Floor Lamps is a Part of Your Home Decor

By Aaron Smith Subscribe to RSS | February 16th 2012 | Views:

Floor lamps are those delightful things you see placed on the ground in most trendy homes or offices. They provide a subtle and diffused source of lighting which can be used for general or ambient lighting, or to highlight a particular area of the room. The beauty of this source of light is that it can be placed in a corner where it bounces of the walls and ceilings providing a very soft source of lighting for the rest of the room.

These lamps provide a much better source of light than traditional ceiling lights which are much too harsh for a cozy setting or the more common table lamps which are too dull to light up an entire room and are only good for casting a small pool of light around their edges.

Floor Lamp come in all shapes and sizes from arch designs, to spirals to tridents, not to mention all the various materials available for you to chose form. Floor Lamps come in wood finishing, bronze, brass and other materials. You need only pick whichever one suits your interior finishing best.

When picking an ideal lamp consider its purpose. These lamps can be used to serve several diverse functions. Arc Floor Lamp can be twisted around to highlight an art piece, or to compliment a design style without taking up too much space. One of the design characteristics inherent in most Floor Lamps is that they consist of a wide base and narrow neck leading up to the bulb. This means they rarely take up too much space in the room.

Some lamps have inverted lamp shades that direct light upwards into the ceiling. These are ideal when you want a lamp to provide general lighting for the room, you can tweak this by using dimmer switches to allow you to set just the right amount of light for the room, be it a cozy evening at home, or a well lit party.

When picking a lamp for task oriented lighting, consider using a design with directional heads. This way you can angle the light towards the particular task area. These usually come in single or multi bulb versions. Consider the nature of the task you want to light up in choosing between these two options.

There are also several ultra modern designs available for the more fashion savvy individual. These come in various shapes and sizes and can be used to fulfill a purely decorative function. If that is your intention then pick one that matches your overall theme.

When it comes to floor lamps as with all other forms of lighting, design must meet needs. So, select a design that meets your home design and theme, while still satisfying your practical purposes. You can take your time in shopping for the perfect design, visit your local department store, electrical shop and even check for online sites that have lamps for sale. At the end of the day you have to live with what you chose, so it is worth the hustle.
