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.
