Choosing on Great Desk Lamp If you’re interested in getting a new lamp shades uk, there are a lot of styles and brands available. How can you pick the one that’s best for your needs? Stand-alone or Attached The first thing to figure out is whether you want to get a lamp that attaches to the rear of the desk or a stand-alone lamp that sits on your desk. If you’re an architect, artist or someone else who wants good lighting for the entire surface of your desk, you’ll probably prefer an attached lamp. Another nice thing about attached lamps is that they don’t use up space on the surface of the desk. Stand-alone lamps are nice if you don’t need your whole desk top lit. They’re normally more flexible and aesthetic, and they’re better for mood lighting than attached lamps. Adjustable Lamps Adjustable lamps are nice if you use your desk for tasks that require different lighting needs. Perhaps the most versatile type of adjustable lamp is the swing arm lamp, where the base of the lamp remains fixed, while the upper part swings and tilts as needed. But make certain the swing arm is stable enough for the lamp head to remain in whatever position you put it in. You should think about getting one that has a counterweighted system, because they last much longer than other types. The other types of systems will fail: springs will stretch, screws will break, flexible arms will go caput and hydraulics will spring a leak. Lamp Styles Dome lamps emit a fairly bright light and are modern, practical and fashionable. If you’re a traditionalist, you might want a standard lamp with a lampshade. Just be certain it’s tall enough to light as much of the desk top as you want it to.

If you’re someone who wants to make fashion statements, accent lamps might be to your liking. They come in a lot of styles and sizes, and tend to be conversation pieces. If the lamp is for your child’s room, you’ll want to be sure it’s safe and unbreakable. Incandescent bulbs aren’t recommended, as their high heat pose a fire hazard and can burn kids. Bulb Types Incandescent bulbs are cheap, but they have little else to offer. They are energy hogs and the quality of their light is just average. LED lights are the most energy-wise and the most durable of any bulbs, but they’re also the most expensive, and the quality of their light is poor. Full-spectrum fluorescent tubes offer the best quality of light, as long as they’re run on direct-current (DC). Unlike their AC counterparts, DC tubes don’t flicker. But flickering AC fluorescent tubes can cause headaches and eyestrain for the overwhelming majority of people who only have AC power. Halogen bulbs for reading lamps yield the best quality of illumination for people on AC power. It’s bright and clear, and the clean white light offers a good contrast to the dark letters on a page. You have a vast array of lamp styles and bulb types to choose from, so if you look hard enough, you’re sure to find something you like.
