Lamps vs. Overhead Lighting

Maybe you haven’t relied on a lamp as the sole source of light for a room since you were wedged into your first apartment, but there are several reasons why you might find <a title="Quality Lamps" href="http://www.atgstores.com/lamps_869.html?linkloc=topnav" target="_blank">lamps</a> preferable to <a title="Ceiling Lights" href="http://www.atgstores.com/ceiling-lights_867.html?linkloc=topnav" target="_blank">overhead lighting</a>. Just to name a few ways lamps really lick the ceiling-light competition … <strong> 1.       </strong><strong>Installation</strong> Ha! What installation? Just plug it in. People like to say lighting fixtures are easy to install, but “easy” is a relative concept when it comes to things that can blast electricity through your body if you mess up.<span style="text-align: center;"> </span> [caption id="attachment_11455" align="aligncenter" width="177"]<a title="Crystal Floor Lamp" href="http://www.atgstores.com/floor-lamps/eglo-85335a-pyton-4-light-floor-lamp_g552417.html?isku=5228785&amp;linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage" target="_blank"><img class=" wp-image-11455 " title="EGLO Lamp" src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/bluelamp-300x300.jpg" alt="EGLO Pyton 4 Floor Lamp" width="177" height="177" /></a> Shocking, but in a good way.[/caption] <strong>2.        Placement</strong> Lamps are mobile, but once you install a fixture, well … they don’t call 'em "fixtures" for nothin’. It's a lot easier to switch out the fixture if the wiring's installed, but it's still more difficult than moving a lamp.

Cheaper is not always better, but for someone on a budget who needs light more than luxury it may be the best solution of all.
