There are some things to think about when selecting out your kitchen lamps…

Maintain lamp peak in thoughts.

Kitchen counter lamps have to be somewhat smaller and shorter than the everyday desk lamp. For instance, a standard nightstand lamp will most likely be too tall for this type of spot. 

The space between the highest of the counter and the underside of kitchen cupboards is normally 18 inches. 

Newer kitchen designs typically have a bit extra distance, round 20 inches. So preserve that in thoughts if you’re looking for countertop lamps!

Be good about lamp placement.

Contemplate your kitchen lamp placement — clearly inserting one proper subsequent to a scorching stovetop wouldn’t be the very best thought. Additionally, since most lamps have cloth shades, you do not need them to be close to a cook dinner area or the place you prep meals frequently.

Fortunately counters normally have loads of gadgets that may conceal the lamp cords, but when not, you may normally take away the felt piece on the backside of the lamp and pull the surplus wire into the bottom. 

Examine the bulb measurement and wattage.

A few of these smaller lamps solely take candelabra mild bulbs, which will not give off fairly as a lot mild. Be sure to test before you purchase! 

If you would like a brighter mild, you may need the lamp to have a regular E26 socket.
