A well-placed floor lamp can make a huge impact on the ambience of a room. These tall lights can illuminate dark corners and warm up the overall tone of a room. Floor lamps also make great task lights, whether for reading or more precise work. When paired with table and ceiling lights, floor lamps add visual interest and layers to the room as well.

What style of floor lamp should I choose?

Your top choice will depend on the style of your room as well as the function you want your lamp to perform. A more traditional-style room could have a torchiere floor lamp, a chandelier floor lamp, or even a Tiffany-style floor lamp. If your style is more modern, a tripod floor lamp or an arc floor lamp will complement the room nicely. While searching, pay attention to the style of the lampshades and bulb, as these can also make a huge difference. A clever way to mix and match your lamps is to mix bases and match shades.

How tall should my floor lamps be?

When deciding on height, consider where your light will be placed in the room and the function you’d like it to have, plus the size of your furniture. A reading light shouldn’t extend too far up, whereas a light intended to help brighten a large corner or small room will need to be a bit taller. You also don’t want your new lamps to overpower your furniture or be in the way of everyday traffic.

Where should I place my floor lamp?

Keep in mind where your available electrical outlets are as well as the layout of your furniture. Avoid stringing the electrical cord across the room — it can become a tripping and fire hazard, plus it can make your space look unfinished. If you choose an arc lamp, be sure to position it in the corner so anyone taking a seat doesn’t bump his or her head. Smaller floor lamps are easier to place along walls or the edges of furniture.
