Turquoise Lamp

When decorating or choosing a color scheme for a room, turquoise is a color that is oftentimes over looked. This is probably because turquoise is most often associated only with jewelries, so that we do not consider using it in our rooms.

Turquoise is a beautiful blue-green color that can light up a room and make it seem to glow with warmth and coolness combined. If you want to light up your room well and incorporate turquoise into it too, you should get yourself a turquoise lamp.

A turquoise lamp and/or lamp shade can match to a lot of different color schemes in a room. Although you may not think of it, turquoise goes well with many colors. Turquoise and pink go very well together, as they are bring warm and cool colors together and create a balance.

Turquoise also goes well with red since blue and red are both primary colors. It also goes well with black and brown since these colors are natural. And, most surprisingly of all, turquoise goes well with orange. Although we generally do not mix blue with orange, turquoise has the exact right shade to mix the two colors well.

There are many different kinds of turquoise lamps and lamp shades available in terms of the kind of bulb fitted to the lamp.

  • First of all, there is the incandescent kind of turquoise lamp. This is the most common type because incandescent bulbs are quite cheap, but provides dimmer light. The problem with these bulbs is that they eat up quite a bit of energy sometimes.
  • Next, there are fluorescent turquoise lamps. These are brighter than incandescent bulbs and take up less electricity and are around the same price as incandescent bulbs.
  • Recently, Light Emitting Diode or LED bulbs have come to the frontlines of turquoise lamps. These are used usually for night lights and decorative lights. LED bulbs are very economical since they only require little electricity.
  • Lastly, there are low pressure sodium lamps, which are very efficient but not very bright. This type is best used for outdoor lamps.
