Overall having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages in the sense that it provides a touch of romance class and sophistication to any home. However aside from it being very expensive it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only instead of functionality. So in buying a floor lamp ask yourself what you need it for. If you`re not much concerned with lighting and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
Lamps can be used in any room in your home and can serve a variety of functions. Contemporary lamps can add both functionality and beauty to any room in your home while enhancing your decor and your own sense of style. However there are some things you need to consider when shopping for one or more.
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.
Modern floor lamps are made from a variety of materials and it is a good idea to get a light that will complement your current furnishings. Sometimes this means picking a floor lamp that uses the same materials as your furniture while other decors give great flexibility in the material that matches. Remember that shopping for a modern floor lamp or any other home decor should be a rewarding & exciting experience you just need to take your time.
