Because making a lamp is actually quite simple, you won't really need too many tools. Basically, you'll require a screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and possibly a drill. You'll also need to choose something to use as the base for your lamp, such as a wine bottle, canning jar, or pottery jug. You'll also need a lamp kit, which will make things especially easy. You could also purchase the wiring components separately. In this case, you would need a threaded hollow rod of the appropriate height for your base, a socket and cord, an electric plug, and brass sheath. However, if you've never tried making a lamp before, using a kit is probably the best option. You will also need a lamp harp, a lamp shade, and a light bulb. Depending on the base you choose, you may also need some silicone adhesive.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
