Assessing If a Tripod Floor Lamp is the Right Floor Lamp For You
Tons of tripod floor lamps are available for your choice both online and in your local lighting store. They all look beautiful and praiseworthy, but not all of them are suitable for your space. In fact, maybe a tripod floor lamp is not the best one for your room at all! So how do you evaluate if a tripod floor lamp is really what you need? And if you’re dead set on that three-legged floor lamp, which one should you pick? If you’re not sure, here are some guidelines you can use for your tripod floor lamp personal analysis:
Size and Height: Floor lamps vary in size and height. A traditional floor lamp’s height can generally range from four feet to six feet. However, tripod floor lamps go beyond the convention, so you may find tripod floor lamps in the market as low as three feet and as tall as nine feet. Just be prepared, as typically, a floor lamp’s height is proportional to its size (and its cost, too). Therefore, if you want a tall floor lamp, make sure it won’t look awkward both in your space and budget.
Location: Blocking foot traffic is the most common issue for tripod floor lamps. Therefore you usually won’t find them on hallways and entryways. Despite that, they’re popular additions to offices, studies, and bedrooms as two-in-one functional lighting and decor. Hence, if you want a floor lamp in a specific area, make sure to double-check whether a tripod floor lamp is the best option for that room before deciding on purchasing one.
Room Placement: Tripod floor lamps generally take a broader floor area. Therefore, as previously mentioned, you can’t put them in small gaps between your furniture. Also, for safety reasons, keep them away from areas where there is foot traffic, like beside the doorway. The ideal place is on the room’s corners, especially for large tripod floor lamps, as they won’t cover any of your potential room decors, making the space less empty while not hindering the other decors’ beauty.
Purpose: As per general knowledge, there are three primary purposes for lights in any room: used as ambient lighting, task lighting, and/or accent lighting. Tripod floor lamps are most sought-after as equipment that gives ample lighting in a room and lights that bring focused illumination to a specific area. So, if you want a lamp that can serve as a task light or general light, then consider getting a tripod floor lamp.
Style: Designers and artisans have already incorporated different art styles in tripod floor lamps. For a lamp with a metallic and rustic appeal, an industrial-styled tripod floor lamp is available online. For a minimalist and natural look, a Scandinavian-inspired tripod floor lamp might be what you’re looking for. Match the style that you want with the environment in which your future floor lamp will be located. For example, if you have a plain family room and are a fan of pop, adding a retro-style floor lamp with a bold colour can add a touch of fun and vitality to your space.
Material: A tripod floor lamp’s material can accentuate the mood and attractiveness of the lamp’s style. As some examples, those with wooden legs increases the organic appeal to Bohemian-styled lamps while those with shades made of glass maximize the charm of Art Deco- or French Provincial-designed tripod floor lamps. Keep in mind that each material has a specific maintenance procedure, so be sure to research how to properly care for your next tripod floor lamp.
Bulb: The brightness, heat, and colour temperature that your tripod floor lamp’s light emits are related to the quality, wattage, and bulb type that it needs. You can’t fit just any bulb in your tripod floor lamp’s socket; a GU10 light bulb won’t fit an E27 light socket. Furthermore, a bulb’s colour temperature largely influences the room’s atmosphere. Tripod floor lamps dedicated to task lighting generally needed brighter gleam than decorative or general lighting. LED bulbs can save more power and electricity than halogen bulbs and incandescent bulbs. With all these notes, consider carefully what light bulb to pick for your chosen tripod floor lamp’s socket. Or, if you haven’t decided on what tripod floor lamp to get, consider the available light bulbs in your local market, then narrow down your tripod floor lamp search with these onhand bulbs.
