There is no doubt that proper lighting in a room is very important, regardless of whether the room is used for sleeping, relaxation, work, or pursuing favorite hobbies. No matter what the task, activity or purpose, good lighting design can add to the functionality of a room, as well as to the overall design and decor by creating and enhancing moods with light. Floor lamps have a great advantage over many other types of fixtures and lamps because they are portable.
With many types of lighting fixtures, such as recessed lights, chandeliers, wall lamps, and sconces, the lighting is permanently in place once the fixture has been installed. Even in the case of track lighting, which is so popular because it is permanent lighting that is still adjustable, there are still limitations. In addition, there is the additional cost and hassle involved in properly installing these modern fixtures, which often requires the expertise of an electrician or at the very least a handy and experienced do-it-yourselfer.
One of the great things about floor lamps is that they can easily be moved to different areas of a room and can augment the lighting exactly where it is needed the most. With a floor one, a dark corner can be brightened quickly without worrying about having the right furniture to set it on, such as you would need if using table ones to boost the lighting.
