一. What is a floor lamp
Floor standing lamps are called floor standing lamps in English. floor standing lamps are generally composed of brackets, lampshades, and light sources. The bracket or base is matched with the lampshade, and the light source is halogen lamp, energy saving lamp, LED, etc. The commonly used light source is LED.
二．Several reasons to buy floor standing lamps
The floor lamp is easy to move, colorful, tall and straight, or graceful, with a unique decorative effect. It can be used as auxiliary lighting in the living room and bedroom, and can also be used in the study room for reading.
The floor lamp is used as a local lighting, and is often used with desks, single chairs, sofas, and TV cabinets. It looks tasteful and fashionable. As a sofa companion, it is often used in the reception area.
floor standing lamps are masters of atmosphere creation!
Compared with desk lamps, floor standing lamps illuminate a wider area. For example, the illuminated area needed to practice piano is wider, and it is more suitable to use floor standing lamps.
When there is no main lamp design, the roof is relatively dark, and the semi-direct lighting floor lamp is used to achieve the effect of light balance.
三．how to choose a floor lamp
1. According to style
(1) Chinese classical style
The lamp holder is mainly made of bamboo and wood, and the lampshade is mainly made of various Chinese characteristic flannel and silk yarns, with Chinese elements such as flowers, birds, and ink. The shape is fashionable and dignified, and the light is soft.
(2) Modern and fashionable
Modern and fashionable floor standing lamps are mostly made of metal elements, and the shades are mostly solid colors, such as black, gray, simple and fashionable. Or the shape is unique and modern.
(3) Nordic style
The Nordic style mostly uses some natural materials, and most of them are relatively simple, without various patterns and patterns, pursuing natural and practical. The Nordic style floor lamp will make people have a strong sense of exoticism, as if being in a foreign country.
2. According to the light type
(1) Omnidirectional diffusion type: no lampshade
(2) Direct illumination:
The light shines directly on the target area, which is similar to the function of a desk lamp. It is often used as area lighting and can be used for reading, reading, and newspaper reading.
(3) Semi-direct illumination
Both omnidirectional diffusion and direct illumination characteristics
When the downlight is used alone for the design without the main light, the ceiling will be relatively dark. You can try to use this semi-direct illuminated floor lamp to make the overall light appear more uniform
Top-illumination is a kind of indirect lighting. The light from the light source is projected upward to the ceiling and then reflected back. This kind of reflected light is a kind of diffuse reflection, soft light and strong atmosphere. But pay attention to the brightness projected upwards, and avoid over-illuminating the top of the ceiling, causing disharmony.
When choosing between Chinese style, modern style, Nordic style, top-illuminated style or direct-illuminated style, pay attention to the color, style and surrounding space collocation, your hobbies, use scenes, etc. to determine the basic style.
In addition, when choosing lamps and lanterns, also pay attention to the following aspects
1. Optical Design
(1) Illumination uniformity: illuminance level
The illuminance of the floor lamp should be above the national standard A level, and the illuminance and uniformity of illuminance 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.
(2) Illumination of floor lamp: glare and strobe
Pay attention to no video flicker, and no discomfort such as dizziness under the light, which means that the glare problem of the lamp can be dealt with.
(3) Color temperature
If it is used for lighting purposes such as reading, a color temperature of 4000k is generally selected. If it is used to adjust the atmosphere, a color temperature of 3000-3500k is generally used.
(4) Anti-blue light level, etc.
The anti-blue light level only needs to reach the specified standard, and the general requirement is above RO0.
2. Material workmanship, structure and electrical characteristics
Some floor standing lamps are made of metal, some are turned wood, and some are made of natural materials or plastics. The lampshade is generally fabric or PVC. The design sense of the floor lamp is usually very strong, making the whole lamp effect more high-end. The structural design of the floor lamp will affect its stability, optical characteristics and heat dissipation performance. So when choosing a floor lamp, pay attention to its stability. In addition, whether the light of the floor lamp is designed to be anti-glare, that is, if people are within the illumination range of the floor lamp, there is no discomfort. There is also the heat dissipation problem of the light-emitting part of the floor lamp, and poor heat dissipation treatment will affect the service life of the lamp.
The current light source of floor standing lamps is generally LED light source. Although LED is more energy-efficient than incandescent lamps and other light sources, when electric energy is converted into light energy, part of it is still converted into heat energy. Although it does not generate much heat, the light-emitting principle of LED light source is to use The LED chip emits light, and the chip is afraid of heat. Heat will cause the junction temperature of the chip to increase, which will cause the luminous flux to decrease. If the luminous flux is only 70% of the original, it means that the life of the LED has expired. This leads to a shorter life of LED lamps. Therefore, LED lamps consider heat dissipation from the inside of the chip, mainly using good chip bonding materials with high thermal conductivity, and mainly using good heat dissipation materials and heat dissipation structure design from the outside. Therefore, the floor lamp should be maintained well, and the place where the floor lamp is placed should be conducive to heat dissipation.
The lampshade of the floor lamp is easy to be contaminated with dust, so if you are afraid of trouble, you can choose the easy-to-clean plastic lampshade instead of the hollowed-out lampshade. floor standing lamps should be wiped and maintained frequently to keep them beautiful and prolong their service life. In addition, those who purchase lamps should pay attention to how long the warranty period is.
The floor lamp is stable by the base, and it may move frequently. So be sure to choose a more stable base. This is safer to use. Are there relevant certifications? floor standing lamps are within the scope of 3C certification, so they must have 3C certification. Some lamps have also undergone vibration tests, salt spray tests and so on. The more certifications, the more guarantees the product has.
