Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays floor lamps have to meet UL standards where the bases are heavier so that it won`t easily tip over. However ages ago antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can`t easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
When you hear the word "lamp" what image do you think of? You probably imagine that table lamp on your bed`s nightstand which sheds some light on your bedtime reading. Or maybe you think about the lamp sitting on the console table in the hallway which greets you just before you enter or exit the house. Or perhaps you remember the end table in your recreational room where you set the glass of your favorite beverage as you catch a game or movie on TV.
Also an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method you can enjoy the elegance of antique design and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
Knowing the goal of the lighting determines where and just how you put it and perhaps just how much you pay to buy. Do you really need light in a corner for accent then think of a more ornate colorful shade? Do you want a soft light is a baby`s room or soft light in a conversational sitting area then consider a torchiere style with the shade turned upward. Needless to say for reading go for a floor lamp that allows two to three light bulbs with a shade turned down. Remember the room balance in all of this. You can use the placement to balance the area for those who have other tall large furniture pieces on an opposite wall.
