The lighting in your home can have a huge impact on your daily life. A well-lit room is welcoming and comfortable. Whether you want to create a place for reading and relaxation, a romantic atmosphere or a room which is capable of switching between the two, choosing the right lighting is one of the best ways to achieve these goals. If you don’t fancy ripping down ceilings and redecorating, try adding one of these floor lamps to your home for a new chic look at home.

When it comes to adding extra lighting options for your home, the best floor lamps are the ones which fulfill all your needs. This may depend on the activity for which you need the extra light, the room in which you are adding the extra light or the interior design of the room. It’s important to remember that too much light can be as bad for your eyes as too little. Additionally, lighting can also be used to make spaces appear more or less spacious. By taking these elements into account, it’s easy to find a new floor lamp that fits the bill.

We’ve put together a list of the 10 best floor lamps available for purchase online. The list includes lamps with dimmers, lamps in a minimalist style and others that include built-in shelves.
