In a study or living room, a beautiful floor lamp can often make a corner look extra warm. Today, I will introduce to you how to choose a floor lamp, and by the way, I will talk about the three main points of use of floor lamps.
How to choose a floor lamp? The main points of floor lamp use are as follows
01 Look at the height of the floor lamp
When we are purchasing top-lit floor lamps, we must consider the height of the ceiling. Taking floor lamps with a height of 1.70 meters and 1.80 meters as an example, the ceiling height above 2.40 meters is the best. ,
If the ceiling is too low, the light can only be concentrated in a local area, which will make people feel that the light is too bright and not soft enough. At the same time, when using up-lighting floor lamps, the ceiling in the home should preferably be white or light-colored, and the material of the ceiling should preferably have a certain reflective effect.
02 Look at the details
The lower edge of the lampshade is preferably lower than the eyes, so that the eyes will not feel uncomfortable due to the irradiation of the light bulb. In addition, if the indoor light contrast is too large, it will increase the load on the eyes, so try to choose a floor lamp that can be dimmed.
When using, due to the concentration of direct lighting, it is best to avoid mirrors and glass products near the reading position to avoid discomfort caused by reflection.
03 Look at the design
We often see a lot of avant-garde and unique lamps on shopping websites. If we have time, we might as well go to the physical stores of these furniture stores to actually experience the lighting and workmanship.
For example, some modeling floor lamps can be said to be not used for lighting. They appear in the home and are more like a “light sculpture” in the environment.
When purchasing this type of floor lamp, consider its consistency with the overall style of the home. For example, a noble and classic standing lamp with heavy blood flower stone is not very suitable for the simple and modern style.
How to use the floor lamp? The three main points are as follows:
Read the installation drawings carefully and prepare common tools before installation. If the board is found to be damaged during inspection, you can contact the dealer for replacement.
Generally, the floor lamp should have a cast iron chassis, which is slightly smaller than the surface base. The order of parts from bottom to top should be: chassis fastening nut, cast iron chassis, base, lamp pole, lamp holder, lampshade, plastic fastener, light bulb.
02 Clean up
For normal cleaning, use a clean feather duster to gently remove the dust. If it is a non-metal floor lamp, you can wipe it with a damp cloth, and be careful not to wipe the power cord; if it is a metal lamp, you can wipe it with a dry cloth, and do not touch it with water.
The key step in the maintenance of floor lamps is moisture-proof. No matter where it is placed in the living room, a moisture-proof lampshade should be installed to prevent moisture intrusion and cause rust damage or leakage and short circuit of the lamps.
Try not to switch on and off frequently when using the lighting, because the current through the filament is greater than the current during normal operation at the moment when the lighting is frequently started, causing the temperature of the filament to rise sharply to accelerate the sublimation, which will greatly reduce its service life.
The above is the point of how to choose a floor lamp and the use of floor lamp introduced by Xiaobian. I hope it can be helpful to you.
