Floor lamps are essential in any home. They are a great way to take up some floor space and brighten up dark corners. And even though these are the most basic functions of floor lamps, they have the potential to do so much more than that! With so many different styles of floor lamps out there, you are bound to find some that fit your style and work for your family:
Arc Floor Lamps
Arc floor lamps are great if you are looking for a statement piece that fits well into a contemporary space. Arc floor lamps come in a lot of designs and styles. They can feature totally curved lines or two to three straight lines that combine together before the light is attached. There are huge arc floor lamps that are very tall and high-profile. There are also small arc floor lamps that can fit in the smallest of spaces. So depending on your overall style and needs, you can definitely find the perfect arc floor lamp that your family will love.
Tiffany Floor Lamps
If you have a more classic or traditional style, you are going to love Tiffany floor lamps. Tiffany floor lamps feature a beautiful stained glass shade. This style goes all the way back to the early 1900s! That being said, Tiffany floor lamps don’t have to look like they belong in the 20th century. In fact, the classic stained glass feature of traditional Tiffany lamps can be combined with more modern features like an adjustable arm, different tiers of lights, or using different hardware like brushed nickel or silver instead of the usual antique bronze finish. In any case, a Tiffany floor lamp is a great way to add light and color to your space thanks to the incredible stained glass features.
Adjustable Floor Lamps
Speaking of adjustable arms, adjustable floor lamps are versatile pieces that each member of your family can use differently. It’s a great way to provide task lighting in a room that can help provide enough light for tasks like reading, writing, or even game night! Depending on the activity, you can easily adjust the height or the direction of the light on these handy lamps to fit any occasion or audience.
Column Floor Lamps
Column floor lamps feature appealing clean and straight lines that are ideal for any modern space. If you are looking for a bold piece that is bound to catch your eye, consider a rectangular floor lamp with a 3-D post that’s either clear or features a cool design. If you are looking for something more functional, there are column floor lamps that feature multiple small shelves along with a light feature so that you can get a better handle on organization and lighting at the same time!
Tree Floor Lamps
We love tree floor lamps because they offer multiple different light sources all within the same piece! A lot of these types of lamps feature three different lights – some of which are adjustable so that you can point them in the specific direction that needs brightening. Maybe that’s a dark corner, or maybe it’s towards your favorite reading chair. In any case, if you are looking for a lot of light that’s customizable and adjustable, then tree floor lamps are a great fit.
Tripod Floor Lamps
Tripod floor lamps are a great option if you are looking for a floor lamp that’s a bit more solid. Maybe you have kids or need a lamp in a high traffic area. In any case, since these lamps have three solid legs instead of one on top of a small base, they are going to be able to generally withstand bumps better than their traditional alternatives. Even though their legs may take up more surface area on your floor, it’s definitely worth it to have the peace of mind that your lamp isn’t likely to topple over thanks to the slightest bump.
Floor Lamps With a Tray Table
Last but not least we have floor lamps with a built-in tray table. If you’ve never seen these before, prepare to be amazed! Floor lamps with tray tables can basically look like an end table combined with a table lamp. Or they can look like you slid a glass disc onto a typical floor lamp. In any case, these are great if you are looking for light and surface area for your living room. not only that but the best floor lamps have a tray table with a built-in USB port or even an actual power outlet so that you can charge your phone and simply leave it there until it’s finished. Finally, there’s no need to go moving furniture around to find outlets on the walls around the room!
Now it’s time to get shopping! Make sure to keep these types of lamps in mind and consider what they bring to the table (sometimes literally) so that you can buy the perfect piece that your whole family will love.
