It is always possible to tell a great deal about someone from the design and furnishings of their home. We will decorate and impart our personal favorites to the place where we live. These traits manifest themselves from the selection and color of our furniture and even extend to the smallest details such as our lighting systems and appliances.We all have the urge to create artistic spaces that are functional as well as cozy. One method that sometimes is overlooked is the lighting system can create a variety of personal statements. This can be done with the use of ambient lighting, floor lamps, and wall scones.
The use of floor lamps is the perfect example of using a system to create different moods and artistic impression. The use of the floor lamp defies the use of traditional lighting that is attached to a solid surface. There is no clear advantage or functions that can be found with the use of a floor lamp. The lamp simply changes the mood and the design of the room.
As with any lighting system, it is important to determine the effect that you are trying to convey. The question that must be answered first is where do floor lamps work best? The answer depends on several factors. If there is artwork or special decorations that are present at eye level, the use of floor lamps may be just the ticket. This type of lighting works well in this kind of environment. An example of the creative use of a floor lamp would be having some type of floral arrangement sitting on a low-level glass end table or even a coffee table.
How the lamp is positioned, the intensity of the light and the focus of the lamp are all factors that can be decided by someone to show off their creativity, For this reason, dining rooms, living rooms, hallways, and even bedrooms are some of the prime areas for creating unique lighting zones and spaces.
There are some major drawbacks when using floor lamps. The installation can be a serious problem. The use of floor lamps that use external cords presents a problem with the cords lying exposed on the floor. This becomes a serious trip hazard. If the lamps use cords that are hidden the wire installation should be done by a professional.
Because of the installation problems you really should do some research so you are as sure as possible before starting the project. You certainly do not want to do the poor and then create a fire hazard in your home.
Floor lamps can be used in partially open spaces too. They are perfect for use in spaces such as a gazebo or patio. The lamp will provide sufficient low-level lighting that is perfect for that peaceful summer evening. They provide an artistic quality that set the boundaries of certain areas with a quiet and functional quality.
