First you want to decide where you want to put lights and what kind of lighting you will utilize. There are modern floor lamps, desk lamps, accent lamps and more to choose from. Space and light brightness are the two biggest functional factors when picking a great modern lamp. Depending on the intended use for the lamp will decide if a modern accent lamp with low light for decoration will be suitable or if a bright contemporary desk lamp or floor lamp is needed for reading. Another important factor is the power consumption of the contemporary lamp.
For the power. Mainly, a floor lamp is used to highlight pieces of art or important pieces inside a room. But if your plan involves illuminating the entire room, purchase a lamp that utilizes higher power bulbs. In this way, you can achieve brighter light compared to lower power bulbs. Just remember to be very careful in using high wattage bulbs and never use one that is not recommended for the lamp. It is always advised to do your research beforehand so you will be able to buy a lamp that is able to accommodate the kind of lighting you want rather than fixing up a used floor lamp and risking potential hazards.
For the setting. In deciding where you want to position your floor lamp, you should always regard all the surrounding furnishings inside a particular space. The lamp should not be placed in an open area where children might happen to trip on them and get hurt. Try maximizing the place by choosing a floor lamp that takes up little floor space. It will also be more appealing if you match the lamp with the interior and theme of the whole room.
Floor lamps such as tiffany floor lamps can offer a higher level of illumination compared to the more popular table lamps. Below are some of the guidelines you need to follow when shopping for floor lamps.
Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total).
Sturdiness. Today's floor lamps, such as Tiffany stained glass floor lamps, are much sturdier than floor lamps of the past. For example, in the past, floor lamps were notorious for tipping over easily, thus creating a fire hazard. However, today's floor lamps must meet something called the UL "tipability standard," requiring their bases to be heavy enough.
