There are many electronic devices in the market today that can be used to illuminate your house in the most elegant way. Anything from small and light LED lights to large and heavy chandeliers are available across the stores. Then there are another wide range of shapes, sizes, designs and colors they come in. After that we can choose from how we want the light to be placed, whether to hang it from the ceiling, or on the wall, or if you want to place it on a table or floor. When furnishing a part like the entryway of a house, we will want to design it in such a way that it is inviting. For such functions, floor lamps are highly recommended.
Types of floor lamps
There are many kinds of floor lamps like a torchiere, console lamp, tree floor lamp, arch lamp, and adjustable floor lamps, but all follow one basic design – it has a tall and thin base which is four to six feet tall and carries the lighting part at the top. It can be a permanent top or the kind of light that comes with shades. Such floor lamps are a great choice for corners and other spaces that require more light like near the sofa or book shelves.
The shades as you already know can be changed. Among the various styles of shades in the market, large lamp shades for floor lamps are highly preferred. The main reason for that is floor lamps can be an important source of light rather than just as a decorative item, and the small shades on top of long rod looks rather off for most people. The bigger shades will also make the light appear brighter and much more appealing. The designs on the shades on a bigger scale and when placed near a wall with make it look much more exquisite when turned on. In other cases, if you are using a adjustable floor lamp for just a desired space like across a table or sofa, large dark shades can help direct the light to just that space keeping the rest of the room untouched.
Materials of Shades
The large lamp shades for floor lamps can also vary from modern to antique depending on the design of the lamp. The shades are made in many shapes like cylinder, cone, square, and pyramid and can be made using many fabrics like silk, paper, feather, burlap, string, straw wood etc.
