The very first question that comes into our mind when we are talking about a floor lamp is – how you would like to place it. You might want to have a TV with an attached console table, so when you put a floor lamp next to a TV you can actually place the lamp in front of it. This way you don’t need to remove and reattach the TV after you’ve unplugged it. It would be much easier if you could just place the floor lamp on its own pedestal and just fix it there.
Another option would be to simply place the floor lamp beside a sofa or bed. When it’s place next to the sofa or bed, the whole room will be illuminated by the light. This may give you a brighter picture and make you feel more relaxed, but it will also make it harder for you to see where the back of the sofa or bed is because you won’t be able to see the bottom when you lean your back against it. If you like to read while you’re watching TV, then this may not be a problem for you. However if you like to play games and listen to music in your room, then this can be a problem.
To solve this problem, you can place floor lamps beside couches and chairs. This will make it easier for you to see where you’re sitting and what’s behind you. However, you should also make sure that the couches and chairs you use are strong enough to hold the floor lamp. Some types are built in the base and don’t come with feet. If they do, then the base can easily be ruined.
You may also find that you can’t put a floor lamp next to a desk because the light from it may reflect off of the computer keyboard. One way to solve this is to hang a coat or a sweater over the desk. When you don’t need the light, you just fold the sweater or coat up and store it elsewhere. Another solution is to place a tablecloth on the table where the lamp is placed. The tablecloth will help diffuse the light.
Many people find that they can’t put a floor lamp next to a computer desk because the light from it may glare on the screen. If this is the case for you, then you can buy a shade that goes with your desk lamp. These shades are usually translucent and have a plastic laminate covering. This material also prevents glare from reflecting off the screen. However, there isn’t much you can do about the fact that the light from your computer screen may shine through the shade.
You can put a floor lamp next to a desk if you plan properly. First, decide where you want to put it. Next, measure where you want it to go. Then, buy the most appropriate light bulb for it and place it where you know it will be noticeable. Finally, mount the fixture and enjoy your new lighting.
