If you built your home, then you likely spent a lot of time picking out the main light fixtures that would illuminate each room. You wanted to be sure that each space had adequate light, but you also knew that the ceiling fixture couldn’t be the only source of illumination. Lamps, sconces, and other fixtures can greatly enhance a room, both in terms of light and decor, and the team at Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale would love nothing more than to help you find the perfect options. In this post, we’ll look at table lamps, floor lamps, and desk lamps and how they can enrich your home!
When you think of table lamps, you likely think of fixtures placed on end tables in the living room, or on your bedside tables. These lamps are meant to provide accent lighting when you’re sitting on the couch, or task lighting when you’re reading before bed. They’re also meant to provide a decorative touch, as they can be an integral part of a room’s decor, and the color and texture can match other elements in the room. When all is said and done, you want your table lamps to improve the room through both their form and function.
Floor lamps, like their table counterparts, can be both functional and decorative, but due to their size, they can often serve as statement pieces within a room. If you have a tall, curved lamp that sits above your couch, it will likely be the first thing people see when they walk into the room. If you have a tall floor lamp with several lights on it in the corner, it will attract the eye to that part of the room, especially if the fixture is an interesting color. Floor lamps with downward-directed light can be great for reading, or you can focus the light on a seating area to make it more inviting.
Desk lamps are often found in the home office, and it makes the most sense since that’s where your desk is usually found. However, small desk lamp options can also be ideal for dressers, vanity tables, and front entry tables. They can be similar to small table lamps, but if you need direct light for tasks such as writing or working on the computer, it’s best to have a desk fixture that you can move and position as needed. If you just need accent lighting for a certain space, consider using a desk lamp with a shade to provide the perfect illumination.
When it comes down to it, all three types of lamps – table, floor, and desk – are best for your home. By placing them in the right spots, you can improve a space and make it more appealing than it would be if all you had was light from the main ceiling fixture. Lamps can also provide that perfect decorative touch within a room, and they can make many tasks such as reading or writing much easier.
