When choosing a billiards lamp you have to consider several factors, including:
1. What is the type of look and/or feel you are trying to convey in the room?
2. What area of the room do you plan to light?
3. How many lamps do you have and where will they be place?
4. What is the limit on your budget?
It is important to determine whether the room is going be elegant and classy or fun and exciting! You do not want to end up with a fun game room with an elegant-style billiard's lamp. With modern day designers, there is enough variety to suit just about style of décor you choose.
It is very important to remember the color scheme throughout the process of choosing a billiard's lamp. You could mix and match the shades to give color uniformity to the room or just go with one color. You could try looking for a brand new style or something that looks a little more retro, such as a wrought iron billiard's lamp. This is a great way to add sophistication to a game or recreation room area, which in most homes, it not the epitome of style and class. A wrought iron billiard's lamp can give that aura without taking away from the overall fun vibe of the room.
You should also take the time to look around the room to determine where you are going to place the lamp as well as the billiard's table it will be hanging over. You also have to decide whether there will be one large lamp or several smaller billiards lamps. If using more than one lamp, try to coordinate lamps so that although they are different, they have a cohesiveness that makes them appear to be the same style. You might also try to find a large lamp that has a complimentary smaller lamp available.
Now that you have chosen the lamp you want, it is VERY important that you measure out the size of the lamp in conjunction with the space it will be hung in, to ensure that it will fit where you have envisioned it. Check the specifications carefully, make sure that you have measured everything correctly before you try to hang your lamp! You also have to be realistic about where you place your lamp to ensure that it is not in the way or obscuring an entrance, aisle or any other commonly used areas in the room. Moreover, when you are in the process of hanging, be sure that the lamp is not too close or too far from the table.
If you have a budget, keep in mind these lamps can be quite expensive. However, you pay for quality, so keep that in mind before you make the determination to bargain shop. If you do not plan to do it yourself, you should also plan for the expense of having a professional install the lamp.
