Due to the widespread information on the internet, many buyers already have an image on their minds when selecting your glass table lamp. If that is the case for you, then that's good news! However, if you're still undecided on which glass table lamp to take home, then here are some guidelines you may use to ascertain the best portable light for your needs:
Lighting Purpose: There are three primary purposes for lamps and lighting fixtures: ambient light, task light, and accent light. Ambient lights provide ample illumination in a space, often serves as the room's primary lighting source. Task lights, such as desk lamps and adjustable table lamps, provide intense direct light at a specific location, often placed on countertops for reading, writing, and drawing. The last purpose, accent lights, balance or enhance the atmosphere of a space. Glass table lamps can do any of the three lighting functions, with specific designs leaning on providing the room's main luminescence. To give an example, the Aberdeen Adjustable Ribbed Glass Brass Table Lamp can become a decorative task light for your office's desk space. For best results, always consider the functionality of your glass table lamp in its location.
Style (Colour, Design, Form): Newbie decorators and layman designers are most likely unfamiliar with the names of art design styles, but they definitely know the essence of complementing and combining different elements in a space to create a harmonious and attractive design. A room inspired by the Art Deco style is characterised by gentle curves, diffused lights, and functional fittings so the Jaxson Marble Base with Opal Glass Shade Table Lamp can flawlessly integrate into the room's ambience as a certified Art Deco table lamp. For a luxurious seaside appeal that matches well with the Hampton style, adding Corinne Glass Shell With White Linen Table Lamp and/or Tall Seeded Glass With Jute Shade Table Lamp connect the blues, whites, and browns of your furniture and decors. Carefully inspect the atmosphere and fittings in the room, then choose a table lamp that can enhance the beauty of that space.
Location and Positioning: The site where you will add your glass table lamp matter when deciding on its appearance. Generally, showcase-worthy glass table lamps, such as Christa Large Amber Glass with Linen Shade Table Lamp, are found in entryways, living areas, lobbies, or any place meant for socialising. Those with relaxed or interesting designs like the Zephanie Brass Cascading Clear Glass Rods Table Lamp and Shanghai Modern Table Lamp are fitting personal lamps in bathrooms and bedrooms. For spaces that need functional task lighting like offices and study halls, banker table lamps made from glass give a decorative appeal that does not grab one's attention excessively. Additionally, a simple activity such as adding a glass table lamp on a dull unadorned corner of the room can spice things up, boosting the liveliness and brightness of the space.
Size and Height: Your glass table lamp's proportions is a critical issue to tackle, especially if you're going to place it beside a couch, chair, or sofa. Designers have a term called the "eye-level rule", where the bottom part of the lampshade should be aligned with a person's eye level when he or she is in a sitting position. This way, the glare from the light bulb won't blind the eyes, letting one comfortable lay down on a chair or casually read a book. One also needs to consider the room's scale when choosing the right size for your lamp. You won't want a light that looks rotund and gigantic like the Ananas Metal & Glass Base Table Lamp in a small, cluttered library, nor would you want it too small like the Northampton Gold and Opal Glass Table Lamp to make an impact in an empty hallway.
Lamp Socket and Bulb: Most glass table lamps, no matter how many bulbs are attached to the frame, can only have one type of bulb base installed. However, the market for light bulbs is vast, with variations ranging from the typical E14 bulbs to the innovative GU10 bulb and anything in between. What's worse is that not all bulb types are available in all regions. Your local district might have Edison bulbs, but if the glass table lamp that you chose only allows B22 bulbs like the Sonya Brass Glass Table Lamp, then you'll have to spend some time researching where to get the necessary bulb online. To avoid unnecessary trouble, narrow down your choices by screening out glass table lamps that need bulbs unavailable in your local supermarket.
Lampshade: The glass table lamps in our collection can be bought as either a complete set (base and shade) or as base only. If you happen to choose to buy the latter, then you're probably worrying about what lampshade to partner it with. Designers advise beginners to pair the shape of the lamp's base to its shade. Hence, if you have a square table lamp base similar to Maurice Crystal Spheres Brass Stem Table Lamp, it's best to get an angular shade; purchase a rounded shade for a plump circular base comparable to the Zoe Round Glass Base with Natural Fibre Net Table Lamp. Moreover, consider the resulting effect of matching different colours and patterns of bases and shades. A shimmering black shade with a silver base may look classy, but a brass base accompanied by a bold red shade will look gaudy in any space.
These are just a few reminders that interior designers and lamp dealers tell to potential clients when helping them choose their own glass table lamps. But, of course, you may opt to not ponder on any of these factors as it's still your personal taste and creativity that will make any room go from ha-ha to ga-ga.
On Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and maintaining the beauty of residential and commercial lights must always be handled with caution. Especially with glass table lamps, as the material can easily shatter when dropped, shoved, or bumped into. But before starting your regular cleaning routine, you must always ensure (and this is really important) that the lamp is off and the cable is unplugged from the electrical socket!
There are many ways to clean glass. The most straightforward way is to use glass-safe soap and water. It’s also the most preferred way by our consumers as the necessary equipment is readily available at home. However, since we are dealing with water, it is advisable to disassemble the glass part from the electrical components before starting the cleanup procedure. Once that’s done, wash and soak the glass part in a container of soapy water. Next, gently scrub it if the lamp is particularly greasy or dirty. Afterwards, dry the lamp with a soft, lint-free cloth before putting it back with the other lamp parts.
Another method is to use a special glass cleaner, like Windex, and some newspapers. Spray the glass cleaner to the glass lamp component, then wipe it using old newspapers until the lamp part is clear and without scratches. Some buyers say that regular and recycled paper can also do the trick, but not the glossy paper from magazines.
You can also use a combination of vinegar and water to clean glass table lamps. Make a mixture of the two ingredients in equal parts (50/50) before using it to wipe away grime and filth using a lint-free cloth or newspaper. Just make sure that the table lamp does not have any metallic material as it will damage the metal.
