Arc Floor Lamps & Overhang Floor Lamps
When you’re deciding on décor for your home, lighting is an essential element, and choosing the right lighting fixtures can make all the difference in creating the perfect atmosphere. Once you’ve decided on ceiling lighting, supplementary lighting like floor lamps is next. Arc floor lamps and overhang floor lamps are two types of lighting that have gained popularity due to their unique designs and versatile functionalities.
Arc floor lamps, sometimes referred to as arched floor lamps, feature a long arm that extends out from a base, forming an arc shape. This design allows the lampshade to hang over a seating area or a table, providing direct and focused light where it is needed. Overhang floor lamps have a similar design, but with the lampshade hanging down vertically from a long arm that stretches out from the base. Both arc and overhang floor lamps are ideal for providing ambient lighting in a room, or for lighting up a chair for reading, or a desk for work, as they provide a focused and adjustable light source that can hang over a specific spot.
Here, we will explore the different features and benefits of arc floor lamps and overhang floor lamps, including their unique designs, functionality, and how they can be incorporated into various interior design styles. Whether you're looking to add a touch of elegance to your living room or create a cosy reading nook in your bedroom, this guide will help you choose the perfect floor lamp to elevate your space.
Which rooms can I use arc and overhang floor lamps?
Arc and overhang floor lamps are pretty versatile lighting fixtures, which means that they can be used in a variety of rooms in the home, depending on the design of the space and the design of the lamp. The most popular spaces for arc and overhang floor lamps?
- Living Room: Arc floor lamps are a popular choice for living rooms as they provide a warm and inviting glow that can make the space feel cosier and inviting. They are perfect for illuminating a seating area, adding a focal point to the room, and creating a relaxed ambiance that is more intimate than ceiling lighting. Overhang floor lamps, are also ideal for providing focused light on a particular spot, such as a coffee table or a reading nook.
- Bedroom: A floor lamp can add both style and functionality to a bedroom. An arc floor lamp can be used to create a soft, ambient light that is perfect for unwinding after a long day. We’ve seen overhang floor lamps being positioned next to a bed, providing a focused light source for reading as an alternative to a bedside table lamp.
- Dining Room: Arc floor lamps can be used to provide overhead lighting for dining areas, particularly in rooms where the ceiling is lower, and a chandelier or pendant light is not an option. The extended arm of the arc floor lamp can provide a comfortable level of illumination above a dining table without getting in the way.
- Home Office: Overhang floor lamps are a good choice for home offices and study spaces. They can be placed to direct light where it is needed, making them an ideal choice for tasks such as reading, writing, or working on a computer.
- Conservatory: An arc floor lamp can add a touch of elegance to a conservatory, and provide overhead lighting where wiring ceiling lights might be tricky. They’re perfect where there’s a dining table in the conservatory space, or above a seating area – the choice is yours.
These aren’t the only spaces in the home that you might consider using an arc or overhang floor lamp – they are versatile lighting fixtures that can be used in almost any room of the house. When choosing any type of lighting, but including floor lamps, you’ll need to consider the functionality and design of the lamp to ensure that it fits the room’s style and lighting needs.
Why should I choose an arc or overhang floor lamp instead of a standard lamp?
Arc and overhang floor lamps are popular lighting options for several reasons. Here are some benefits of using these floor lamps in your home:
- One of the main reasons why arc and overhang floor lamps are so popular is their unique and stylish design. They can add a touch of sophistication and elegance to any room, making them a perfect choice for those looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal of their home.

- Floor lamps are an excellent space-saving option, especially for small apartments or rooms where space is at a premium. Arc and overhang floor lamps take up very little floor space, making them perfect for smaller rooms.
- Floor lamps provide practical lighting options that can be used in various situations, such as providing ambient lighting, task lighting, or accent lighting. They are also a great option for renters, or those who do not want to install permanent lighting fixtures – such as if you’re planning on redecorating the space in a couple of years.
- Arc and overhang floor lamps can create a warm and inviting ambiance that can enhance the overall feel of a room. They are perfect for adding a cosy and relaxing atmosphere to a living room or bedroom.

How are arc floor lamps and overhang floor lamps fitted?
Arc floor lamps and overhang floor lamps are typically very simple to install, since they plug into mains power, and simply switch on. This is perfect for rented properties, or for homes where installing new overhead lighting isn’t an option right now.

What colour temperature is best for floor lamps?
Colour temperature is an important consideration when choosing a floor lamp, as it can have a significant impact on the ambiance of a room. The colour temperature of a light source is measured in Kelvin (K) and can range from warm (lower Kelvin values) to cool (higher Kelvin values).
- Warm white light has a colour temperature of between 2700K and 3000K, and is often used in residential spaces. It provides a soft and cosy glow that is perfect for creating a relaxed and inviting ambiance. Warm white light is ideal for living rooms, bedrooms, and dining rooms, where a comfortable and warm atmosphere is desired.
- Cool white light has a colour temperature of between 4000K and 5000K, and is typically used in commercial and industrial spaces. It provides a bright, energizing light that is perfect for task-oriented activities, such as reading or working. Cool white light is ideal for home offices, study areas, and kitchens, where bright and focused light is required – definitely not ideal for bedrooms when you’re preparing for sleep!
- Daylight white light has a colour temperature of between 5000K and 6500K, and is usually used in spaces where natural light is limited. It provides a bright and crisp light that is perfect for creating an open and airy atmosphere. Daylight white light is ideal for entryways, bathrooms, and closets, where a bright and refreshing light is desired.
When selecting a colour temperature for your arc or overhang floor lamp, consider the purpose of the lamp and the overall mood and atmosphere you want to create in the room. Warm white light is perfect for creating a cosy and relaxing ambiance, while cool white and daylight white light are ideal for task-oriented activities and creating a bright and energizing atmosphere.
