The utter simplicity of clear glass will often lend itself to having a myriad of colors available to pair up the lamp with brightly colored shades, for instance, allowing you to match just about any color scheme you may desire. On the other hand, glass comes in a rainbow of colors, thus you may opt for a colored glass lamp with a simpler shade.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
A lamp for the dining room can be from 20 to 36 inches in height. Choose a lamp that is just the right height so it would not shine straightly on the diner's eyes. Place a lamp with slim base in the dining room so it will take only less space and leave enough room for food platters, tableware stacks and other stuffs. To provide a romantic glow in the room, you can use a lamp with metallic gold or nickel interior and opaque shade. Bulbs to be used in dining rooms are below 60 Watts; bulbs with silver tips can effectively reduce glare.
Antique furniture needs special care and attention and so do accessories like an Antique table lamp. Lamps add a lot of functional value and appeal to a room but we should understand that over time they collect dust, dirt and are prone to other maintenance related problems. This not only hampers the lamp's ability to provide adequate light but also steals the charm away from your home decor. No one would want to look at older used and dirty antique lamp. Therefore in order to keep your lights elegance and beauty intact you have to follow a strict maintenance routine. The routine can be twofold. One routine that is needed is weekly dusting of the lamp and another- polishing, which is followed quarterly or annually.
