Measure Up Your Lighting
Floor lamp fixtures and lampshades need to be properly measured so you know they will fit perfectly in your home. Avoid eyeballing floor lamp sizes and shapes. Instead, measure the fixture so you know where it could fit in your home before you buy it.
You need to think about the weight of a floor lamp as well. High-traffic areas of your home should have heavier and sturdier fixtures to avoid breakage or being knocked over. However, in low-traffic areas, lighter, more delicate floor lamps can add the perfect touch to the space.
