How to Choose the Right Lamp for Your Room

How to Choose the Right Lamp for Your Room

Lighting can make all the difference to the décor of your room. But choosing the right lamp can be challenging. Buying one that’s not quite right can throw off your carefully designed space, so make sure you consider the type of light that suits your needs best.

Whether you’re on the hunt for something functional or a decorative piece, Ultra LEDs’ variety of LED candle bulbs can help to bring out the best in your chosen fixture.

Task Lamp

Perfect for placing on your desk, a task lamp is essential for anyone who loves to read at night or needs a well-lit workspace. To get the most out of this practical lighting fixture, consider choosing a fully adjustable model. Being able to easily move the lamp head ensures the light shines directly onto your sheet of paper so you don’t have to keep moving as the sun goes down. It’s also worth thinking about getting a lamp with different intensities so you can decide on the strength you need for the task at hand.

Light Therapy Box

Ideal for those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or even just a case of the winter blues, these specially designed light boxes can add a touch of positivity to your day. Switching the lamp on for just 30 minutes could help to uplift your spirits. Usually positioned in your bedroom, the light box can help you to feel more awake and ready for the rest of your morning.

Novelty Lamp

Sometimes you just need a fun accent to brighten up your room. Whether you choose a retro lava lamp, a neon sign or a multi-coloured disco ball, they can bring something different to an otherwise minimalist room. Some lamps even come in striking shapes, like the moon, a tree, or different animals. You don’t have to be a child to find joy in small characterful additions to your home, so go ahead and pick out your favourite one.

Smart Lights

Whether you have a smart home or are particularly tech-savvy, a smart light could fit right into your forward-thinking life. These come in all shapes and sizes, but some of the most convenient are unassuming desktop models. Not only will they light up the room, but they’ll boast a wide range of other handy functions too. The lamp can be linked to an app or voice-activated for more convenient use, while more advanced models can play music or turn themselves on and off automatically when you’re away on holiday.

Energy Saving

If you’ve decided to choose a selection of lamps to make your room look brighter than ever, be sure to consider energy-saving options. Most lights should come with an energy rating or at least show you how much energy they use. Some bulbs will also use less energy than others, which is an important consideration if you have a lamp that will be on most of the time. Otherwise, you could see your bills increase dramatically.
