When the downlight is used alone as the main light design, the ceiling will be relatively dark. You can try to use this semi-direct type floor lamp to make the overall light. appear more even.
Top-lit Floor Lamp
The top-lit floor lamp is a kind of indirect lighting. The light emitted by the light source is projected upward to the ceiling and then reflected back. Such reflected light is a kind of diffuse reflection, with soft light and strong atmosphere. But pay attention to the brightness of the upward projection to avoid over-illuminating the top of the ceiling, causing incongruity.
When choosing Chinese style or modern style, Nordic style, top-lit or direct-lit style, you should pay attention to the color of the floor lamp, the match between the style and the surrounding space, your own hobbies, usage scenarios, etc. to determine the basic style of the floor lamp. In addition, when choosing a floor lamp, you should also pay attention to the following aspects.
- Illumination uniformity, illuminance level
The illuminance of the floor lamp can reach the national standard A level or above, and the illuminance and illuminance uniformity can meet the requirements of general lighting reading. The floor lamp illuminates a larger area and a wider space, which is suitable for a larger range of lighting.
- Glare and Flicker Issues

- Color Temperature

- Material workmanship, structure and electrical properties

The design of the floor lamp is usually very strong, which makes the whole lamp effect more high-end.

There is also the problem of heat dissipation in the light-emitting part of the floor lamp. Poor heat dissipation treatment will affect the service life of the lamp.
II. What principles can you follow when purchasing?
There are many styles of floor lamps, and the materials are also different. If you look at them too much, you will inevitably lose your mind. When purchasing, you can follow the following 4 principles.
1. For up-lit floor lamps, consider the height and color of the ceiling.
The top-lit floor lamp is the light on the ceiling and then diffuses down, and the light is evenly distributed in the room. It is generally used in the living room, bedroom and other areas that need to relax and decompress. Therefore, the height of the ceiling will affect the lighting effect of the top-lit floor lamp. Taking a floor lamp with a height of 1.7m or 1.8m as an example, the height of the ceiling needs to exceed 2.4m to achieve the desired lighting effect.
If the ceiling is too low, the reflected light will only be concentrated in a local area, making the light too bright and not soft. If the ceiling color is dark, the light is absorbed and the reflection effect is not obvious. Therefore, using up-lighting floor lamps, the color of the ceiling in the home should be white, light-colored or with a reflective effect.
2. For direct lighting floor lamps, consider the line of sight height.
Direct lighting floor lamp, the light is concentrated, the local lighting is mainly, and the impact on other things around is small. It is generally used in situations that require a high degree of concentration, such as office work and reading.
When purchasing a direct-illuminated floor lamp, it should be noted that the lower edge of the lampshade should be lower than the human eye. If it is higher than the eyes, the light will hit the eyes and cause discomfort.
3. Shape the floor lamp, consider the style collocation.
Choose a modeling floor lamp, mainly to set off the atmosphere of the space, and take into account the lighting.
In the home, it is more like a “light sculpture” in the environment. When purchasing, you can match it according to the overall decoration style of your home.
4. Product quality depends on the light source and driver.
No matter how you choose, the material and shape only play a decorative effect, and the floor lamp, like other lamps, the light source, chip, and driver are the keys to determine its quality.
Choice of light source
The light source of the LED floor lamp is divided into an integrated light source and an independent light source. Generally, LED light sources are used. A good LED light source is optimistic about the parameters of luminous flux, color rendering index and color temperature. Therefore, the floor lamp with independent light source can be replaced by itself if the light source is not good, and the floor lamp with integrated light source is selected according to the above parameters, and the quality is passed.
Chips and drivers are the core
The quality of LED light source is composed of chips (determining the lower limit of quality), driving power (stability and lifespan), phosphors (important influence on the CRI), etc. The chips and drivers themselves are not good, there is no way to make the light source well, and there are not many manufacturers with R&D capabilities. When purchasing, you can consult the relevant after-sales service. Some brand floor lamps are repaired by lifetime warranty. If there are quality problems, the light source can be replaced free of charge.
Living Room Floor Lamps
The floor lamp is light and easy to move, which also makes it more practical.When reading or working, the softly focused light of the floor lamp will make people more focused.When watching TV, place a floor lamp in front of the TV to reduce the irritation of the TV to the eyes.
Bedroom Floor Lamps
It is placed in the bedroom, and the floor lamp is independently illuminated without affecting the rest of other members of the family.
If the home is not designed with main lights or the light source configuration in the early stage is insufficient. Combining floor lamps with other light sources is a wise decision.
When it comes to floor lamps, everyone also thinks of table lamps.
Reading Floor Lamp
Compared with the two, the floor lamp is more atmospheric, and the illumination area of the light is wider. It is more decorative when placed in the living room, study, etc.
And table lamps are generally placed on some cabinets or countertops, not as flexible and free as floor lamps. Of course, floor lamps and table lamps are sometimes used together to complement each other. Some floor lamps are also combined with side tables to increase functional properties.
III. How to place the floor lamp to look better?
The placement of the floor lamp is very particular, and it has a more decorative effect when placed.
1. Avoid the active area so as not to affect the daily movement.
2. It should not be placed next to tall furniture.
The floor lamp is placed next to tall furniture, the light will be blocked, and the lighting range formed will be greatly reduced.
3. Pay attention to match with other furniture.
If it is well matched, it will have a positive effect, but if it is not matched well, it will be ugly!
4. Can be near sofa or desk.
Do not place objects with reflective functions, such as mirrors, around the direct-illuminated floor lamp. Reflective objects will diffuse the light, and the eyes will be easily fatigued after a long time, which will also affect the atmosphere.
IV. Use & Maintenance
1. The place where the floor lamp is installed should reserve the socket in advance.
2. Disconnect power before cleaning.
3. Pay attention to cleaning and maintenance. You can wipe it with a dry rag, or you can use a feather duster, a vacuum cleaner, etc. to remove the dust on the surface.
