The floor lamp is generally composed of a lampshade, a bracket and a base.It is often used for partial lighting, and now it has become an indispensable highlight in home decoration.
1. Features of the floor lamp
Enhance the brightness of illuminating: Floor lamps can effectively enhance the light in partial areas and create an quiet atmosphere. If the lighting method of the floor lamp is directly projected downward, it is suitable for reading,making up. If it is indirect lighting, the overall light can be adjusted. The underside of the lampshade of the floor lamp should be more than 1.8 meters above the ground.
Convenient to move: Floor lamps are not like chandeliers or ceiling lamps. They are all fixed to the ceiling and cannot be moved at all. The floor lamp is very convenient compared to the light, as long as the wire is long enough, wherever you want to put it. The floor lamp is very light and even children can move.
Easy to maintain: the maintenance of the floor lamp is very convenient, especially the wrought iron floor lamp, but the maintenance of the rattan floor lamp is relatively difficult. Chandelier cleaning is so tiring, you have to climb to such a high place to disassemble and clean it. Re-installing is time consuming and laborious. The floor lamp has a simple structure. If you really have a problem, you can fix it with a screwdriver.

Direct-lighting floor lamp
The light is concentrated, the local effect is obvious, and the influence on the surrounding area is small. The light from the lamp spreads down on the ceiling and spreads evenly throughout the room. This “indirect” lighting method, the light is softer, and the stimulation to the human eye can also relax people’s mood to a certain extent. The use of such luminaries is quite common in some modern minimalist home designs that are now popular.
Top-mounted floor lamp
With the ceiling-lit floor lamp, the ceiling in the home is preferably white or light, and the ceiling material preferably has a certain reflective effect. In this case, the light is much softer, the range of influence is larger, and the lighting effect of the bottom light can be achieved.

3. The choice of floor lamp
Most floor lamps are white, and some owners will find some floor lamps look brighter when they choose lamps, while others will be darker, some will be white, some will be purple or blue, which is due to the light source. Light source effect and color temperature are different, some light sources produced by small manufacturers have low light efficiency, but in order to make customers look brighter, the color temperature is higher, so it looks brighter, actually not really bright. It is just the illusion of the human eye. For a long time, the vision will become worse and worse in this environment.
A：only a light, and then stand under the lamp to read, if it looks clear and bright, it means that the light source is better, the light effect is high, if it is not clear, it is bad
B： a simpler method is to extend the heart of the hand to the side of the light source to see the color of the palm. If it is rosy, it means that the color temperature is just right, and the color rendering is good. If the heart is blue or purple, the color temperature is too high.
