Buying Guide - Reading floor lamps

In addition to improving flair in a room, the installation of reading floor lamps offers a simple, convenient, and affordable lighting approach. Listed below are essential factors to consider when selecting reading floor lamps to ensure you get the most suitable option available.

Important Factors to Consider When Selecting Reading Floor Lamps

1. Light fixtures
The type of installation to use is probably the most important element to consider when choosing a reading floor lamp. You should determine which option is preferable for you between overhead lighting, reading next to a window, and a more concentrated light. Reading in dim light places a significant and uncomfortable strain on eye muscles. Although your visual muscles need relaxation to collect the most light, they will also try to contract so as to keep the words focused on the retina. Directly focusing bright light where it is required when completing a high-concentration task like reading reduces the conflict in eye muscles. Your best option here is installing floor lamps with multi-directional capabilities seeing as you can always swivel, raise, or lower such lights to direct the light.

2. Light distribution
In the same way having a lamp that concentrates light on your reading material is important, evenly distributed lighting is also of uttermost importance. Switching on a bright light inside a dark room for reading purposes is one of the most common mistakes people make. Pupils usually dilate in response to the darkness whenever they wander off the page, causing the eyes to become easily fatigued, which is why you quickly tire out when reading in bed at night. You should also avoid glare when reading seeing as the constant shifting of pixels puts significant strain on the eye.

3. Brightness
You will most likely need comparatively more reading light as your eyes get older since eyes vary with age. Studies show that the eye's need for more reading light increases 1% every year. It is, however, notable that too much light or glare often is just as harmful as too little light. Glaring light from highly reflective surfaces is fatiguing and quite disturbing, especially for the elderly, who usually have cataracts and retina problems. As such, using a shaded lamp helps to reduce glare and moderate light. Your eyes will show signs of fatigue such as brow-ache, burning, redness, or squinting if the light is uncomfortable. You might also develop a headache.

Why You Should Avoid Glare

As a matter of fact, brighter light is not always better, especially since excessive brightness and contrast often produce glare. Direct glare is caused by bright lights while the reflection of light from highly reflective surfaces such as computer screens causes reflected glare.

Visibility is only possible through the reflection and transmission of light. Increasing the amount of light falling on an object increases its brightness, improving visibility, especially when its surrounding is less bright. However, this also enhances the amount of contrast between that particular object and its surrounding. Unfortunately, too much brightness and contrast often produce glare.

By putting significant strain on the eye, glare often results in several effects, some of which pose severe repercussions. The effects of glare include virtual blindness, fatigue, and physical irritations such as squinting, a burning sensation, and redness of the eye.

Recommended Lumens for Reading

You may have noticed that new and sometimes unfamiliar technologies such as LED bulbs line the shelves of most home improvement stores in place of the once common incandescent bulbs. For starters, getting rid of every idea you have about incandescent equivalencies before you purchase LED light bulbs is important since manufacturers do not have an agreed-upon standard for determining equivalent wattages. You should, therefore, be thinking of lumens in place of watts. Lumens represent the amount of ambient light emitted by a lamp. Although how many lumens you need for reading varies based on both design and color scheme of a room, a good rule of thumb is 50 lumens per square foot.

Lighting Tips for the Aging Eyes

You can do a few things with lighting to help you see much better regardless of whether you are visually impaired or have a healthy aging vision. Boosting the lighting in your home is one of the simplest and most efficient ways to improve your vision. Below are tips to get you started.

Use an adjustable reading floor lamp: Reading in bed could be pleasurable again if you add a reading floor lamp near your bed seeing as it allows you to shine light directly onto the pages you are reading. In addition to adjustable arms that allow raising and lowering of the light, many reading lamps feature pivoting shades that help to direct light wherever it is needed.

Get the right bulb: Test several different types of lighting to determine the most suitable one for you. Full spectrum bulbs increase contrast and clarity, reducing glare, which is quite ideal if you suffer from low vision. You should also consider energy efficiency and lumens when selecting a bulb.

Add a floor lamp: Consider a fluorescent-bulb torchiere if you need to actually brighten up a small dim space seeing as such floor lamps direct light toward the ceiling, which creates an indirect, easy-on-the-eyes lighting effect.

Use night lights: You might find colored LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights preferable since they emit soft, easy on the eyes light, which improves visibility. Additionally, the yearly expense of using LED lights is quite minimal.

Add table lamps: For excellent walking-around-light and assistance in illuminating the content of drawers, install table lamps. Opt for a suitably sized lamp between 22 and 30 inches high as well as a shade that isn’t too opaque to get the best illumination. Your choice should, however, depend on available space and your needs.

Why You Should Use LED Lighting For Reading Purposes

Regardless of the duration LED lights stay on, they do not get hot, which means they produce less heat than incandescent and CFL lights. Although some LED lights might feel warm to the touch, they do not cause the build-up of heat due to the featured metal heat sinks that draw heat from the LED chip itself. The heat produced by incandescent and CFL lights usually strains the eye, which often leads to fatigue, various physical irritations, and even virtual blindness, especially when used for reading. As such, using LED lights is more beneficial since it eliminates the possibility of such issues. The reduced amounts of glare provided by LED lights also contributes to ensuring visual well-being. Also, LED lights are dimmable, which allows for the adjustment of brightness to suitable levels depending on individual preference.
