Lava lamps are one of those retro pieces that are making a comeback in popularity. They’re fun, they’re kitschy, and they can add a touch of ’60s flair to any room. But one question we get asked a lot is, “Do lava lamps still get hot?”
The good news is that the heat from the lava lamp’s light bulb is contained within the lamp’s glass globe. So, as long as you don’t touch the globe, you’ll be fine.
If you’re worried about the heat, there are a few things you can do to keep your lava lamp cool. First, make sure the lamp is in a well-ventilated area. Second, don’t put the lamp on a surface that can’t handle the heat, like a plastic table. And finally, don’t leave the lamp on for more than eight hours at a time.
Doing these things will help keep your lava lamp cool and your home safe. So, go ahead and enjoy your retro piece without worry.
