Which Size Salt Lamp Should I Buy?

4 min read

You’ve likely heard about the various benefits of Himalayan salt lamps, such as their ability to emit negative ions to help purify the air and their ability to uplift your mood. With this in mind, if you’re thinking about buying a salt lamp and want to get the most out of your purchase, you’ll need to take a few things into consideration before choosing the size of your lamp.


First, how big or small is your room? Will it stay on your nightstand at home, or do you want something smaller that can fit in your office or carry-on bag? What type of lighting are you looking for, a warmer or cooler intensity? Which size salt lamp should I buy?

These are a few factors to consider but worry not, we will cover all your questions and more.

We also recommend reading our article: Guide to purchasing a Himalayan salt lamp for an extensive guide on buying a salt lamp.

Does the size of my room matter?

While there are a number of factors to consider, the most important by far is the size of your room itself. Salt lamps should be scaled to the room in order to be most effective. The illumination and number of negative ions emitted by Himalayan salt lamps correspond to their size and surface area. So, you want to ensure that a lamp is large enough for your room.

Which size salt lamp should I buy? If you have a relatively small bedroom at 100 square feet, a medium size salt lamp of 5 to 7 pounds will work quite well. However, if your room is larger, it won’t be big enough to purify the air as efficiently. For rooms up to 200 square feet, a large Himalayan salt lamp of 7-9 lbs. would be the minimum size desired. For rooms larger than this, you’ll want to go with an extra-large salt lamp starts at 9lbs. and goes up to 11 lbs.

Is the style of your room important when purchasing a salt lamp?

Yes and no. Of course, you want your room to be functional as well as beautiful, but you also don’t want to lose focus of why you bought a Himalayan Salt Lamp in the first place: to improve your air. So, which size salt lamp should I buy?

In general, larger lamps are better for larger rooms, while smaller lamps are better for smaller rooms. Your personal preference will play a role in which shape of lamp you choose too, so select a design that matches your existing décor and lighting needs. When it comes to where you place your Himalayan Salt Lamp in your home or office, many people like to keep them on nightstands near their beds or on tables next to chairs.


Do you like warm lighting or cool lighting?

Another thing you want to consider is what kind of lighting is most appealing to you. Of course, purifying the air is not the only reason people opt for Himalayan salt lamps. They also provide a bright, vibrant light that creates a warm atmosphere. When selecting a lamp for lighting, size can have a significant impact.

Larger lamps can provide more warm light. However, if you really want to enhance the lighting in your room, opting to strategically place a few medium Himalayan salt lamps around your bedroom can create the ambience you desire and provide multiple sources of air purification at the same time.

Efficiency

The other thing that you will want to consider is efficiency. Larger lamps are more efficient in air purification. Thus, an extra-large lamp even in a small bedroom will enhance its performance, leading to better air quality and enhanced benefits.

Again, opting to pair multiple lamps together in a room can help as well. Having multiple sources emitting negative ions will improve the results you see from the lamps, particularly if the air in your bedroom doesn’t circulate well.
