When thinking about doing up a room, we often consider lighting later on in the process – much later than say, painting, and the other ‘fun’ parts of decorating. Lighting is more functional in its purpose, sure, but that doesn’t mean that shopping for lighting has to be dull or that the lighting you choose can’t be a reflection of your tastes in the same way a fresh lick of paint is. There are ceiling lights, wall lights, table lamps and of course floor lamps. The latter option is where we think it’s easiest for lighting to be both functional and stylish because they can occupy so much space in a room, so there’s opportunity to invest in the perfect statement piece.
They’re usually special buys too as they don’t need to be replaced regularly (and they tend to come with a higher price tag anyway, so who would want to?). So when investing in one, it’s worth shopping around – thankfully, we’ve made that part a little bit easier.
In fact, there are so many different styles available that you can make a floor lamp one of the defining features of a room. This industrial looking floor lamp will be sure to get comments (for when you’re allowed guests again) while those looking to optimise on space will like this lamp with small built in shelves to display photos or plants.
