Floor lamps do a lot for a room, and they can increase overall light or just make a room beautiful. The type and style you buy depends on how you’re going to use it.

A torchiere floor lamp floods the ceiling with light just like overhead lighting does. Place one in the living room, bedroom or any room you need ambient lighting for activities like reading a book or writing a grocery list.

Try a multi-directional floor lamp if you want to twist and turn the lights in all directions. It’s like three lamps in one. When deciding on style look around the room at your existing decor and finishes for style cues. Do you have a neutral couch, a pattern lampshade is always fun. Or try one in a bold color to breathe new life into an outdated foor lamp.

Is your room a tad on the dark side? A linen or cotton lampshade lets more light through, and wider shades do too. Just make sure the lampshade covers the light socket, and you also want to be sure the light bulb is at least three and a half inches from the shade on all sides. Once that’s done, plug in your new lamp and have fun with a good book

Floor lamps are almost a must-have for a well-designed lighting plan. They are beautiful, dramatic or sleek and sophisticated – an instant touch of modern or traditional depending on the style. They offer a warm, inviting light comparable to a table lamp – but can be used where a table cannot or simply to replace one.

Set The Mood

When choosing a floor lamp, keep in mind what you’re going to use it for – and where. It can create different desired moods. Your floor lamp can create a cozy reading nook or make a dramatic statement. If you need concentrated light in a specific area by a chair, sofa, or bed – choose one with an adjustable goose-neck or swing arm. The tall straight floor lamps with a shade can be used as the main source of directional light, and emit a warm inviting glow to the room. Floor lamps are sized to be the same general proper height of a table lamp.
