It’s easy to forget about lighting when you’re redecorating a home. Wall colors, textiles, accessories – there are so many other fun things to purchase. However, without a thoughtful lighting plan, those aforementioned items will appear washed out or harshly shadowed, or your home can lack the right balance of task and decorative lighting.
Tips for Creating Optimal Lighting Using Coastal Floor Lamps
Things can be further complicated if you live in an older home where overhead lighting is at a premium. Fortunately, Cottage & Bungalow offers a range of coastal floor lamps and table lamps that provide beautiful lighting year-round.
Balance task and ambient light. Our Arc Floor Lamp is a wonderful task light for readers and hobbyists, while the Tiffany Seaside Garden Floor Light casts a romantic and ethereal glow in a gentle wash of color.
Low, medium, and high. By providing a mix of floor and table lamps, rooms will be infused with light at different heights. Our Cinema Light makes an interesting conversation piece and works well in dark corners. Pair it with the Glass Funnel Beaker lamp on a nearby table.
No need to match. Complements and contrasts are all welcome in a lighting plan. There is no need to match all of your table and floor lamps. The Hansel Floor Lamp is an example of a neutral piece whose airy cylinder will work with a range of other lamp styles.
