We are very used to placing them in the living room, but today there are designs of all kinds and for all tastes that allow us to integrate them into practically any corner of our home. They are suitable for the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, the office.
As you can see in the image gallery, the secret is knowing how to choose the right design and the best location; Sometimes utility will prevail, that is, I provided us with an extra light at some point in the room, however, at other times what we will seek is to complete the interior design project of a room, since classic floor lamps are a fundamental piece on numerous occasions, covering those dead spots in the decoration where we are not sure what to place, but we know that something is missing.
4 aspects to consider when choosing classic designer floor lamps
1.- Measurements and size
It is important to take into account the measurements, both height and width, and depth. There are models that have an arc shape, in these cases. We must take note of the height of our ceiling and what the curve of the lamp covers so that it does not crash. Let’s not forget to take into account how much the curve will go down, to avoid that nobody hits it. It is also necessary to look at the base, sometimes we want to place it in a small corner, we think that it fits us without problems and what finally fails us is the base, which may be excessively large for our space.
In short, as long as our floor lamp has an unconventional shape or design. We will have to analyze all these factors to locate the lamp that best suits our space.
2.- The distribution
Here depending on the environment, we want to create we can play with different types of lighting, for example placing a set of different types of classic lamps from the same series (wall lamp, floor lamp, and table lamp), another idea may be original to put two or even four-floor lamps that frame a certain area of the room, usually occurs in living rooms, to frame the sofa area. It will always depend on the environment we are looking for and the size of our stay.
3.- Design, color, and material
If we are looking for a fresh, casual, and youthful style, we can opt for giant flexors, extendable or industrial-inspired lamps, they are more modern and minimalist designs that can give our home a fun look. However, if we want a more classic or more sophisticated environment, we can opt for classic floor lamps with conventional fabric lampshades, in case our living room has a Nordic decoration, we can combine the classic lampshade with a base in a wooden tripod format. natural, typical of Scandinavian designs and with a more modern contribution. If we have chosen black and white textiles for our space. One way to achieve harmony is to choose designs in metallic finishes (silver, copper, gold) or black.
If we are going to place our lamp in a place where we are quite interested in this extra light. For example, if it is an office, a workplace or you simply want to create a reading area. We will have to take into account where your lamp emits the light, if it does it through the upper or lower area or if the lamp is adaptable and we can rotate it to focus on one side or the other.
