Floor lamps fill a role between table lamps and wall lights. More versatile than either of the other two, a floor lamp can be placed anywhere in a room and stands completely independently. Read More...
There are three things a floor lamp can achieve:
- It can provide more light in a particular area of a room - It can provide a softer light than general purpose lighting - It can enhance and beautify the room
When the intention is simply to provide a less intense light than your main lighting on the ceiling, a floor lamp will do well when placed in a corner (also the safest place for a floor lamp), and it is best to choose designs with a heavy shade in this case.
To give very focused light, it's better to choose designs that are adjustable and which can place light directly over the area you want to illuminate.
For those situations where the purpose of the lamp is mainly decorative, you can choose more ornate designs, with less concern about the practicalities of lighting. Of course many lamps look best when they're functioning, so you'll want to be sure that the light your chosen lamp creates is pleasant.
