The right floor lamp shade depends in part on the purpose of your floor lamp.
For task lighting, choose a shade that directs most of the light downward toward your work. For ambient lighting, choose a shade with a pleasant color that will filter the ambient light into the room.
Many people favor gentle tones of cream, amber and pink for this purpose. Blue and green shades have a distressing tendency to make the people in the room look unwell.
I have a few 3-light fixtures, is there any problem with mixing wattage? So in one fixture to have a 60 watt bulb, and a 40 watt, and a 50 watt? Does mixing wattage make any diff if you use recessed or floodlight bulbs?
I have installed 3 halogen lamps on a track to illuminate a computer area, connected to a wall dimmer switch. They flicker and pulse-very annoying. It resolves when they are turned up all the way, but any decrease in the output makes a flicker. Any suggestions?
We are looking to hang track pendants in our kitchen. We need to span 8' with track. We want to use a Line voltage track. Where do we look for this lenght of track, can we choose any 120v pendant light we like and modify it to attach to a track? Are tracks compatible or what track should we use?
