Therefore, choosing a beautiful and practical floor lamp is a basic task when arranging home light sources.
Classification of floor lamps
When buying floor lamps, you must first make a basic classification of the floor lamps on the market. Floor lamps are usually divided into top-lit floor lamps and direct-lit floor lamps.
Top-lit floor lamp: The light of the lamp shines on the ceiling and then diffuses, evenly spreading indoors. This “indirect” lighting method is softer in light, less irritating to the human eye, and relaxing to a certain extent. In some modern minimalist home designs that are popular now, the use of such lamps is quite common.
Direct-lit floor lamp: Similar to a table lamp, the light is concentrated. It can be used as the main light source in a small area after the main light source is turned off, or it can be used as a light source for night reading.

Most ceiling lights are white light. From the perspective of white light, some owners will find how some of the ceiling lights look brighter, while others are darker, some are white, and some are purple or blue. This is due to the different light efficiency of the light source and the different color temperature. Some small manufacturers have originally low light efficiency, but in order to make customers look brighter, the color temperature is made higher, so that it looks brighter. In fact, it is not really bright, it is just the illusion of the human eye. Under this environment, vision will become worse and worse in the long run. If you recognize it, just use a light source, and then stand under the light to read the book. If the writing looks clear and bright, it means that the light source is better and the light efficiency is high. If you can’t see it clearly, it is bad. A simpler method is to reach out to the light source and look at the color of the palm. If it is rosy, it means that the color temperature is just right and the color rendering is good. If the heart is blue or purple, it means that the color temperature is too high.
Pay attention to the direct-lit floor lamp when purchasing, the lower edge of the lampshade is preferably lower than the eyes, so as not to make the eyes feel uncomfortable by the light bulb. In addition, the indoor light contrast will increase the eye load. Try to choose a floor lamp that can be dimmed. When in use, due to the direct lighting type of light, it is best to avoid mirrors and glass products near the reading position to avoid discomfort caused by reflections.
When purchasing a ceiling-mounted floor lamp, you must consider factors such as the height of the ceiling. If the ceiling is too low, the light can only be concentrated in local areas, which will make people feel that the light is too bright and not soft enough. At the same time, using a top-lit floor lamp, the ceiling of the home should be white or light-colored, and the material of the ceiling should have a certain reflective effect.
