Mix and Match Color Bulbs to Match Lampshades. The unique part of purchasing a floor lamp is that you may change lampshades to the base of your favorite lamp just as you can match different colored light bulbs to create varying effects within a room. Depending on the time of day and other outside factors various lampshade colors transform light into an array of shades but red blue green and even yellow lights can establish the atmosphere into a controlled setting such as a romantic environment to a room set aside for contemplation withdrawal or reflection.
Floor lamps are no longer just something you find at your Grandma`s house collecting dust but are now used in any contemporary traditional or vintage setting at home or office. True some styles can be mixed and matched like adding a beautifully designed Tiffany floor lamp to a moderately contemporary decor. But reverse that idea and add a contemporary lamp to a Victorian style room and you`ll get a "yikes" reaction from guest if only in their minds. Look through magazines or visit a furniture store to check out how they do it.
Some floor lamps are fashioned with a specific art movement in mind such as colorful Art Deco pieces. Artists may also hand craft their samples and hand paint customized detailing on the outside of the shade to add characteristic touches for home and/or office use.
Knowing the goal of the lighting determines where and just how you put it and perhaps just how much you pay to buy. Do you really need light in a corner for accent then think of a more ornate colorful shade? Do you want a soft light is a baby`s room or soft light in a conversational sitting area then consider a torchiere style with the shade turned upward. Needless to say for reading go for a floor lamp that allows two to three light bulbs with a shade turned down. Remember the room balance in all of this. You can use the placement to balance the area for those who have other tall large furniture pieces on an opposite wall.
