Floor lamps are a stylish way to accent a room's lighting. They ambient or task lighting to a room and like table lamps, are decorative and available in many styles. A torchiere is a floor lamp that directs all light upwards.
" Floor lamps can balance brightness in a room and complement the lighting from other luminaries." A common lighting mistake is to illuminate a large room or space with one ceiling light fixture. This normally creates unbalanced lighting in the room where there is over illumination and glare close to the light and as you go further from the light the room gets very dark. You can avoid this problem by supplementing light with the help of other sources of light like recessed cans, lamps, track lighting, and most easily with torchiere floor lamps.
