Floor Lamps - Decorative solution to add more light!
Floor lamps - Defined as a tall lamp with a base that stands
on the floor, a floor lamp can be plugged into any room in your
home. Lamps for floor areas provide a functional and ambient glow,
as well as being decorative fixtures that enhance home décor.

a necessary illuminating light source: even if it is just an intimate
nook that requires additional lighting.

Floor fixture lamp options
Just like table lamps, flooring lamps
can be added to any room of the house. You can buy matching contemporary,
Tiffany or antique style table and floor fixture lamps for a smooth,
unified look or buy floor area lamps separately. As floor type lamps
can illuminate light in several directions, select one that best
suits your home lighting needs. For example, soft, diffuse light
cast through a lamp shade or wall sconce is an excellent choice
for all-round general lighting. Torchiere lamps that throw light
down towards the floor are good for illuminating table tops, art
pieces or other wall decorations. For soft, general light, a halogen
torchiere is perfect: positioned on the floor in a room corner or
entry space, it can add a warm glow.
The importance of having enough light
Good and adequate lighting is important! Studies suggest that as
we get older, our eyes demand more light to read by, people in their
60's need 80% more light for reading than people in their 20's -so
don't skimp on adding lamps. Floor reading lamps with gooseneck
adjustable fixture arms can be very handy. If you want less light?
The floor fixture generally will include a full-range dimmer, making
it perfect for a variety of lighting tasks.
