Often overlooked during the mad dash of decorating a new home, floor lamps are an elegant way to add lighting to any room. There is no truer path to heartache than choosing a floor lamp as an afterthought. Check out our selection of floor lamps and keep these four important tips in mind to craft a vibrantly lighted space:

1. Remember: Floor lamps are décor, too.

Floor lamps can provide much-needed visual flair and be the decorative focal point in an open lounge or living room space. When your floor lamp is competing with copious amounts of overhead lighting, go for a look that’s guaranteed to catch the eye, like a Tiffany floor lamp that emanates rich jewel tones through flawless stained glass.

2. Consider background vs. foreground décor.

It’s important to consider the space and the intended use for each floor lamp. Floor lamps with translucent shades are the way to go in dining rooms and other areas that require rich light. Even so, you may want to ease the tone or use a dimmable floor lamp in the dining area so you can keep the focus on your family and the food. A warm, ambient floor lamp like the Kichler “Clayton” is a surefire choice for a classic look.

3. Never sacrifice function for form.

For task lighting in reading and activity areas, directional overhead lighting is crucial to illuminate the necessary spaces. Don’t settle for accent lighting with small table lamps – you can try a modern floor lamp with a sleek finish that delivers a bold pool of light. You can pair elegant design with maximum functionality in these spaces with options such as the "Natural Spectrum" floor lamp by Verilux.

4. Boldly use sleek and modern design.

More innovative contemporary floor-lamp options are emerging as do-it-yourself homeowners take charge of their interior design. Current trends lean toward simple, narrow bases with sharp, polygonal shades. With that in mind, you can’t go wrong with this floor lamp by Pablo Designs, an absolute stunner that uses modern color-tinged dual lighting sources to provide practicality and whimsy to the hippest modern homes.

No matter what your choice, floor lamps add the spice to your space. Choose wisely, and have fun!

The top-selling "Black Spider" from Bernards can transport you back to the 60s while basking you and your bell-bottomed guests in a way groovier light.

Adesso Lighting's "Cabaret" floor lamp is a fan favorite and can give any room a sultry, Parisian market feel.
