Floor Lamp Buying Made Easy

A floor lamp can be a great lighting fixture and can be used for both functional and decorative purposes. However, choosing the right light for your needs can be a little tricky, especially if you haven't done it before. Fortunately, considering a couple of things before buying a floor lamp will ensure you will get one that meets your needs and expectations. So, what are the things you should consider? Use, style and size.
First and most important thing you should consider before buying a floor light is its use. Buying a light for decorative purposes is completely different from buying it for functional purposes because you focus your attention on totally different factors. So, what will be the light's main job? What type of lighting do you require? Accent, ambient, task or area lighting? Once you figured it out you can match a light type to your needs. Each type is designed for specific tasks. The following main types of floor lights are available on the market today: torchiere, console, arc, tree, tray, tower, down bridge and gooseneck lights. Torchiere lights are great for ambient lighting, console and tray lamps work best in small areas and arc, tree, gooseneck and down bridge lamps are ideal for specific tasks like reading. So, match the light type for your specific needs for best results.
Ponder these questions: in what room will you place the light? What is the furniture style in the room? Contemporary, Rustic, Antique, Modern, Art Deco, Country? What materials are the furniture made of? Metal, glass, wood, plastic? What are the colors of the walls in the room and the furniture? If, for example, you have a contemporary style furniture at home, you want to get a contemporary style light like spiral, tower or arc floor lamp. And, if you have antique style furniture at home, a solid wood floor lamp may be a good option.
You should carefully consider the size of the room in which you will place the floor light. In a big room, a low lamp may appear lost and in a small room a high lamp may appear overwhelming. Think about relativity when deciding the size of the light. You should not only take into account the height of the room but also its width. If the room is wide you should get a wide-looking lamp and if the room is narrow you should get a slim-looking lamp. Considering the three factors; use, style and size will greatly increase your chances of getting the right floor light. However, it won't help you avoid lights that have some constructional defects and that can be a nuisance during operation. Therefore, wherever possible, check online reviews from people, that have bought the floor lamp and have been using it for some time, before making a purchase.
