Buying Guide For Floor Lamps
Floor lamps can be defined as self- supporting and lighting fixtures. These are most often used as reading lamps and also as auxiliary light sources in a particular office space or living rooms. Your lighting needs, room design and budget are important considerations when buying the floor lamps. A torchiere style floor lamp, with its narrow base and flared shade, is one of the most common and popular styles of floor lamps. Many torchieres are halogen lamps. Although often more expensive than regular incandescent bulbs, halogen light bulbs are energy-efficient and offer a clean, clear light. Then, budget is a big consideration when buying the floor lamps. Even one or two very inexpensive floor lamps can liven up a dorm room or small apartment while adding needed light. For bigger budgets, designer floor lamps or Tiffany-style stained glass floor lamps may be appealing.
Consider adding floor lamps to a dark basement recreation room, or any area in your home that could use extra light and style. A floor lamp makes a statement because it is tall and breaks up the monotony of low pieces of furniture such as sofas and tables. Whether standing alone in a corner or together in pairs flanking another piece of furniture, floor lamps add pizazz as well as light to living spaces.
