A floor lamp or reading is a versatile addition to your home that can be used in multiple ways. You can place it in your living room to add a decorative punch or put it behind your couch to illuminate the area above you when sitting down for an evening of book reading and movies. They’re also often seen in bedroom areas as a functional reading light that can help prevent eye strain from too much overhead lighting. These lamps come in a variety of styles, so it’s important to choose one that fits the design scheme of your space and the furniture you already have.
When choosing a lamp for reading, you’ll want to consider the brightness and overall color of the bulb. The best reading lamps will typically have a “degrees Kelvin” rating of around 3,500 – 6,000 to produce a bright, yet comfortable reading light. This light will be closer to the spectrum of sunlight and will be easiest on your eyes.

Torchiere floor lamps are another great choice for reading. They usually have a primary light that’s ideal for uplighting the ceiling and a reading arm that branches off of the pole to offer focused task lighting for reading. They can be used in home offices as well to add a touch of modern flair or placed in a foyer to brighten the entranceway.
