The average table lamps in the market are typically 20 to 30 inches or 50 to 76 centimetres tall. Tall table lamps, from their name, have an overall height beyond this range. Due to their higher centre of gravity, tall table lamps are usually placed out of children’s reach or on a long stable countertop that can support its weight in case it is overturned.
Much like other lamps, tall table lamps can come in different shapes, colours, materials, and styles. From simple and minimalist neutral-toned designs to those with extravagant crystals and diamonds, tall table lamps can become one of your staples for a home’s layered lighting.

Tall table lamps are commonly used in interiors to balance out the proportions of the space. For example, if you have a low table that does not align with the overall perspective of the space, you can use a tall table lamp to lift up the sight line for that area. Another use for tall table lamps is to bring the eyes away from the vacancy left on a long countertop. A tall table lamp whose overall height must not exceed 1.5 times the height of the table can draw the attention of the viewer, overlooking the barrenness presented by the surface it is standing on.
Reminders when using Tall Table Lamps
Have you decided to purchase a tall table lamp for your space? If so, excellent! But before you place that in some corner of your home, make sure that you’ve read these reminders for your safety, security, and guidance. These reminders are also applied to other lamp types, so ensure that you follow them at all times:
Avoid placing them in high-traffic areas: Tall table lamps can be easily knocked over or bumped into by people or pets, especially if they are placed on narrow or crowded surfaces. This can cause damage to the lamp or injury to the person or animal. Try to place your tall table lamps in low-traffic areas or secure them with adhesive pads or brackets.
Avoid using them near water sources: Unless it has a high enough IP rating, tall table lamps can pose a risk of electric shock or fire if they come into contact with water or moisture. This can happen if they are placed near sinks, bathtubs, showers, pools, or humidifiers. Make sure your tall table lamps are away from any water sources, and use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet to prevent electrocution.
Avoid using them near curtains or other flammable materials: Tall table lamps can generate heat and cause combustion if they are too close to curtains, drapes, bedding, carpets, or other flammable materials. This can result in fire or smoke damage to your property or belongings. Keep your tall table lamps at least twelve inches away from any flammable materials, and do not cover them with cloth or paper.
Avoid using them with damaged or faulty parts: Tall table lamps can malfunction or break down if they have damaged or faulty parts, such as cracked bases, frayed cords, loose sockets, or broken switches. This can cause sparks, short circuits, or power surges that can harm your lamp or other electrical devices. Check your tall table lamps regularly for any signs of wear and tear and replace or repair any damaged or faulty parts as soon as possible.
Tall table lamps can be safe and enjoyable to use if you follow these cautions and use common sense. You can also consult the manufacturer’s instructions or a qualified electrician for more guidance on how to use your tall table lamps safely and properly.
