Proper lighting is one of, if not the most important, elements of a room's design. It doesn't matter how well decorated or put together a room is — if the lighting is inadequate, you won't be able to enjoy it. Proper lighting is also important for ocular health. As Scrivens warns, bad lighting can cause blurry vision, irritated eyes, headaches, fatigue, and become a safety hazard if you can't see where you're going.

Ambient lighting is also an aspect of a well-designed room. A cozy reading corner or display table could look even better with a pop of warm lighting while also making it easier to see things at night. Floor lamps don't just provide good lighting, but they also add a decorative touch to a room. There's a floor lamp for every type of aesthetic and design preference, price range, and effectiveness. Keep reading for lamp inspiration to brighten your home.
