Also, an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer, you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself, all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method, you can enjoy the elegance of antique design, and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
Energy costs are rising and finding a modern lamp with a good wattage range will help reduce your electric bill. Reading lights usually need to have at least 100 watts where accent lamps are fine to be 100 watts or lower. You may opt to go with modern lamps that allow compact fluorescent bulbs since these are much more efficient. Picking a light with more wattage is not really necessary for home use; but do not pick such a dim light that causes eye strain when reading or other activities.
Decorative floor lamps can be a wonderful stylish and elegant embellishment for your home and have power to bestow a very vivid luxurious charm on your interiors. There was a time when these floor lamps were integrated in royal courts of the kings and queens but today you can have them right next to your drawing room sofas to create the same royal expression. Although traditional interiors have more options to amalgamate such floor erected accent lighting ornaments but nowadays even contemporary home themes and designs seem to perfectly let these floor lamps fix into them.
Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp, you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays, floor lamps have to meet UL standards, where the bases are heavier, so that it won't easily tip over. However, ages ago, antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can't easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
When it comes to setting the mood or atmosphere in a room, not only does proper illumination add to the allure of your personal space, but also the sources of light. While table lamps and ceiling lights serve a functional purpose, floor lamps are expansive in the many different ways one may decorate their space and showcase their creativity. Whether you choose an antique selection to brighten your den or side with a traditional Victorian fringe design for the bedroom, the never-ending possibilities of a floor lamp shine through in the mind-boggling variety in choices.
