Lamps are a popular way to provide illumination and ambiance to a room. Some people prefer them to built-in overhead lights since they tend to be softer and less overpowering. Lamps can come in various shapes, sizes, and colors to match and enhance a room’s décor. Buying a set rather than individually is the best way to ensure that your lamps complement each other in design and style, granting your living room or bedroom a more neat, uniform, and put-together appearance. More often than not, buying your lamps as a set will be more cost-efficient than buying them individually as well. Here are a few lamp sets that we recommend.
What to Consider in a Lamp Set
Here are a few things to think about before buying a lamp set:
- Design: The number of different lamp designs and styles are almost unlimited. This extends to both lamp’s base and its shade. The bases may be rounded, long and skinny, rectangular, square, hollowed out, and much more. They can be made of metal, porcelain, see-through crystalline material, or several other things. Shades also come in a range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Think about what you might prefer. Whether you like a modern, vintage, traditional, or some other style, you should be able to find a design that fits your home’s rooms and décor.
- Type: Most lamp sets you’ll find will be tabletop or desk lamps, made to rest on dressers, desks, nightstands, and TV or bedside tables. It is certainly possible to find floor lamps that come as a set, however. You may even find a lamp set that is comprised of a table lamp and a floor lamp. Consider which type or types of lamp you want for your living space and purchase accordingly.
- Quantity: Knowing how many lamps you want or need for your home will make a difference while shopping. This may depend on the size of the room or rooms you’re buying for, how much space is available, the overhead and natural lighting available, or other factors. Most lamp sets will be sold in pairs. While dual lamps are by far the easiest to find, sets of three are not uncommon. Sets of four or more will be trickier to find.
