It seems that a quarter of our life has always been – and shall remain so it seems - surrounded by books and if we continue reading and collecting, eventually we would have naturally amassed a library of books.As times move on, possibly, those dry textbooks of yore are replaced by books that become precious reading materials that we would like to keep and even pass onto the next generation.

Decorative Lamp V.S. Lighting: So Many to Choose From

Jelani Decorative Buffet Lamp

There are so many different types of decorative lamps, so it’s bound to be a time when you're not sure which one to go with.

This is quite common problem, and you should never let this be a turn off when it comes to choosing a lamp. First off, lighting should be a fun and it should represent who you are. Whether it's for functional or decorative purposes, you should figure out what is the main intention of this decorative lamp in your home decor. Does this lamp act as a lighting fixture or is it a core center piece used for home decoration? Many lamps are made to serve for a function; some may even be capable of multiple functions. All decorative lamps are functional to a certain degree and can be used for lighting; otherwise, the lamp would be pointless. However, since there are so many types of lamps, it is important to keep in mind how strongly it illuminates a room; if it is for decoration and you plan to have several lamps, it would be wise to choose some that illuminates less, so they can be turned on without being pointless or wasteful.

Here are some example questions you can ask yourself when it comes to choosing a lamp:

Do I want to get a decorative lamp for decoration to complement the style of the room?

Is there a certain lighting accent I'm trying to bring out within the room?

How many lights do I want in the room? Will I want to turn them all on at once?
