When you are outfitting the rooms in your home with lighting, it is likely you will require at least one floor lamp.
Floor lamps not only provide illumination for your space, but they can also make an impact on the overall mood and decor in your home. Floor lamps can be functional and decorative at the same time. They are large pieces of furniture, so considering how they will complement your room is important.
When you select your lamp, be sure to find one in a style that will blend with the other pieces of furniture in the room. Whether your house is modern, traditional, rustic, or contemporary, there is sure to be a floor lamp option that will work perfectly in your space. Think about utilizing your floor lamps as pieces of art or as interesting accents for your room!
Floor lamps are typically considered to be task lighting, so placement is essential. Floor lamps can be used to bring light to corner spaces in a room. Those areas that would normally be dark can be illuminated with the help of a floor lamp.

Floor lamps can also be useful when set up near reading areas, placed to the side of an armchair or sofa. Floor lamps will provide more light than a table lamp, so they are a great solution if you need to add brightness overall to a room.
Another great reason to utilize floor lamps is because they can provide light for a space that is tighter in nature. You might be working with an area that does not have room for a small table to place a lamp on top of. Instead of leaving that space dark, the solution could be a floor lamp. It will fit in the tight location and provide much needed light to the area!
