Tips for decorating with floor lamps

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of furnishing a home or a working environment.
Light, when it arrives correctly on objects or in our eyes, highlights the focal points of a room , but it also helps to create a certain atmosphere for that space, especially if it is a bedroom or living room.
In a reading area or in a kitchen, for example, brighter lighting is needed, which gives an energetic tone to the environment. Bedrooms, living rooms and lounges are more suitable for a soft lighting style.
In all of this, here are some suggestions if you love floor lamps . Are you wondering how to use floor lamps to emphasize your decor? Here are 5 tips!

1 - Use floor lamps as accessories

If you love this type of light, think of your choice of floor lamp as an important accessory. Use the colors and style of your floor lamp to complement the main theme of your decor.
The floor lamps can become an element of style that defines the tones of a living room or bedroom even better. Use your floor lamp to highlight a classic style, a shade of colour, a glamorous element - perhaps with metallic or crystal lamps!

You can choose a sleek, monochromatic design for a more modern look, or a traditional, floral or pleated style for a classic décor.
Remember that floor lamps can create a timeless style, always on trend like the England floor lamps .

2 - Choose the right size lampshade

A floor lamp consists of an upper part that must be of the perfect size. A lampshade that is too large in relation to the style and size of the lamp holder can look out of place in a small room.
A floor lamp should have a balanced look, especially if it's an eye-catching model, perhaps with crystals. Like the Circles 4-light floor lamp , which emits a lot of light and reverberations of the asfur crystals capable of further expanding the perception of light.

3 - Decide how much light you need in a space

Before choosing a floor lamp, you need to understand if you are placing your light in a room suitable for working or reading, or to give a different lighting angle in a relaxing environment.
In the first case, you will need a lampshade that allows light to flow into the room. For bedrooms or relaxing spaces such as the living room, you can look for an effect between shadow and dull light. For bedrooms, the corner furthest from the bed may be the best for a restful result.

For environments with a lot of activity and need for light, you need to place the floor lamp in an area where it can give off more light, and at the right height.

Always choose the right angle for your floor lamp - examine the room and decide which area is suitable to be illuminated.

4 - One or two floor lamps?

If the space is large enough, it can accommodate two floor lamps, and in this case we recommend placing them in opposite corners of the room if possible.

This is possible because a lamp can be dwarfed by a large and spacious area, so its 'double' could create an interesting effect. In some cases, even replace the chandelier.
When you want to be daring with combinations, for a lively and contemporary decor, there are also colored floor lamps like our Squares, which can be combined for similar or opposite tones.

Alternatively, you can combine floor lamps with table lamps in your decor: especially in rooms that require ample lighting, it can be elegant and practical to combine these two solutions.
Floor lamps and table lamps allow multiple lighting options in a space, with different angles of light.
A side table lamp can look great next to a reading nook, while a floor lamp is perfect for entertaining guests next to a sofa.

5 - Associate the lampshade with the base and the height

When pairing a floor lamp with a base, one possible style rule is to choose a lampshade that mimics the shape of the base of the lamp itself .

If you have a square base, keep the square or rectangular shape. A round or oval-shaped lampshade works well with a round base, while a cylindrical lampshade works well with a tall, thin base. On the contrary, you can choose the "disagreement", creating similar style details around the square base and the round lampshade...

We also recommend evaluating the width of the lampshade, which should be around 30%-40% of the height of the floor lamp. A proportion that between shape and height-width ratios can help maintain harmony in the environment.
For example, a 170cm lamp could have a 50cm shade.
