Three Steps to Choosing a Floor Lamp

Choosing a floor lamp doesn’t have to be a difficult process, but there are definitely some things you should consider before you run out and buy the cheapest lamp you can find. You want your new lamp to fill your room with bright light, while also offering a stylish base that accents the decor of the space. These three steps will get you on the right path.

1. Think About Placement

The first thing you should consider is where the lamp will be placed and whether or not it needs to direct light upwards or outwards. If all you need is simple ambient light to fill the room then a stationary stand in the corner should suffice. However, if you need light to be directed out throughout the space of a room, you will want to consider a floor lamp that has multiple articulating bulbs that can be precisely aimed.

2. Think About Your Lifestyle

Another important element in choosing a proper lamp is the type of lifestyle you live. For instance, a household with small children or rambunctious pets will definitely want a sturdy lamp that won’t be easily knocked over. A person who loves reading on the sofa in the evenings will want a gentle light that is bright enough for reading without straining the eyes. The light you purchase should help enhance your lifestyle, not impede it.

3. Think About Your Decor

The final step to choosing a great floor lamp is deciding what style you want the room to have. You can choose from sleek, ultra-modern options like the Vivatom Floor Lamp, or you can go for something a little more whimsical like the Bennet Arc Lamp or the Capella LED Lamp. No matter what style you have in mind, you are sure to find a floor lamp that fits well within your room. Think about this as you look at different styles of lamp shades and how the lamp disperses light through a space or gently changes its color.
