Floor lamps are better off when placed on a quite type of place since it lets out a light with a silent tone. It matches the mood of the room, the flickering of wood burning on a fireplace, and a good cold weather. Floor lamps can only illuminate a corner of the room which gives its disadvantage unless you want to have a lamp in the middle of the living room table.

Table or Desk Lamps

Table and Desk lamps are smaller versions of floor lamps. Obviously, these lamps are placed in the center of the table or one side of the desk. These type of lamps can often be found in bedrooms, lying above a small wood cabinet near the bed and matched with a telephone. Also, desk lamps are very useful in study tables since it gives more focus and brightness to the book. Reading in dark rooms are not efficient for the eyes.

Chandeliers, on the other hand, are more formal than pendants. It is made up mostly of glass and light bulbs. The light from the bulbs will pass through the transparent glass and will add more beauty to the illuminating light. Chandeliers are placed in rooms with high ceilings to give elegance on top. But, it is more costly than pendants due to its multiple glass content.
