Eva Gearhart. Floor Lamps. January 12th , 2018.
The Shaded Lamp. This is a pretty standard lamp. However, the main difference is that it has a shade that has modern lines or a more contemporary shape. The shade can be plain, usually white, or a fancier colored or patterned one. Usually the plain white shade will come with the lamp, where you can then buy upgraded shades for it at another time.
The Room In Which The Floor Lamp Will Be Placed. One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child`s playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
Another good thing to consider is the amount of energy your lamp will use. Electricity costs are higher than ever and every thing you can do to lower your energy bill will be very beneficial. If your lamp is just for decoration and not required to light large areas than you should consider buying a lower watt light bulb to put in this lamp. The latest trend in modern floor lamps has been to have softer light bulbs that just emit a faint glow. If your are using this lamp for reading or for lighting an area than you will want to consider buying a high watt light bulb that has the power to light a large area. Usually a reading floor lamp will require a light bulb of at least 120 watts but other lamps can have bulbs well below 120. Also I recommend that your go with a compact fluorescent light bulb as these are much more energy efficient and will last much loner than a normal light bulb.
Energy Usage of Home Decoration Lamp. This is most often the overlooked component while shopping for a home floor lamp. Often people look for lamp with the highest wattage, yet not realizing the amount of electricity it consumed. A difference of 15W is easily able to add a couple dollars to your bills and more if you switched it on for long periods.
