How a Wood Floor Lamp Can Illuminate the Beauty Of Hardwood Floors
The lighting style chosen for a room can really serve to compliment unique architectural and decorative features of a home while adding to its overall aesthetic and comfort. Likewise, choosing the correct lighting for oddly shaped or small rooms can serve to create the illusion of more space and depth. For example, using tract lighting in a room with high ceilings and crown moldings can highlight these details nicely, adding to the illusion of space. Or, using table top tiffany lamps in a room with dark, wood paneled walls may create a warm, quasi library/ museum motif. Factors to be considered while choosing a room’s lighting include functionality and purpose of the room, wall color, overall style and type of flooring.
Hardwood floors for example, create a spacious, elegant look which can be capitalized on by using the correct lighting. A wood floor lamp will illuminate a room without occupying much needed table space and surface area. These space saving lamps are free standing and have a protective coating, such as felt, on the base to prevent scratches or damages to the wood’s surface. Placing a wood floor lamp in a corner will take advantage of any reflective qualities of the walls and serve to light a good portion of the room.
A wood floor lamp can be created by customizing an ordinary floor lamp so it will protect your hardwood floor. Using small coasters and an epoxy, the base of the lamp will be slightly elevated off the floor, lessening the chance of fading or discoloration. Likewise, cutting a piece of felt to size and gluing it to the base will create a wood floor lamp which won’t scratch your floors and allows for easy moving while cleaning.
A wood floor lamp selection can be found at most lighting retailers, as well as department stores and home improvement warehouse stores.
