want to opt for wall sconces, though table lamps can work for a hallway table as well.
