When choosing a floor lamp for a room, consider the function. Are you buying it for modest, clear lighting or for more powerful lighting to illuminate the entire space in your room? For whatever purpose it will serve, you’ll want to know the minimum and maximum lumens for that floor lamp. Lumen is the measure of the level of brightness in the light.
For a living room space, you will want 1500 to 3000 lumens to brighten the room.
Floor lamps do come with some added features like a tray lamp design, an adjustable lamp design, and lamps with magnifiers. Having an adjustable lamp design is nice for directing light, and lamps with magnifiers produce focused beams which makes it easier to perform small tasks.
