Modern floor lamps are available in a wide range, including minimalist design. In modern times, floor lamps come in every conceivable design and are very practical for a variety of uses.
Guidelines for the use of floor lamps
Different rooms need different styles of floor lamps. In the living rooms, a modern floor lamp that channels light upwards (called torch style) is best, as it subtly illuminates the area. Place these lamps in dark corners. They should not be placed in areas where people walk so much. In an office or other space that needs focus and work lighting, floor lamps with movable arms can be used. When buying such lamps, make sure that the main body and arms are adjustable up and down so that they are at the right height and the perfect angle for you.
Floor lamps in apartments
A modern floor lamp is an ideal choice for apartments, as it does not need to be drilled into walls or ceilings for installation. In addition, it is easy to take the floor lamp if you move home, unlike hanging lamps. They also do not take up space on a side table or desk.
Components in a modern floor lamp
The base is an important part of the floor lamp because it gives the lamp stability. A floor lamp that has a heavy and wide base will be more stable than one that has a light and small base. Some modern floor lamps have bright, thin bases. It is better to think twice before buying such lamps. The neck is the part of the floor lamp that has a plastic or metal tube that runs up and carries the electrical wires that are connected to the light bulb. Some necks are curved, while others are straight. On some floor lamps, there is more than one arm that allows the user to change the position of the lamps as needed. The shade of the floor lamp is another component that is necessary, as most people do not want very bright light. There are shades in Tiffany style (stained glass) and fabric shades that are available in different colors and prints. The choice of shade depends on how much light you want from the light. The darker the shadow, the less light is emitted. In addition to these essential features, many modern floor lamps have accessories such as round table tops attached to the neck and pull switches.
