Giant Lava Lamps

Developed in the 1970s, lava lamps are seeing a surge in popularity as people seek to add more sensory elements into their home decor design. Lava lamps are not only mesmerizing to watch but also add a mood-setting element to any bedroom, living room, or any other room in the home. The largest size lamps can serve as a focal point and range in size between 16" and 27" tall.

Most lava lamps are made of glass, with others created out of transparent plastic. The larger glass versions provide a wider view of the ambient light and are highly recommended for a better overall effect. Base materials may vary, but those made of metal are the most popular.

The liquid inside these lamps is twofold. A colored wax mixture is encased along with a clear, translucent carrier liquid. As the heating element in the lamp's base warms the wax, it changes density and creates the hypnotic movement that makes these fixtures so popular. In certain lamps, Ferrofluid,a magnetic liquid, is used and can be easily manipulated with magnets.

Since the lava lamp is filled with liquid, the quality and durability of caps and bases are also important to consider. Look for models that specify tight fittings and long-lasting materials. Most lamps do not come with a long-term warranty but offer a 30, 60, or 90-day coverage. A few quality ones offer protection plans, usually for low prices between $3-$5.00.

When it comes to adding color to any room, options abound with lava lamps. Add one with several colors, and you can expect a multi-level ambiance.For a more soothing effect, go with one color, such as blue, known as the color of calmness and relaxation, or combine yellow and purple for a cheerful, creative, and optimistic effect.

These lamps are relatively safe but need to be handled carefully because they combine heat, electricity, and liquid. Avoid fires by purchasing one made of high-quality materials and only leave it on for eight hours or fewer at a time.
